I don’t think that anyone would ever accuse me of being a a girly girl, but there is just something about these dresses that makes me want to throw my hat in the ring with the ladies. And my white gloves, of course.
I know that fashion is an art form, blah blah blah, but I find myself mostly unimpressed. Perhaps that’s too strong of a word. I just think that there’s a lot of fashion out there that is pretty good, but very few things that really blow me away. Dior’s Spring collection blows me away.
It’s sculptural, it’s architectural, it’s feminine. It’s like Disney princess with its ice-cream shades and billowing skirts, only grown up. These dresses manage to somehow be vintage and oh-so-modern at the same time. And can we just talk about the hair? That’s it. I’m abandoning my ponytails.
These dresses make me wish that I was somehow rich or famous, or at least had an opportunity to get to wear something like this someday. Hell, I’d settle just to even see one in person. It’s the kind of craftsmanship and attention to detail that you just don’t see anymore. Why can’t we all just dress like this all of the time?
