You know those questions people sometimes ask you? The ones about “If you had to pick just one store/brand to shop in for the rest of your life, which would it be?” We hate those questions. Seriously, who could possibly answer that? For one thing, our style might change in the course of a lifetime, and we’re pretty sure we won’t be wearing the same things as 90 year old we did as 25 year olds. Well, not EXACTLY the same, anyway. Then there are seasonal and lifestyle factors to take into account, too. What if you chose a store/brand that didn’t do swimswear, for instance? Or which did fabulous party wear, but left you totally unequipped for a walk in the park, say. Conclusion: it’s just not possible or advisable to stick to one brand for everything, or for the rest of your life.
Other than with dresses, of course.
When it comes to dresses, we’re fairly sure Vivienne Westwood could keep us happily clothed forever. We’d never get tired of her wonderful creations, and we’re confident we’d find something to suit almost every occasion,
This dress, for instance, would be our winter cocktail party dress. The metallic jacquard has a sumptuous, Christmassy feel to it, the cut is tailored to perfection, exactly as we would expect from Dame Viv, and it’s unusual enough to feel special, but classic enough to stand the test of time.
It’s also $765, but then again, this IS a fantasy, after all…
