I find it weird every time I want to buy something specifically, whether it's a dress, a pair of shoes, sunglasses or handbag, I can spend the whole day shopping, dig in every corner of the mall, yet still go home with empty hands and disappointment. When I don't feel like buying anything, I always chance upon a treasured item that leaves me no choice but to bring it home. Buying this cut-out circle dress within 5 minutes while I was window-shopping is an example.
The wasp waist with full circle bottom reminds me of 1950s fashion in which women always looked undeniably sophisticated and feminine. I have to admit I'm a true slave of this style, and I have yet to see when will I stop loving it. As if the classic silhouette dress in beige color wasn't attractive enough for me to buy, the shop owner turned the dress around to show me the cut-out back with a big bow on it. I was sold, completely.
Not every day I can find a dress that has the consummate combination of modern and classic, with the most simple details, in the most basic color, yet still looks breathtaking like that. I thought, what would be better to pair this iconic dress with my favorite Dior sunglasses, a pair of black gloves, black heels and statement necklace to bring me back to 1950s. I wish I could go back in time to witness how fashion designer Christian Dior first dominated fashion scenes in those years.
Thank you so much for reading!
