I love dresses. I mean I really love them. I find them to be so easy.
A dress is a complete outfit – instantly. I especially love dresses in a fabric with interesting prints. This is probably the case because during my recent scarf-wearing days, I found it challenging (impossible, actually) to wear prints because they conflicted with my bald head attire.
However, now I am able to wear said dresses to detract attention from the strange pattern of my hair growth (that is NOT a complaint, by the way!).
Speaking of which, my budding hair looks like a baby chick’s fur on the side of my head, just above my ears (literally the whispy strands stand out sideways). The back of my head looks like a cyclone. Literally. One big circle. Quite the site. Again, NOT a complaint. More like entertainment.
I diverge. Back to dresses. They make me feel pretty, put together and feminine. When I worked for Ralph Lauren, I loved selling dresses because they easily relieved the nerves of a buyer who fretted over putting an outfit together. A dress is the piece to literally put on and walk out the door.
Below are my favorite dresses, both patterned and solid, from the Pre-fall and Fall 2011 Collections.
So, there you have my dress wish list for the upcoming season…and now you know about my not-so-secret love of dresses!
