I never embraced the wrap trend. Don’t get me wrong, DVF’s iconic dress is something I would kill to have in my closet, but I never really had the desire to shell out the money for such an item. Frankly, I never saw the appeal of the wrap and never thought it particularly flattering, until recently. A few weeks ago I popped into Ann Taylor and browsed the clearance section as I sometimes do. Out jumped one of my favorite colors: royal blue. I took this blouse into the dressing room and tried it on, and surprisingly the “faux” wrap look was flattering. I loved the metal detail, the draped fabric, and the low neckline. And after seeing Taylor in a wrap dress (a fellow pear!) I might just have to pop into my local Old Navy and get her same dress, that is until the DVF stunner becomes mine.
A little wrinkled from a day of sitting but still a great piece at an amazing price.
On an unrelated note, I found a hair tool that has become a new favorite: the clipless curling iron. I have this one and I love what it does to my hair. I let my hair naturally air dry, brush it out so it gets all nice and frizzy, and take sections and curl straight onto it. This is the result. Pretty snazzy huh?!
I’m thinking of doing a full tutorial on it soon. Comment if you’d like to see it!
