Let’s start off with The Dress. Now, when I become a rich and famous writer, I intend to be feted in the appropriate way! I want soirees held inside my mansion, awards ceremonies dedicated to me, and of course, the right gown for them all. You know what I mean. The dress that is simply, The Dress for That Occasion. The cameras will flash and bulbs will pop; my Dress will sparkle and catch that light at the exact perfect angle. The spotlights will dim and my Dress will swirl like smoke around my legs, ethereal and dreamy. The night will be black as pitch before I leave my parties, but somehow I’ll still be shining with an inner tumescence. Don’t be fooled, it’s not me. It’s my Dress. And that is why I love Marchesa. Look at this dress!
Why do I not own it? Why am I not draping myself in its airy organza and glowing cream tones? Admire the golden details on the waist. Note the frothy ruffles, like whips of the lightest meringue. Remember what I said about dim spotlights? This is That Dress. Let’s take a look at this next one, with both Halle Berry and the model wearing it:
Those threads running throughout the dress are pure gold. Metaphorically. This dress is about the flashing cameras, the bright lights reflecting hundreds of shimmers cascading from my body. My eyes will have some tough competition when it comes to sparkling. And the shape! Instant hourglass. Perfectly nipped in at the waist and gliding down to elongate and make the legs slender. Hello cameras, this Dress says, arching an eyebrow. And my third selection- This Dress:
- Marchesa Spring 09
You have to look at the detailed picture, but you can see it- This Dress has sequins on the boning of the corset. The tulle is a cloud, demurely covering the knees and giving the left shoulder a hint of shadow. The flowers make me sigh in happiness. It’s a dark color and the rosettes might not be everyone’s favorite look, but I love it. In this Dress, I’d be floating all night long.
The perfect finishing touch: Shoes. Christian Louboutin shoes. I’ve picked out two pairs that I adore. Enjoy staring!! For hours. And hours. And HOURS. I will be.
