Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 1

Happy Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us! For the month of December, I’m going to feature one designer dress a day providing inspiration for your upcoming holiday parties, or if you’re anything like me, the dresses I would wear to my fancy dress balls in my far more exciting inner life.

Kicking off the First Day of Dress-tivus is this Carolina Herrera Off the Shoulder High Low Gown.

Fantasy Fashion League: Carolina Herrera Edition

Welcome to my Fantasy Fashion League. There are no points, winners, or losers – just an appreciation of fashion. Speaking of fantasies, one of mine includes time traveling department stores that take me back to the ’50s and ’60s where I can stock up on clothes. I love the tailored, clean lines, and quality fabrics of that era. Nowadays I’m very disappointed by the selection at my go-to stores. Everything looks so disposable, but I digress.

Thanks to Hollywood and the Awards Show circuit, January through March happens to be my favorite time of year. For the past 35 years, Carolina Herrera has been designing for celebrities and First Ladies alike. Her designs evoke the spirit of Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy with her classic yet fun, feminine style. If Carolina would so kindly lend me her clothes, I would wear these pieces every day for the rest of my life.
