The power of the DVF wrap dress

What do these 5 photos have in common?
I first found this blue wrap dress while shopping consignment and living in Sydney, Australia, I knew right away that this wrap dress was a knock off of the infamous DFV wrap dress. Diane Von Furstenberg is a fashion icon and fabulous female entrepreneur. The dress fit me like a glove – the wrap dress is suited for most body types. I loved it and felt great in it.

When I moved to San Francisco, I was eager to go consignment shopping. Lo and behold, I found the same DVF knock off, same color, same wrap, same size, different label. I bought it. I cut the SF dress to wear as a shirt so I could have the versatility from this dress I love.

Next I saw this image of DVF and I had to compare it to my ‘selfie’ wearing my knock off and Boom! There it is, me, side by side with DVF!

Shortly after that, I noticed this image on the wallpaper in my bathroom, of a woman wearing the same dress pattern, though not a wrap dress, I thought it may have been an inspiration for Miss DVF. Yes, my bathroom is wallpapered with Pre-War Shanghai posters showcasing “the modern woman” – quite appropriate for me…I knew I had to add it to this collection.

Recently I went to SFMOMA and as I walked into the main entrance,
I was greeted by this massive graphic above me, yes, this pattern and color was very familiar to me and I had to take the photo of it to compare it with these dresses. Boom, again! 

This past week while hunting the shops on Haight Street, I saw this shiny dress hanging above me, I could not deny the pattern and color and had to add it to this collection. I’m just waiting for the next one to share with you!
