BLACK SKATER/WRAP DRESS CASUAL WAY

A skater/wrap dress for the holidays.

I love skater/wrap dresses. Also wrap skirts and simply wraps! Haha, as long as there is food involved it’s fine by me. Talking about food, I just received a cookbook that I had won. And oh my, there are fabulous recipes in it. It’s about cooking without ready-made sauces and marinades. I don’t like ready-made stuff. Okay back to the dress. This is called a skater dress, but to me it’s more a wrap dress. When I saw this one I knew I had to have it. Sigh, don’t I always… I love bows and lately, like I had said last week, I like wider dresses. The downside to this dress, and actually that of last week too, is that the skirt is very wide. Have you got any idea how long it takes to iron it! And if there is one thing I hate to do, it’s ironing.

Who what where skater/wrap dress.

The wrapdress has actually become very famous by Diane von Fürstenberg. But she was not the first who designed the wrap dress. The design originates from the thirties, again from the sportsworld like the skater dress from last week. In the early seventies Diane von Fürstenberg designed a knee-long model with elastic waist and that dress became so popular that she is known as the designer of the wrap dress. And she designed beautiful dresses!

I find a wrap dress always very feminine. And it also has always a V-neck! Yeah! But I have styled it today in a casual way. With a denim jacket, which is always good to wear on a dress, and cognac boots. This is really going to be a dress I will wear very often. I had on Friday said that these pictures would also not be very good. But I hope you can see the brooche a bit. What a nice one huh. I believe I spend 1 euro on it. Crazy right! Because after my purchase of a dragonfly brooche in England in an antique shop, I just order them online. I told this before, but I bought a dragonfly brooche last May in Hastings and I lost it. So when I went back in September I wanted to buy another one in the same store. And there were three of the same dragonfly lying there! And I thought it would be authentic! I bought the same one and when I , a few months later, was browsing for brooches onlin, guess what: my dragonfly was online on a Chinese site! No more antique stores for me! Lol. I bought several lately, an owl, grapes , I love them. Fortunately next weekend it becomes slightly warmer, making photographs of dresses while freezing outside is not my idea of fun!
