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!

    Mooi! Een beetje fitties met die wijde rok. Het enige nadeel aan wikkeljurken vind ik op de fiets: dan vallen ze altijd zo open.

    • December 13, 2016 / 11:59 am

      Bij deze valt het wel mee, het valt ook niet open als je zit.

  2. December 13, 2016 / 1:37 pm

    Leuk jurkje, staat je goed. Vind de combi met het spijkerjasje erg leuk.

    • December 13, 2016 / 1:58 pm

      Dankjewel! Ik koop nooit geen zomers, ik draag altijd een spijker jasje en op jurkjes geeft het altijd iets stoers! Doe je vrijdag mee aan de win actie?

  3. December 13, 2016 / 1:43 pm

    OH YES, WRAP DRESSES!!! Yours look like it’s fabric, not jersey. What a great idea. And the V-neck, fantastic. Don’t you just hate the very high necklines that almost seem to strangle you? A V-neck is so much better.

    • December 13, 2016 / 1:59 pm

      Thank you Tiina, yes I love a V neck but it is so hard to find. This dress is cotton with elastine.

    • December 13, 2016 / 2:40 pm

      Ha ha ha, nee deze zijn Tamaris. Moeten we een keer samen een post doen, met dezelfde laarzen! 🙂

  4. December 13, 2016 / 2:47 pm

    You look great in this dress Nancy. I like it with the denim jacket. Fabulous! I found a Diane von Fürstenberg Dress for Sarah in London at Oxfam 🙂

    • December 13, 2016 / 2:55 pm

      Oh really? Are you going to show it? Or Sarah of course.

    I love how you placed your brooch at the waist like that!! And the fact that your earrings float on your collar of the dress is spectacular!!

    • December 13, 2016 / 3:19 pm

      Thank you Jodie!

    • December 13, 2016 / 4:39 pm

  7. December 14, 2016 / 11:41 am

    Sexy en hele leuke vorm. Ik hou wel van zo’n jurk. Al past niet iedere model van wikkeljurk bij mij. 🙂

    • December 14, 2016 / 12:43 pm

      Maar je hebt ook de wat strakkere aangesloten modellen. Die draag ik zelf ook vaker! 🙂

  8. December 14, 2016 / 12:29 pm

    Dat staat je goed.

    Oh wauw Nancy, wat een leuke jurk. En zeer draagbaar! Daar hou ik ook van!

    Wat een mooie jurk, dit model flatteert eigenlijk altijd, ongeacht je “model”.

    • December 16, 2016 / 1:31 pm

      Dankjewel! Vaak vind ik dit soort jurken mooier staan bij een vollere vrouw!

  12. December 16, 2016 / 6:29 pm

    That dress is so versatile, and it looks so pretty on you. Love it with the denim jacket. Hope you have a great weekend!

      Thank you, I wish you a great weekend!

  13. December 18, 2016 / 7:55 pm

    Ik hou van zulke jurken :-). Zeker een beetje stoer met die laarzen en het spijkerjasje.

    • December 18, 2016 / 9:26 pm

      Ja hè, ik vind sowieso een spijker jasje op een jurk heel leuk!

    • December 22, 2016 / 12:12 pm
