What to Wear: Updated DVF


Photography by David Kim.

One of my best friend’s mothers gave me this dress (thank you, Bev!!). She is an incredible woman who has an eye for the best pieces. Last year she went to a book party for Diane von Furstenberg and wore one of the designer’s original wrap dresses. Diane even offered to buy it from her.

DK1_5541Bev asked Diane which dress was the new go-to in the collection and Diane picked this one out personally. She said she felt like it could go anywhere – from the office to drinks or on a date, etc.


Diane von Furstenberg dress (can’t find online but similar concept great shifts here and here), J Crew shirt, Kate Spade bag and bracelet, Ivanka Trump “Carra” pump, similar here.

DK1_5932I have to agree. While the hemline is a bit shorter than what I usually wear, it looks fantastic with flats and I’ve covered my arms here (with my favorite layering piece, also seen here and here) to keep the look professional for the office.

DK1_5977The wrap dress will probably never be replaced in my wardrobe, but this shift dress is a treasure that I plan to enjoy for years to come.

What is your perfect-for-everything dress?
