This is ridiculously random, but sometimes I think to play a little game with myself. It goes something along the lines of, if I could any have designer purse right now, which would it be? Same for shoes, jewelry, dresses, etc, etc. I have built up a very extensive dream wardrobe.
The latest addition to my dream wardrobe is this fall 2010 Versus dress. Versus is the collaboration between Versace and Christopher Kane, and basically my clothing soulmate. I heart this dress. The cut is extremely flattering--just the right amount of emphasis on the bust, a fitted waist, and that fab, flared out a-line skirt. Then you add in the lingerie inspiration and the subtle contrast between colors and textures of the bordeaux velvet and the black satin. It's so sweetly retro and yet so intensely vampy at the same time. I can't find it for sale online, but I'm guessing it's between $2,000 and $3,000, so probably not a realistic choice. All the same, I die.
Christian Louboutin Rolandzip Suede Pumps, $795 at net-a-porter.com, Christian Louboutin Palais Royal Clutch, $2,565 at net-a-porter.com: I'd pair it with these Christian Louboutin pumps. I wouldn't want anything that would distract too much from the dress, so these basic black pumps are great. The zipper running down the heel adds just enough spice to keep them from being boring. Since there's so much edginess going on, I like the girly contrast of this clutch. The silver hardware ties in with the detail on the heels, the pink works with the red of the dress, and the lace goes with the overall slightly Victorian Gothic theme.
Gaaah, it's killing me. Do y'all have any dream pieces?
