I’ve written about it before, but one of the most exquisite worlds you’ll ever visit is the world created by designer Ralph Lauren. And by “worlds,” I mean the existence that he has created for himself that extends into the brand and beyond. It doesn’t matter what your exposure is to the brand, it’s about living well with esteem, with a world where one expects the best. I’m incredibly fortunate that they give me a chance to attend his show every season because, for me, it’s always a reminder that life is literally dripping with wonder and joy. He’s one of my heroes. I adore him.
When I attended the Spring 2013 runway presentation of the Lauren Ralph Lauren collection a couple of months ago, the collection was chock full of amazing, wearable and affordable pieces that could really impact any wardrobe. I called the gals over at Ralph Lauren and asked if they’d be kind enough to send over some items from the collection so I could show you a few select pieces that are just literally yelling “Pick me! PICK ME!” at your local retailer. From the runway to my body, this is one of my favorite dresses.
On the hanger, it looks like a coral shift dress with some pleating. But when you put it on, it immediately turns into this “Well, HELLO THERE!” look that will have heads turning, jaws dropping and chairs falling wherever you go.
I’m not rocking any shapewear under this dress; it’s cut so well that it lifts, pulls and tucks everything in. In short, it’s a Secret Weapon dress.
This might be an option for date #2. Gals, want to make ’em sweat? This is your moment. Get this dress.
