Anna Sui Dress

I came across this dress in late December (after all of the holiday parties were over), and was extremely excited to wear it, but all suitable occasions had past. I held onto it through January and February, admiring it as it hung in my closet, but never putting it on. Then one rainy March morning, I decided that enough was enough! A dress this fantastic doesn’t need an occasion!! So I pulled out my camera.

There’s always a very sweet feminine, girly aspect…a touch of nostalgia.  There’s also the aspect of trendiness; the hipness I try to create by always adding a rock-and-roll coolness.  There’s always that ambiguity…the Good Girl/Bad Girl thing.  All these facets have to go into my designs, or it doesn’t look like “Anna Sui”.

This (slightly incomplete) outfit definitely leans more towards the “good girl” aspect of the dress. Every inch of lace is completely on display. But I have plans to see if I can’t bring out the rock-and-roll. Maybe leather leggings and 5″ heels?! More pictures are definitely to come.

In the mean time, check out Anna Sui’s shop. So many gorgeous things!

Thought that I might as well slide one more picture in! This was the last shot that I took… I was poised and ready… then I slipped. The camera caught me just as I fell out of the window sill.
