Every now and then I find myself itching to find an Audrey Hepburn-esque dress. I search to no avail and I let the luke warm dream go. Yes, I admit, luke warm. Now, the desire is not so luke warm, being that I have come across a great basic black dress that has me leaning in.
The launch of Dita Von Tees's fashion line took place this past week. I have always had a love/hate relationship with Ms. Teese. Hate is strong word, but appease the figure of speech. As an anti-porn feminist, I take issue with her line of work, but as an admirer of art and costume, I love her glamour, creativity and sense of play. That, and I find her to be one of the most becoming women I've ever seen.
She executes vintage grace with her new line. The dress that I love is called "The Second Look Dress."
"There is a very simple, sleek black vintage dress I wear often, and one of my most elegant friends loves this dress, often stating it is so simple, yet it is the height of chic, with nothing to distract from the beauty of woman. I love to wear extravagant clothes, but every woman must remember to also have something simple but sexy to wear. I called this the "Second Look" dress because it may not seem like much, but when you slip into it with it's figure-hugging power- mesh interior, you're bound to get a second look!
Although, Hepburn's most famous dress is sleeveless, she has sported dresses with long sleeves.
The dress has a belt around the midsection (where else would it be).

Decades. They are the first to carry this dress and others from the collection.
