Why Christian Dior Rules the Runway and My Imagination

If you've met me you know that I adore pink, flowers, and the ultra feminine apparel. You will never find me sporting the androgynous look it's simply never going to happen. I love designers such as Chanel and Versace as well, but Christian Dior captures my fascination with luring designs, candy shop colors and storybook looks.

The use of fabric, embroidery and texture makes you think that anything is possible. These are dresses that have escaped from fairy tale!! You know if the Queen in Snow White had been wearing any of these dresses she would always have been fairest in the land.
I find that these Dior designs capture my fascination for gorgeous fabrics. The drama is a simple celebration of everything that is fantastical, feminine and luxurious and I personally applaud it. I dream of the day I can own somethings as remotely beautiful as these dresses.
Is it so wrong that I want this dress more then a baby???
Coco Chanel famously accused Christian Dior in the 1950's of locking women in a prison of uncomfortable clothes after she had spent all of the 1920's trying to free them. Well madame Chanel if this prison... LOCK ME UP!!!

  1. You should just make a fashion blog. I love all the fun stuff you post. And I don't think it's weird that you'd rather have that dress than a baby — I would too!! Love you.
