100 Unforgettable Dresses, a book review
My morning ritual usually begins with me, hazy eyed, stepping into my closet and shifting through a ridiculous collection of dresses. No, I will not tell you how many dresses I own, merely because I did a final count recently, and it’s indeed embarrassing. During one of my routine Sunday afternoon visits to the neighborhood Barnes and Noble, I discovered this new book that struck a cord close to my heart.
The book, 100 Unforgettable Dresses, by InStyle founder and fashion director, Hal Rubenstein, is a beautifully illustrated bible of gorgeous women who wore the right dress at the right moment. Here are some samples that will make you squeak with delight!
The message of this beautiful book is that, while the dress and the girl makes a difference; it’s really the occasion, the moment captured that makes it so memorable. Every dress has a story, every dress has a personality. It delivers the message that the wearer wishes to convey. Mind you, I’m not trying to justify my massive collection of dresses, but to quote the great Diane von Furstenberg, “ Feel like a woman, wear a dress!”
