Fakin the funk

style.com

If money were no object I would own & wear every.single.piece in Diane von Furstenburg's Spring 2011 collection (and every collection before and after for THAT matter!!) So a knock off was in order.

Wore this on Monday:
Dress: Vogue 8679  Fabric: Rayon/Lycra Jersey from fabric.com
Booties: Kohl's
The only issue is the length. I hemmed it 2 inches and it's STILL hitting under the knee. I think it's the fabric. I will wash it and see if it shrinks some. I didn't "style" it, just threw on a slouchy black cardigan, it was Monday ya know.


Cardigan: JC Penney
Dress: Vogue 8679 Fabric: Polyester/Lycra blend from fabric.com
Shoes: Kohl's




This was hemmed 2 inches and it falls just above knee which is just right for me. I really wanted to style this dress but I didn't get the "ah-ha" moment with anything I tried on. So I just gave up threw on the red cardigan. I need to get some navy blue toppers in my closet!

I love both of your dresses! I almost bought that green fabric, but was worried about the shade of green (wanted it cool not warm) Anyway, I may have to make another purchase from fabric.com now... Also, love your shoes!!

Loving it. The prints are great. I almost bought this pattern for the pants but hads a similar. Now I wish I had gotten it for the dress. Very cute.
