Valentino, Winter 10/11.

Oh, what I would give to wear one of these incredibly gowns. Aren't they stunning? I find that so much of the love of fashion and design lies within the dream... the dream of wearing something so beautiful. Though certainly not as incredible as these, I have a very special dress hanging in my closet—one that is simply cut, as deep as midnight, and sweeps the ground with its delicate layers. It was a gift from my Mother, from an auction we attended. I brought it home this Summer, and every once in awhile, I peek at it, dreaming of different places that I might wear it to one day. It's the sort of dress that feels like magic, the second you put it on... do you have a piece like that?

  1. Hi Sarah, these are divine for sure, the model too is just stunning. I love the one that looks like it once resembled a hoop skirt that went under dresses - crinolene? - anyway I think it's awesome. I was trying to clear out my wardrobe yesterday and I have a dress that has that shape - I always loved wearing it and haven't had the chance to for years. I think I will keep it - just in case the occasion arises! Lou x

  2. Oh these are just beautiful, I love how Mario captures collections.

    Your special dress sounds so beautiful.

  6. oh Sarah, these dresses are absolutely gorgeous! too much for a rainy day? maybe not... have a nice day! xo

  7. Valentino can do no wrong as far as I am concerned. These clothes are stunning. So beautiful.
    Every time I see or hear the word "enchanted" I thing of the movie You've Got Mail.
    Have a nice day.

  8. I am in love with the first dress... Dreeeeamy... I would love to see your dress, sweetie (if you ever feel like taking a photo or two - as we say in Russia "the country must know its heroes" :), and so does the blogging world. ;) )
    I think if I had to pick one piece, I'd go for the sandals I wore on my wedding day. They are gorgeous, with tiny enamel flowers and Swarowski crystals. My husband gave them to me as a present just a few days before our big day, so you can imagine how much I treasure them.


  9. so so glamorous... I am in LOVE!!

  10. The nude ribboned dress is perfection. I can't wait to see someone rock it on the red carpet!

  11. Little Rus -- I am a little shy, but will try :) thank you for such kind words. Also, you shoes sound beautiful!

    Lou -- you should / you never know, right?

  12. What gorgeous dresses...and those bow shoes! *dies*

  13. Oh my! Simply stunning, Sarah. Unfortunately, there is no such garment in my closet that gives me the same feeling, which simply means I must shop!

    Hope your week is off to a great start! All the very best,

    Linda, xo

  14. Oh my, that first dress is so beautiful!

    And your dress sounds just as lovely, too. I can only imagine how pretty it must be with your impeccable taste. :)

  15. Linda -- you must :)

    Amanda -- you are so sweet -- I love this dress!

  16. All of these dresses are exquisite! I adore the first one xx

  17. I totally know what you mean about a special piece that you love in your closet, waiting for a special time and place. I am going to admit that I don't just look at my pieces, I will occasionally put them on and dance around when I'm feeling stressed and it always makes me feel happy!

    Thanks for sharing these beautiful dresses. My favorite is the one that looks like the "structure" of a dress with bows! LOVELY


  18. They really are breathtakingly beautiful. The dress that I wore for my 40th makes me feel like that. Beautiful fashion memories xxx

  19. Oh I love #1 and 4 and dream of one day having that special dress in my closet too. I saw one last year but at $3000 it was just a bit too much :) Your dress sounds amazing! Something about dreaming of beautiful occasions to wear it to....I think we all do it! xoxo

  20. oh my gooooodness. stunning, stunning, stunning. that first image is breath-taking.
