Sometimes, I stumble upon dresses that are so unbelievably beautiful they make all other dresses look inadequate. Finding such a dress makes me wish we still lived when Mr Darcy used to ride his horse in full morning suit so that I could be whisked away in the most romantic fashion. If only we had an excuse to wear what we associate as ‘formal wear’ in daily life, but I suppose the benefit of keeping formal wear for special occasions makes dressing for these events that much more special. There is nothing more exciting than getting ready for an event which requires a long dress. The process for me is always different depending on what I am wearing, but it always starts with finding the right dress. The Daisy Darche dress is one of those exquisite silk printed pieces that makes my heart flutter. The cloud print in a gorgeously vivid gradation from red to blue makes it the most dramatic eye catcher. Once on, it’s one of those dresses that feels so incredible that I never want to take off. I know for certain having this dress would make any occasion the most romantic and noteworthy affair of all time.
