Capsule Dressing- The wrap dress

DVF Wrap Dress: 

The iconic wrap dress has always been a very flattering style for any size and shape. These original Vogue patterns would be great to have in anyone's pattern stash. I enjoyed reading about Diane Von Furstenberg original pattern releases at this Pattern Vault article.

10 rules to live by from an iconic person; Diane Von Furstenberg
1. Know yourself.“The secret to feeling attractive, and to being attractive, is the confidence that comes from knowing who you are and what you believe in.”
2. Learn to love life.“The older you get, the more you should learn to love life and appreciate the beauty that comes with age.”
3. Create a visual diary.
“Carry a camera and create an inspiring visual diary of your life.”
4. Live a simplified life.
“The best way to know a [wo]man is to open her [his] luggage. If [s]he knows how to pack well, it means she [he] understands, and cherishes, how to live a simplified life.”
5. Be authentic.
“Choose fashions that make you happy. Always choose styles that also accentuate your personality. Don’t use fashion to try and project a different persona. Authenticity is key.”
6. Keep moving.
“The best regimen is to keep moving! Never stop working, travelling and seeking adventure. Drink plenty of water, limit alcohol and sugar and get to your yoga class!”
7. Be your own best friend.
“The most important relationship in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. Because no matter what happens, you will always be with yourself.”
8. Live a little.
“Sleep is easier to make up than a unique evening.”
9. Enjoy treats.
“Be proud of yourself. Try to eat well….and when you cheat, enjoy it!”
10. Discover yourself.
“That wonderful and terribly frightening journey of self-discovery. That process of growth, of being an independent person, of learning who you are and what you want from life, is the real secret of life, happiness and beauty.”
