For people who are new to my blog, I have an ongoing series called “Another Dress I Can’t Possess.” Because I live in New York City, where I can’t walk anywhere without passing window after window, each filled with beautiful clothes I can’t afford. (I live on a writer’s budget. Unfortunately, we’re not all enjoying sales like Stephen King.) This is looking in the window of the Vera Wang store in Soho. I was actually eyeing that black gown way in the back, although the black dress on the way and to the left is lovely. I like that white one too.
I was thinking though, as I walked through the East Village and then the Lower East Side, if I ever have any money to buy clothes again, there are endless, endless small dress shops, showing the works of unknown (at least to me) up and coming designers, and I should invest some time exploring them. There’s so many of them though, I would’t know where to begin.
Also, for the record, if I ever have enough money I won’t be buying a gown. I have not had the need to wear a gown since my wedding and even though I’m divorced now, and hope to marry again sometime, I do not plan to wear a gown. I plan to wear a bathing suit or perhaps shorts and a tshirt because I hope to be someplace where I can go swimming and kayaking afterwards.
