Diane Von Furstenberg is a favorite of mine. Her mix of classic lines with fun prints keeps me coming back to her season after season. Yes, she periodically produces some less than fresh pieces every now and then but that is not the norm; as proven this week while I was perusing Bloomingdales’ website.

After browsing through numerous delightful goodies I saw it, the newest edition to my wardrobe: the printed Stripe "Adrien" Dress. The use of neutrals is so wonderfully striking and would look fabulous on many different skin colors. And I do love how Diane is always looking out for the real ladies. This dress would flatter so many ladies with the tie in waist, short hem and bare arms. Dresses like these keep my stomach issues on the down low and create a waistline. Both major priorities of mine when I’m purchasing clothing.
