I was determined to celebrate my birthday in Valentino. When I fell hard for the first look in the SS12 show, I preordered it. As is often the case, what is shown on the runway is just not the same when delivered to the stores. With the day fast approaching and nothing new to wear, I reached into my closet and pulled out my recent standby and go-to dress by Sacai below. Paired with Valentino Rockstud shoes and a starched white collar, this has become my favorite, easy and pulled-together look.
What makes a Sacai dress so great and easy is that it is all one piece, yet looks like separates. The sweater is attached to the skirt, you just pull it on.
This dress has saved me a number of times these past few months. I don’t love a boatneck, so I tuck a collar, like the one below, underneath and I removed the silver cuffs.
