Yesterday, I was flipping through this month's Vogue and stumbled upon a pic of this dress in bright orange.
Why do I not own this? What hurts my heart most about not being able to acquire this dress is that it is available via H&M. Alber Elbaz of Lanvin has created this dramatic confection for the illustrious yet elusive chain, and....none exist in Bryan/College Station or Houston (sniff sniff).
My first meeting with H&M occurred the summer of 2001 when I was visiting Berlin. My friend Neysa and I decided it stood for Hoch & Moeglichkeit, which would literally translate as High & Possibility, and I think that is appropriate still.
Cut to the summer of 2006, and one would find me in NYC ransacking the 5th Avenue location.
Alas, the closest H&M appears to be in Atlanta, which is entirely irrational as far as I'm concerned.
Your assignment for today, faithful readers, is to let us all know what you are excited to wear (or wish you could wear) to a holiday party.
Gute Wochenende mit viel Hoch & Moeglichkeit!
