I spent last week staying in NYC at The Standard Hotel just below the lovely High Line and around the corner from Diane Von Furstenberg's Meatpacking District boutique and studio.  The hotel was great; and no, I didn't have sex in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows, as everyone has asked!  The High Line in the sweltering heat was a parade of locals and tourists enjoying the aerial promenade.  DVF's store looked terrific.  Filled with bold prints for fall such as red and ink hound's tooth pattern that made a particular impression on me.  I have to give von Furstenberg great credit for what she has accomplished on so many levels.  She took the idea of a knitted wrap dress introduced in 1974 and nearly 40 years later she continues to provide a myriad of women with fashionable attire at a more accessible price point than many of her colleagues.  This halter jumpsuit is made of the same familiar cotton-viscose jersey as her iconic wrap dresses and features a super cheerful tulip print.  Like one of DVF's coveted original warp dresses, this jumpsuit will never go out of style.  It's one of the things I love about American fashion from the 1970s: infinitely wearable and timeless.

Diane Von Furstenberg tulip print jumpsuit, c. 1970's.  Marked size 10, modern size 6  (The photos make the print look way more yellow than it appears in person.  It's Jarred's fault!) SOLD
