The Woman I wanted To Be

A DVF wrap dress has been on my one-day purchase list for as long as I can remember. The dresses are simple, elegant and timeless without being frumpy. After reading Diane’s book I want one even more. I had no idea the success and struggles behind the dress, the fact Diane was at one point a Princess. Nor did I realise that Diane’s mum, Liliane Nahmias, was a holocaust survivor. In a sense Diane had the perfect fairytale princess lifestyle, yet she worked for it, her dresses are now world famous and have been for decades.

Some of the quotes below could be from a self-help book, despite Diane being a multi-millionaire, I found some of the quotes to be applicable advice to me.

“Sometimes there are doors that will open and you think it is not an important door and yet it is—so it’s very important to be curious and pay attention, because sometimes you learn and you don’t even know you’re learning.”

“Life is not always a smooth ride. Landscapes change, people come in and out, obstacles appear and disrupt the planned itinerary, but one thing you know for sure is that you will always have yourself.”

The DVF Journey of a Dress book looks stunning.
