yearning Tweet when I ran across the gown... I want so badly to have somewhere, anywhere to wear this dress.
I'm having a serious Confessions of a Shopaholic moment. I want to be the girl in the orange floral Giambattista Valli gown. I'll wear it to so many places. People will refer to me as the girl in the floral Giambattista Valli dress. Life will be perfect.
Ok, back to reality. I'm a Silicon Valley workaholic. Aside from the occasional California-casual cocktail fundraiser or dinner out, I don't go many places where jeans are out of place. I have zero need for a $7,735.00 floor-length gown. For a brief moment, I considered it for my niece's upcoming Lake Tahoe Ritz-Carlton slope-side wedding... but, let's be real, silk chiffon and snow don't mix. Argh.
Lovelies, I leave it up to you. This delicious dress is insanely splurge-worthy. It's gorgeous, timeless, and truly perfect for a more formal winter wedding or society event. Someone has to get this and tell me how amazing it looks in person.
