Donna Karan “Infinity Dress”

The most versatile dress of the year is Donna Karan’s “Infinity Dress” in timeless black jersey. It’s a simple little black dress you can wear 7 different ways. Tie it, twist it, lift it, whatever you can think of and like magic, it transforms into a totally different dress! Infinity Dress is $995 at Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.

I discovered Donna Karan’s magical personal touch yesterday when she tailored a dress for me without pins, needles nor scissors. I tried on a purple dress and it was a bit wide and long on the bottom. She looked around, asked for pins but no one had any. So she did what any brilliant designer would do– she bent down on one knee and knotted up the dress from the back and said “There! Now you even have an extra draping back here to enhance the backside”. In a single swift motion, she transformed the dress on me!  Who would have thought of that?!?!?  Donna then showed me how small shoulder pads instantly make me look taller and my waist smaller amongst other must know tips that I will share with you when I post our interview.   I came home in a great mood that prompted my hubby to ask, “what did you do today?”. I merely replied, “I played dress up, with Donna Karan.”

    Although this idea seems very smart, it reminds of a similar dress I had bought in the spring and came to find very annoying!(you can see it here: http://fashioninmotion.wordpress.com/2009/06/11/the-7-way-dress/ )

    Maybe I am too impatient for this kind of this kind of dress, but I think most women will take only the time to wear it one way…mine is in the back of the closet…I never wore it!

  2. I love the look of this dress. I would like to try it on. It looks totally flattering.
