Diane von Furstenberg: most wearable silhouette from NY Fashion Week.

This week's fall 2013 runways at Lincoln Center are full of booties and knee-high socks. There are a bevy of slits and cleavage bursting keyholes. And there is way too much black. How many larger than life gowns does a woman need?

This week's fall 2013 runways at Lincoln Center are full of booties and knee-high socks. There are  a bevy of slits and cleavage bursting keyholes. And there is way too much black. How many larger than life gowns does a woman need?

But we've got something for the every day woman.

Check out this dress by DVF. Her collection Sunday was chocked full of  sheer, floral magic. There were pantsuits and pencil skirts in  hot pink and red.

I predict it will be the most wearable silhouette for next fall as it covers the arms, flatters the waist and hides a multitude of sins around the hips. And that keyhole gives a bit of sexy cleavage - or not.  Yet this dress- especially in this lovely shade of burgandy - is airy and light and it harkens back to fashions of days gone by.

And yesterday's look is is a big part of the runrway's futuristic nod.

Don't you agree?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
