You may have already seen posts about this if you’re a faithful Coutorture reader. But if not, here’s the skinny. On Tuesday night this week, a few lucky NYC fashion bloggers were treated (by a combined Coutorture and Diane von Furstenberg effort) to a chic and super-glam photoshoot at the DvF store in the Meatpacking District.
Not only did we get to pick out whatever DvF spring clothes we wanted to wear (and, oh, was that a torturously difficult decision), but then we were put through professional hair and makeup and shot by professional photographers (grazie mille, Franco Lacosta). The very helpful DvF sales ladies (thanks, Val) professed that they were having the most fun with it, but I have to beg to differ, because I can’t imagine anyone having more fun than the bloggers.
While I started out the evening in the deliciously comfortable teal Milano sandals (on sale for $196 at Shopbop in teal, lavender, and black)…
the brilliant Coutorture and DvF ladies helping us all out had the clever thought to bring out all the DvF footwear goodies that were there for the drooling over.
By the way, those adorable green and red Brussels flats in the front there with the classic DvF knotwork details on the toes? Snap ‘em up for cheap ($158) right now on sale at Joseph, which I talked about yesterday.I’m sure you can tell by the giant grin on my face, but there’s nothing like putting on gorgeous clothes and gorgeous shoes and gorgeous jewelry, too (fyi, that gold chain? $7,600!), and it was fantastic.
There’s more coverage up at Coutorture, including a page for each of the bloggers who were there, all of whom were great and were lots of fun to play dress up with. There are a couple shots of me with one of the Daily Obsession team in another DvF dress I loved and a pair of the Per Se pumps, which are on sale for $176 at Nordstrom (also note my dear companion’s Louboutins, which she brought to the shoot with her).
There are shots of each of the lovely ladies (or the models they chose to style): Shopalicious, See Pretty Things, Clothes-Pin, and plenty more, along with quotes from some of us lucky bloggers. So check it out. And a gigantic thanks to the Coutorture team and the DvF team respectively and collectively for putting this whole thing together and making us feel so welcome and happily pampered.
