Fashion Friday: Wrapped in Confidence

17 May

In an interview during a product launch enhanced by flash mobs of young women chanting “Be the woman you want to be!” and dancing by the Eiffel Tower, Diane von Furstenberg said, “My mission is to empower women to feel beautiful and secure and confident. Because when you are confident you are beautiful.”

No wonder her iconic wrap dress has been embraced by women of all ages, shapes and sizes for over 40 years, including me. I’m always confident in my wrap knit dresses, on or off the bike. Mission accomplished, Diane!

Wrap Dress

P.S. Diane, sign me up to dance in your flash mob at your next launch. I’ll even fly to Paris for it.

About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.

    I hope this comment sticks. I tried a few days ago and it disappeared. Likely my fault. Anyway, kudos, kudos on the wrap dress and heels! I have a floral wrap dress that I love for my little bike commute.

      Thanks. Wrap dresses are comfy aren’t they? Oh, and your earlier comment is still here, it’s just attached to the photo of the heels, not the main post. Click on the first small image and you’ll see it.
