DIVA DISH: Hello, Herve

DIVA DISH: Hello, Herve

Who knew the BCBG on Lincoln Road in South Beach also housed a mini Herve Leger boutique?!  LOVE.

I tried on several signature bandage dresses while on a shopping spree this past weekend. The price points are so steep it’s kind of hard to breathe up in that altitude. Still, there is something unabashedly feminine and sexy about a dress that wraps you up and holds you in exactly where it counts. And that something I like.

Not to date myself, but I had my prom dress custom made by a professional in the exact likeness of a Leger that was featured in W magazine back when my idols in life were the unstoppable and unparalleled Glamazons - Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Stephanie Seymour, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Bridget Hall.

When Herve (and some of these supermodels as well) recently returned to fashion and fame, I could not have been happier or more nostalgic.

Happy in the general sense of course.  Not so happy that I’m not at the point yet where dropping a few thousand on a cocktail dress on a whim while on a long weekend escape is digestable. I was, after all, seeking warm weather not credit card debt.

I ended up getting a roseblush (the new “IT” neutral) Max Azria dress that I am madly in lust with (@ $298) and passing on all the Herve at the shop. It was painful but practical.

So – curious fashionista friends - here’s what I did NOT come home with…

The one I had to try on first.

The blinding bling.

The most magnificent of the bunch.
