Living in a Bubble (Dress)

Strolling through Nordstrom today, I stumbled on a dress that, had I a little more disposable income or a little less self control, I would have snapped up and taken home in less than 10 seconds.  It's called the bubble dress.  It's perfect.  It's playful.  And it's Oscar de la Renta.  (It's also $4,390.)

The fabric, craftsmanship and quality of this dress are better than anything else I own (and I own some damn fine things).  I've long had a love affair with Oscar ... in a longing, dreamy, aspirational way ... so a little blue gem like this makes me crazy.  Something about his lines, his colors, and his unparalleled ability to make a woman look inescapably feminine and flawlessly couture with a simple swash of well-made silk is magnificent.

Sigh.  A girl can dream.

I love your confidence in my abilities. But with what time would I be taking up yet another hobby? ;)
