This dress is everything. Wanna know why? 'Cos it throws me back to Julia Roberts' cracking appearance in Pretty Woman every time. Ya know that scene, where she's at the races looking like a total knockout and then gets creeped on by Richard Gere's smarmy work associate? Yeh, that one. She's even got those white gloves on and that straw hat and basically looks fucking lovely. That dress represents the beginning of Vivienne's transformation from mouthy corner-working woman to the classy and elegant lady she was always supposed to be.
Now of course this dress is a cheap Zara knockoff and not NEARLY as class-aaay, but the print is just so nostalgic for me, and I love the pretty strap detailing on the back. With white accessories, it's a perfect summer dress, wedding guest outfit and holiday wardrobe addition. Only prob is, no bra can be worn due to the back and so my total boy boobs look MINISCULE. But hey ho, we can't all have Julia Roberts' rack now, can we?
