I think I have an obsession with the name Alexander. Why, you ask? Because two of my absolute favorite designers are named like that. Of couse, we’re talking about Alexander McQueen and Alexander Wang.
Today, it’s all about Wang and his perfect creation of an LWD (=Little White Dress). He’s the best when it comes to mixing sexy with edgy chic. Wang’s color palette is mostly confined to black and white (and everything in between), but he really owns these colors, so I don’t mind.
This draped silk jersey dress from Wang’s Spring 2009 collection made me instantly swoon. Isn’t it the prettiest little thing of fabric you’ve ever seen? Me loves it.
The dress is currently up for pre-oder at Saks and I’m sure it will go like hot cakes. If you have 600 bucks to spare and there’s still room for a perfect LWD in your closet, grab your chance to infinite glee and buy it!
Alexander Wang Silk Jersey Dress
I would style it like Saks who copied the look from Wang’s runway presentation of the dress. Black chunky heels or a pair of gladiators would be a perfect fit. Finish it off with a black cropped blazer (sleeves rolled up) and you’re set.
