I’m a big fan of edgy Dutch fashion designer Ilja Visser. This dress in particular – I wish I could wear it as a dress but, you know what, I just wear it as a top and it’s so perfect and comfortable that I really do feel Ready To Fish! I love the cut and the shape of it and the fabric feels so luscious on my skin.
Besides this fashion tip about Ilja’s Ready To Fish collection, I’d like to share another one with you. When you find something you love and it fits well, just make sure you buy more than one item, maybe in different colors, or who cares, even in the same color! Because, and I’m sure you won’t have to dig deep in your fashion memory, how often has it happened that you wish you had bought two instead of one pair of your favorite jeans, or that top you’d just wish you could live in forever?
….I rest my case!
Needless to say, I applied my successful strategy to this dress and immediately bought it in both black and yellow and am very happy to discover that Ilja Visser will keep this model for next summer! Absolutely can’t wait to buy the one in Ivory with neon threading! So please prepare, my dear Frenchonistas, to see me wearing it a lot!!
Voila’! Ilja Visser, thanks for creating models that even plus size people can wear.
