This little number here is a TVF by DVF dress and while that may sound a bit commercially it is, in fact, a brand born from one of the greatest brands in fashion -- the Diane von Furstenburg. The designer is none other than DVF's eldest granddaughter, Talita von Furstenburg, hence the TVF bit. 

While Talita insists DVF stayed out of the design process she says she used all she learned from her grandmother to bring this vision to life. 

I for one am a huge fan of the youthful, flirty and very wearable line. The collections mostly neutral palette feels like your enveloped in a big breath of Spring air (which is exactly what it's like to be around the genious that is DVF), or a holiday in the Scottish countryside. I love that the price point is lower than DVF, making me want to pick up a few pieces and almost feels like I'm getting DVF at a discount.

I've crushed on Sézane for a few years now but only until recently did I pull the trigger on this dress that was calling out to me for the last few months.  It's always a special something that calls to me whether it's clothing, shoes or accessories -- in this case it was the delicate lace neckline that had me smitten. It was the perfect mix of preppy and chic, demure yet elegant. I sized up, thinking it would have that chic French girl feel, but on second thought I'd stick to your regular size as it now feels a bit too oversized for me. The denim fabric feels heavy and appropriate for a California Winter, overall it's a nice quality dress and I'm already scouring the site for my next Sézane purchase, most likely from their Boxing day sale going on now.
