It’s almost August (crazy, right?) which means we get to start thinking about some hot upcoming fall trends. It’s no secret that designers have begun to rethink how they work with florals. Instead of seeing florals on flowy summer dresses designers have been putting them on winter coats and dresses. And I think we all can agree that’s super creative. The one problem, however, is it’s becoming increasingly difficult to discern whether these trendy pieces are fall florals or just leftovers from the couch your great uncle Heinrich died on.
This dress by Yves Saint Laurent features a high cut neckline and puffy sleeves that will help you stay hip to the latest trends while also giving you flashbacks to the couch in your great uncle Heinrich’s living room that he died on.
It’s October and Halloween is in the air. I bet you want to slip on a little fall-friendly long sleeve floral hammer-pants number that will flatter your figure, keep you fashion-forward and remind you of how your great uncle Heinrich told you at the last family reunion that he “no longer feared the reaper” and then died on the couch in his home office.
Remember that two-toned couch your great uncle Heinrich had in his workshop where he used to tinker with World War II era two-way radios he stole? Anyway, this showstopper by 3.1 Phillip Lim screams, “Why did my mom come into the bathroom while I was showering to say, ‘great uncle Heinrich is dead,’ instead of waiting until I got out?” Fortunately, time will hopefully answer that and so will this dress, maybe? Why did he die on so many couches? This dress also comes with a scarf.
Even if you aren’t triggered by the clown-like bib thing in the front, buying this dress is a bold move considering you literally see no difference between this dress and the couch great uncle Heinrich died on. Thank heavens you didn’t inherit that couch. Family lore has it that he sewed his cat into that floral couch! Thank heavens cousin Megan inherited that one and you just got his super intense collection of World War II era propaganda. Good luck wearing this little number without constantly asking yourself “why did that man have so many couches and Nazi propaganda?”
Finally, this couch, er, floral stunner from Bed Bath and Beyond! This gorgeous curve-hugging number is a dress and not the literal couch great uncle Heinrich insisted on being buried with. And yes the stuffed bunny, I mean cool accessory (not) named for the river that took great uncle Heinrich’s bride does come with this head-turner.
Look at you go, fashionista!
