Would you wear a piece of Artwork? or a bodycon dress?

dievca would say, “no”….and then she walked into a store in the Midwest and found a fun, flattering dress that had a crazy pattern on it.  When she looked up the “brand” on the internet, she realized that the maker specialized in clothing/accessories with silk screen artwork on them.

The dress:

dievca doesn’t normally wear a bodycon dress, but the black on the sides slims the body and the Artwork on the front and back are a distraction for bumps and lumps. Something fun to wear with a tan. Unexpected and inexpensive at $62.00.

Who is Kandinsky?

Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) is a much-loved Russian painter who was exceptionally influential on the development of modern abstract art. Wassily Kandinsky also painted other styles of works earlier in his career and many of these have also retained popularity, containing their own strengths and creative flair.

What is bodycon?

The body conscious dress — or “bodycon” — takes cue from the figure-hugging, fitted Herve Leger bandage dress which, as its name implies, feels like a second skin. Made to hug every single curve, it’s designed to proudly show off your shape–but not everyone has the confidence to pull off this super tight style.

BTW, Van Gogh‘s Starry, Starry Night didn’t look half as good as the Kandinsky dress on dievca…and in the process of researching Kandinsky, dievca realized that she owns a pareo with his Farbstudie Quadrate on it….so, two pieces of Artwork clothing. So Be It!Wassily Kandinsky Color of Squares

  1. I do wear bodycon. I’d wear art, too. women really do have so many options, don’t we?

    Love Kandinsky and body con and would definitly wear this!

  3. Love the idea of wearing art. Bodycon less than, but only because it’s not very flattering on me lately. Your Herve Leger is truly fabulous though!

      Lia, this dress with the black sides is really forgiving. The dresses flew off the shelves in that small botique. I needed a small (Van Gogh in small), but they only had the Kandinsky in large – so their seamstress took it in for me and I’m glad I went for the extra effort. Worth it. I’ll break out that Herve Leger for a Gala this winter and if I do it – I’ll let people know! XO

      • Go girl! And we want photos, please. (Your reflection will do just fine). But, out of curiosity: I thought galas meant long dresses?

      • dievca says:

        I use that word as a “catchall”. My Galas are fundraisers, yearly celebrations, awards ceremonies — I can get away with wearing a number of different types of outfits, as long as they are creative and unique. I’ve put dresses away for years to pull them out, again, because I loved them so much. Can’t wear them consecutively….
