{DVF & Shopbop Giveaway}

A girl never forgets her first DVF dress. I picked mine up on a trip home from college, which was just around the time DVF was really hitting its revival. I was looking for the perfect dress to wear to a baptism and reception, et voila. It’s the go-to “lady-like-but-not-a-priss” dress.

Quite a bit has changed for Ms. D since then. DVF launched everything from luggage to shoes to handbags. The famous wrap-dresses are still featured in each collection that hits stores, but aren’t as prominent. DVF has gotten a little edge. One look at my Shopbop DVF boards, and you’ll know exactly what I mean.

Far from the body hugging jersey dresses, the Davi dress is silk and more “body-skimming.” A touch on the bohemian side, the feather print dress would be perfect with bare legs or black leggings. {Jeans for you very tall girls that we’re all so jealous of.} I’ve paired it with the Alex & Ani wire bangle, 7 for All Mankind Radly Ombre Platforms, and Ciaobella’s Nikko Hobo.

Inspired by a post Roseline of {This is Glamorous} and my own personal style, I’ve paired some overtly glamorous and feminine items with a casual DVF Sweatshirt Dress. Kova & T lace stirrup leggings, Kenneth Jay Lane Feather earrings, and Alice+Olivia sequin cardi make this dressed-down dress all dressed up. Perfection for autumn.

If you’re not a dress girl, DVF has bags, too. Check these two straight from the runway. Call me crazy, but I really like the furry, multicolored stripe.

  1. I true DVF style I had to choose a print as my favorite piece. I love the Tabalah Dress. I like the abstract print, but I also love the cut that is so versatile I could wear it with tights a heels for a night out or flat cropped cowboy boots for a effortless chill kind of look.

  2. I am torn between the Davina Dress and the Lise Dress. both so pretty & classic.
    i would wear them both with a pair of black Elizabeth & James suede platform booties or some rock & republic heels in red for a pop of color. Kind of obsessed with the Tory Burch Steffi wristlet and I think it would be an unexpected twist.

  3. I hope someday to have a DVF dress **sigh** maybe winning this contest will make my dream come true!

    I love the drapey greyness of her Erosa Dress http://www.shopbop.com/erosa-dress-diane-von-furstenberg/vp/v=1/845524441870476.htm?folderID=2534374302063540&fm=browse-brand-shopbysize

    I would wear it with my grey suede heels, a small black handbag, grey nail polish, and a smile! Thanks for the chance to win!

    I am following you through Google Friend Connect.

  4. Hi!!! I love DVF! I am in love with the Bec dress:

    The rich purple color screams glamour. I would pair the dress with black suede pumps:

    I would bring a sleek black clutch and cute guy 😉

  5. I LOVE the Celia dress. I’d pair it with some sparkly earrings (like the Lee Angel Chantal Cascade earrings), the DVF Stephanie bracelet clutch in silver and the Michael Kors Naples open toe booties. Thanks for the chance to win!

  6. Wuaw, awesome giveaway!!!

    Well, hard to choose, but I love the Arita Leather dress. I’ll probably dress it up and soften it with a silk and sequin scarf and nice stockings. You know the one with the seem up the leg, to give it a vintage feel to it. Or for a more everyday look, I’ll pair it with thick stockings and some laceup plateau boots.

    Anyway, love it..

  7. Ooh, I adore the Diane von Furstenberg Davina Dress. I’d pair it with wedge booties and an oversize hobo bag. So cute for the fall season! Thanks!

  8. I love all of them, as they are always classic and truly wearable, but I have to say I am loving the Bec Dress. The color is a wonderful shift from black and the draping looks so flattering. I would pair it with the DVF Saint High Heel Sandals and honestly wouldn’t need anything more to make the outfit complete!

  9. My favorite is the Davina dress. I would wear it with my grey cordones-style Toms, a silver ring, sash it with a grey velvet ribbon around the waist, and do my hair in a braided crown.

  10. Julian Mini Wrap Dress !!!

    I would wear it with double black tights
    fuchsia booties +
    a black leather cross-body bag +
    simple gold jewelry

  11. Hi Ms. Jenn!

    This giveaway is phenominal and I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win!

    Having recently given birth to my first child, I have been STUCK in the land of stretchy pants and ill-fitting clothing for far too long! Let me tell you…I am SO READY to get myself back into some flattering clothing that fits now!

    On Shopbop.com, I spied the DVF Julian Mini Wrap Dress (which is exactly what I’d purchase if I’m the lucky winner!):


    The dress is gorgeous and not too form-fitting… It’s silk jersey fabrication would give me some extra breathing room…which is exactly what I need right now in order to feel comfortable!

    I’d pair this dress with my black Sam Edelman “Caper” flats (as much as I’d like to wear a pretty pair of heels, it’s just not in the cards for me right now!) and maybe even a black cardigan for those days when I’m feeling like I need to cover up my belly a bit!

    And, of course, no outfit would be complete without some cute jewelry…so, I’d love to pair this dress with this necklace:


    and, these bracelets:


    Thanks so much for this opportunity!! Now, I’m crossing my fingers and swollen toes!!

    Best Wishes!

  12. The Arita Leather Dress. I’d wear it with killer, either black heels or a pop of color. My hair would be pulled back into a severe pony-tail. And to show that I’m not a intimidating, feminist I would go light on the makeup, like purple eyes and light blush or golden eyes and a nude lip.

    Why you ask would I want to wear such a dress??? Simple…I don’t have a boyfriend. Granted I am only 18, but I don’t even get guys to look at me.

  13. I would wear the Jeanne wrap dress with tights, boots, and a knockout emerald-toned bib necklace.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. I love this giveaway. Seriously. I’m in DVF heaven. I am loving the Marchona Dress and I’d probably pair it with a pair of black ankle boots!

  15. I love the Manette Dress. I think it would look great in winter with gray, knit leggings (something chunky) and a cute pair of booties!


  16. My favorite is the DVF Lise Dress. I would pair it with the DVF Zia Suede Platform Sandal in Charcoal and the DVF Axelle Sequin Jacket. I love DVF! Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  17. I love the color and the fit of the Manette dress-it looks like it could work at the office or out on the town if you added some fun accessories (I’d pair it with my favorite clutch and some F* Me Heels). I like when my clothes can be multi-purpose!

  18. I really like the Bec Dress, its so classic, love the colour, and the draping makes it feel like a really timeless investment piece. I would wear it with a vintage fur wrap, bangles and kitten heels for a night out.

  19. Hi Ms. Jenn, I love Diane von Furstenberg’s Pialla Dress (Style #:DIAVF21147) and I’d wear it with a pair of heels and a big and bold gold necklace. Thanks!

  20. My favourite would have to be the Arita Dress. I would wear my hair up and some long golden earrings, a black or golden glittery clutch and black peep toe heels. Simple, but classy.

  21. love the Diane von Furstenberg Slashed Arita Dress and i would wear it with some nice black pumps..love itt..

  22. No doubt, the Laetitia dress: http://www.shopbop.com/laetitia-dress-diane-von-furstenberg/vp/v=1/845524441877757.htm?folderID=2534374302063540&fm=browse-brand-shopbysize-viewall

    First of all, love that the print is vintage from the dvf archives. second, i’m completely obsessing over hunter greens this winter.. so on par with the deep plums and vampy wine reds we are seeing. i think i’d paint my nails in chanel’s “gondola” (it totally reminds me of 90’s 90210/silk stalkings!) and rock this dress with black tights. plus, when it gets colder, it would be great with a fur vest thrown over or a great black coat — so transitional! i could even see it in summer with a gold strappy sandal! so obsessed.

    i’m following on twitter (for awhile now!), facebook, and google. also following shopbop, of course! also used your tweetmeme to RT about the giveaway :) ive already done my fair share of damage in preparation for fall, so perhaps this could offset me a bit 😉

  23. Is it too coincidental that my fave is “the Katy”? i love it… simple and has a cute sillhouette… i love the sleeves. i’d wear it with opaque tights and a pair of dark ankle boots… very cute ones.


  24. I adore the ‘Financier Sweatshirt Dress’, and would pair it with charcoal over-the-knee socks, black wedge booties, and fabulous clutch!

  25. I’m crushing on Grano Velvet Wrap Dress. When it’s DVF you have to choose a wrap dress. I’d wear it with a black turban and heels. Also I think pale blue nail polish would look great with it.

  26. I love DVF dresses too! They are so classy, yet still sexy. And I love that she does sleeves on dresses so elegantly – great for fall! I think the Davi dress is great, but I also love the Caritan http://www.shopbop.com/caritan-dress-diane-von-furstenberg/vp/v=1/845524441876746.htm?folderID=2534374302063540&fm=browse-brand-shopbysize-viewall. I’d pair it with tights and the Vince Camuto booties I just got http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3075869?origin=category&resultback=1625, and I’m loving the furry multi-color DVF bag you found…Perfect fall look!

  27. I would choose the Banker Wrap Dress. I couldn’t NOT choose a wrap from DVF and the Banker could be styled in so many different ways. First up, with my mum’s red leather belt from the 80s and vintage red and white patent leather heels and my giant red patent clutch.
