Donna Karan Dead Ringer

Tomorrow will mark 14 post-op days, and this evening I am feeling a wee bit "tender" in the abdominal and pelvic area.  Clearly, I'm not ready to run any marathons.  So, this Super Bowl Sunday, I am relaxing, surfing the internet, pinning images on Pinterest and catching up on Facebook.  I'm also researching Vogue and McCall's patterns as JoAnn Fabrics is having a sale on both next weekend.

I've created an online account on McCall's website so I could utilize its Wish List feature, and one pattern I've often added and deleted from this list is Vogue 1361.

V1361, Misses' Dress

I've seen this pattern many times since it's release to Vogue in Autumn 2013.  The design itself was first introduce during Donna Karan's Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection.

I absolutely love asymmetrical designs, and this one is no exception.  I'm not really sure why I've dragged my feet on purchasing the pattern, but I think I may add it to the collection next week.  Even though I've seen the design as part of the original RTW collection, I had the feeling I've seen the dress elsewhere...and then it occurred to me where.

This is a promotional picture for "The Good Wife".  I'm not sure which season it was intended to promote, but it pictures lead actress Julianna Margulies wearing the same Donna Karan design.  I love the look, and this would not be the first time a design worn by Alicia Florrick has caught my eye.

Yeah...I think I'll be getting this one next week.

Be blessed!



  1. I love this design and I love Alicia's clothes as well. I very often run a commentary on the fashion on The Good Wife while I watch it with my husband ,much to his bemusement.

    1. LOL...I love Alicia's and Diane's wardrobe! Thanks for the comment, Diana, and taking time to read post. I truly appreciate both!

  2. That's a great dress, especially in that color.
