I’m glad I kept this DKNY dress – I’m pretty sure I bought it over 15 years ago. I always liked it because of the bright turquoise exposed zipper which was so unique at the time. In the last few years the exposed zipper became a trend ad nauseam and now it seems to be a common option for designers. Well, I can say that Donna Karan tried this a long time ago! With this minimalist look I did not want to wear much jewelry – only a bracelet. And my black platform sandals? They are 2011 DKNY!
