I have been wondering for a few days what to write about, as I’ve been a bit overwhelmed at work and feeling quite uninspired, a trend that seems to be carrying over from 2013. Probably hasn’t helped that Chicago has been mind-numbingly cold. I don’t usually mind winter too much, but it’s been a bit depressing. So basically, I haven’t felt like I’ve had anything to share.
Until today I discovered the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen.
I’m interested in fashion, but not so much that I religiously follow designers or fanatically check photos from runway shows. I mean, especially haute couture — I won’t be wearing any of it, probably ever, so sometimes it feels a little silly to look at. So I hadn’t heard of Zuhair Murad before, but when I saw photos from his F/W 2014 Haute Couture collection, I actually gasped out loud. Part of me felt like actually crying because these dresses are so completely perfect. I was so overcome that I actually just sent a Facebook message to his page to tell him all of this. I’m sure it will mean a lot to him that a random 20-something girl in Chicago is practically weeping over his dresses instead of finishing her work so she can go home on a Friday night, amirite?
Honestly, there’s nothing I can say to do Mr. Murad’s beautiful creations justice, so I’ll just leave my favorites right here.
Just mind-blowing, right? It was hard to limit myself to just these, I have about 20 more saved on my computer. These are my absolute favorites, I love them all, but the last dress is literally the single most gorgeous dress I have ever seen. I realize again that I will never even see these beautiful creations in person but these deserved to be shared. Zuhair Murad is truly an artist. I just… wow.
You can see the full collection on his website, and I really recommend you do, because all of it is absolutely stunning.
