and i was like...what the f**k is Delpozo?
so aight - we got to the venue of said award giving and i had some time so i flipped the macbook open and went right to style.com and bam....Delpozo. i started flipping through the show and my eyes were getting bigger and bigger....how is it even possible that a designer this awesome exists and i don't know it?! Jao was looking at me like....why are you looking at those insane dresses? please stop torturing me that you're going to show up to some event dressed like a fashion unicorn.... but boo, please. you have a lifetime of fashion-unicorn-wife-on-your-arm at parties so just don't even worry about it. so anyways, Delpozo. a Spanish designer from Madrid. not really "new" to the scene, but definitely the first time it's been on my radar/twitter/instagram feed in any kind of volume. i want more, i want more. he makes the CRAZIEST dresses...weird shapes, princess volume, beautiful colors, eye-catching patterns and embellishment...excuse me while i die and go to heaven here.....
Delpozo was on sale on Moda Operandi and yes, it's a bit pricey but all i could think of was...ooo wouldn't this be a fun rehearsal dinner dress for the wedding? i could wear this one for the reception! and then i finally turned to jao and asked "for official government functions that we have to dress up, is it inappropriate to wear non-american designers? i mean....because this designer is Spanish. Is that an issue...or....?"
he just smiled and shook his head while i continued to look at fashion unicorn status dresses...but no seriously. wouldn't it look so AMAZING at like an international diplomatic black tie gala and we walk in and everyone is in boring outfits and i'm in a Delpozo? it's what my dreams are made of!
