Diane von Furstenberg Kivel Dress

I have a new favorite Diane von Furstenberg dress, the Kivel Sweater Dress. I bought my first Kivel dress, in "Floral Medley" at the DvF sample sale in NYC. It's a nice weight for a transitional season sweater dress, in a 80% cotton 20% silk blend. I reach for it on the days where I just can't even wrap dresses seem like too much work.

I recently purchased from eBay the Kivel Dress in Tiger Eye Red. I had my eye on the Teal Tiger Eye Kivel that Sarah Jessica Parker wore. However, I was waiting for it to go on sale, and it never dropped in price low enough to snage it. The Tiger Eye Red Kivel has, in the words of my friend, a "Dragon Lady Chinese New Year" feel. I'm loving it! The fabric is a bit more cozy feeling than the Floral Medley, though it's also marked as "80% Cotton 20% Silk"

For sizing, the Floral Medley is in M and a bit loose on me, and the Tiger Eye is a bit snug on me. I'm hoping the Tiger Eye stretches a little. Right now the Tiger Eye definetly NOT work appropriate like the looser Floral Medley.

Two thumbs up, and I'm happy Kivel is back for the 2013 season. I'm eyeing the short sleeved Kivel version in a bold pattern. 


  1. I love to wear sweater in winter. I love sweater dresses. Lovely post and reference to purchase the sweater dress. Your blog inspired me, Lovely post and thank you.

  2. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Cancer,Hiv_ Aids,Herpes,Copd,Diabetes,Hepatitis,I read about him online how he cure Tasha and Tara so i contacted him on even talked on whatsapps +2348149277967 believe me it was easy i drank his herbal medicine for two weeks and i was cured just like that isn't Dr Itua a wonder man?
