Whilst in Spain, I threw on my favee Diane Von Furstenberg white silk-chiffon Camila dress which has somewhat of a bohemian mood & a 1970s-inspired shape; note the off-the-shoulder neckline, gathered waist and all over ruching. I styled my dress with black Newlook sandals,a Michael Kors bag and H&M hat but can also be teamed with a heel and boots. I love the comfort, simplicity and the confidence it gives me and most of all This Malawian can twerk in it. Today, I wanted to talk about 5 interesting facts about Diane Von Furstenberg.
