To reinvent a LBD

Osman Yousefzada's capsule collection for Mango is already famous, everyone from celebrities, fashion editors and normal people wanting to own a LBD with a little twist.

I, for one, wanted very much to see the collection (unfortunately Romania has not yet received it), but i was out of luck in several locations abroad.

But this weekend in Portugal, there it was. The all lot of 10 dresses were lined nicely in the biggest Mango of Lisbon, waiting for me to try them on.

My initial plan was to buy one, or, hmm, maybe 2. But as trying them on, one after another, i realized i need a little adjustment in the plan, so, ya, i confess, i ended up with not 1, not 2, but 5 dresses from the collection.

The gold band dress is sensational, and the gold-collared one (evolved from Masai clothing, as the British-afghan designer confessed) has the right amount of spectacular for a night out.

The racerback tank dress, with pockets and gold details in the back will make a great office dress, easily to change in a go out dress for evening, as well as the blue waist band one.

I did not like the babydoll one, and the one with the ruffle on the waist, they are definitely not suiting well my body shape, but for the right figure they might be great as well.
