What happens when one woman (me) wears the world’s most versatile dress (a classic Diane von Furstenberg wrap) every day for thirty days? Well, there’s really only one way to find out.

Day ten - the DVF on wheels

I took the DVF where no DVF had ever gone before:



I thought this outing was really going to push the limits of the dress's appropriateness, but then I realized that adults who visit a roller rink every week are probably fairly forgiving when it comes to others' fashion choices. And I was right! In fact, the regulars were extra helpful towards my wobbly self (I think they might have thought I was someone's visiting Amish cousin) and were gracious when I nearly caused a six-person pile up. It was all so civilized! Like the DVF itself.



Not only did I get to go roller skating - I found all the men who wink at me on match.com! They spend their time at Skateland in Bradford, MA. Here are some of them, skating in a line:

  3. Love your blog - I hope you keep up the writing once your experiment is done. Best line ever: "Not only did I get to go roller skating - I found all the men who wink at me on match.com! They spend their time at Skateland in Bradford, MA." I can't stop crying/laughing!

    ps I think I need one of these dresses too . . .

  4. I saw the article about you in the Globe and had to check out the blog. Love it! Favorite so far is the margarita/nacho glob night.
    How psyched were you that DVF read it?
    I've got my credit card out and ready to buy one for my 45th birthday tomorrow.
