Don’t believe the hype?

Seen adorning celebrities on the red carpet, and facehunted in Stockholm, the Serpent dress from French Connection seems like the little dress that could. I think it’s a very cute party dress and was considering it as my holiday dress, but know full well it could never be solely mine. It’s everywhere. It’s a bit of a conondrum because I rarely wear things others may own, but if I do, they’re always basics that the whole world probably has. This one though is an outfit in and of itself, and is easily identifiable by anyone who may walk past a French Connection storefront or keeps tabs on fashion news.
The question is: can a piece be original despite the masses owning it? As a general rule, I say, “Wear what you love!” but my love for something definitely dwindles a bit when the originality is not there. Will it look played in a few months’ time, I wonder? Oooh, but it is such a cute lil’ thing.
