Spring is setting in and with that brings the beginning of all those occasions we associate with that time of year – Communions, Confirmations, Weddings and of course, the racing season! With all of those occasions also brings the added stress of what to wear! I always think its a good idea to pick up a few dresses at the start of the season to have in the wardrobe, ready and waiting for when those days out come around.
I spotted this Dolce & Gabbana dress recently and instantly fell in love with it. Obviously I didn’t fall in love with the price tag of €1,550 but I knew that I would be able to find something similar for less if I searched. I just loved everything about it from the classy midi length to the monochrome polka dot print which is huge this season but also quite timeless, to the cold shoulder detailing. It would be perfect for a Summer wedding but also would be just as lovely worn casually with a nice wedge or flat on your holidays etc. I’m going to Spain at the end of next month and I think that I might have to sneak this dress (the non Dolce one I’m afraid) into my suitcase.
So I know it’s not identical but for less than 1/50th of the price, it’s definitely close enough! I just think it would be such a handy dress to have in your wardrobe, it would even work with a leather jacket thrown over it – there are literally endless ways of styling it. I was thinking of doing a post on more looks for those Summer occasions, would that be something you guys would be interested in?
