I'm not usually a fan of FLORAL PATTERNS when it comes to my wardrobe. I much prefer my flowers in the form of white tea roses in square, glass table displays. However, as life would have it, this frock stole my heart. This particular dress is from Dolce and Gabbana's 2013 Spring/Summer collection. It features a built in corset, grosgrain belt, and a black center back panel. It is fitted to promote a curvy silhouette and perfect for dinner in any Italian city making it quintessentially DOLCE. The floral print used features typical Sicilian plants often found in decorative pottery. In ancient times, women used blossoms to embellish and ornate themselves.
To complete the look, I wore my Gucci Noah HALF DORSAY NUDE PUMP and I carried my black patent YSL BELLE DU JOUR. These pictures were taken in the Meatpacking neighborhood of New York City. I like the area because there is always good food and warm sunsets.
