la dolce vita




Dress: Dolce & Gabbana (similar style here); Shoes: J.W. Anderson X Aldo; Sunglasses: Celine; Necklace: c/o Gorjana; Clutch: Vintage

More often than not, I tend to shy away from anything body-con (much to my boyfriend's dismay) but from time to time, I can't deny having a little va-va-voom moment, especially for a night out of dinner and drinks. I scooped up this Dolce & Gabbana number over a year ago now and am actually quite ashamed it's take me this long to share it here on the blog. I like to think of it as my nod (humble and incomparable nod, of course) to Sophia Loren.

  35. Great dress. What is it with men and form fitting clothing... I think the quote from Betsey Johnson sums it up -- "...If girls dressed for boys, they'd walk around naked at all times."
