In the spirit of Winter, and it being only six weeks until Spring (yay!), this beautiful, black velvet Dolce and Gabbana dress from their Fall/Winter Ready-to-Wear 2012 collection is simply perfect for strolling down the promenade while window shopping or on a lunch date. I love that Stefano and Domenico indulge themselves with their always unabashedly lavish runway shows and of course in their designs, especially like the gilded decorations seen here with the designers paying homage to the baroque religious traditions of Domenico’s birthplace, Sicily.
Speaking of Spring, it has been unseasonably humid here the last few days. It’s been raining all week, but I’ve got my french doors wide open on the veranda, even now after the sun has gone down. Love this weather!
Here’s to a great weekend. xx

I saw this and immediately bumped another Dolce & Gabbana frock I had chosen for today’s Frock Friday post. Her hair, her face, her expression, those eyebrows and with the lace, it’s just all very dreamy to me.
Have a lovely weekend!
I always look forward to the Dolce & Gabbana show at Milan Fashion Week. Stefano and Domenico’s overtly feminine designs float down the runway on models that are clearly happy to be wearing their clothes, and why wouldn’t they?
Layered and textured, key elements of their Fall 2012 RTW collection will trickle down the many different fashion fronts and hopefully, one way or another will end up in my wardrobe – whether it be in the form of a lace dress, embellished velvet jacket or faux fur coat. Of course, it is highly unlikely they will be labeled Dolce & Gabbana, more likely my local High street vendor, (that is unless I win the lottery), but clearly, Winter is going to be just delovely this year!

The ultimate maxi dress, yes? Definitely the prettiest of Friday’s frocks so far too.
I am super excited about this weekend because today I am driving down to the twinkly lights of Brisbane for a weekend with my gorgeous friend Amanda. I am so looking forward to the break!
Have a great weekend.
