What I love about this shot is how 1950s it looks. The hair is healthy, shiny and full and makes this woman look 10 years younger. The sunglasses are retro…and the outfit is straight out of the 1950s…easy to sew too. It would be so comfortable in the hot hot weather we’re having in the U.S. Finally, that bag? Perfect size for a knitting WIP!
This was such a fun collection by Dolce and Gabbana! I like how she complemented the 50s silhouette with 50s Sykes hair, matching red lippie and cateye sunglasses, then dressed it right down with those simple flat sandals…not the usual choice of footwear worn with Birkins.
Ahhhh….Dolce & Gabbana perfection!!! Such a happy print and she looks great in it!! Her hair, sunglasses, bag, but especially how she wore it with flat sandals as opposed to a heel, makes this a quintessential summer outfit!!! So feminine!! Truly a “HOT PEPPER”!!! LOL!!!
I love chillies. This lady has made me love them even more. Beautiful….Just waiting for Cary Grant to turn up, she’s got that Sophia Luaren / Cary grant movie look going on. Well to me she has anyway :)
This woman looks so gorgeous, like an old hollywood star. Unfortunately, I won’t be wearing midi skirts this summer, because I live in Berlin, where people stopyou on the street and tell you, ”Nice outfit, but you shouldn’t be wearing something more ghetto?” Unbelievable.
What a hot tamale! (pun totally intended) But seriously, I love the subtle 50s glam attitude this photo exudes but she still has her personality & a touch of sex appeal infused in her outfit! Perfection!
Palpable. The heat, the sun, the fabric, her youth. Looking at this photograph makes me physically understand I am no longer a young woman. I will never wear a dress like that again. But she is so adorable, it’s a pleasure to look at. There is an entire story in it.
Absolutely stunning… and then you get to those shoes – dear goddd – anything but those old-lady sandals!!! They might be some hip designer, but they look like crap. So many alternatives that aren’t high heels… sad… and otherwise she seems to know what she’s doing… maybe she needs an intervention – a SHOE intervention.
for my husband and I this is clear of nonsense….money can’t buy style….yet very nice Dolce skirt and hair but come on! the top is not her size and the sandals seem used and old…she is far from having allure. sorry
She is quite sure of herself!
This is the kind of outfit that only a woman who was quite confident would wear out on the streets.
Even though I am not a big fan of the whole showing off part of your stomach thing, I do like the skirt and the bold prints.
The thing that I really like though is her hair, it looks so healthy and shiny and the way she is wearing it to the side, that color. loveeeeeeeee it.
I do like the pattern and the style of this dress!
And now for something completely different: I don’t know how you travel from Firenze to Milano, but I think by train, because it’s only 2 hours away. I would highly recommend Italo; I’ve been living in Italy for 5 months now, and have travelled with both Italo and the Freccia. I can tell Italo has way better service, wifi is easier to use, prices are lower, and the train is more comfortable!
Such a fantasy when you are able to see real life princesses who are blessed with both beauty and the means to accouter themselves in complete designer finery with apparently little care in the world for cost.
She looks really cool and pretty – fashionable without being a victim, despite the obvious Dolce ensemble – but I think the Birkin spoils this look. I would have liked to have seen a wicker basket. But she looks gorgeous, bag or no bag!
