Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2011

I can’t believe that I forgot to post up Dolce & Gabbana.  This time the boys went for an almost all white collection.  It may be white (and possibly for a wedding) and it may be spring, but Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana still keep it tailored.  Paying for tribute to Sicilian trailoring (this time Sicilian white lace), they craft a beautiful glamorous collection that updates their fall collection into spring.  There is plenty of white Sicilian lace with flowery silks and light tweed.  What I love about Dolce & Gabbana is that they give me girly dressing without making it cute.  It’s sophisticated, well-tailored, feminine, romantic, and exquisitely decorated.  That bejeweled rhinestone work is astonishing.

Domenico and Stefano give me sensuality with romantic flair.  It is their trademark.  And is precisely what differentiates them from other Italian designers’ versions of sexy.  Dolce & Gabbana does not overtly drip with sex appeal like Gucci/Versace/Roberto Cavalli; nor does it wittily flirt with femininity like Prada does.  What they do do is exquisitely crafted clothes that are elegant and utterly feminine.   Their lingerie would enchant both men and women alike.  Dolce & Gabbana gives as they described last season “romance with great sex.”

Nails of the Month: Birds of Flight

I thought I’d do something summery for this nice weather we’ve been having.  And it’s the first day of university! :) Remember that gorgeous turquoise color I had posted up a while back?  I decided to paint white flying birds this time.  Cute right?  They were really hard to curve right using my right hand (I’m left-handed); I kept making the curve to fat hahaha.  If you want to try them yourself (since they’re not terribly difficult), have a steady flat surface at hand and buy a thin long brush (or pick up a bottle of nail art).
