Location LOCATION: Milan

Dolce & Gabbana Tapestry Skirt and Jacket / Dolce & Gabbana Sicily Bag / Charlotte Olympia Heels

Even though the scenery in Milano was beautiful I couldn’t help but feel more moved by the people I met during my time there. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I would beĀ  immersed amongst little red blossoms dressed in a three piece by none other than the Italian powerhouse Dolce & Gabbana. Dolce & Gabbana heard we were coming to town for MFW and kindly offered to dress me for their SS 12/13 show.

What I chose was this interesting floral tapestry two piece with a matching bag to boot. I know already that it’s something you either love or hate, but to be honest I’m so obsessed with vintage doilies that I couldn’t have been happier to be dressed like one for a day, especially seeing as they used real doilies as detailing along the collar and pockets! If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll remember I actually made doily peter pan collar tops for my store so it was the perfect fit. We took these photos before the D&G show which was absolutely manic outside. It seemed all of Milan had arrived to see the show and what followed was nothing short of amazing.

Show photos coming tomorrow once I fly back to London and re-pack for Paree!
