I will be publishing a new video today on gloves. I hope you’ll find it useful. Today’s look-of-the-day is of a pinstripe wool dress that includes an inner boned corset and the Dolce & Gabbana signature touch – the exposed metal zipper. The tone of this dress exudes an element of conservatism and strictness that is quite unusual for its designers and I wanted to both playfully highlight and modify this quality; hence, the necklace. The necklace is an embodiment of aesthetic contradiction. It’s a loose choker made of plain rope, crocheted girly trim, pearl beads, and a rough safety hood locking it together in the back. The layered metal chains in the shoes and this multifaceted statement necklace moderate and funkify the look, while staying within the realm of elegant refrain.

What I’m wearing:

  • Pinstripe dress by “Dolce & Gabbana”
  • Necklace by “Ligia Dias”
  • Shoes by “L.A.M.B”
  • Plastic flower ring (I bought in Cuba for one convertible peso)
  • Coat by “twenty8twelve”
