I don't wear the black-and-white look very often but love this D&G outfit and was inspired to give it a go. Being from a European fashion shoot it's a springtime outfit, and I do think of the black-and-white look as being a very spring-y colour choice. Now I've got it on though I'm very pleased with how this ensemble looks. I also thrilled at how this skirt, first posted here, is shaping up in my wardrobe. (And no, it's not actually made from a lace tablecloth, but certainly inspired by them...!) When I made it I thought it would be too summery to wear outside of the summer months, but am feeling very comfortable in it today with socks and boots. It's actually a tad warm for boots but I'm going on to a fashion parade tonight and the nights now are cool enough that my toes cry out for sock coverage... so a little overheating during the day is necessary here.
Speaking of fashion parades, I'm pretty excited about going tonight. There will be some very swish-o labels on parade, so I'll be doing lots of mental note-taking. A sample of the labels promised are Isabel Marant, Alexander McQueen, Maison Martin Margiela, Comme des Garcons and Junya Watanabe. Yes, (air fist punch) Perth is finally getting some of the avant garde designs in stores! Of course we love our boring basics, like Country Road etc but we love us some international wow-stuff too...
