D & G Strapless Dress – My Favorite Dress

  • Pin it

Yesterday I found a dress I had my heart on for some time. I told you I’m a dress-girl.

This D&G Dolce and Gabbana dress featured in the fashion editorial from French Vogue (april 2008 issue) on Daria Werbowy comes from the Spring Summer rtw 2008 collection and has just about everything to please me. Floor length, ruffled, multi printed. I have a thing for gipsy looking prints.

The only thing I found wrong with this dress (if I would have found the price, then this would have been my “second only thing”) it’s the lack of straps. Normally it’s a very feminine cut, but carrying kids and strapless dresses don’t really make good friends. What are your favorite dresses?

The first dress is a clown-costume; totally unwearable. The second is pretty somehow, but begs the question: what happened after designing the top? After the hips it looks like a nevous breakdown.

Two attractive elements stitched together aren’t guaranteed to be comfortable to the eye.

Silly extragavanzas like in 1st pic I can understand and dismiss as entertaining showmanship.

I’m more concerned with the 2nd frock which almost makes it: It’s tipping toward the dismissable first, yet it has SUCH potential for a beautiful gown.

The two photos show the same dress, same nervous breakdown from hips down, as you call it, the very detail I found completely adorable. It needs a bit of free thinking and it will soon switch from unnecessary dismissable extravaganza to perfect chic.

My absolute favorite is a dress my girlfriend bought, unfortunately its completely sold out in US. Its Dolce and Gabbana, off the shoulder dress, in nude color, ruched top, grosgrain belt, exposed zipper in the back with ruffle around it. Pencil skirt. Ahhh…They had it at niemen but its gone, if anyone knows where I could get it please email me. Now, that is a gorgeous dress to me.
About the one that is posted it here, I do get ruffles and the floor lenght but I am not print person. I am sure it must look beautiful if you re tall. And yes, kids and strapless is no, no. or at least very hard to wear.

I wish I knew that myself, Maeve! Unfortunately, being a 2008 collection item, it makes things more difficult to track it and see if it’s available or for what cost.

However, you may find useful contact information on dolcegabbana dot com. Good luck!

LOL! I googled ruffled dresses and guess what? This page popped up and I never said how much I like especially the dress Daria wears and I didn’t reply back then?! OMG, I still love that dress it’s gorgeous. So what trends? This is a lasting trend and any woman who’s handy with the needle, the sewing machine can sew a dress like that. Also a little patience to get it like that is needed but its not that difficult. :)
