inspiration: dolce & gabbana spring 2012



My magpie tendencies have inevitably drawn me to these garments from Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2012 collection. Could they be trying to bring back the bedazzler? If so, they’re definitely going the right way about it. I haven’t done a decent DIY in ages (the glitter shoe craze just floated past me), but I am seriously tempted to give this a go. Check list: a shirt/dress/skirt (lace optional), lots of baubles, and a hell of a lot of patience! Although for those lacking patience, like myself, it might be wise to start with something simple like a bejewelled collar.

    The details on this are actually amazing. You should definitely do a DIY on this! I definitely wouldn't have the patience but I hope you do, haha!

    @whitney: I'm going to hunt down supplies this weekend! Completing a dress would be crazy time consuming – and how are you meant to sit down in it? All those pokey bits! haha

    if i owned this dress i would NEVER take it off. my sparkle-obsessed 7 year old self would reemerge & not allow my hands to stray to the zipper. it would be my forever-uniform. so good.

    Oh those pieces are gorgeous! I doesn't even look a tiny bit overdone… I am very interested to see your DIY collar!! I myself would'nt, and couldn't, do a shirt/dress/skirt at all. But a collar, such a fun idea!

    I definitely want to be a walking disco ball. However, I think I'd settle for just a bejewelled collar too xx
