When I was shopping for this season’s capsule wardrobe, I happened to find this beautiful Dolce & Gabbana dress at a consignment shop, but it wasn’t my size. It was more than slightly big, yet I couldn’t leave it behind. I loved the color, the pleating at the bottom of the skirt, and the possibility of this classic dress being absolutely amazing.
I decided to have this dress cleaned at an eco dry cleaners, and tailored to fit me. It turned out so much better than I thought. This red dress has the same versatility of any little black dress, as it can be worn for many different occasions and changed with styling, yet it is much more fun because of the bold color. The fabric of this dress will allow me to wear it all year long, and I’m really looking forward to different styling options with this dress in the fall.
