For those of you wondering, I definitely did not shoot any of my fashion week outfits in New York. I knew the weather was going to be crazy cold, so I decided to photograph each look beforehand. I didn’t want to risk snow, nearly subzero temps, etc for outfit photos. Sorry guys! I wore this dress on the last day of fashion week, but ended up styling it a little differently (see my look here). It was just too cold and icy to wear my pumps, so I opted for my Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots instead. I also topped it with the fur jacket I wore in Wednesday’s post – I stayed pretty warm, but it would have been nice to have some earmuffs!
I scored this Dolce & Gabbana number during the after-Christmas sale at Neiman Marcus back in December! It was the only one left and just so happened to be in a size 6! Before I started losing weight these last few months, I’d been consistently wearing a size 8, so when I first saw the number 42 (Italian speak for size 6) I was a little worried, especially since Dolce & Gabbana tends to run small. At the time when I tried it on, I’ll admit it was a bit snug, but I still had a month before fashion week to lose those extra (and super stubborn) 5-10 pounds. I decided to take the plunge. When I tried it on again to shoot it before fashion week, it fit me like a glove. It was perfect! This is one of those pieces that I’ll have forever. It’s a classic silhouette with a fun print that will totally stand the test of time. Can’t wait to pull this frock back out for holiday parties next year! While this particular style is sold out, this exact key print is available in a longer dress style! A few more D & G key prints to check out include this black shift, this combo dress, this strapless cocktail number, and this long-sleeved dress. The best part? All of these are on sale. Oh, and gimme these earrings. Shop more Dolce & Gabbana key prints below!
