Yep, you read that correctly: Dolce & Gabbana. This dress is one of my most cherished items. A few years ago my friend Adria brought it home triumphantly from Marshall's, having bought it for only $15 bucks (so cheap, presumably because of a little snag in the shoulder). I have loved it since then and, when she moved to Scotland last year, it found it's final -and rightful, dare I say- home with me. The intense lemon yellow color makes me ridiculously happy whenever I wear it -which results in me grinning like an idiot- and it's also great for cold weather (like today) because it's a wool blend. I certainly needed the cheerful color too, as I mentioned last week I'm almost done with travel for work and the time has come to get my life back in order which means cleaning and organizing and weeding through boat-loads of old emails! Blagh!
*EDIT* a correction of sorts, Adria writes: "I am racking my brain cause I think I might have lied to you about the origins of this dress. I think, I THINK maybe it was from a Filene's that was going out of business? I vaguely remember a 90% off sticker. Something insane! A win!"
