Floribunda with D&G

Ok, wow!!! Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter's 2013 "Baroque" collection is knocking my socks off. Probably because it is clearly drawing on vintage styles and details (namely needlepoint work on handbags & clothing akin to what you see on 20s and 30s 'bohemian' items [and 50s/60s frame purses], and vibrant floral prints which seem drawn from still-lifes painted by the Masters).  Luckily, you can find similar vintage purses for much more wallet-friendly versions of these looks.  Vintage clothing with such stunning patterning might be harder to come by (though I LOVE this 30s dress) , but Anthro is carrying some items with a similar vibe, like this blouse or this dress, which I sheepishly admit, I got as an early Xmas present from my family when they had their big "black friday" sale.  Outfit pics to come!

My stars, those are some sublimely beautiful pieces. Almost nothing makes my heart beat faster on the fashion front that a gorgeous vintage (or vintage appropriate) floral, and these pieces all have it racing a mile a minute, let me tell you! *Swoon!!!*
