I did another designer inspired outfit shoot, this time inspired by the pepper print pieces in Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The entire collection featured 50′s inspired silhouettes with bold vegetable prints inspired by outdoor markets in Italy during the Summertime. Love, love, loved this whole collection! I was especially fond of the cropped bustier top with the full skirt, when I first saw it being worn by Dree Hemingway during Coachella.
I found this dress a few years ago at a local second hand store, but tend to only wear it casually around Jazz Fest time (it being a red beans & rice Jazz Fest dress and all). This Dolce & Gabbana collection inspired me to style it differently that I have before, and dress it up a bit so hopefully I will wear it more often!
So that is how I interpreted chili peppers being worn in Italy to red beans on my dress in NOLA! Would you rock this Jazz Fest dress all year round, or strictly save it for festin??
