Thrift Inspiration, Dolce & Gabbana style

Hi everyone!! Its a lovely sunny afternoon and I have been suitably inspired to do a post (at long last!) based on what is inspiring me for this coming summer season.

Dolce & Gabbana are chanelling picturesque Italian summertimes from the 1950s and on seeing their latest ad campaign, the gorgeous eggplant dress made me pull out my original 50s dress that my mum wore back in the day and which I still proudly wear.


It hasn't got a veggie print but the cut and style is virtually the same as the D&G one, I just had to show you all. It goes without saying I will be wearing this a lot this spring and summer!

I would say the 50s is definitely one of my favourite fashion eras, the bold prints, fitted styling and Italian inspired pieces really make this a chic and fabulous choice for the coming season:

What season or decade is inspiring you for this coming summer?

Yummy dress, darling Sharon! :)

That's a lovely dress and it's very D&G. I do like the fifties look - quite fun but feminine too.

You're back! You've been away too long! It's a lovely dress! To be honest, I have no idea what the trends for the summer are but I always go for florals or a naval theme!

I've missed you - but it's worth the wait to see your mother's dress from the 50's. It. Is. Gorgeous!

Lovely dress.

I'm massively 70s right now. I flirted with posh vintage (ie pre-1960) but I have to admit, I'm a disco girl and if you cut me I bleed glitter. Flares and chiffon all the way!

I'm a total 50s girl too and I've been looking longingly at that very ad campaign... Amongst others. It all seems to be about the 50s and 60s this season. I adore that dress, can't wait to see you in it. X

Gorgeous dress! Fab for the summer and a glass of pimms!xx

That dress is so very much like the one on the lovely campaign, isn't it? You always look so elegant and willowy when you wear it.
I never change my style, I'm all about the 1970s as always. x

Hello dear friend. This dress reminds me of one my mother used to have and which I eventually transformed for my own when I was still 18 or so. The fabric was divine, large floral prints in purple and green against a stark white background. You don't find such beautiful fabric anymore.... I had really enjoyed sewing it....ah, those were the days!

Fabulous find, love the dress! I'd like to have the 40's + 70's influences this Summer.
Have a great weekend!

Oh lucky you - it's gorgeous and very very D&G x

What a beautiful dress - hope you'll show us how you're wearing it, Sharon. I fear fashionwise I'm married to the 90s. xo

Beautiful dress! I'm loving the 50s too this summer. The 50s-style Prada collection was my absolute fave!

What a beautiful dress. I love the fifties and the amazing thing is these styles just keep coming back again and again.

Budget Chic said...

Hey diva, great dress! I love the floral print on this, reminds me of vintage 50's print!

Love this dress!

Hi everyone-your comments mean so much, thanks a lot to you all xxx

The findings that can be found at your own home are the best.

OMG I adore the dress -- so Mad Men!! Do you have that show in England, by the way? I'm absolutely obsessed with it, and all things Mid Century. Mainly the furniture but the clothes too. Something about early '60s style that's fascinating to me.
