Wearable Wednesday Dolce & Gabbana – ‘gilty’ pleasure

The reason I like D&G is they make such sensible basics that a modern woman can easily incorporate into their everyday attire. If she just happens to be a Hapsburg! ‘Altho long discredited, Mrs Anderson persisted in subtlety claiming to be the Grand duchess and wearing the Imperial families faberge designed Christmas tree skirt to parties….’‘My Mother had one of those parlors where you couldn’t sit on the furniture…after the funeral, I made a spunky frock out of her favorite chair cushion…..’“Curses! My hands are freezing and I can never find the pockets on my coat-‘‘Mona would never know why she didn’t get the job at the shelter- she knew she gave a sparking interview….’

Have you ever woken up in a cold sweat after that dream where Versailles comes alive and tries to kill you? Maybe it’s just me……  I think this is from the ceiling in Donatellas bathroom- I wonder how they got in there?

  1. Oh my, a thoroughly enjoyable romp through Versailles. I do love that curly lamb shrug/cape in the first photo. I can only imagine what a full cape would cost…;)


  2. If there was a ‘stand-up comedian’ in the online sewing world it would be you. You make me laugh every post and every comment on my blog. Having someone like you pop up in my mail/reader really makes my day! I know I’ll have a giggle and even a minor funny fisticuffs, it’s great. Thank you!! (can you tell I’ve had a really bad week at work?)
    On a lighter note… I’m in for the creamy lacy jacket & the skirt… but not together and with a slip cos I’m a modest lass. I love the second cape but fear the mutant embellished ninja sisters that appear to be part of the deal!!


  3. Versailles is quite overwhelming, but that said, I want at least one piece just for the embroidery!!!! I would wear a *sensibly cut* Versailles jacket. Wardrobe staple. Mmmhmmm!


  4. Once again. Nail on head. I love each and every piece. In fact that last dress has prompted me into a desperate search for large print chubby cherub fabric. An unsurprisingly unsuccessful search!


  5. What does it say about me that I really like all of those outfits? Loud, colorful, bold??? Either way, how fun it would be to wear any of them!

    The fabrics are beautiful – maybe just a coat/purse or vest would work for an outfit?! Although, I think I might look a little over done while walking my dog – unless it was some unique European dog that only barked in Italian 🙂


  7. I am coveting that last dress SO HARD. I would wear it everywhere — funerals, weddings, Target grand openings…

    The Versailles Vampires are rather frightening though. They look like they are bearing down on you. Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.


    • How fab is that last model? She’s like some homicidal russian doll- I love her. No one would dare to cut in line on you at the store in that frock- it means business!


  8. “Well, how would you like to have someone come along and pick something off of you?????” said the scary trees from the Wizard of Oz.

    “oh dear…I keep forgetting I’m not in Kansas.”

    LOVE your Wednesday commentary!


  9. Oh my God, brilliant! I love seeing the word parlor in print. I need to use that word more in my everyday conversations. Versailles coming alive is quite disturbing in a wax museum sort of way.


Something lovely to share?
