Usually when a mega-star wears a very specific item it is done – never to be reworn again, not by her or by any other stars. But, that was not the case with a very special, very stunning Gucci dress.
First, it went down the runway in February.
Then it was worn by Jennifer Lopez in March.
Then in September by Karlie Kloss on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia.
Then Drew Barrymore wore it in the Neiman Marcus Fall ad campaign.
And then most recently Aymeline Valade wore it on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain.
When I first saw the dress on La Lopez I la loved it. I loved the drama of it, the playfulness of the floral shawl, the va va voom of the color. I, of course, did not like the Gucci-ness of the price. If you, like me, are feeling la love, why not try a very clever knock off on for size.
The “save” option is from Kate Spade’s sample sale – ends on Tuesday! The Carnation Garden Scarf is full of volume with bright satin blooms and grosgrain ribbon. This is a carnation that even Charlotte York McDougal Goldenblatt couldn’t frown on.
In the “splurge” category is the plush little number from American favorite, Brooks Brothers. The Fox Collar Scarf in pink has a sweeping satin ribbon and adds a real touch of glamour.
In the “savings account” category we have the Leather Clematis Neckpiece from Natalie Brown. This “scarf” is more art installation than warm and cozy, but isn’t that what fashion aspires to be, anyway?
Would you wrap yourself up in bright blooms this season? And is it something you would be willing to splurge on?
