The Grad Dress


 This picture, of Vogue Nippon Editor, Anna Dello Russo, has been my desktop wallpaper since the day it was posted on The Sartorialist! Anna Dello Russo is one of my style icons. I love how she incorporates drama into her everyday outfits. I loved the odd voluminous silhouette & the interesting almost laser-ink-jet-like print of Anna's Dolce and Gabanna dress (pictured above). This was my major source of inspiration while I was online shopping for the perfect dress.









I ended up ordering a dress from Neiman Marcus. The dress is a Notte by Marchesa creation. I absolutely adore it. It is such a delicate dress. I love the diluted water colour flower print on the draped organza farbric and the underlay of lace peaking out at the top and bottom on the dress. My favourite part about the dress is the huge statement bow made out of this really cool mesh material. There was so much going on with the dress, I decided to wear simple black pump and a clutch, both from Zara.
