Graduation is one week from today and preparations are in order. Yesterday morning, we attended my sister’s commencement ceremony at Howard University and my mother’s attire took me back to the runway. Coming from much more humble beginnings, my parents don’t really believe in luxury labels, but her dress made me think about the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 RTW Collection.
The funny thing is, when I first looked at the runway coverage, I said to myself that this collection would be perfect for my mother and sister for my graduation day. The flowers, details, jeweling, and sheer material are all amazing. The collection is the perfect example of a Spring/Summer wardrobe. Since our ceremony is outdoors and all about celebration, I think the fun nature of the pieces fit perfectly. Of course, with all of the transparent garments and bra tops, some appropriate layering would be necessary and other pieces would be out of the question, but I think you get where my mind is at. Check out some shots from the collection below.
