No Dolce & Gabbana….No Problem!

IMG_5414

Hello my fashion-forward lovies,

How was your July 4th weekend? I wish I could hear from everyone about where you went and what you wore. Tag me in your July 4th photos on Instagram, so I can like and leave comments. I went to a fabulous July 4th party in the Hamptons. I’ve been wanting to do a write-up about it, but all I have are iPhone pics so I’ve been hesitant.  I’m addicted to PRO photos now. They’re just so bright and puuurrrdddy!IMG_5419

So now,  let’s talk about this look!

We all know that I pride myself on being a Jamaican Belle living on the Upper East Side. However, which girl did not feel like she wanted to get in on her Hispanic heritage when she saw the Dolce  & Gabbana Spring 2015 collection?

I was obsessed with these shorts but was intimidated by the pricetag even after they went on sale from $6995 to $3260. (Click the photo below for links to the items)

Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2015

 

Since I could not join Dolce & Gabbana’s army of matadors, I decided to  try to re-create the Look for Le$$. 

My main focus was the flamenco ruffles, the embroidery and brocade.

Lucky for me, H&M has  high-waist embroidered shorts in stores right now and they are on sale for $25! They are not silk or brocade, but you cannot beat the price for the look and the quality. The fabric is 100% cotton and they are super comfortable. They even give the appearance of bloomers even though the hem is not cut as high.
If you’re still not convinced to buy them, check out  how similar they are to these Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2015 shorts. These shorts are definitely #ONTREND!

The blouse I’m wearing is old.  It’s from JCrew Collection from 2013. You can basically wear any white shirt of your choice with these shorts. Whether button-down or cropped, just pick something that you love.

 By the way, if you are wondering about me walking around in these platform sandals all day – no worries whatsoever! These Saint Laurent platforms are light and comfy. You literally feel like you are gliding through the streets on stilts with ease.

These are definitely shorts that makes your derriere be all that it can be, plus some more !

Walking around in this outfit, I felt like my name was Sheresa Bonita and I was roaming the streets of Spain and dancing in my little garden of homegrown flowers without a care in the world.
