I hope it's not too 'over the top' for a mourning outfit - the little black dress with a flower twist on it.

Well...perhaps it is too arrogant to compare myself to the great Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana, but when I view this photo it remands me of the extravagance of couture-with the simplicity of southern Italian culture that designers displayed in their family campaign 'Viva la Mama', when celebrated Sicilian grandmothers.


What I'm wearing:
dress - Self Made
cardigan - TJ Maxx
sandals - Kalso Earth Shoe 
bag - Brahmin
glasses - Walmart Optical
