StyleInspiration - ANNA DELLO RUSSO

Every inch of me is clamoring for Spring. I keep willing it to start yet it doesn't seem to working! As long as I fuel this desire into sartorial inspiration; it's all good. (I am taking these added days of cold as much needed work out time before my legs are seen in public). Back to the important stuff. I couldn't help constantly revisiting this shot of Anna dello Russo in Dolce & Gabbana during the Fall 2012 shows. It is one of my AppleTV screensaver photos! I love the color, the sweet fabric and the sexy transparency.

While Anna does a tremendous job pulling it off this simply isn't an off the runway look. Cue in this lovely crochet dress from Asos (option 1). At less than $100 dollars you too can channel look 38 of Dolce & Gabbana's Spring 2012 collection. Granted the Asos dress is not the same length, cut nor does it have the element of transparency which Dolce & Gabbana executed. But, the perfect blue shade for Spring is achieved by Asos. Also, Asos perfectly illustrates the sweet vs sexy juxtaposition by using a soft color and fabric yet making it a mini and giving it an open back.

Option 2: If you have a bit more to spend on this look then Alice & Olivia have the perfect dress for you! Their powder blue Clover eyelet backless lace dress has little details of transparency as well as an open back, ensuring you pull off a fresh spring look! Available at Neiman Marcus for $396.
