014. Autumn opulence: A tribute to diffusion lines.

D&G Minidress with Scarf, $840, and Short Belted Trenchcoat, $1295

I usually think that D&G items are garish, trashy, and cheap-looking, but this outfit is spot on! I'm a huge fan of polka dots and ruffled blouses, and the dress makes the best of both styles. Plus the coat is absolutely gorgeous. Crimson satin and that little ruffle at the waist? Perfection.

However, I'm surprised (and a little disappointed) the prices are so high. I suppose the quality/type of fabric of these two garments could be the cause, but it's still disheartening to see a less pricey line go up in cost. It's already difficult enough to pay for my wardrobe; any increase is bad news for me.
