Dolce & Gabbana – Cruise 09

December 30, 2008

The Quintessential fashion blog post

Dolce & Gabbana  Cruise 09

This may not be the first time you have seen these images, thus you may accuse me of being slow or behind the times. However I have been patiently holding back from posted such delight.  Sooner or later I would select D&G becuase it is more than necessary to include them on SS. 

Despite my patience it may be deemed unhealthy to be selecting photos of such optimistic weather since we in Seattle are being bombarded by snow and wind…okay a bit dramatic!!!  Yet the thought of a stylish sun-drenched cruise is beyond fantastic.  Enjoy!

Giorgio Armani once said that “The difference between style and fashion is quality.”  I would  assume he is referring to retail giants like H&M. 

This next selection would most likely fall under the Style category.
