Dolce & Gabbana Lace Bloomers

What fashion item am I most excited about this Spring season???  Dolce & Gabbana’s lace bloomers that’s what!

A little food for thought…
The bloomer was invented to allow women more mobility and freedom from the confines of the long, full skirts of the 1800’s.  The popularity of which reached it’s peak in the 1900’s when women began wearing them as undergarments.

D&G does a magnificent job of modernizing this classic piece of lingerie into something that is both feminine and fun.   Are you as excited for Spring as I am??
