We hate to be old-fashioned about fashion. What we mean by that is we hate subscribing to the old rules. You CAN wear white after Labor Day; a lady CAN wear slacks to a formal event; colors are NOT necessarily season-specific; shoes do NOT have to match the bag, etc.

And all we can think is, “That’s not really very December, is it?” The white skirt, the pumpkin-colored top, the open back – none of that really speaks to this time of year. Normally, we wouldn’t really care about that, but for whatever reasons – mostly the open back – it really jumped out at us this time, to the point where it was a little distracting.
We will say that it’s a pretty chic little dress and it suits her quite well. The shoes, bag, jewelry and hair look good, for the most part; well chosen and paired. But nothing about this look says “Broadway opening in New York in December” to us.
