In or Out: Ginnifer Goodwin in Jonathan Saunders
In fashion, as in life, it’s often best if one knows one’s limitations and strives to work within the boundaries of them. This has always been our issue with Ginnifer. Well… that, and the fact that it always takes two tries to type her name correctly. Did we ever tell you that we knew we were fashion bloggers the first time we spelled “Giambattista Valli” without looking it up and we knew we were celebrity bloggers the first we did the same thing with “Scarlett Johansson?” Just one of those little factoids we’ve learned not to blurt out at cocktail parties because everyone looks at us funny when we do.

She always wants to be Fashion-with-a-capital-F and we keep telling her, girl that’s not your style. She’s got the sweetest good-girl looks but she keeps wrapping them up in bitchy fashionista styles that don’t suit her. We feel like this is an attempt to go for something simpler; something feminine and basic that will work well with her looks. It’s almost there. We really love this dress and we like the idea of it on her because the shape and the colors work so well for her. But it’s funny; the shape changes dramatically when it’s on her – and we don’t think it has anything to do with size. She is, after all, practically model-sized herself. Those shoulders and arms are doing all kinds of weird things when the dress is on her, suddenly looking bulky in the top half. And frankly, a belt was a terrible idea here. The dress doesn’t need one and the one she’s wearing couldn’t possibly be a worse choice for it. We suspect if you remove that belt, the top half falls on her more the way it’s supposed to, instead of bunching up and giving her bodybuilder arms and shoulders.
We don’t even care about the Payless shoes. We do, however, care about the eyeshadow. Sweetie, you look like you applied it with a highlighter.
IN! Sweet, colorful, and feminine!
OUT! Hey, wasn’t that the Brady Bunch’s couch?
The PUFs tried their best to be polite about Flo Welch’s wallpaper suit, but ultimately, they couldn’t give it anything but a big ol’ OUT.
