Ooooh, girl. We just don’t know about this one.

And when we say “We just don’t know,” we of course mean “We have an immediate and strong reaction to this, but we’re trying to temper it by pretending we’re thinking it over.”
At first, we were all, “Girl, that is NOT your skirt.” But we think we’re wrong about that. Sure, a lemon-yellow satin pleated bubble skirt has a very limited range of people who’ll look good in it, but she’s young and tiny and cute, so there’s no reason why this couldn’t work for her under other circumstances. Circumstances like a belt, and a shove down so it’s all not riding so high on her. Also: we’re not convinced yellow is her color.
Then we were all, “Girl that is NOT your top,” but we think we’re a bit wrong about that, too. It’s just that this top is a terrible choice for the skirt and it’s a bit too tight on her. Plus that bejeweled collar looks awful with it. And then there’s the fact that every single person she encountered that night surreptitiously tried to determine if they could see her nipples.
No, we’re afraid this is an instance where, if you want to wear the skirt, you’d be better off just copying the runway style. That skirt needs specific pieces to make it work and in this case, we think we’d have advised her to pay attention to what the designer wanted.
Also, also: her hair comes to a point and that’s really distracting.
