Oh, Penny. Honey, no. You’ve got to know when to step away from a garment.

It’s a shame, because that’s a pretty fucking fabulous trench.
Now, you could argue that all she needs to do is go up a size and everything would be fine, but we’re going to stick to our guns here. We just don’t think this sort of edgy look suits her all that well. We think it could work as outerwear; left open, with something brightly colored underneath, but as a dress? No. It’s just not in her wheelhouse, which generally ranges from traditionally sexy looks to traditionally rich-bitch looks.
Sweetie, pack this fabulous coat up and send it off to Gwen Stefani, who’ll know what to do with it. Also: you’re defaulting to the black platform pump a little too much. Time to move on.
