We really like this look, but your assignment is to guess the one thing we hate.

Charlotte Olympia Dolly Island Platform Pump
It’s somewhere between “updated 1940s” and “sexy secretary.” It just feels grownup and pretty in a not-too-attention-seeking kind of way. Love the color, the shape, and the print. Could’ve done without the gold platforms on those shoes, because it’s a bit distracting. If you mentally edit them out, it looks much better. But that’s not where the hate comes in; it’s that clutch. It really doesn’t seem to go with the outfit at all. Kind of an ugly color and a bit too large for the look. With the secretarial vibe she’s got going on, it almost looks like she’s toting a file folder around.
Oh, wait. There’s one more thing we hate: the makeup. She is much, much prettier than these pictures would have you believe. Her eyes look consumptive, her skin too pale, and that lip color doesn’t go with the outfit at all.
Basically, it’s a good look with some minor detailing issues. We really do love that dress, though.
