We’d like to point out that we hated this dress last night and here we are, late in the day on our busiest day of the year, softening up a little bit. We are NOT cranky, tired bitches! We’re softies!

See, on TV, most of what you saw of this dress was from the waist up. Well, that bodice and those sleeves are awfully wrinkly. Given that it’s all sheer, it tends to make her look all wrinkly and we can’t imagine that was the effect she was going for. Plus, we really don’t like the neckline at all. In fact, the whole front of the bodice feels like it’s being pulled down.
This is all kind of a shame because the bottom half of the dress is stunning. If the top wasn’t so wrinkly and sloppy-looking (and had a different neckline), we’d love this. As it is, we only half-love it; the bottom half.
