We’re not sure if we ever mentioned this, but we once bumped into BabyCarrie at Fashion Week. Literally. She gave us the dirtiest look. But trust us when we say, dirty looks are practically required at Fashion Week and we sure hope no one judges us for occasionally sporting one when someone bumps into our tired, achey asses. We certainly don’t judge BabyCarrie. Not for that, anyway.
Her clothes, on the other hand…

It’s just really hard for us to look at a white lacey dress, at that length, with that silhouette, and not think it looks a little like a First Holy Communion dress. Especially when you put it on a baby-faced young gal. Even if we ignore our provincial assumptions and just take it on its own terms, we’re not in love. We don’t like the competing whites or the way the skirt attaches. Add those tricky sleeves and some feathers and the whole thing looks like it’s trying too hard. Mentally remove at least two elements from this dress and it instantly improves.
Can’t say we love the shoes, though.

This is actually cute – and highly appropriate for something called “Denim Days” at H&M.It feels like it needs to be youthened just a bit, though. It’s dangerously close to Blanche Devereux realness. A sassier top or pair of shoes would’ve gone a long way.
Looking at these two outfits together, it seems to us that she’s doing a lighter take on her show costuming. In other words, there’s something vaguely ’80s-esque about the looks, but they’d never pass an accuracy test for the period.
