Look, sometimes, a girl’s gotta put on a Kmart dress because life throws you curveballs and you find yourself doing all sorts of things you wouldn’t necessarily volunteer to do. The best any girl can do is make the most of it, right?
AnnaSophia Robb at the The Season 2 Premiere Party for “The Carrie Diaries” at Gansevoort Hotel Rooftop in New York City in a Bongo for Kmart dress paired with a leather jacket, a Jimmy Choo clutch, and Salvatore Ferragamo pumps.
Working that hi-lo like a pro, we have to say. The real Carrie Bradshaw (and by that we mean any version of the character prior to about 2001 when she quit smoking and became insufferable) would approve.
It’s really not an awful dress, although we reserve the right to drastically change our minds on that one should we ever get an opportunity to examine it up close. But the jacket, clutch and shoes are all working overtime to bring this little frock up town. And it’s working. We’re also digging the light, but chic jewelry and the polished hair and face. Really, this is like a primer on how to dress up a potentially cheap look. Kudos to her style people.
We’re going to admit something that shocks us and may shock you: we actually don’t mind the satin bridesmaid shoe trend happening right now. When it’s done well, like here, it’s fun. We think the shelf life of this trend is going to be very short, though. At least on our end. We’ll be bitching about it right around the New Year, we’re betting.
