This is the kind of dress that causes one to irrationally think “Stop! Stop! You’re ruining it!” as one takes it all in.
And when we say “one,” we mean ourselves, of course. Just one more thing we have in common with Queen Elizabeth.

It’s just TOO MUCH DRESS. And it looks so heavy. You could remove half the design elements (and half the fabric) and have a decent dress. The shoes are such a headscratcher of a choice too. We really didn’t need one more visual element to pull our eyes in another direction. This was a time for neutral shoes. Actually, scratch that. This was the time for a different dress entirely.
