This is NOT some sparkly, pastel-colored Honky Tonk Princess getup! For once! This has real style and sass to it! This turns heads! This is NOT generic! ATTAGIRL! You even wore kickass big-girl earrings and everything!

Now honey, we’re sorry to have to do this because we’re all about the positive reinforcement around here and we wouldn’t want to do anything to scare you away from taking these kinds of (minor, low-key) risks in the future, but we have to say it: the top part of the dress just kinda hangs there. We realize the key hole gives it some sexiness but it also prevents it from having any shape to it. Also: the shoes are just okay. But we love that pewter clutch and we’re living for all the big-and-bold gold she’s sporting. Bottom line: this isn’t perfect, but it has real personality to it. It’s not the outfit of someone who’s deathly afraid of being told she’s dressed wrong, which was the impression given by a lot of her other Country Barbie inoffensive getups. This is a step forward, girl. Good for you.
