Even though there aren’t any pictures of her standing in it, we developed good feelings for this frock almost immediately. We’re suckers for color – especially when a ladystar wears it, because they’re so often waved away from color for promotional appearances (hence, all the neutral and black ensembles you tend to see).
But we’re afraid once the full picture came into view, so to speak…
… we had to revise our opinion somewhat. Yes, it’s loaded with lots of beautiful colors – all rendered in LACE.
Oh, kittens. We realize we’re lacists, but we’ve tried very hard over the years to overcome our distaste for the textile and look for examples that fill us with serene happiness. But once you start slinging multi-colored lace at us, we’re afraid we’re going to have to get off at the next stop.
It’s a pretty dress – if you blur your eyes. But that in itself kind of undermines the idea that it’s pretty, doesn’t it?
One thing we do love unreservedly here: the IDGAF hair. It’s an industry event and there’s no red carpet. Miss Lady didn’t see the point in being grandiose about it. You got a colorful frock. That’s all she’s willing to give. Respect.
