Miss Lady, we love your style – especially since we practically wrote an ode to it the other day – but this strikes us as too much look for even you to handle. Let’s start with the bag. Doesn’t go. At all. It’s cute, but it needs to be paired with a dress it can enhance rather than a dress it has to fight with for attention.

And holy cow, is that dress ever screaming to be looked at. Not that it’s the craziest frock we’ve ever seen, but that red panel on the bust makes absolutely no sense to us at all. It does nothing good for the rest of the design. When we mentally remove it and picture the entire thing rendered in that B&W print, it instantly goes much cuter. Maybe a little generic as party dresses go, but definitely much better than a faux life-jacket with a Charlie Brown chevron pattern rendered in lace. Who got drunk and put that one together?
