Miss Blake loves herself a good poledance, because it gives her the opportunity to play dressup on a grand scale. We almost never love her choices unreservedly, but we can’t hate on a gal who lives for pretty dresses. Although sometimes her definition of “pretty dress” and ours differ wildly.

For the most part, we approve. It’s pretty in a modern way; with a tiny bit of edge to it. She’s starting to show, which means her insistence on wearing non-maternity wear isn’t always going to work for her. The waist on this thing just doesn’t quite sit the way it’s supposed to. And we’d like it better if the hem was either knee or ankle length, but we say that so much lately.
The hair and makeup are generically pretty, but the ponytail feels very stale to us. She defaults to it too much.

This, on the other hand, is just straight-up cray. Forget the combination of mesh hip, cold shoulder and turtleneck – although we don’t blame you if you find it difficult; it’s the fact that this is so woefully unphotogenic that makes it such a terrible choice. She’s a floating head, a shoulder, and one leg. It’s disconcerting, to say the least.
