We tried, you guys. We really tried to like this dress, but once again, the fashion world’s need to force its whimsy all over us has us a bit exhausted. Pity the poor fashion bloggers.
Isn’t a metallic jacquard enough for one dress? Did we need a creeping embroidered lady garden or crystal embellished straps to go with it? AND a huge ruffle on the skirt? Like so many of these overdesigned whimsical dresses, we can’t help thinking if you stripped away 95 of the design elements, you’d have a chic and stylish dress. This is more of a manic collection of ideas mashed together.
And the shoes don’t go. Not the style, anyway.
