Let’s flip the script on our usual “We liked this until we got to the shoes.”
Because we hated this until we got to the shoes.
They’re a really fab pair of shoes and we love the idea of pairing them with a short shift or day dress. But this does not appear to be the right dress for them. First, the shoes are so heavy and dark that you really needed to pair them with something a bit less springtime than this. In fact, a darker, possibly heavier dress and a pair of tights are what these shoes really need.
In addition, the buckles running down the front are heavy and overdone as a design element. They appear to be weighing the dress down and pulling it slightly out of shape – and it didn’t have such a great shape to begin with. Rare is the day when a ladystar picks a bad dress and great shoes, but Miss Brie managed it, bless her.
