Miss Shelley!

Girl, how you doing?


We’re still not quite sure how we’re supposed to approach her now that she’s only a semi-public figure, but if she’s on a stage in a high-fashion dress, we’ll give her a shout. Especially since we know how much she’s missed by the kittens here.

Anyway, this is a quintessential Shelley O dress in a lot of ways. It’s a simple. classic shape that allows her total range of moment, rendered boldly in high-contrast color-blocking. It’s straight down the middle of her style plate, so to speak. Classic Shelley. We could’ve published these shots five years ago. It’s just a great low-key spring/summer dress in a style she happens to be best at rocking.

We’d probably like it better if it was a maxi-skirt, but that’s our dislike of handkerchief hems speaking. Love the wedges.

A reminder to keep it cute in the comments section, please.
