We salute you, Miss Alexis. You too, fine folks at J.Mendel.Somehow, the both of you have combined to work some sort of alchemy or magic, because we really like this look…
… and we feel like we really shouldn’t.
Reasons why we shouldn’t:
1. It’s twee and precious to the point that we’re pretty sure it smells like a candy shop.
2. It’s Millennial Pink.
3. It’s a sheer dress over another, shorter, skin-colored dress, which is a thing that usually causes style conniptions in us.
But let’s face it: Miss Alexis has total doll-face, which means she’s got the exact right look for a pink, sparkly, sheer, twee-af gown. We have some issues with the accessorizing (earrings are wrong for the look and for her face shape; clutch is too matchy and heavy, platforms are unfortunate), but we’re forced to admit once again that sometimes the things we hate in fashion work just fine when they find the right wearer. In other words, Girl, that’s your dress.
