Kittens, what are we all thinking about this one? Asking for real.
We think this is not working for us as well as it should. The dress has several irritating elements, like the minty color, the unnecessary corseting, and the high collar/puffy sleeve combo, all of which give it the distinct whiff of “cult.” On the other hand, she’s got the chops to make an outfit say what she wants it to say and the ability to work a fairly wide range of styles. The hair alone is reason enough to consider this look. If it works at all, we think a great deal of the credit for it lies in the styling and her own cred as a fashionista. In other words, we’re willing to be convinced on this one.
Although you’ve got your work cut out for you trying to make us love that footwear. But go ahead; give it a shot. Or tell us we’re right to be wary on this one.
