she looks hideous in this outfit….it’s called trying too hard. the same outfit would’ve been better on someone younger

Beautiful dress…the opaque grey tights just make the look too, and contrast really well with the skin on show at her neck. Lovely!
Love the grey tights. They perfectly accent her shoes, ensuring you don’t miss the ankle detail.

The print dress, the grey tights, the Chloe platforms, the white hand held bag…perfection! I’ve been seeing quite a lot of trapeze dresses on and off the runway. White ( for accessories) seem to ben an all year round color now. Gotta love that.

Who is the woman in the last picture you posted on style.com at alberta ferreti? I saw her all over at NYFW and have been trying to figure out who she is…

I love print dresses! Where is this one from? I also like the fact that it’s not super fitted, which is chicer.

hooray for grey tights!

I love the color combination of gray, black & white. She looks classic and gorgeous. She even proves that any woman can be sexy with right clothes at any age and any size. I love her posture. Strong and confident but not proud. Love it…Love it.

why does fashion love putting open toed shoes on skinny women wearing tights? yet we all know it’s a horrible faux pas to wear stockings with sandals. So confusing. Neat pattern on her dress though.
positively the same dame

ahh, grey tights, yes! beautiful op-art trapeze dress, perfect white handbag, so good!

I get the distinct feeling grey tights will be one of those things that’ll make us cringe in hindsight this time next year.

But since we’re adjusting our fickle fashion consciousness to adapt to them this winter, I have to say grey tights work better when worn with white, cream, beige, tan or brown platforms & especially with shoeboots.

Grey tights are so awesome.
On the subject of open-toed shoes: I’ve noticed there are lots of them in stores this fall. This FALL. How do you wear open-toed shoes properly during tight/hose season?? Is she doing the right thing with the tights/toes combo?? I’m not usually this unsure, but the whole thing presents a terrible dilemma…I have toe stress…

i wish the dress had more shape. i love it when outfits are conscience of a woman’s figure. i believe they’re more flattering.
colors are fabulously pulled together and balanced.

I just need that shoes!

i think tights with sandals look so cute! why do we care what the “right” thing to do is? when it’s well-thought out and executed, anything can work and look good. it’s about personal style, not rules from up high.

i like the grey opaque tights but i wouldn’t pair them with more grey. i think they’d work better with a strong green for instance.

I love this. You would think the grey tights would match too much but they’re just perfect. And the open toed shoe make it young & fresh.

I am glad to see that many others like opaque tights as much as I do – when I asked for them at Wolford last year the saleswoman (who I think was actually a manager from another store) was such a frosty b*tch about it! She told me they were only suitable for “Vermont, or something”!

i agree that the dress would look nice belted, though i like this way, as well. i love that white handbags are available more now. the grey tights are wonderful – i think that grey goes with everything, and such areassuring and cozy colour – but i live in a very rainy city, so perhaps i have a predilection for soft colors. the tights with sandals look works if the toe is not too open – this is perfect. as for the sandals/tights look for the winter – that’s cab-only attire.

I just wanted to add that I feel this dress is too long to be so shapeless. Trapezoidal shaped dresses work better when they’re quite short on the body.

Tights with sandals has been done for a few years now; if you live in New York, it’s the only way you can brave the ridiculous winters while looking hot. I love contrast – opaque black tights with a lighter shoe (pref. a lowerish heel).
The dress is great. The tights are great. My problem is with that Chloe(ish) shoe. Much too much; if you’re going to wear anything fairly shapeless up top, keep the shoes as dainty as possible. Please. The perfect proportion would involve a pointed-toe mary-jane in some cheeky color.

Something “fishy” about that dress!!! Or was it an optical illusion?
October 6, 2006 at 1:10 pm
those shoes are to-die-for!!

i love the overall idea of this ensamble, but i would like a punch of color (maybe her bag) and if the dress weren’t so baggy.

i feel inspired to buy gray tights.
