perfected!..the gathered high neckline just flatters the ensemble completely..except for the bag maybe that leaves room for improvement..but overall, the monochrome thing going on absolutely complements her dark skin..superb!
I don’t think the gray flatters her skin color. And here’s another bag dress. When I see these dresses I have a feeling that the women will look back in 10 years and say, “What were we thinking?” Such a beautiful young woman who could probably wear anything.
Let me preface this remark by saying that I’m not one of the commenters who leaps out to say “IT SHOULD BE TIGHTER!” every time a female appears wearing anything that isn’t spandex… I love flowy things that float away from the body. However, I’ve grown weary of sack dresses with sweater hems. I’ve been feeling it’s goofier than it is edgy lately. I love the details around the neck, the pockets, and the boots, and I could definitely do without those sleeves, but what it really comes down to is the sack-looking midsection and that hem which, combined without pants, skirt, belt, or jacket to pull the outfit together and add more structure, are unattractive features.
I have to agree that boots of ankle height can look very bad very easily. But, throwing out a guess based on what I’ve observed via Sart, I suspect the key is a very emphasized ankle taper, achieved by wearing tights, socks, or leggings (or nothing in the calf area at all) instead of, e.g., jeans, because even skinny denim has a bit of bulk. It’s not a look I’d personally aspire to so I skip the booties entirely but I think it’s adorable on others!
i love this dress, but i feel like she’s a bit too busty to be wearing it. shapeless dresses like that look better on smaller chested women in my opinion. and i think that if maybe the booties were wedges and suede, the whole outfit would look better.
Anonymous at 1:15, I had the same observation about the linebacker thing- just not a flattering cut across the shoulders; also- boots! people are out officially wearing boots in NYC today! I saw them myself- does this mean summer’s really over? Booo… Time really does go faster the older you get. Bruno’s said they’re going to stop serving iced cappucinos any day now.
I’d file this under “wrong bra kills hot dress”. When I put my finger over across the chest/underarm area and imagine it being smoother, with a bra that takes that shelf in and down a couple inches, her whole body looks much better.
But that’s if she wants to optimize the line of the dress. If she stays with this bra which keeps her so … uh – perky – there are undoubtedly plenty of men who could find it in their hearts to forgive the lapse in fashion perfection.
eh. i think i agree with whoever said it makes her look like a linebacker – i think this look would be complete with a nice thick belt to add some shape to the dress. otherwise her head looks too small for her body. i like the booties though! and she does have GREAT legs!
Hot, hot, hot! Great shot, Sart. This is a beautiful young lady who would probably look great in anything, but I’m not sure about this dress (or shirt). It looks like gift-wrapping. And I’m not sure about the little boots either. This woman has a pair of amazing legs that would look wonderful encased in some knee-high leather boots.
