adorable shoes, beautiful girl, great legs. because the dress doesn’t fit right at the shoulders, it does not look right. i’m surprised you suspended your usually critical eye for tailoring when it came to this piece. i guess you were blinded by her lovely smile.
scott, im so glad you pointed out the fact that the picture will appear larger if you click on it, because at first it looked like she had a mustache, but then i clicked, and that lady has the most beautiful smile ever! :D it cheered me up just looking at her. and i love her dress, she looks like a lot of fun
Yes, she does have a lovely smile and face, but I have to say this style is not always pulled off…and in this is one of those instances… the dress is so unflattering. The neckline is too high, she looks like she is wearing a square tent. Thank goodness she has skinny legs and chose nice shoes becuase the rest is a bit off…including the bag, which to me looks a bit like a men’s bag.
I agree: adorable young woman and shoes; awful dress and bag. Really, this looks like something specifically designed to be ugly. Clashing colors, check; unflattering shape, check; ugly details(sleeves and collar), check. Now that will cost you $600 ;)
When you are as pretty and lively as she is, it doesn’t really matter though.
Is that a Marc Jacobs dress? If not, it reminds me of those I just saw in a department store catalog and wondered why in the world anyone in the world would not only wear THAT, let alone pay $500 for the privelege. Does that make me officially like my parents to finally admit: “Okay, I just don’t get it – I could get that at Goodwill”? Plus that’s my least favorite sleeve length.
But in the catalog the dresses were modeled stiffly and dourly. The esprit here is I think what Marc (or whoever) had in mind when they send a dress out.
wow. in love. i also like how women are finding new ways to show off their figure than just exposing the torso. look at this woman’s arms, leg, and neck. whatever is under that dress is going to be just as stunning.
tres jolie mon petite choux choux, a modern audrey hepburn in Roman Holiday, the dress is perfect, what a great print and length, and those shoes are a seamless elegant foil, but lets be honest the best part is her smile. also i must say in defense of the bag, it is simple and utilitarian, (and able to carry all of a girl’s essentials) where can i get one?
I continually love that you shoot “real” people. Real style is not perfect and the people who continually critique the pictures should not be so harsh. How about they post every outfit they wear everyday?
the negative comments on this look are really interesting. this past season (it seems like much longer) has been about the short babydoll and smock dresses. it seems to me that this young woman (and she is young, which is key) beautiful smile and legs aside, has interpreted it in a very fresh way that really works for her. don’t see a problem with the fit, the bag, or the shoes — actually, i think the shoes are great.
walking along the streets of nyc i no longer look at women in childish attire, which i am thoroughly sick to death of seeing everywhere and on everyone, but i would definitely have seen this girl and gotten a huge charge out of her.
Beautiful girl with a beautiful smile. She would look good in just about anything. I do think we are going to look back on this particular style (short ballooning dresses)and wonder what on earth we were thinking!!
Um, isn’t the wind blowing into her dress, poofing it out? Look how the fabric is straining against the buttons. That might account why it looks like a sack in this picture. The color is great on her, and she has wonderful legs and a great smile.
I saw this girl at the shows yesterday an i think what the pic doesnt capture is the way the dress moves – which to me is part of its appeal. It was (to borrow a line from Bowie) “floating in a mosta peculiar way…” I think she looks great. 100%.
how adorable. 99% of women would look awful in this dress, but she pulls it off. shoes are great, too. i have to agree with the poor choice of bag, but let’s cut her some slack, maybe she is carrying a laptop?!
love the print of the dress and the general idea although it’s a bit over-large even for the shift style. the bag doesn’t make much sense with the outfit but is probably being used for practical purposes. she looks adorable despite these few very small problems.
To her defense, I think it was a little windy and the wind made her shirt dress look so poofy. But it also is over-sized because it drapes over her shoulders, maybe it’s a vintage piece because the last button is different..
Wow! I never realised i didn’t think before I dressed this morning could look so good. If only all us mere mortals could wear what appears to be an oversized purple garbage bag and still manage to look so so SO good!
