I live in a cobblestone city and have abandoned my Sigerson Morrisons in favour of flats. The cobbler was having a fun time trying to repair the heels. The outfit is inspiring. I love the lines and folds, and the hint of beige on the shoes (a bold reinterpretation of the classic Chanel shoe).
One thing has me flummoxed – all the big bags I’m seeing. How much does a woman need to carry around? Remember DV, who wanted to do away with bags altogether? She was on a pocket bender there for a while.
I actually like this. I’m really tiny with tiny shoulders and so all of the loose and flowy, “maternity wear” styles of this year just make me look like a little kid in a nightgown. I can’t wait until they are all gone and a waist is again appreciated. But there’s something about this dress that makes it super-cool, and I agree with person who said that the wild hair offers the correct counterpoint to the loose, architectural style of the clothing. Bravo! (And thank goodness she’s not wearing flip-flops.)
The shoes would be worth falling down for–they are gorgeous. But it’s just another bag dress. They seem to be the “thing” this fall in NY, and I really don’t like them swallowing up all these otherwise lovely women.
The layers of her dress remind me of a rose. I disagree about the white shirt not being “stylistically correct.” The white shirt peeking out is a fantastic juxtaposition to the black of the dress and seems to indicate that she’s not trying TOO hard. The best style is effortless.
