i miss the feeling that this wonderful girl just happens to be there and you just happen to have your camera with you. that it’s a lucky fashionable moment. the same girl with different outfits in the same post is so staged. it’s so try-hard and takes away the genuine feeling of “she is fab. without trying.”.
I rather like the fact that you’ve captured the same woman wearing the same dress two different ways. The number of times I’ve worn a dress exactly the same way because it’s working, it not to be counted.
Love the different views on who wears the dress better. I think neither is better, they are just different uses for different people. I love how skins and animal print are used this season in garments that are not over-bearingly sexy. It’s refreshing!
The top picture is so ironic, here is a woman with a bohemian-esque dress and sandals, looking all carefree and innocent until Bam- look at the back ground, she’s getting into these ridiculously large, gas guzzling, posserish vehicles with ‘blacked out’ windows and smiling like she’s just sitting on the beach. Your outfit doesn’t work with the vehicle! though it is a nice dress (not usually a fan of that print)…
P.S… Gingercat, how do you know this was staged? It very well may not have been. If someone as observant and prolific as Scott is out and about all the time in fashion epi-centers, chances are he’s going to spot the same garment at least once. In-fact, why are there not more examples? ;)
Both pictures are amazing! It took me a while to realize they’re the same person (they are, right?). That dress is to die for; and normally, I don’t like platforms, but those shoes are stunning. Thanks for the inspiration!
I have been looking at these pictures all day long! I cant stop thinking about wearing a midi long dress anywhere and everywhere!! And this one seems just perfect with the whole snake print and all its possibilities of styling! I am just in love!!
I’m with the others who say this dress looks best beltless. The belt seems to break up the vertical pattern on the dress, and is not flattering…but unbelted?Breathless with those lovely wedges. Wonderful!
I love the second look. I also feel as though it’s two different dresses, and if I’m wrong, then mor power to the versatility of the dress. However, the first one looks like the version they’re selling in stores and the second one resembles the actual dress that walked the runway.
This post is a good example of why a woman look more appealing when she’s wearing shoes with elevated heels than she does wearing flats. Evidently, most of the people preferred the second look. I did, too.
I love the first photo, just ’cause that’s how I’d wear it…but the second photo is really pretty too, esp. those wedges, but I could never walk on cobblestone in shoes that high…and I’ve tried, I used to live in Milan.
I hate the dress with the belt and flats but with the wedges it becomes fabulous. When you have a dress at that length you need high heels to balance the frumpiness of the length!
There’s no silhouette cooler to me than the one a long silk shirtdress can create. The obvious choice of shoe is a chunky sandal to give the delicateness of the dress a clunky characteristic. I love how ‘neutral’ the backgrounds of both shots are!
