I am not feeling the bottom of that dress. The top of the dress is great and the color is beautiful. However the shoes is more for a casual party. It doesn't complement the dress.

I used to be a size 0, but I wouldn't have worn this, even as a teenager. The poufy rosettes are ridiculous.

The shoes are better suited to a different dress.

This dress screams 80s to me! I don't like it at all. The shoes would be alright if they didn't have that thick piece in the middle.

I went to a sale at Dillard's Clearance Center yesterday, and while I was waiting to try on jeans, I saw four (count 'em!) teenaged girls waiting in line with this exact, same dress.

I knew I wasn't the target group for that dress. Was it any better in red?

For the jeans ... Woo hoo!! Got to love those

The red appeared on the hanger to be even poufier around the bottom, by optical illusion. I suppose it works on twiggy little girls who have no hips to begin with, but I wouldn't want my teenaged daughter out in a party dress that is shorter than a cheering uniform! Maybe it is secretly a romper underneath.

I can see the appeal of the skirt detailing to a younger crowd, but it's not to my taste. I like simple, clean lines and any detailing has to be more subtle. Very nice color, though.
