I could never hope to pull that off either!
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.
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
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.
