Caution: Trends May Attack

Now, don't nay-say me here people. Yes, this dress ($108, hazel, 2nd flr) might be cute if I styled it with some great stockings and chunky ankle-strap heels. But this shot is from a dressing room, with dressing room lighting, and thus well illustrates why we should tiptoe round lace come fall. If it's not Prada-like quality, you run the risk of it looking very cheap. Or looking too lingerie. So, come fall, go gently while waking the lace lover dwelling deep inside your trend-abiding self. And don't let her bite you in the ass.

I would wear this dress: in dark bars and restaurants; at home for an intimate dinner with my man; um, that's all I got. Anyone?

Actually, I don't think it's bad. With tights it could be very nice.

fashion herald said...

yes, I think so too! hmm, maybe not the best example, should have gone to Conway instead.

I would buy this, then accessorize

I think you're absolutely right-with stockings and heels it would really work-I'm loving the comeback of lace too!!

Great look with thights!

Maybe it's because it is 100 degrees in the shade here, but I love that dress and would wear it with gladiator sandals. Everyone commence making fun of me!

fashion herald said...

no way, lipstick, I think you are in the majority! i obviously chose too cute of a lace dress!

(I usually read this blog in the middle of the night when I can't sleep. A cat attacked my arm yesterday at work but the Vicodin didn't work....)

This dress looks like something Ashlee Simpson would wear if invited to perform for the soldiers in Iraq. I would pair it with jeans and chunky heels, if forced to wear it!

Some hot accessories and it will look much better

such good advise that most people will ignore.

Love it, I think you could possibly get away with wearing it usually if you wore some leggings and maybe a few accessories. But for a quiet dinner it looks wonderful :)

I think wit leggings is good too! & yes, shoes will solve everyting! Go for chunky heels! :D

fashion herald said...

hmm, consensus seems to be the dress can be saved. maria, sounds like you've got to go stronger than vidodin next time you encounter a bad kittie. I'm sorry! although the Ashlee simpson comment is dead on. and thanks, imelda, i think we all can envision how bad cheap lace can look.

Sister Wolf said...

I think it's adorable. I'd probably wear it with biker boots and ruin the look completely.

enc said...

With opaque tights? That's the only problem, that it's a bit leg-showy. Otherwise, you look great!

Okay MIss Fashion... your fans demand an answer: is it you? Did we add it to the walk-in?
