This isn’t over.
It looked great in person. Well, let me say it looked good to me when I looked in the mirror. These days I’ve decided that’s all I really care about. I mean I am my toughest critic, so If I’m happy with something I’m content — until it comes to tv clothes. The funky pattern made the tv screen go kind of nutzo. My friend and assignment editor walked up to me after show and said, “yea, that dress, don’t wear it again.” Can you imagine my face?
I checked it out and he’s right. The vintage style and colors were fine, it’s just the pattern. Just wish they made them like these still. The length was mid-calf. Lady-like and sweet. Check out the conservative neck! What a bummer.
p.s. this is the type of dress Banana Republic should have tried to recreate in their mad-men line. Yet to see a pretty neck or flattering length in their collection. Remind me, who can really wear pencil skirts? Not this lady. Doesn’t matter how much weight I lose. Can’t shove myself in there.
