At least it’s slimming

The best thing I can say about this dress is, “at least it’s slimming!?”

Now, I realize that the Sex and the City crew has been doing a lot of appearances lately. Perhaps they’re running out of stunning outfits to wear. But this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress is a doozy.

Let’s look at the color palate first. Brown, purple, turquoise, yellow, black and green. I have a general philosophy that there is an inverse ratio between the number of colors in a single outfit and it’s attractiveness. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, but they are few and far between. And this dress ain’t one of those exceptions.

Next, let’s look at the cut, especially of the bodice. The neckline and the placement of the purple trim looks like garanimal dominatrix. And it angles her boobs to look like…well…duck feet. Pointing oddly sideways.

I think I’d like the dress better without the placket and four purposeless buttons, and if the brown parts were white or ivory.
