If she’d just left this alone as a dress, I’d be fine. The world doesn’t embrace paisley enough.

But the matching pants are a sheath too far. Suddenly it goes from being an unusual pattern, to looking like the artsy flames of hell are licking up at her form as payback for a\influcting upon us the pestilence of a hundred sparkly, feathery Drunk Vegas Mermaid gowns. You’d think the devil would appreciate those old evils; maybe he was just expecting a cut.

    It’s from her Mommy&Me line for Hannah Anderson.

      Hahahaha! That made me laugh so hard. You win the comments today, Betty.

  2. Sandye

    I think she turned a Vera Bradley bag into a dress.

  3. Kate

    That bag does NOT work.

  4. Alma

    Despite all the craziness I am somehow still staring at her beautiful face!

    (PS- I secretly don’t hate this as much as I probably should….)

  5. deee

    And in the same vein as Betty, I didn’t know Children’s Place was selling big girl clothes.

  6. Catherine D

    Fugly but fun. I like it!

  7. Bella

    Black capri leggings would work much better, but what a great paisley!

  8. Daenerys

    and her hair is GORGEOUS!

    I’m not ashamed to say I love it with the patterned pants. I wish the pattern was all over the top/tunic/dress instead of the black sleeves/yoke.

    Love, love, love the paisley, but, yeah, one piece at a time, not together. And Kate’s right, the purse clashes.

    I would REALLY like to see the pants with a simple black top, and/or the dress alone, with or without black tights (someone please call Zooey Deschanel and explain to her that this is something you COULD wear those with). Ideally, each of those looks on different days. I think they’d both be Fab!

    I hate paisley, so I can’t really be objective about the outfit as such. I’m just glad it didn’t end in a sheer skirt or tulle ruffle.

    In the early ’90s, two of my friends had stretch velvet paisley pants from Limited Too that I coveted SO HARD. These remind me so much of those and I secretly still want a pair.

  13. nobody much

    I like one or the other! just not both together.

    Comments from my 4 year old:
    “I love that dress! scroll back!”
    ***scrolls back to picture***
    “it’s very pretty. How old is her?”
    “She’s an adult”
    “Oh. That looks like an outfit I would wear. Maybe a 7 year old could wear it too. Definitely should be a kid wearing it.”

    That’s not even a pretty paisley, and I don’t get the way the pants fit–they’re too baggy for leggings, but they’re not quite pants. And all this way too muchness with that bag and those bracelets–OTT indeed!

  16. Lily1214

    I love the shoes. The rest, meh…

  17.  HelenBackAgain

    I forgot to say yesterday, I also love her bracelets. I’d rather see one on each wrist, or one worn at a time; together, these big statement pieces are competing with each other. But they’re both gorgeous.
