My beef with this isn’t even… whatever is happening to her midsection. (She looks like an illuminated manuscript. Like someone just decided to start committing a Bible verse to paper in fancy calligraphic style and then got bored before finishing the first letter. Crapping out at the ABCs, as it were.) I don’t like that the shoulders and sleeves on this sucker make her look slumpy. Don’t bring a girl’s posture down before its time, designers. Let blogging do that, the way it’s happening for the rest of us.
