So much of this is so good.

I am not entirely sure why we have a weird patch over there on the right of the photo, and her shoes read EXTREMELY Sophomore Class Spring Formal to me — a little too clunky, a little too disco, perfect for a kid who doesn’t want stilettos and won’t spring for Louboutins because that’s absurd even at 35 sometimes, much less fifteen. I wish for something a tad more sophisticated-feeling, but I’m so transfixed by the chipper pattern and the lack of nipple-evoking chest darts that I’m calling this a basic win. An A-minus, or MAYBE a B-plus if I’m out of Diet Coke and thus particularly cranky.
