This is one of a few dresses that felt very Discount de la Renta to me.

I like the lively colors, I like a floral, and I’m glad she stuck a bright shoe with it. But there’s something keeping me from loving it. Is it too long in the back? Is it that the black bodice is too low in the front? Is it that this has been a very long week and I am fresh out of enthusiasm? Is it that I am thinking about what pies to make next week, and how badly I want to eat my biscuit stuffing and maybe I should just make a test batch real fast? Could be any of those things. So let me know: Is this great as-is, or is it a few paces from fantastic?
