I want to like this — how often, by the way, do I write that basic sentiment? — but the ribbons are too cutesy for me and the cut too shapeless. I might begin my revamping by cutting it off at that horizontal seam in her knee region. I would definitely keep the shoes and the nail polish.
Basically, I’m hearing Tim Gunn tsk, “Student work,” although perhaps he’s referring to the quality of this post. Sometimes, I just want to show you an outfit, but there are no elegantly eloquent ways to poke at it,and yet it’s not SO bad that I can go full “WORDS WORDS WORDS” on it. This is not “WORDS” bad. It’s more like… “A few light syllables.” Which is to say, and I know I’ve said it before: There is a hole in this bucket. Fix it, dear Henry. Dear Henry, fix it.
