Goodness was last week’s acid green Callot Soers dress controversial and divisive! You either really, really, really love it. Or really didn’t. If I’d gone with everyone who rated it 6 and over it would have come out an 8.1 out of 10. If I’d gone with everyone who rated it 5 and under it it would have rated a 3 out of 10. Combined, the rating comes to a 6.5 out of 10, which is a rating that no-one gave it on their own!
It’s Valentine’s day, and even though I’m not a Valentines fan at all I thought it was a good excuse to show you something ruffly and pink.
I failed to find a suitable frock that was quite and pink and quite as ruffly as I had hoped, but I did find this sweet but slightly restrained pink and cream party frock from the MFA Boston.
Doesn’t this girls dress with its stripes and panniered overskirt just speak of old fashioned Valentines: all flower garlands and cupids, and maybe just a little yellowing from age?
But is looking like a Valentine really a good thing? Is the dress a cliche of itself or a perfectly sweet bit of nostalgia?
