Last week I thought the rather mad 1860s dress, while not exactly attractive, was at least fascinating, which I feel is sometimes better than pretty. But your responses started out quite unenthusiastic, and went from there to quite enthusiastic, and QUITE unenthusiastic, resulting in a pretty dismal rating of 5.2 out of 10, which is the lowest we’ve had in a long while. At least those of us who liked it won’t have a lot of competition if we decide to recreate it!
This week I’m sticking with the theme of rather odd and oddly placed decoration on a neutral background, and seeing if it can work in some instances.
What do you think of this summer suit that reflects the new, simple, tailored style and oriental influence of mid-teens fashions? Is the creamy neutral sophisticated or boring? The abundance of matching buttons cunning or fussy? Does the trim, drawing attention, as it does, to the cut-on sleeves and flattening bosom, perfectly period or rather atrocious?
