Oh dear, oh dear. We were having such a good run with Rate the Dress, and then last week the grey & peach 1860s dress disappointed so many of you. There were some that still loved it, to be fair, but not enough to raise the rating above a 5.9 out of 10 (and if I had accepted Sineuve’s ‘-8’ rating it would have been even lower!)
Let’s see if this week’s dress can bring back the wins?
My selection brings together all the things I have been blogging about in the last few days: early 50s, mid-50s, summertime, & Japan, all in one perky party frock. Caroline Schnurer’s ‘Rice Bowl Dress‘ uses Japanese paper tie-dye designs on cotton, a backwards kimono-collar, and a very innovative parasol-inspired pleated skirt supported by vertical bones.
What do you think? Is all that green fresh and summer-y? Does the pairing of classic style with some very innovative construction work, or is the whole boned-skirt thing just a bit too odd? And what would you think of the dress if you didn’t know how it was constructed?
