This week’s Rate the Dress pick is thematic: it’s a francaise (be prepared for all the francaise posts…), it’s as blue as the ocean around Hawaii, and it’s covered in a lush array of flowers worthy of any tropical garden. Will it make you feel like you’re on vacation at Versailles and Waikiki at the same time, or will it leave you cold?
Last week: a late Regency era evening dress
The star-shaped-sequins covered evening dress didn’t inspire an outpouring of commentary and interest, but most of you who rated it agreed that it was an extremely attractive and charming example of its type.
..well, at least all of you who commented by Saturday evening did. Perhaps there was an outpouring of dislike before the ratings closed, because…
The Total: 9.4 out of 10
I haven’t had internet since I wrote this post, so don’t know what the final rating is. It will be a mystery until I make it out of the valley and back to town.
There isn’t a huge amount to rate with this francaise: it doesn’t have a petticoat, it hasn’t been posed and styled with accessories. But I thought the colour, patterning, and trim were interesting enough to be worthy of your attention.
Lots of photos, not a lot of commentary: I’m leaving it up to you to supply that! What do you think? What do you imagine it being worn with?
Rate the Dress on a Scale of 1 to 10
A reminder about rating — feel free to be critical if you don’t like a thing, but make sure that your comments aren’t actually insulting to those who do like a garment. Our different tastes are what make Rate the Dress so interesting. It’s no fun when a comment implies that anyone who doesn’t agree with it, or who would wear a garment, is totally lacking in taste.
(as usual, nothing more complicated than a .5. I also hugely appreciate it if you only do one rating, and set it on a line at the very end of your comment, so I can find it! Thanks in advance!)
