Let’s all admit it: We want this dress from Alice by Alice Temperley.
If only I could curate it! Shit.
Why are her shoes untied?
Nah! Hoops don’t do it for me but I wouldn’t mind the boots, handy for when I cut the grass in the churchyard next door.
Skye, she dare not bend over and tie her boots lest her hair gets entangled with the laces and she has to spend the rest of the day scuttling around like a crab!
Where does one source this Messy looking Expensive High End Designer Product?
I hate and loathe the Dickens-era chimney sweep boots.
Was someone paid a wage to style this? If so the World Has Gone Mad and I am Weeping for the Future. Where’s Make Do Style when you need her????
ooh I quite like this. I have very similar shoes but I usually do up the laces to avoid accidents,
Bet it’ll be an outrageous amount of money.
are those two knitting needles behind her left leg? i guess it’s good to have a hobby….
Not totally sold on the dress (would like it better if it were looser, or a top) but I see your point.
is that a man?
There are not words for how shiteous this dress would look like on me. I have hips, plus I have this weird tendency of tying my shoes. Lose/lose. Also, do you think she knows that her calves are the same size as her thighs?
It is unfortunate that the model reminds me of a tranny client I had to shop for once! I love the stripe dress and the styling is done this way as it is aimed at a younger crowd as it is a diffusion – but hey who are they kidding it is cheaper stuff and all ages will buy. I’m bored of this style of styling but what can you do.
She looks like one of the “girls” on RuPaul’s Drag Race!
love it – nautical but nice.
If you win the lottery, you need to curate some WendyB jewelry first. I’ll make you a gigantic spider if you want!
There is no need to lust over this dress, every single shop has one such in spring collections, you can choose from Made in China (Topshop), Made in Cambodia (H&M), Made in Turkey (Zara), Made in Pakistan (River Island), only to mention a couple. The dress itself is cute, I’m a huge curator of stripes, but not worth the designer fee.
WendyB, I want some of your fabulous jewelry, too! I’m obsessed with that Victorian buckle ring you designed. A woman can dream…
No, I think if we were truthful about it, we would admit that what we really want is to be the woman in that dress. Short of that we would settle for a long weekend with the woman in that dress. But given enough time alone with the woman in that dress we might decide that the dress is all we could put up with… and then we would have to be honest with ourselves… do we really want to be seen in this dress in public?
That model is DISGUSTINGLY skinny. But maybe that’s why the stripes are fine on her…if me, with my hourglass J. Lo-ish body wore this thing, people around could go blind. 😀
Skye -Effortlessly Chic = cannot make an effort.
David – I would like to see you in the boots AND the dress.
Faux Fuchsia – I think Selfridges, but you guys are ruining it for me, waaah!
Cheraya – At least you like it.
boops – I worried about the knitting needles but I still wanted the fucking dress.
Dru – Thank god.
Sheri – Hahahahahahahahahaha!
Ann – The calves are verging on BIGGER. Wow.
Make Do – YEs, I see the Tranny. Maybe it’s Lou Doillon (sp)?
Jill – God I love RuPaul.
Lisa – YES, but they have ruined it for me now.
WendyB- Okay, I want diamond safety pins first though.
dust – THE DRESS IS DEAD TO ME NOW.
Stella Mayfair – A woman MUST dream.
Mr Mann – Sobering thoughts.
Mia – If you have a J-Lo-ish body you can wear a see-through catsuit, or just go naked! You are blessed.
It’s an epileptic fit waiting to happen.
Sister Wolf, I’m so happy you didn’t mention the words “nautical” and “trend” . After being conditioned by fashion magazines to see those words together when looking at blue and white striped things, I was expecting it and braced myself for it but you never did it. Thank you.
Winter Bird – Do jumping jacks; cause seizures. Pretty much my criteria for an outfit.
Winter Bird – LOOK AWAY!
GLC – I nearly had a seizure reading the words “nautical” and “trend.”
Go to Beverly Hills Thrift store
cut up plus size “nauti-inspired” yacht tunic on diagonal along neckline
put said thing on
let fall off shoulders to one side, fold until fabulously awkward
belt with some cheap black belt hanging around
use extra strips from neckline as drawstrings to pointlessly hang from back of belt
put on eyeliner with your pinkie
oh, and as it isn’t in the above directions, don’t pay for the tunic at the thrift store. tell them you’re reviving it for no charge.
ever been in a comp programming class and had a goony teacher make you list steps to making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to then try making a sandwich live as per your directions…stabbing the lid when “open lid” is not included, smearing peanut butter on his hand when “on bread” is not included, etc. these directions above should be followed literally. just because.
Yep, I could source this dress – may get get “Made in Turkey” one. I already have a well-curated collection of chimney sweep boots, and knitting needles.
i want it.
but alice temperley can suckit if she thinks i will spend that much on it.
Maybe you’ll just “find” one or “procure” it.
Steven Tyler in drag. Nothing more to say.
Maybe if Goony Bird had it on…
I like the shoes though!
that model makes me want to throw up.
Kate – Will do!
Cricket9 – Yeah, I have curated a shitload of those boots, too.
my favorite – Well, thanks for backing me up on wanting it though.
The SHoeGirl – Oooh, like on eBay?
cker – HAHAHAHAHHAHA!
Alicia – Hahahahahahaha! Goony Bird would definitely ruin it for me, if you guys hadn’t already done such a good job of it.
Jules – God, jesus, drink some ginger ale!
I’d look mighty fine in that with my big ol bra hanging out of it.
listen to Mom of Shoes talk: http://www.stylecaster.com/news/7277/judy-aldridge-of-atlantis-home-opens-up-about-vintage-living-and-good-design
*I* like it, SW! If Anorexic Steven Tyler can’t ruin it for me, nothing can.
I like the shoes, the dress is just whatever. I think we are all in some striped frenzy..something about wanting to be sailors. I made a striped outfit, inspired by Vivienne Westwood, that beats that for miles.
on martin and osa’s site you’ll see a “curated closet” slogan, trademarked, no less. influenced by sea of hoes? i’m appalled.
Tell me about it! Too bad I hate ginger. So ginger ale is naturally out.
