Remember the glimpse I caught last week of the raspberry ballerina dress? Apparently, we are seeing the beginning of a trend: short hemlines and wildly full netty skirts, complete with double petticoats. What is the occaision that calls for this type of dress? Is it a prom dress? I don't know that I'd give up my probably first full-length formal gown for something that is more suited for rotating inside of a jewelry box.
Although the window dressing seems particularly sloppy this time (note the croooked boobline of the middle dress and the bungee cord holding the dress on the right onto the dummy), care is taken to accessorize appropriately. There must be a great collection of co-ordinating necklaces, little purses and shawls inside there. One day I may get up the nerve to go in, but I doubt if I'd be able to document the experience in photos.
What is going on with this dress? Is it too small to be closed in the back (Wouldn't be the first time) or is it designed to show as much back skin as possible? If that's the case, it seems a risky business to wear this one outside the dresing rooom. Maybe it comes with its own little bottle of spirit gum to keep it plastered to your flesh.
Call me easily influenced, but the more time I spend in front of the dress boutique window, the more I am starting to think that I need to have a formal ball gown. Something with glitter and a big full skirt. It seems unlikely that I would ever need one in the life I lead now, but maybe I could make something happen if I try hard enough.
Although I am staying at the Wynn next month. I wonder if I could go glittering around there?
