from weddings, to graduations, to summer cocktail parties, it’s always a dress that you need in spring.
this year, i need a dress for my nephew’s graduation and it is time to start shopping! may is just days away! if i don’t get this sitch wrapped up soon, i am sure to end up with something that looks awful and does not fit. (hate that!).
i am coo coo for this amazing bcbg dress from the max azria runway collection. it is everything. for starters, the kimono belt is HUGE for spring. (recall #nyfw recap here and my post on the tie belt here). the soft, romantic vibe and floaty feel of this dress is totally on point AND will be the perfect foil for the smoldering hot days of summer in the south. the missing back panel will require the “appropriate undergarment,” to be sure, but with that in place, i think i can rock this baby to all my important events this summer.
while i had high hopes for the remainder of bcbg’s spring 2015 runway collection, it seems like a complete bust (at least online). all of the other frocks don’t even look good on the models. ouch! no way they will look good on my body in real life. ugh. so sad. so much potential.
the problem? they totally ditched the tie belt on all the other pieces (except one where they ditched the one shoulder look). critical mistake. epic.
below, i have hooked you up with a comparison of a couple of the bcbg runway looks and the real-life companion. what do you think . . . pass for fail?
and, hey! turn the volume up and rock your way into monday morning. . .
