A Bergdorf Blonde's Opinion

Now that it is November, the holiday party season can begin! Bergdorf's read my mind and sent me a reminder that I need to get a new fancy dress for all these events. However, even at such a lovely establishment there are good, bad, and just pain ugly dresses...

The (Very) Good:
I am now obsessed with this Vera Wang stunner. The detail of the shirring is so festive and beautiful. I also am a fan of the "aubergine" color, it's dark enough to still be slimming but a change from basic black.

And there is a bow in the back... you are like a well-wrapped present!

The Bad:
While this Donna Karen look isn't all that terrible, it is a tad matronly. Save it until you're had a few kids.

The Oh-So Ugly:
Ewww, Juicy Couture you should have stopped at tracksuits. This dress is not appropriate for any nice event! And I just can't get over my dislike of leggings. Ick.

I usually like DVF (Diane vonFurstenburg) but this dress is a mess. I'm pretty sure my high school sewing projects turned out better than this. It's shapeless and boring! Boo!

Now off to find fun places to wear this stuff!

hmmm...i feel like that poor guy on Project Runway (who got kicked off after putting together a dress that looked like somethign akin to a tree trunk in both color and shape) was trying for this look with all of his hand rouching -- aaahh if only he had chosen the lovely aubergine instead of oak bark brown.
