Sequester These Sequins

This is not working for me.
I don't think the outfit is doing her any favors and
there's no chance it would flatter me.
Not that I'd try this skirt and yes I like sequins.
But I've been meh on colorblocking and it looks much too long.
Is it styled wrong or too big or is it the semi-tuck?
No better from the back, could be even worse.
Plus, it's $695.

  1. this one reminds me of a little patchwork bookbag I had in 1971. Mine lacked sequins, but it was very smart and colourful. This needs to be 3 inches shorter I think. I would wear this with nude pumps or gold sandals and white blouse or tank top. Thank god it is $695!

    1. I'd rather have you style me than whoever styled her!

  2. My motto is if it shortens, thickens and frumpafies a beautiful young model it is not coming near my short, thick and frumpy self.

    1. That is also my gauge; if they can't make a model look good ...

  3. this was in the window of the Madison Avenue collection store for what seemed like ages. So, as you might have suspected, it is even less attractive in real life. A bad idea gone expensively wrong.

    1. Eeek! Even less attractive in real life?

  4. It is shockingly unflattering. I totally agree with Jude. If it looks this frumpy on the gorgeous gazelle who is modelling it, can you imagine the real life horrors on my own less lofty frame?
    It is just So Wrong.

    1. LOL, don't think us average folks stand a chance.

  5. I think a lot has to do with where the center square patch is located on both sides, plus that it looks to be cut completely straight (no taper but no A-line) and is below the knee. But for the colors/sequins, I can imagine it being worn by one of the nuns who taught me in high school.

    1. That darker patch being the focus is not good placement, IMO. Trying to imagine it on a nun and I can't do it ... ;)

  6. When it doesn't even look good on the model, no way am I wearing it!

    1. There are a lot of show stoppers with this one.

  7. The square patch at the back looks like some kind of hillbilly fix where the butt was worn out. I don't like the shoes with it either, a nice, elegant nude heel would have been a styling improvement IMO.

    1. Think the hillbilly patchwork and Collection sequins is a high low mix gone wrong. I like your choice of shoes much better.

  8. Wow! if the skinny model looks bus huge in it what chance is there for the rest of us? The length too is sooo unflattering. it's amazing this sort of stuff gets made up,

    1. You can tell she's tall but how did they manage to make her look wide when she must be skinny as a beanpole?

  9. How did this get past whoever makes the final decision on these outfits? It breaks so many rules...What an expensive mistake!
    Can't you just see this in Tim Gunn's "what's wrong with this" column?

    1. Surely they tested the skirt before deciding to go to production. Makes you wonder if the committee consisted of a bunch of yes people.

  10. This is just wrong.

    Wrong, I say.
