On Trial: Anna Sui’s newspaper print dress

Annasuinewspaerdress

I don’t think I’d have a whole lotta love for Anna Sui’s newspaper print dress  even if we were to take the nature of the print out of the equation – that frilly neck and pussy bow is way too "frou frou" for my simple tastes – but  let’s face it, it’s not helping much, is it?  A dress that people can read – or that people might want to wrap their fish and chips in – isn’t my idea of fun, but then again, I don’t hate it enough to make it a Crime of Fashion, so I’ve decided to throw caution to winds and put it up On Trial. What do you think? Is it fun and fabulous, or do you prefer to get your reading material from actual newspapers?

    despite my complete understanding of everything you are saying, i tend to love it. i think a person could really rock that dress. it has a sense of humor… think about it with really cute red peep toe heels and a killer white purse.
    i mean, i wouldn’t wear it if i worked as a journalist, but otherwise… i dig it.

    i hate it
    i swear i saw exactly the same thing before – the colors, the print, the pattern… everything
    what is it?
    THE WALLPAPER OF A TOILET
    btw it’s not a new idea using newspaper prints on clothes n’ bags
    the design, the cutting, the details…
    trashy is the only word in my mind

    I’m a fan of newspaper print on clothes, no matter what!

    I think it would be really cute as a long jacket perhaps, but I’m not digging it as a dress.
