The Case for the Defence:

The Little White Dress (LWD) is the new LBD. It’s just as simple, just as chic, but it’s a little more interesting, and a little more summery. This one also has angel wings on the back: we submit the following into evidence:

The Case for the Prosecution:

Um, that’s a cape. You did SEE the cape, didn’t you? ┬áSo, basically, it’s a $750 shift dress. With a cape. The prosecution rests.

Guilty or Innocent?

    Dang! I voted “innocent” before looking at all the evidence.
    Big mistake.

    totally guilty!

    the prosecution didnt need to say much – is there a cut at the back that looks like bra hooks showing? or my glasses need renewing?

    Little white dress not living up to its name here

    I voted innocent – I think the back detail is not so bad and gives it something extra to make it stand out from otheor LWDs. That said, I wouldn’t pay the price for it.
