Ruffles go wrong yet again with Karen Zambos Vintage Couture

Ruffle_dress

"This one’s destined to become a favourite," proclaims Shopbop, speaking of this ‘Shimmy Dress’ by Karen Zambos Vintage Couture. Yes, but who with, Shopbop, we want to know? Who is this dress destined to become a favourite with? Hand over their names and we can get them under Fashion Police surveillance, ready for the moment they try to wear this dress in public and we’re forced to sweep in and make an arrest.

Quite apart from the ruffles, there’s the small matter of crotch concealment to consider here. You see, we like to insist that our dresses completely cover our crotches. It’s just one of our strange little quirks. This dress, though… well, it may be doing the job in this particular picture, but if that poor model leans back even slightly, then the ruffled will be the least of her worries…

What do you think?

    Completely agree! Way too short. I’ve never seen a “vintage” dress like that before, although the color is great!

    I looove navy satin. But don’t like the cute of this dress.

    I really like the colour, and the ruffles on the top part of the sleeve. Not so much the way the ruffles just keep on going all the way around.

    I love the color, just not the cut. And the model’s bow-legged stance scares me.
