Crime of Fashion: Pluge foil dress by Lipsy

Foildress

I’m probably setting myself up for some abuse by describing this dress as a Crime of Fashion, because I know there are some fans of the "shiny and overtly sexy" look out there. While we’re on the subject, though, y’all can stop emailing me telling me the reason I don’t like your dresses is because I’m "too fat to wear them". The reason I don’t like your dresses is because I’m too old to wear them – there’s an important distinction there. Oh, and because I don’t want to walk around looking like I’m about to be basted in tinfoil, thanks very much.

With that out of the way, let me just say that, as well as making you feel like you’re what’s for dinner (and possibly helping you shed a few pounds in sweat, especially if the club is hot), the fabric of this also reminds me of those foil blankets they wrap around trauma victims to stop them shivering. I’m not sure whether the dress will do that or not, but I do know I’d feel like a trauma victim if I tried to wear it. And would probably look like one, too. My main question now is: is it more horrible in the gold or in the silver?

    Blech, both are awful! Sorry, if Halle can’t pull it off, I can’t either.
    Plus I prefer not to offend the eyes of people around me…reflective clothing can blind you!

    paired with denim, this dress is possible.
    it can be done.
    I believe it.

    This is just nasty. The gold is marginally worse, but I’d still run screaming. Mind you, maybe if I wear this, the wonderful Wizard of Oz will give me that heart I so desparately need.

    If this dress was a jacket and was worn with dark-wash skinny jeans, it could’ve been an ok look. The gold one would not work no matter what.

    The edge to the silver lining is you can reapply lipstick by looking at your sleeve.
