Underwear as Outerwear: Proenza Schouler slip dress

Proenza Schouler layered silk slip dressIt is one thing to design a pretty slip dress, but quite another to design (what we think is) a pretty slip dress and then put an ugly sheer outer layer over the top of it.  So you have a slip dress stuck to…another slip dress.  And what’s with the ruffles on the shoulders and around the hem, Proenza Schouler?  If you are trying to pass this off as an ordinary dress, we’re not fooled.  Even the poor model is slightly embarrassed, taking a shifty look around to see whether anyone is watching her being photographed in her underwear.

What do you think though?  Have you embraced the whole ‘underwear as outerwear trend’ and think that this would make the perfect addition to your wardrobe?  If so, you can buy it for $1225 (that’s expensive under/outerwear!) at Saks Fifth Avenue.
