For sale at Nordstroms, Think the buyers are banking on this style being big? Dresses here from Maggy London, Theory, Ralph Lauren, ABS AllenSchwartz, BCBG MaxAzria, and Suzy Chin. I like the look, but I'm not certain the look will like me.
You know who I see in this? LauraLo.
My favorite of the bunch is this by Ralph Lauren - not quite an empire waist - raised just a couple of inches. And this one by BCBG MaxAzria. Notice the raglan sleeve - squared at the shoulder giving that shoulder emphasis without going all the way to 80's power shoulders, and beautifully arranged and stitched down pleats. I even like the collar - not quite the deep cowl of the 80's, but not a close standup collar that has been shown the last several seasons either. That, and this one is maybe only 1" above the natural waist. I love the top on this one, not so much the A-line shape of the skirt. I think the proportion of the skirt to top is wrong - it's as if the skirt is too short for the top, and too wide. Notice how the Ralph Lauren above looks sleeker? Although I'd bet money that both models are the same size.
