I like it when the models are standing straight up and down — it means I can actually see the dresses
You know what is truly fantastic? Ill tell you: When I come across a designer’s web page that doesn’t use all manner of Flash, so I can actually pull some images without having to resort to PrtScn–>Paint–>The Gimp. Jesus Peiro, I thank you for your use of plain old jpegs!
Damn, that is just gorgeous — perfect for those looking for a little shoulder and décolletage coverage. I usually like a little more flare in the hips, but if you’ve got kind of a flat tummy (or some super foundation garments) why ruin a good straight line? I think the classic simplicity is what I love best.
I dislike this dress as much as I do like the one above. No, wait, scratch that. I only think I dislike this dress, seeing as that I can’t be too sure. Maybe it’s just the way the model is sitting all scrunched up like that, but it looks like there are all sorts of crazy gauzy bits hanging off her back, her arms, and possibly even her frontal areas. Or maybe her mischievous younger brother jammed her train down the bodice?
Now this one I love. It would be just too perfect for an outdoorsy, gardenish, not-to-formal affair in the springtime or summer. If the temperature becomes uncomfortable, the bride can slip out of her sheer coat and enjoy feeling the sun on her (one hopes thoroughly sunblocked) shoulders. My mamman always did advise me to wear layers when moving from indoors to outdoors and back again.
It’s always amused me that one designer can group dresses so lovely and dresses so odd looking into a single collection. In much the same way, I am amused when I see bridals in lovely — or at the very least, normal — poses grouped with models who are smelling their own armpits or hunched over or curled up into little frothy white balls.
I mean really now, Mr. Peiro and all of the other gownmakers, how on earth are we supposed to scrutinize the dresses we’ve come to your web sites to examine?
