Jersey Halter Dress

Today's Breakup: Ligne 6 Martin Margiela

We're tired of talking about how perfect that Adam knit frock is or how much we covet those patent Chloe sandals (still obsessing). It's beautiful outside and, naturally, this happiness makes us want to counterbalance with some proper New York pessimism. That said, we think Ligne 6 Martin Margiela is a major disappointment. Actually, to be fair, some of the sportswear referencing printed cotton frocks are up to par but this monstrosity is unacceptable. I mean, really? 'Jersey halter dress' is the best you can do? The last time we saw this dress (and it was the exact same dress) was in the Walgreens on Collins Ave. This thing looks like it should cost 12.99 and be worn with Havaianas (shudder) and a generous swathing of aloe vera. Yuck. First of all everyone knows that these dresses make your breasts look horrible (there are other adjectives but we insist on being ladylike) and, belly or no-belly, make you look like your carrying more than just 'water-weight'. To top it all off it surely comes mid-calf (attractive!) and gives you tourist tan-lines up top. We are really disappointed that La Garconne, an e-commerce normally quite trustworthy, thought this was a good buy. If we don't see this thing in the sale section or re-merched to the lingerie category (maybe people will think it is something then can wear while, uh, dying their hair?) we will have lost our faith in the cognizance of fashionistas. Pray that someone got fired (by fax) for this unoriginal, unflattering, $300 dollar mistake.
