It's very clear

Some clothes were meant for women without a lot of curves.

It is supposed to show ingenuity to use a man's shirt as a skirt. At least that's what I think I read somewhere. But what happened to the need to look good. I see lots and tons of really cute skirts out there. Someone needs to send this girl to the skirt store. And I love the jacket!
 Nope. Needs a white bra. To me this look is jarring.
 The top is so pretty and the skirt is so BIIIIIG.
 I just don't think pretty heels help ratty jeans much.
 Fit?
NO words.
 OK. You buy a coat that is way too big and hang it off your body with straps. Why?
And here we have blanket, tied.
 Just nope.
Sheet, tied.

I am not a fan of some of the trends set out by designers. I realize that some of the trends are actually worn by those with money and not much fat. However, I've always been of the opinion that fashions are to make you more attractive or more interesting or to show your personality. I'm at a loss to know what part of the personality this look shows.

Fashion vs Art

 This is definitely not an easy-wear piece. And I'm not sure it could be cleaned.
 I'm amazed at the workmanship in this piece.
 I have collected some photo images of items that have been sent down runways and there is no real wearability to these designs. I can't imagine sitting, getting through doorways, dining, conversations in sotto voce, and dancing with any of these designs. While they are artistic, they are now wearable in the normal sense of the word.
 Sometimes, just because you can, it doesn't mean you should.
 Sitting? Maybe not.
 This looks to me like a washboard with billowing sheets on top. I can't help but think this skirt would be cute if it were shorter and worn with a fitted short sleeve sweater. In white. Really cute.
 No words.
 This piece is interesting. I'd be able to look at it for a long time. Designers do seem to do interesting designs to throw in with their everyday looks. I suppose this design could be worn to an upscale gathering. Maybe by Daphne Guiness.
Amazing workmanship in this one. The time it took to design and make it must be huge. It is truly a piece of art.

Just a little bit

 I really don't like the way the train comes out of the skirt. I'd change it.
Looks like Halloween. Makes the upper thigh look huge.
Wrong fit. Wrong dress for the body.
 No fit. Wrong dress for the body.
Just no. I still haven't figured out what is so great about a pair of ratty jeans. But even so, these are just too much, too big, too ratty. Even Goodwill wouldn't want them.

White, yes, no or otherwise

 This dress is white and simple and almost anything can be done with it. I can see some pretty jewelry, colored accessories, a beautiful shawl, lots or gold or silver jewelry, a navy blazer, etc.
 Being Boho inclined, this is a wonderful look to me. I see natural accessories, leathers, hand made beads, fringy kimono, wonderful turquoise, etc .
 She makes any color look good.
The lace. Ah, the lace. I love every piece. But. Now we are looking at white. And there is an argument about white. Is there an appropriate season for it? If so, when? Is there an appropriate place for it? Where?

I remember when the color matching arrived. I was judged a Spring. I'm not supposed to wear white. And if a person's teeth aren't white, wearing white is not so good. And there are now even wedding dresses not using white. The times, they are a changin.

Nope

 Shoes are great to keep feet from hitting the ground but sometimes they are just too much for me. I'm not with the frilly dress and combat boot thing. I can see that something unexpected is sometimes interesting but I'm not with it.

Boots with no backs. Why?
 Socks with sandals. Why?
Just no words for this.
Now you can wear your kitchen mop.
I'm done.
