I almost didn't post these guys. I kind of thought they fell below the B- mark (I'm only posting the As and Bs), but as it turns out, I just wasn't paying close enough attention. I'd skimmed their looks when I should have examined them. I'm not saying they're much more than a B- (a C, may I remind you, is average), but there are things to like here:
Things to like: clean military with a bright cobalt blue sash, a robey knotted dress, a liquid gold ankle length, and a structured false camo. They can get a little chintzy for my present taste, but I do quite like these. Even if the final look reminds me somewhat of a marriage between the structure of this Calvin Klein and the pattern/idea of this Chanel.
