Enchanting Lace Inset Dress
Deck review at Rothman & Ogletree, 9:30 a.m.
The executive summary is boring. The valuation is iffy. The cost structure and price points are off. No visuals. No imagination. No emotion.
You could be talking about the sods in the room, too. Old man Caruthers hasn’t smiled in decades, stuck in that same blue pinstripe. McClendon has cornered the market on pant suits that actually smell like your aunt’s attic.
Next to the dark navy power statement you usually wear for these reviews, you see this. Simple. Creative. Outside the box.
The poetry of lace and skirt-length.
The rhythm of pintucks and a boat neck giving way to a V.
The revelation of color.
Perhaps some simple enchantment is just what the company needs.
Enchanting Lace Inset Dress (No. 5764). Soft and comfortable-in-your-skin cotton voile with dyed-to-match lace insets. Body is lined in contrasting cream rayon visible through the lace (front, back yoke, and sleeves are unlined). Mid-calf length, self-fabric belt at waist, invisible zipper at wearer’s left. Also appropriate for cobblestone strolls and al fresco dinners. Made in India.
