Atelier Pierrot Vest Bustle Dress

Wow. This dress from Atelier-Pierrot is literally flirting with a couple of eras at once - the lapels, navy stripe print, and neat white buttons could have come straight from tailored fifties/sixties officewear, while the shirred skirt and the corset-style lacing up the back have an element of Moulin Rouge ooh-la-la. It's not shy, but how great would this be for holiday parties with the right updo and the right handbag? ($286 or so with the current exchange rate.)

P.S. - Try to ignore the last photo on the website. It really is not improved by being worn over a frilly short-sleeved blouse.

While I agree this dress is BOLD, I'm not sure that if i saw a corset back and half-a-ballroom skirt at a cocktail party I'd think, "How retro/chic!" I might whisper, "Check out how many people that girl can bump into at once in her Gone With the Wind meets Slutty Sailor get up."

Can this dress qualify for agree to disagree?

I think the dress is vastly improved by the addition of the shirt, actually. Primarily, this is because the dress really is an unabashed Lolita style.

I'm with Anna.

I would think this would qualify for a doubtblush long before the black and red jeans. Yikes.
