  1. I like the colours and the pattern of this dress and it looks very beautiful on her. But I don't like the cut; the fabric looks stiff and makes her look bigger than she is. Nice combined with the golden shoes though!

  3. Althoug silver and blue are flattering colours for Q.M. this dress, may be because of the cut or the sleeves, ages her.

    1. exactly my thoughts! I love the fabric and these colours look really pretty on her, but if the sleeves where a little more narrow, it might have looked better.

  4. Lengths OK, high of the waist not so. The fabric is nice, the accessoires too.

    1. Seems rather ill-fitted to me (her grey suit). Could have been taken in at the waist.

    2. I meant the woman, not the suit, which seems too big. She is very good looking.

  7. I like everything about this outfit--the colours and cut of the dress are lovely--Mathilde seems to favour higher waists on many of her outfits--for all you young things, believe me as one gets older it can be comfortable and more flattering than a waistline on the waist. Like the shoes, bag and hair also.

    1. I am not a "young thing" (dislike labels) either. But I disagree. I do not find higher waistlines comfortable esp when you sit down. I do not find them flattering unless one is pregnant. If one has a fuller figure and does not want to emphasize the waist, a straight dress is a good option. Mathilde however, has a nice figure and would look better in dresses that have a waistline at the waist Imo.

      I for one love flowerprints and I do admit I like lot of what is called "Little-house-in-the-prairie"-dresses here!

  9. And a big NO again. Beautiful fabrics, but the style makes her older than her years. Pity.
