There’s a lot going on here. It’s a Marc Jacobs dress that feels like a Betsey Johnson. Right? The plain black pumps ground it though, as does the drama-free hairstyle. And overall, I don’t mind how there are several personalities happening at once in this design. Partly because of the black and white striped bow at the hip which somehow feels neat and tidy in the storm. And the checked pattern across the back has that effect too.
