When we were shopping for our upcoming trip to LA, we stumbled upon this dress from Elizabeth and James, the line designed by Mary Kate and Ashley. First off, we gotta admit—we do secretly like the Olsen twins. We loved Mary Kate as the Bible thumping pothead on Weeds and one of our best celeb sightings of all times was seeing the two of them at the Louboutin store in the Meatpacking District.
Back to the dress. We thought this frothy lemonade color dress would be the perfect thing to wear in LA, and you know we do struggle when it comes to dressing on the West coast. The color is sunny and happy, it straddles the line between casual and dressy and would rock with a pair of gladiator sandals. Off to the dressing room we went.
We slid on the strapless silk dress, turned to the mirror and…
WE MIGHT AS WELL HAVE BEEN STARK NAKED!
The dress is completely see through. We’re not talking the sexy kind of almost see through where if you stare you can make out a panty line or slight outline of a nipple, we’re talking FULL ON SEE THROUGH—you could see our panties in their entirety. We wanted to like it so much, we thought maybe we could try to find a full boy short we could wear underneath it. But sanity regained its hold--there was no escaping the fact that the top was just as sheer and you could see our nipples. Ai-ya-yi!
Mary Kate and Ashley—listen up! If you’re going to charge $365 for a slip of a dress, at least make sure you can leave the house in it without getting arrested!
