Duro Olowu dress & Christian Louboutin pumps

Hey, Triple B! Your favorite cousin is back. As I explained last week, in addition to my Final Friday musings on serious topics like marriagebrotherhood and parenting, I will post here
each and every Thursday about…Fashion. My lil’ cuz Venus and I will alternate each week between looks for the ladies and the fellas to wear not only on the wedding day but to all of those events leading up to the nuptials as well. Today, we’re breaking down what we like — and loathe — about this look recently worn by one of my favorite actresses (big eyes and all), Tracee Ellis Ross.

Mars thinks – This dress can be worn well by women with various body types. I initially thought the Duro Olowu dress was too busy, but quickly changed my mind. Those “Get ’em Girl” pumps complete the look. I’ll admit that I selfishly prefer Tracee wearing (ahem) fitted attire, however she pulls this bridal shower look off rather well.

Venus thinks – Although people often associate multi-print dresses with rag dolls, Tracee is far from that. I, actually, am a big fan of multi-print dresses. The color pallet in this dress makes it much easier to accessorize. Although I’m not too crazy about the high-low cut of this frock (personally they do nothing for me) the big hair and pink Louboutins go perfect! This is a great bridal shower look for a guest or even the bride herself.

Remember, each Thursday Mars vs. Venus will critique a new look. Please share your thoughts of this week’s outfit in the comment section. Also, let Venus and I know what you would add or subtract if you or your significant other rocked this colorful ensemble. Next week’s ensemble will be a groom’s option for an engagement session photo shoot.
