      lmao. omg im glad someone said this. I was looking at it and the first one i liked cos of the jacket? blazer? whatever like they were not exceptional and the rest were ok. They are not by any means awful, but i dont think they are exceptional. they are NOT “classic and stunning”… that aside. i actually clicked on my design thing earlier this morning and it directed me to “word press?” i like the orange as well.

    The first dress did it for me,so edgy! The rest of the dresses look like they are from other collections.beautiful dresses,but as a collection they just weren’t nsync#my own two cents#

    The models look old. Maybe the clothes were actually designed for older women or mature in mind.
