It's been a long day. I'm glad to be relaxing in bed now. I was too tired to even go out for dinner, so I ordered room service. It was a little warmer today and sunny, so I decided to wear my Soft Structured Dress. I really, really love this dress! It has a pretty print, it's flattering, and it's comfortable. I had planned on wearing my Frye boots and knee socks with this dress, but the cold temperatures here forced me to come up with something else. I decided to wear it with my cockle shell tights and booties. Here's the result:
I've got another round of reviews for you. I tried on everything I could find from your request. I'm going back one more time tomorrow, so let me know if there is anything else you would like me to review.
Tuileries Dress. I don't see this one online anymore. Weird. Anyway, I had alot of requests to review this one, so "ask and you shall receive." This must be a really popular dress. There was only 4 on them left in the store. There was no 6 or 8, so I tried on a size 4. What do you know? The size 4 fit perfect. So, this dress runs one size large. I liked the fit, but I'm just not digging the print. The silk feels really great against the skin. This seems like a quality-made dress. For those of you that really love this print, this dress is a winner.Tied Down Dress ($98). Here's another reader request. I tried on a size 6, but it was a little too big. I think I need a 4 in this dress. So, again, this dress runs a full size large. It wasn't anything special. It felt good and looked ok on, but it just didn't have that wow factor.
Sail Shapes Dress ($158). I never noticed this dress online, but it caught my attention in the store. It's such a cute print and silhouette. This is a size 6 and it fit good. I really like this dress! I can see this being a really great staple during the spring and summer. The only thing that bothered me about it was it really emphasized "the girls." LOL! Still, I'm kinda in love with it, but I'm going to wait it out for sale. Wishlisted.
Canopy Lookout Dress ($128). This dress was new to the store today. It comes in letter sizes rather than numbers. I tried on a size small, and it was a little big up top. It's a pretty dress, but I just wasn't feeling it. I like my white Beda dress better. Pass.
Sing Sweetly Party Dress ($148). I'm a little late to the game trying this one on, but better late than never right? I love the sweet bird print on this dress. I tried on a size 6 and it fit like a glove. I just don't have anywhere to wear this and it would require a strapless bra. However, I might consider this one on sale.
Pezza Dress in green ($128). I decided to try on the Pezza dress again, but this time in the green colorway and in a size medium. I prefer the size medium over the small. I had more room for "the girls", so they were happier. However, I prefer the blue color to this green. So, I've wishlisted this dress in blue in a size medium.
Lunar Cycles Top ($88). I thought I was really going to like this top, but oh, I was so wrong. First of all, the material feels awful. It is very abrasive and scratches at the skin. Next, it's completely see through, but nothing a cami couldn't solve. Lastly, the arms on this sucker were so big I felt like I could fly to the moon and see the lunar cycles up close and personal. LOL! Pass.
Springing Season Blouse ($68) and Pilcro High-Rise Flares($98). This keeps happening. I try on something for fun, thinking I'm not going to like it, and I end up loving it. Such was the case with this little blouse. I think it was the combination of this blouse with the jeans that did it. I LOVE THESE JEANS! So much! They are so 70's and so me! If I could wear these jeans everyday I would. Can you tell I love the jeans? LOL! The shirt with the jeans is just perfection to me. I feel like myself in this outfit. I didn't care if I had to sell my soul to the devil, there was no way I was leaving the store without these jeans. I brought this outfit back with me.
Carambola Peasant Top ($98). There's a fine line between flowy and circus tent. This top was verging on circus tent. This is a size small and there was a little too much material going on for my taste. It's a pretty print, though. Pass.
Nana's Doily Top ($128). Ok, if I had known the name of this top before I tried it on, I wouldn't have tried it on. That's gotta be the most awful name ever. I would never wear anything named in tribute to an old relative's doily. So not sexy! LOL! Anyway, this is a size 6, and I had too much room up top. Apparently, grandma is well endowed. LOL! I couldn't resist. Anyway, size down a size in this one. I think in the proper size it wouldn't be half bad, but I can't get past the name. Pass.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this second day of reviews. I'll be back with another round tomorrow. Have a great night!
