8/1– Dress still on promo for $88.
Size 4 – It looked loose, so I decided to try size 4 over my usual size 4. No pockets. Boo! If it had pockets, it would be nearly perfect. As-is, it’s pretty good. Can’t beat a 100% cotton lining these days. I like the navy.
Definitely size down.
It felt too long, so I positioned it to see how it would look shorter. Check out the neon coral on Ina.
Elastic at the back.
Simple styling with the Lillian metallic low wedges.
ETA: I bought the 4P in navy and it seemed to fit well. There was looseness still in the torso area, but it looked fine in the dark color. The first time I wore the dress I had on a lightweight cardigan. No issues. The second time I wore it, I didn’t have on a cardigan and the straps kept falling down, settling on my biceps. I had the dress on at home so I didn’t feel exposed, but it was pretty annoying. I still haven’t recvd my 2P in white, but I’m now wishing I’d ordered the navy in 2P. I will have to restitch the straps or have them professionally altered to fit better. I was tugging at the dress all day.
Size 2 – The size 4 felt big, so I decided to try the 2. It definitely fit just fine, so size down one or two sizes in this one. Note that I usually take size 6. It’s long and white has that borderline nightgown effect, so I would go for a 4P. It would look cute with a brown belt and green military style jacket. A look we’ve seen a number of times, but hey, it works.
ETA: I ended up with a 2P and wore it to the BlogHer14 Conference.
Note the windowpane pattern in the fabric. Nice.
