Talbot’s one-shoulder matte jersey dress comes in black or cassis, a wine color. It runs regular XS – XL and PXS – PXL.
Size PP – This past June, I partnered with Talbot’s for a giveaway as seen in this post. I was allowed to select an item of my choice from the website. My original choice was the cotton sateen jacket in awning pink, but due to some confusion & staff vacations, I never received the jacket. By the time we got things straightened out, my size wasn’t available, so I made a new pick. Things happen for a reason. What’s funny is, I asked for a PS, and they sent a PP to me. I don’t know if they got it wrong or know that the dress runs a little big. I tried on some things yesterday at Talbot’s and they seem to have adjusted the sizing a bit. I think I’m going to be a PXS in many things. Last year I was a PS.
As I said, things happen for a reason. The fit is good. I’m so happy w/this dress! I took it with me on a shopping trip to make sure to get good photographs to share. I also received Talbot’s basket-link bracelet as a bonus for the mix-up with the jacket & winner’s gift card. I thought I took pics of the bracelet, but I don’t see them. The bracelet is more matte than I expected, but I like it. Nice weight, not too heavy. The weight of the dress is is also nice and not too heavy. It’s like the material is doubled, as opposed to being lined. There is ruching at the left shoulder and then at the right waist. There will be a little bit of wrinkling, but it will be a combination of the fabric and the cut of the dress. I will probably try some Spanx type undies with it to pull the stomach in. I meant to bring black heels w/me to share the full effect, but you get the idea. I highly recommend trying this dress if you need a LBD and have considered a one-shoulder.
Thank you, Talbots!
Classic pavé link bracelet (2012 style #48738, $135) – I love this bracelet. When I saw it, I was going to think on it and see if they had it online. When I got home, I didn’t see it so I’m glad I got it that, day in-store. I think the style # is 14842. It rings up as the pave cable link bracelet. The receipt SKU is 090102114842.

* BCBGeneration – I like the way this one drapes in the front.
* Bebe – I’m not familiar w/the 2be like from Bebe. It could be reeeeally tight, like Kardashian tight. Only $34.95 though.
* Josh Brody – Short sleeve. This is sooooo hot in orange.
