Hi! I am super excited about this week’s Fresh Cuts, and I think you will be too!
Tropica Jacquard Mini-Dress is so sweet. The beautiful fabric (cotton) has a liner which is always a plus. This dress also comes with straps if you want the extra support, or prefer that look. It’s down from $198.00 to $99.95, and still has all sizes available in regular AND petite. Here’s what people are saying about it:
1.Beautiful Print, BAAAAAD dress
I love the print, but the fabric is thick and stiff like a canvas tote, not like a party dress! The bow on the front made my chest look crooked., and if you look carefully it is supposed to lay sideways. This isn’t very pretty in my opinion. It is well made, and the length isn’t too short. I also had some bunching at the waist from the zipper. Too bad!
2.Vaca Super Dress,
I was so excited to try this dress on, but alas. The size six fit at the waist but the top was a mess – the bust is cut very small. The size eight was too big at the waist but fit at the bust. I’m a C cup, fyi. The other thing is that the bow on the top is asymmetrical and it as well as the pleating in the front stick out very awkwardly. The fabric is beautiful though. I think this would look great on someone with a straighter torso and smaller bust. Definitely try before you buy.
Verdict: It is really hard to get a a handle on what’s wrong with this dress because people are contradicting eachother, however, I think that it is safe to say that the color is lovely, but the cut of the dress works best for people who have a moderately size chest, and nicely rounded hips (but not too rounded!).
Isn’t she pretty? The Vicia Wrap Dress is darling and I want to wake up tomorrow and see it in my closet. I love a good wrap dress; and this one is down from $288.00 to $149.95. Here’s what people are saying:
1. Gorgeous Dress
I bought this dress in a size 0 and it fits TTS. I am 5’3″ and 102 pounds. The colors are vivid and the craftsmanship of this dress is exquisite. It hits a little above my knee and drapes beautifully. It is extremely flattering, and although it does fall open a bit when sitting down, the gorgeous purple slip underneath is all that is seen and doesn’t look strange at all. I wore this with some brown boots and got a ton of compliments. Just lovely…
2. Almost perfect
I’m not quite sure how to get around this problem. If it’s not an issue for you, I say go ahead and buy it, since it is really beautiful. Maybe other people will have better luck. However, for nearly $300 you might want something that is more exacting in its fit and construction. If I hadn’t received this for Christmas, I’d have to ask myself if the discomfort of struggling with the dress whenever I’m sitting down is annoying enough for me to return it.
Verdict: The dress is beautifully made but you either need to be mindful of the gaping, or go to tailor and sort the problem out.
I love these kinds of shirts You know, the loose fitting flowy type? I have a buh-jillion in my closet. The Gauzy Gale Peasant top is no exception to my love of these shirts, down from$118.00 to $59.95, this looks like a winner to me. Here’s what people are saying:
1. Pretty but a little short
I took my usual XS and while the sleeves were a tad snug the blouse was still too “tenty” for me. It’s also very see through so whatever you wear on the bottom will show unless it’s the same color as the blouse.
Adorable dress, but the triangle top didn’t work for me at all. I tried a Size 2 which fit perfectly in the waist and hips, but the bust was too tight and cut too low to be flattering.
Did I mention the dress has pockets? Awesome.
very true to size, fabric is just slightly thinner than i expected. but fits very well on the shoulders and under the arms. perfect length, very zooey deschanel feel. can wear with layers and tights during the winter and booties or as a summer dress!
