Click below to see my review.Here is my review on French Connection:
Price point: Higher than expected but I was hoping that the quality would match the price. Dresses run from $100+. Haven't checked out any other pieces or price points but I am asssuming it's in the higher end.
Quality: So far so good- I checked out the details of the stitching and quality of the fabric and it seems to be of high quality. I was relieved given the price point. You have to pay a premium for quality which I am more than happy to do as long as it fits and is made well.
Cut of Dress: Surprisingly petite friendly even though it's not a petite line. For someone similar measurements as me- a size 0 would fit perfectly. And I think even if you are a bit smaller than me- a size 0 would still work with maybe some small adjustments. The bust, waist and length all fit me properly with no adjustments. The only thing I would consider changing is MAYBE shortening the straps just so I don't show too much cleavage if I want to wear it to work but even at this current length- I think I can get away with it. Other than that- LOVE IT.
Sold at:Bloomindales, Nordstroms, Dillards and their own website (FrenchConnection.com). I am sure there are other stores online that carry this brand but those are the major stores.
VERDICT: I will be definitely looking into getting more dresses of this brand. I am hoping the fit of the 0's for all dresses are the same. I am curious to see what other items they have that I will like.
Back of DressI love this dress. The color combo is one of my favorites and it's very versatile. I can wear it to work and transform it for a night out. I'd have to be extra careful not to spill anything while eating (yikes).
Here are some other French Connection dresses in size 0 I am keeping my eyes on:
I just love love love the colors and the sleeves on this one, I am thinking of nabbing this one up before the 0 is gone.
I love bright colors for Spring and Summer and I think with a blazer or a cardigan, I could make this work in the business world. A boyfriend cardigan would be a nice cover-up for this strapless dress.
I love trying new brands and finding out that they are petite friendly. It can be so frustrating finding clothes that fit properly and we don't have too many too many options except for the usual: Ann Taylor, BR, Theory, H & M but I get so bored with the same stuff over and over again. I love finding out about other brands that are cut smaller.
Anyone else have a French Connection item?
