Here's a close-up of the dress so you can see the details and ruffles. I just love it! You can definitely still wear it w/lout a belt but I needed to break up the color and add some dimension. Not sure if you can tell but this belt is really big on me (I prefer the XS AT skinny belts but I had to settle for the small). I need to punch an extra hole or two so I am waiting to get my belt hole puncher. Because the belt is too big, it doesn't sit where I wanted it to. I tried it outside of the cardi but that didn't work either because it's still too loose and slips up and down. Hopefully once I punch a hole or two, it will look much better!
This purse is very versatile because you can dress it up by hiding the strap inside and carrying it like a clutch.
Measures: 9 x 5 x 2
Here is the interior of the purse.The color looks much lighter in the pics but it is a true beige and super pretty. I decided to go with lambskin but you have to be extra careful because it's much more delicate than calf-skin or caviar leather. I figured since I already have caviar and calf skin on my other two Chanel's, I had to have lambskin this time around:)
The only complaint I have about this BR dress is that it's VERY low cut. I have to wear a navy blue cami underneath when I wear it to work. But I can probably get away with it if I go out to dinner or on a date with hubby:) It's not a perfect fit (a bit wide in waist and hips) but the length is perfect and I don't think I need alterations. So for $40 for a cute dress, not bad right?
Here it is w/the strap wrapped around once so you can carry it on your arm.
I love it but know I will have to be extra careful with it. But I guess that's just the price I have to pay:)
I am sure you all have heard but Ann Taylor is having a shoe sale, $50 off plus free shipping and stackable with code EBATES30. If you sign up for MrRebates HERE, you get 3% more off and we each get $5 instantly! I placed my order for these saddle brown pumps to replace my Aldo saddle brown's which are way too big for me. I was going to get my lizard pumps in pumice stone (been waiting forever) but Jean said they run bigger so I'll pass for now:(
Do you like my new Chanel?
