It appears as though I may have a Banana Republic sheath dress addiction. Just w/in the last few months, I have accumulated 4 BR dresses. I can't seem to resist! I tweeted about this dutch blue sheath dress but all the small sizes were of course GONE! It just happened that one late night while shopping online, a 00P popped back up! I about rolled off the bed with excitement. I quickly ordered it with the 30% off. My fingers were shaking while trying to type in my order because I was afraid it would be gone out of my cart which has happened to my countless times before.
Shoes: Ann Taylor Porcini Pumps- size 5 (similar here)
Necklace: BR factory necklace
SIZE/FIT: 00P- The reviews online were not so great regarding the sizing so I was a little worried. But luckily, the fit is quite decent. Not perfect but I do love how the top portion fits on me. The armholes aren't too big and it hugs me perfectly. The bottom portion is a bit big but you have to expect that with a tulip style. I don't mind it but it could definitely be more fitted. The best part is, the length needs no alterations! Woo hoo! Here are the measurements:
COLOR: One of the biggest reasons why I loved this dress so much was the gorgeous dutch blue color. I have nothing like it so I wanted to add this color to my dress collection. It's even prettier in person. I can see myself wearing it with tights and dark colors for winter and a light colored cardi and pumps for the Spring and Summer.
MATERIAL: This dress is 69% cotton, 26% nylon and 5% elastane. The material is made out of Italian fabric (love Italian fabric). I was a bit leery of the material because it was cotton but it's actually quite heavy which I was not expecting. The only downfall is it's unlined but the thickness of the material makes up for it. It's super comfortable which is always a plus. (the color below was due to the lighting)
PRICE: Full price was
$130 but now on sale for $110. Petite sizes seem to be out of stock but here is the tag in case anyone wants to call and check stores.
VERDICT: Good fit + no alterations + love the color= KEEPING! There's not much that would make me return this.
What are your thoughts on this dress? I would love some feedback. Sometimes I get over zealous when it comes to sheath dresses so please give me your input:)
