hello! i wanted to share a fitting review of the dive right in dress from modcloth. now don't fret, i did not purchase this during my 30x30 spending hiatus - but it did arrive this week. :)
of course, i love a good bird print dress and this one is no exception. cute, cute, cute.
i also liked it because it had sleeves. i wouldn't need a cardigan to wear to work. i was hoping it wouldn't be too short, but it is (for work at least and in general if i wanted to wear without pants or leggings). i am only 5'4, so i couldn't imagine this one someone taller. it would be a shirt, not a dress.
for being $90, i was concerned that the fabric would be flimsy - but it was thicker than expected. overall nice quality, but not sure if it worth $90 considering the length and how often i could wear it because of that factor.
based on the online recommendation, i sized down to a medium (i usually order a large in "forever21" teen type dresses). the sizing recommendation online seems right and the medium fit.
overall verdict - it's totally cute, but going back based on length and price. if i could wear it to work (i.e. maybe a little above the knee) i would keep it, but i think this one is even too short to have a slip help.
until next time,
