LOFT dress review!

I was so excited to get my new LOFT dress in the mail today! It took longer than I expected to arrive (2 weeks), but that's most likely because I've been spoiled by Zappos' super-speedy shipping.

Dress: LOFT, Petite Knit Dress with Ruffle Trim, PXXS
Shoes: Jack Rogers, sz 5
Belt, Necklace: Boutiques in NYC that I don't remember...

Remember when I tried on the size PXS dress in-store, and didn't like the fit?



Honestly, the fit of my PXXS isn't that much different- maybe a few inches shorter. It just needed a belt, because without it, it's shapeless and hangs in an unflattering way:



Not only do I LOVE the color of this dress (#1 reason why I bought it, I love coral!), but it's sooo comfortable and easy. Also, it's a great way to show off turquoise accessories!



I chose this thin wire necklace with suspended turquoise pieces rather than one of my bulkier necklaces, since I wore the dress with a thick belt.

I do think the dress is somewhat overpriced considering its simplicity (it's one layer of cotton), but I got it for 40% off. Plus, the fabric is super soft and well made, so no complaints there!

The weather here in New York has been lovely, perfect for wearing dresses like this one. I spent the weekend at my friend's party and it was a TON of fun! Live music in the sunshine all day- I danced my heart out. :)

Hope it's sunny and beautiful where you are too,

Yay! Glad you found a dress you like! Coral and turqouise are so pretty together! And coral looks great with your skin tone!

Glad you had a fun weekend! Weather here is getting into the nineties...will be in the triples soon. Eek!

Oh that's a gorgeous colour! But I agree, definitely needs to be belted or something else to accentuate the waist. Coral and turquoise are the perfect match!
