Buy & Try: Nordstrom (Round I)

Thursday, January 10, 2013


Well, folks, as it sometimes happens Round I was not a success. By any definition. I'm sure on another skin tone or smaller woman these dresses could look fantastic but on me? Not so much. Here's the proof*...

1) Too tight across the chest, the neckline/ruffles are too high
2) Cute in person, but horrible and boxy in photos. Plus the skirt doesn't have enough volume to balance the top half.
3) The best of the bunch but too much is exposed of the top half in this size. I may try sizing up (to a 16) in the future if I really decide to give this a chance.

1) Whoa - wide. This dress was not flattering at all though I guess I don't have to worry about any tummy issues.
2) I felt super broad and 'bleh' in this dress. No.

**Don't worry, I'm going to stop with the hallway pics. Not only is the lighting a b*tch but it's hard to get the right angle.

Now I can hear you, you're saying what about the lace dress right? Well the lace dress came a day later than this order and let me tell you - it's a maybe. It's a big enough maybe that I've ordered a similar dress that's half the price to see exactly how attached I am to it. Wish me luck!
