Ok, so this post has been way overdue, but in my defense, last week was a very busy one! I tried on these dresses at Flare’s 30th anniversary party that was held at BCBG on Bloor St. West in Toronto. The one above was by far my favorite, mostly because of the fit – like it was made for me! I also loved the flowered strap…although le boyfriend would probably call it a snake, or whatever else he’d come up with (he called a shoulder bow from a French Connection dress a parrot!).
The fit of the maxi dress below is also quite nice, but the color is too muted, no? It has that slightly dirty-ish look to me. I guess I’m a fan of defined colors: true blue, red, purple, but not dirty blue, or washed out red. You understand, right? But otherwise, it would’ve been a perfect dress for Jen’s wedding in January. If only it came in a brighter color!
The last dress, especially from the front, is not very evening-appropriate, but the back is so cool (excuse the bikini line), that I had to try it on! The lovely sales lady also picked out the shiny belt for the dress, which I must admit, really did make the dress look better! In the end, I didn’t buy any of them, first of all because I still have plenty of time (couple of months), and second, I must really love the dress in order to spend $500 on one, and unfortunately, as cute as these dresses were, they weren’t “it”. I did, however, buy a dress in Buffalo last weekend. And I think it might just be “the one”! Stay tuned!
