Well, I thought I had my wishlist set and had found the dresses I had to have, but then today I spot the lovely Kingston Road Dress in the store and adored it! Even though I was in a hurry, there was no way I could leave without trying it on. Here are all the pics:
Here’s the lowdown: I tried on my typical size 0 and the fit was great. No extra room anywhere in the waist/hip area but also not tight (so there’s room for an extra piece of pie/cake/cookie). The color is beautiful as sherbet hues are just my thing for the summer. The material is very soft, there’s lining, and it just feels really comfortable, especially when I think about the long summer days. There’s a zipper on the side and a tie on the back (but you already knew that). My only ONLY hesitation is the front because well, I’m not packing up top so there’s a bit of a gap there, but I think it can be easily fixed with a little bit of sewing. The one review online mentioned the same thing and she seemed to be packing more than yours truly, so perhaps it’s just the cut of the dress. And to be fair, the other hesitation is the hefty price tag. In general I don’t think any dress should have the number 2 in a 3-digit amount, so unless I can manage to stop shopping for 2 months, I can’t logically buy this dress at full-price now. Oh but I so want it, but am currently too pale for it. Perhaps it’s meant to be no? By the time it goes to sale I would have gotten a little color to complement the dress.
What do you think?
