church and state dix dress
my church and state dix dress arrived this morning, and i'm in love! i ordered it from frances may, which is fast becoming one of my favorite shops. i used a style bite coupon for 15% off and ordered it in a size 6. in terms of fit, it really doesn't accommodate larger bust sizes. i'm a 34B right now, and there's a tiny bit of wiggle room, so probably a full B would be ok, but nothing larger.
i can't find any more 6s online, but here are the measurements for reference:
empire waist--16 1/2"
length--40" (just below the knee)
apparently the 4 is 32" in the chest, but i think if i weren't nursing, i could fit into it. my only complaint about the dress is that it doesn't have pockets, but that's only because i love having pockets in all my dresses! i think it will be so perfect with a long-sleeve tee in the fall, too. it's definitely one of those workhorse dresses that can be dressed up. the intricately pieced bodice and brass buttons, plus the loose and swingy waist, definitely makes this one of my favorite dresses.
Frances May, $320 plus 15% discount "xostylebite" (sizes 2, 4)
Le Train Bleu, $352 plus 30% discount "mayday" until May 5 (sizes 2,4)
Sotto Boutique might be getting a few Dix dresses in navy and stripes, so it might be worth contacting jocelyn.
well crap, now i feel stupid. there's a new coupon for 25% off at frances may (FMCANDY).
