SO, we all know I love lace,Lace Dresses, lace skirts, lace tops, lace other things. I love the delicate stuff for skirts and such and the crochet lace too. So when Tosave reached out to have me check out their site and test their products I was all for it! I love finding new places to shop and share with my readers. So today on the blog is my review of the white lace cocktail dress and initial thoughts. I picked out this lace dress and a sheer black top with embroidered roses on it. On trend pieces. Shipping took a couple of weeks, not an issue. The site has a lot to choose from but there were sections that had nothing in it. At All. There were lots of things for the whole family though.And things were really nicely priced.
So the dress. Let me say, do not let the pictures fool you. Initially when I got the dress I was super excited! It looked OK. But then I tried it on. And that my friends is when I was like ummmm….Okaaaayyyyy. My inner Monologue started off. Lets talk about the length. It is very very short. The slip is see through, I am wearing a nude colored slip under it. Yeah. The dress lining is very very small and too short. I ordered a large or medium, as I was unsure of sizes. Here in US I am a XS to a S, but for some companies from over seas I order a size up or two sizes up. The chest is why too as well as for length. So this dress. was too big in the top and too small in the bottom. small length wise. So, sheer, small, short, and then lets talk the lace. It was unraveling at the bottom. Oh boy.
I know this doesn’t look so bad in the pictures, but again nude slip under and I am NOT lifting my arms at all. One time of picking up my little and the dress will go up and up and up.and in the words of George Takai “OOHHH Myyyyyyy”
Now I know what you are thinking. Surely there must be some good points?Well, yeah. There are some actually.Ready for that ? I do try to find the good and bad when I do reviews. Sometimes there is no good and sometimes no bad. This dress has both. The other piece I got from Tosave is a win win win. So that piece was a thing that will be not really anything negative for it.
I wanted to get the criticism out of the way and end on a good note. So the good. The dress is pretty darn cute.And the lace is really pretty. I do think it would be great as a beach cover up (for me at least now) and OR It can be worn as a top with some leather leggings. I can see that next. AS far wearing it alone in public, for me I don’t think so. As it is too short for me and with a little I would be in constant butt fear. If you are on the petite side and have a slip this would work, although the sizing is weird. IT has an elastic empire waist. And then there is the back of the dress which is really cute! This lace dress would have been good for a bride for a bridal shower.
It has a bit of tea lengthy things going on and it makes for beautiful pictures. The other fact of good is the fact that it is inexpensive. So you get what you pay for I guess. BUT, I have bought clothes for really cheap and it was not bad.(and I know I need to touch up my roots. I have had a sick little)
What do you think of the lace dress from Tosave? I know you are too busy right now looking at those killer shoes! 😉
