Vivenne Tam’s Cut Out Dress

i’ve been watching this dress since it came out, originally retailing at $400+ so you know i’m not going there. It’s been over 7 months, and i still check to see how low the price has gotten, but even on sale in neiman marcus, it’s still selling for $300.  i then saw it on ebay for less than $100, so after some consideration, i think i’m going to bid on it.  I saw it in person once and wanted to cry.  hahahah.  it’s silk chiffon, so you know that’s water on the skin.

it’s really beautiful, simple and feminine.  I only wished it was a size smaller since this dress drapes a little on me even though it’s a size 6.  On this model, it looks like a baby doll dress, but on me, it’s a full dress, coming down to my knees.  But I like it like that.  I feel like Meg Ryan in You’ve Got Mail, with her flowy skirts.  And since it’s a little loose on me, I would have to either pinch it in the side or belt it, which looks great!  The cutouts also make the dress unique, which is what I love, since I’m not a big fan of the tight spandex dresses from Joyce Leslie or the Juniors section of Macy’s.  If you’re in highschool, even college, ok…but after you turn a certain age, the junior’s section can be limiting.

Anyway, I really love the dress.  It doesn’t fit exactly as I wanted, but with a teeny bit of altering, I’m VERY pleased with my purchase.
