Review: Pinot in grey

What: Pinot embellished dress by Byron Lars for Anthropologie

When: Winter 2016

How (Material): Polyester everywhere! This is usually a big no in my book, but the dress is simply gorgeous.ebelandi_anthropologie_pinot_embellished_dress_1

Why (Pros):

  1. Look: The look is simple, a fitted dress with modest sleeves. But with Byron Lars, the secret is all in the details and oh my did they deliver on this one! Just take a look at my pictures below and judge for yourself. Looking forward to wearing this to a party!

  2. Comfort: Comfortable but very fitted. It reached right at my knees so I would say it falls right below knees on regular frames, as shown per the Anthropologie picture below.

  3. Quality: Great quality. Detailing work is outstanding!

  4. Sizing: True to size but you may want to size up for looser fit.  However, I have sized up for another dress (that I shall review next) and I’d recommend you stick with your regular size.

Why Not (Cons): The steep price tag, oh my! However, with the 30% promotion going on you may save $300 on the full price.ebelandi_anthropologie_pinot_embellished_dress_6 ebelandi_anthropologie_pinot_embellished_dress_7 ebelandi_anthropologie_pinot_embellished_dress_8 ebelandi_anthropologie_pinot_embellished_dress_9

Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper, if you can afford it! What do you say?

Review: Gilded Bryonia

WhatGilded Bryonia Sheath by Anthropologie

ebelandi_anthro_bryonia_sheath_1

Season: Spring 2015

Material: 100% cotton outer with glitter accents. Made in India.

Quality: Excellent…minus the annoying zipper that tends to pull on the back of the dress! You’ll have to be really careful zipping down your dress otherwise, great quality materials.

Fit: True to size but slightly tight on hip area if you are hourglass. I sized up for a loose fit at hip, but need to tailor the top as it is too big 😦

Sissi’s verdict: Keeper!!
