I have reviewed the Foulard print capris HERE, but on my last visit to the store I was able to try on the maxi dress and few other items.
Maxi silk dress in Foulard print
I never thought this dress would work for me. Most maxi dresses are 'too granola' and 'too boho' for my style, but I actually liked it a lot.
I am 5'6 and the length is perfect on me. I think if you are shorter than 5'4, it may be too short without hemming. One nice detail about this dress is that the straps would work with regular bra. I don't have a picture of a back view, but the straps are attached with buttons and there is 3 or 4 sets of button holes for a custom fit. It was displayed crisscrossed in the back and this is how I have put it on, but I think you can also button them straight.

|Good length, size 6|
|the waistband is elasticized|
|with (wrong) shoes on|
|it works nicely with a cardigan|
|$198, 100% silk, lining 100% polyester|
Jules dress in silk stripe
OK, so this is another variation of the dress that comes Fanfare, Ashbury and other prints.
I like the Fanfare version better, I am really starting to get sick of all the stripes and I never thought I would say that but yes, this is getting a little redundant.
|two words: TOO. SHORT.|

Unidentified a-line sleeveless knit dress
Now, to make things a little different we have... Surprise! Another striped dress! I got tired just looking at it. Sorry! I tried it on briefly and it was a disaster. Too high waisted
PLEASE READ UPDATE BELOW
|Size small was too small on the top.|
|$88, 70% cotton, 30% rayon|
That's all for today folks!
I have reviews of few other items including red No. 2 pencil skirt in ultra eyelet and matching Ultra eyelet shell and Back-zip long-sleeve pullover coming. I also just received Drawstring mini and Cotton V-neck sweater that just went on sale. Stay tuned!
Do you like any of the dresses I reviewed?
I saw there are few new arrivals on line and one of them is an Attaché dress in linen-canvas
I have previously posted this picture of it:

In case you are interested in it, I think the fit was a little tight in it, especially in the chest. It falls to the knee. I was trying size 6 which is a size in my summer cotton Attache dress ( that is even a bit loose) and I think I should have sized up to 8 which seems to be my size in dresses this year. The oceanfront color is TDF!!!
Another new arrival is Big-shot dot dress which I reviewed HERE.
Also, No. 2 pencil skirt in feather paisley, reviewed HERE.
Oh, and the striped knit dress above is apparently Villa dress in stripe. Now I know that I was very tired because I thought the buttons were in the back. No wonder I thought it was skimpy in the chest, lol.
Sorry, if I confused anybody!
I am now totally confused because, as simplydreaming poited out the description does say 'buttoned back'.
And when I think about it this is how it was displayed in store, with buttons in the back! OK, so there is a hope for me, I am not just loosing it completely :)
