Remember this dress from my May Preview Post?
|Java tunic dress|
My PS has emailed me on Friday that the dress already arrived in store, so of course I had to go to check it out.
I like the print placement on this dress, with vertical strip of print not running full width of the dress, which creates a slimming effect. The dress fits TTS to slightly bigger. I tried size 8 first, which has been my size in most dresses this year, but it was a little shapeless and the size 6 was a better fit for me. The neckline opening is not revealing, at least not on me. Sleeves are past the elbows, unfortunately I don't have a picture with sleeves unrolled, but they widen a little at the cuff.

Overall, I like the dress a lot and I brought it home. I don't have anything similar and I think it would be nice for vacations, weekend wear and going out. If I decide to keep it, I may bring it to the store to have the hem let out. I was told it will ship in the mid Jun on pre-orders.
Another dress I noticed on the hanger, was this little striped number. I know we are all striped out at this point, but this one at least is in different colors.
|cute colors but thin and flimsy|
The dress is rather flimsy, thin and rather shapeless, it looks more like a nightgown to me, but the colors are cute and flattering. The length is good for this type of dress.
|for half the price, I will consider it as a nightgown|
If you don't have any bulges to hide, it may be a cute easy weekend dress, although overpriced for the quality it represents, I would not expect it to last through too many washes before it develops holes.
|$68, 100% cotton|
I also tried Soludos espadrilles and I wanted to warn you about them.

Too bad, because I was actually considering them.
On another note, you might have noticed that I have cut my hair and changed the color. I am very happy with change, I think I prefer my hair shorter and darker, it seems to feel more 'me'.
That's all folks !!!
Do you any of the dresses?
If I keep the Java dress, should I let the hem out or is it OK as it is?
Should I keep it at all?
Would you consider purchasing any of the dresses?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
