Gigi recently reviewed some cute Old Navy eyelet dresses here, and during the 30% off Give & Get last week, I decided to try one of them out, the Shiffli Shift Dress, in both blue and white. I love the Land's End Canvas eyelet shift, but it's too pricey for my budget right now. I'm set with white dresses, but wanted to check it out at least. Based on some reviews that said the length was much better on a small vs. XS, I went with the small.
First, I love the french blue color! A very pretty periwinkle, a touch brighter (in a good way) IRL. It's definitely short, but man, it's cute. For popping over a swimsuit and heading to the pool, or a backyard grill-out, perfect! I'm sure the XS would have fit a bit closer to the body, but I definitely couldn't go shorter than this. I feel like the quality was quite nice on this, especially for ON.
Here it is in the white. Attached slip underneath = not see-through! I tried it belted and didn't love it that way.
Since I was already ordering, I added in this bright white embellished tank top, because the colors in the embellishment looked very pretty -- pinks and yellows and melons. Reading reviews, they said it was running smaller than past years, so I ordered a medium. Fits perfectly, so I'm glad I sized up. The beading is sewn on quite poorly, so there's a good chance of them popping off. Might be worth a little tightening up if you know how (or have a tailor that could do it on the cheap). Perfect match to JC's sunshine peony skirt from last year.
And, you know, I had to try one other one item out, the watercolor cami (called Tiered Top, except there aren't really tiers, odd). It looked really pretty online, but got some terrible reviews. Eh, whatever, I wanted to try it out anyway. IMO, it's really pretty and vibrant in person. Many reviewers said it was a huge tent, but I didn't find it to be so. I got an XS and since I knew it to be an empire, expected the flowiness. I didn't think it was overly so.
Did you pick up/receive anything from the recent sale?
