Follow Up on Guess Maxi and Zara Sale Items

Dress on the right: Image from Haute Look
Dress by Guess

Originally Price $178
Sale Price $79
Size XS

So I ordered this Guess dress on 6/24 from HauteLook and it arrived today. I been waiting for this & had envisioned this to be the perfect fitting dress. But I guess fantasy didn't turn reality. I was ready to shorten the dress a few inches, but I didn't think this was going to be my potato maxi sack.

The armholes, the waist, the hips & everywhere is just huge. The length is probably 5 inches longer than I want it to be. I feel like I can see the extra material for the armholes on the model, but she just tucked it into her underarms! I also noticed that the dress is not Guess, but its Guess by Marciano. There is a size difference between those 2. Marciano runs a lot bigger and longer in length for their clothing. I know this because I go into Marciano all the time and nothing ever fits as opposed to just regular Guess. I have a lot of items from Guess and most things are pretty true to size. I feel that HauteLook should have disclosed that information. If I knew that it was Guess by Maricano, I would have never ordered it. I told Sophia (kechicko) about this sale and told her that Guess runs pretty small. So sorry Sophia -- I didn't know it was Maricano stuff and I hope your stuff fits you.
Overall I am really disappointed by the dress and what sucks is that HauteLook only gives you a credit when you return their items. LAME!

Below are a couple of Zara items & they are on sale!

Maxi Dress in Size XS
Original Price: $59
Sale Price: $29
The length was perfect, but I was on the fence about this one. I asked my co-worker and Sophia about this & they were but ehh about it. The dress also makes me look pregnant so I decided to skip on this one.

Ruffle Tank in Size XS
Original Price: $39.99
Sale Price: $19.99
I actually bought this awhile ago, but just never had a chance to wear it. I saw it on sale for $19.99!! I'm irritated. I do like the tank & the fit. The fabric is really soft and I love the ruffles & also the fact that it doesn't make me look pregnant. I would have been a lot more happy with the tank if I got it for $19.99.


  1. I like the tank! Don't you hate it when something you haven't worn yet goes on sale?? I tried to take some Express shorts back for a price adjustment just yesterday!

  2. Aww that's so disappointing that the dress turned out so huge! Hopefully your credit can be used towards something more worthwhile :)

    I've never been to Zara and finally went to look up their store locations and it turns out there's one pretty close to me! I'll stop by the next time I go to that mall.

  3. Awww I'm so sorry it didn't fit properly! Yeah .. they definitely should have disclosed that information :( Hopefully you can return/get credit?

    That ruffle tank is super cute! I absolutely love it :D

  4. I love the guess maxi dress but unfortunately, it didn't fit you. Oh well, don't we all run into the same problem :) I wish there is a Zara store close to me but there isn't
    I am giving a beautiful necklace at

  5. That's unfortunate that it was huge! I suspected it was Marciano because of the price. I don't think I've ever seen a tank dress at Guess for anything close to that retail price.

    I also hate the return policy of Hautelook, hence I rarely buy from there! I finally used up a credit from over 1 year ago on some makeup.

  6. Aw man that sucks :( As much as I love online shopping, there is something to be said for going into a store and trying it on. Oh well, at least that material looks hemmable? Still haven't received my dress... keeping my fingers crossed..

  7. It's too bad that dress didn't fit and Hautelook only gives credit? Crazy!

    I haven't had much luck with Marciano or Guess. Perhaps I always pick the wrong styles, but unless the item is stretchy or super fitted, it tends to be a bit big.

  8. aw that sucks that dress is too long, i have that same problem! but that zara top is really cute! lol i doubt you could ever look pregnant though, you're so tiny! :)

  9. omg I love that zara top! I just went to zara on the weekend and all their sales stuff is all L or XL -_- lucky lucky you for these amazing finds!
