Red Fluted Cap Sleeve Dress

To be honest, this dress photographs better than it looks in real life. When my bf saw it, he said it's too long and boring. I have to agree with him, but I do like the color and fit of the top. I was surprised at the small arm holes and that the bust area fits pretty perfect. Another negative are the ties around the waist. I wanted to take it off and use my own belt, but those ties are sewn into the dress (from what I can remember). I thought a thicker different color belt would be better to break up the dress a bit and make it more interesting. I'd also like the dress to be a couple of inches shorter so it will hit above the knees.

Ann Taylor Fluted Cap Sleeve Dress. Size 00P. I bought the dress with a 40% discount so it comes out to be about $58. I think it's still a little expensive for something that feels like a thick cotton dress. I might reconsider rebuying if it went down to $25ish. Haha! But considering they are selling out of sizes online, I really doubt AT will discount the dress that much more. So in the end and after not much consideration, I decided to return the dress.

  3. The dress is a pretty color on you. I tried on the dress in store. Not only is the dress a bit long, it also reveal every bumps and curves.

    1. yeah i think it's due to the fact that the dress is so light weight and thin. i feel if the material was thicker and had more substance, i think it will be less revealing in the aspect you're talking about.

  5. I also agree - the top / bust area fits beautifully but it is too long and the waist ties aren't doing it for me. Fingers crossed that it will hit major sale because the color is so stunning and it looks gorgeous on you!
