Reviews: Geometric Fields Dress

Another dress I had high hopes for was the Geometric Fields Dress ($498) from Plenty by Tracey Reese. The Soho Anthropologie had all sizes in stock earlier this week. So wonderful on the model I knew I was going to have a hard time with this one due to the square top. It was too pretty not to try on though.

The reviews on the product page are way harsh. And I have to agree. The plaid did not line up at the seams on the size 8 I tried. The underlayer is attached very cheaply and I struggled to get this on correctly. I was pretty shocked. You'd expect much better from a $500 dress.

I think my body posture pretty much says it all. Another short dress (I know, it's the style this season. Consider me officially grumped about it). Despite the different patterns there was no waist definition and the skirt said kind of limply in my opinion. The dress is sheer with a slip underlayer that is just meh. This is the complete opposite of the Bungalow Dress is terms of wantability.

Thanks for the review. I'm about to go to the store and try it on, I think this one is just better in the picture and on the model. I hate when it comes to pattern dress, it's hard to make the allignment right.

I picked up this dress over the weekend for $49.99! Most of my dresses are floral type prints, so it's nice to have a different type of print.
