On to today's post...
Remember this little number on AlterationsNeeded? When Sweet Velvet Petites approached me about a review, I specifically asked to try on the Audrey Cocktail Dress. I recalled Kelly saying an XS fit her perfectly right off the rack! Being 5-10 lbs heavier than her, I was curious how it would fit on me and even contemplated sizing up.
Dress: Sweet Velvet Petites Audrey sz XS
Swing Jacket: Banana Republic sz 00 reg, altered
Shoes: Aldo Purse: LV Speedy 25
Continue reading for my review...
Quality: Kelly mentioned that the fabric was poly/rayon/spandex, which some people may not be satisfied with for a dress that is $119. Although I agree and would also like to see nicer material for that price, I have to say I was quite pleased with the feel of the fabric and the construction of the dress. The price is not bad for petites if no alterations are needed.
Material: 63% poly, 33% rayon, 4% spandex. Mesh is 90% nylon, 10% spandex. Dry Clean Only
Measurements: when lying flat, XS dress measures 14.5" across the underarms, 11.5" across the waist, 14.5" across the hips, 32.5" total length.
Kelly's post as her photos show the details a little better. I thought the front design was a little space-shipy, but I can see some ladies loving the unique structured top over the navy mesh.
This dress is on loan for review purposes and will be returned. Sweet Velvet gifted me the Grace pencil skirt, so keep an eye out for that review!
