Spring has finally come in New England, and I cannot get enough of opened windows, long walks, and critter watching. Spring and fall are my favorites because of the ideal weather. Lucky for me, it comes twice a year and lasts longer than a week unlike Florida (my previous state).
I wanted to give an update on my Amazon purchases from an older post titled “Last Minute Dress Shopping – Amazon Prime to the Rescue!” I am 5’5”, 135 lbs, with an apple shaped body. I ordered a medium in all of the dresses.
On to my reviews…
The Fruit Dress
Would I buy this again: Absolutely! I’m planning to get a few more prints in the future.
This dress comes in solid colors and so many patterns. I thought for sure this dress would be my least favorite and it turned out to be one of favorites! The material is soft, stretchy (but not too stretchy), and minimal iron needed to wear. The dress is perfect for a modest Sunday dress. Since I went to a Christian college, this dress would have been perfect- high neck line, flowy, and the length hit right at my knee. I would highly recommend this dress for the price and look.
Southern Girl Easter Dress
Would I buy this again: Yes, but not for me. I would, this would look best on a pear shape body or you know the stick girls. 😊
To be honest, my husband loved this dress on me. The color, style, fit and feel were perfect – exactly as described. I would have liked this dress to be a tad longer for my taste. I would feel completely comfortable wearing this to a shower or an outside event, but not church with all the sitting and standing. All in all, my husband liked it on, but girl, if you don’t feel happy in it, get rid of it!
Long Sleeve Pocket Dress
Would I buy this again: No.
This dress is a good deal for the amount of pretty decent quality material it has. I honestly thought this dress would only look good on the super skinny girls, but I was drowning in it except for my upper body. The material on my arms was loose and the skirt part was wide because of the amount of material. The waist line hit me at an unflattering point too. Also, the pattern was “eh” in person. I felt that I looked like a pilgrim or a nun. I would not recommend this.
Maxi Short Sleeve Dress
Would I buy this again – No.
The fit wasn’t right, material was see through when stretched a bit on my body, and it looked cheap. Waist line was tight and hit weird again,and the upper part of the dress was tight for a medium. For the price you can probably find a decent dress at Marshall's that fits, feels, and looks much better on. I would NOT recommend this dress.
Poppy Long Sleeve Dress
Would I buy this again: Yes!
I actually wore this on Easter and received a ton of compliments. Needs lots of ironing first before wear though. 😊 This maxi is ideal for my body type - V neck line and slimming skirt. The material, fit, and look of the dress is good for the price. I would recommend!
P.S. Don't you love my youngest son's face for our family Easter pictures?!
Scallopped Halter Dress
Would I buy this again: Yes.
I loved this dress on and the price is pretty good for a last minute summer or spring dress! It was loose fitting so really wasn’t ideal for my body; therefore, I did return it but plan to purchase a size down next time. For the style, fit, and look of the dress in person, I would highly recommend this for a last minute shower or evening out!
Hope this helps for future Amazon dress purchases. Let me know if you bought any of these and your thoughts!
Happy Spring Ya’ll,
