So if you've read my review on Grana's silk V-neck tank, you know I'm a huge huuuuuge fan of their new georgette satin. So it's no surprise that I'm also a ginormous fan of their V-neck slip dress. And in fact I like the slip dress more just because it's an easy and super comfortable outfit in just one piece. Add a cashmere sweater to this and you're ready for fall!
First off, I ordered this in a size small and it was the perfect size (I'm about a size 4). I think my only negative about this dress would be the length. It's a bit long for my 5'4" frame but it does look about right as a midi-length dress on me. And I don't mind the extra length so much because there are some sexy slits on the sides that hit at just the right spot (about middle/upper-thigh). If the slit was any higher it might be too scandalous for everyday wear. But as it is, it's the perfect amount of modesty and feminine sexiness.
I think my favorite thing about this dress is that the upper portion is just right for me. I don't have any issues with the straps falling down (in fact I was moving Airstreams in the dress--ie hard manual labor-- and didn't have any trouble with the straps). So this dress is perfect for us small-bust gals, but if you're on the larger side you might find it a bit tight on top and might need to go a size up. The top portion is also double layered silk so it smooths any bumps you might get from an ill-fitting strapless bra.
I loved it so much I bought two, one navy and one black. I had just gotten the black when Stephanie from @ifonlyihadsomewhere asked about it on intagram so I posted some pics on my insta story with it styled in that 90's look going around on the blogosphere. All I need is a black velvet chocker and some round sunnies, lol. (And yes, my mirror is propped up on a mattress. A bit ghetto but storage for an extra mattress for an Airstream is hard to find so behind the mirror it goes!).
So if you're looking for a high-quality silk dress that's super affordable ($80 for a silk dress!), then this might be the one for you. I'm so in love with this I'm contemplating getting one more, buuut I need to slow my roll on these things. How many silk dresses does one girl need?
