*I should mention that this post was sponsored (yay for my second free shipment from Grana), but I originally had purchased a black version of this myself already. But it was very nice of them to let me try the blue version for free.
Hi guys, it's been awhile since my last Grana review but if you've been following my Instagram you know that's pretty much all I've been wearing everyday (mostly those silk ankle pants). It's a bit early to be wearing this dress (the temps here have been in the 50s and 60s) but I just can't wait for spring and I really love the color of this dress (so spring like!).
So for those who've read my other Grana silk reviews, you know I love love love Grana's items made from their 22mm Georgette satin (over their 14mm crepe de chine). And so of course I love this dress as well. As usual with their 22mm satin the material is super smooth, thick, and feels durable.
I'm a huge fan of Grana's regular v-neck slip dress (review here) but I always thought that midi length was just a bit too long for my short-ish frame. So I was really excited when they came out with this mini version. And boy, I was not let down.
Just like their regular version, this mini version is made from double layers of their georgette satin so no VPL here. But I should note that for me anyway, the double layer ends right before the start of the side slit on the leg so the inner silk layer ends right at my butt (which isn't a bad thing, but sometimes you can see where that inner layer ends. Also I have to be careful when bending over). And for a mini dress the slit doesn't go up too high, which I prefer.
As for sizing, I'm usually between a small and a medium in Grana, but went with the small here since from past experience the chest area of the silk slip dresses tended to run large. It fit fine except was a tiny bit snug in the butt area (but that's my fault not the dresses, lol).
Anyways since it's a bit too cold still to wear the dress as is, I tried some outfit variations below. What do you think of the light blue and rust orange? I kind of like the combo!
