Some Dressing Room Reviews During Sales



Since Bloomingdales is having a Friends and Family sale (use coupon GIFT or FFSAVE to get 20% off your order and click through ebates to get cash back!), I figured I would finally post some dressing room photos I took while in DC last month. First up is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Hana dress. I liked the easy drop waist shape and the saturated print. The quality was excellent. It is fully lined and substantial. And it ran true to size for Marc by Marc Jacobs. I took an 8 in this dress but it wasn't the most flattering shape on me.



Marc by Marc Jacobs Cotton Silk Ruffle Dress would make a great occasion piece for the holidays. I was floored by how flattering this ended up being on a curvier figure. On the hanger it looked like only a straighter shape would make sense. The velvet ribbon at the waist is a nice additional detail but the real star is the cascading ruffle that extends from the collar all the way down the side of the dress. I am wearing an 8 but if I were to buy this one I would size up to a 10.



Marc by Marc Jacobs Wool Felt Coat was stunning in person. The buttons and red trim juxtapose with the deep wool to evoke a military uniform from the 40s. The details reminded me of the best elements of vintage nurses capes reworked for a modern wardrobe.  The wool is incredibly thick and warm. This one ran a little small through the hips. I am wearing a medium and definitely would have needed the large.

I am sitting this sale out myself, but if these pieces hit the 70% off mark, I might rethink that stance. Are you buying anything for Friends and Family?

Jess, the 2nd dress is stunning! I like everything you tried on, but how perfect would that 2nd one be for the holiday?

I'm adding another vote for the second dress! And the military jacket is just beautiful. How lovely that it's also the perfect length on you. . .

I love all three items on you. I think the coat is probably my favorite...you could get so much use out of that. I'm not sure if I'll be participating in the F&F, but it's fun to go try things on.

Ah thank you all for the feedback. I am seriously considering the ruffle dress now. I love that coat but I need another coat like I need another dress. haha

Anon, the leifsdottir dress fit small and was kind of short. I will post it in a minute. Thank you for asking.
