Tibi Chantilly Dress Review
Oh how I loved this Tibi Chantilly dress when I first saw it on Shopbop! I waited patiently for a sale and eventually it was marked 70% off during Saks.com's Thanksgiving promotion. I hoped it would be true to size for Tibi but noticed the narrow hips so I ordered one size up. This was a mistake. I should have grabbed a dress that was two sizes up because the hips run very narrow. But the top kind of runs on the bigger side of true. The dilemma meant that despite the great price, I've already returned it without bothering to locate an exchange. The dress is lined and a cotton silk blend which is substantially stiffer than my 100% silk Tibi's. Although I adore the print, I am just not built for this kind of shape. The shot of the back is especially lumpy. Oh well!
