Banet Dress Review and Tiled Amethyst Dress Review
I was drawn immediately to the classic, work-friendly shirt shape of the Banet Dress. It is by Maeve and sized in letters. The bodice is ruched and the hips are relatively free so the fit is very forgiving. I tried both a large and a medium and each worked but the buttons seemed more likely to gap on the medium. I'm wearing the large in the photo. The shoulders felt a little big in the large. I like both the colorways available and only wish this one was included in the tag sale (especially now that you can get an additional 40% off with code EXTRAEXTRA).
I also tried the Tiled Amethyst dress which is included in the sale) and found it to run a lot larger even though the dresses seem identical otherwise. I love prints and dresses in this shape, but I am still going to pass on the Tiled Amethyst version. I am not crazy about this particular print and the way it is placed on the dress. It's just as well because the size I need is sold out. Are you getting anything from the extra 40% off tag sale?
There are so many good sales at the moment. J. Crew Factory is offering free shipping and an extra 40% off sale items and 30% off regular items with code HELLO. I love the Intarsia Fox sweater, available for both women and girls (matchy match potential!). And for the little ones, Tea Collection is giving an extra 40% off their sale items with coupon code, EXTRA40. Happy Shopping!
