So, I’ve been wanting a denim/chambray dress forEVER. I’ve been coveting the Rachel Roy light wash tencel denim dress all season, but at $115 it was not for me.
Last week Old Navy dot com was having a sale and their very VERY light wash denim tencel chambray dress was marked down so I finally just ordered that cuz I knew I was never going to spend over $100 on a denim (or any, really) dress. Matter settled.
Til I was at TheCurvyCon this weekend and who had a pop-up shop there? Rachel Roy! And what dress did they have there? The much longed-for denim dress! And was it $115? No, it was marked down to $30!!! I tried on two sizes and quickly plunked down some plastic and grabbed that baby right up.
It wasn’t til I was driving home later that afternoon that I remembered the Old Navy dress. Ooh.
The ON dress arrived today. Now I love them BOTH. They both have good and bad points. They’re both right about the same amount of money. I could send one back…or I could keep them both. Today I’m showing you the RR dress, and tomorrow, the ON. Maybe you can help push me off the fence cuz I’m walking right on down the line with this one.
Pros for the RR dress.
- It’s a modern sihouette
- It has pockets (!) though they’re a little awkwardly low. Or maybe it’s just my short arms
- The fabric is very comfortable
Cons for this dress
- The v-neck is a little low for comfort…and I didn’t even DO The Sitting Test, when all v-necks go EVEN lower. It’ll be cleavage for days at my desk at work
- It’s got that too-big armhole thing going on
