Colorburst

Wearing Francesca's Collections Dress -SM, Guess Peep Toe Pump-6

I'm always hunting for a fun print dress since my wardrobe still somewhat lacking in that department. During my lunch break I went on a little hunting expedition and found this dress at Francesca's Collections. The print and color caught my interest. The print gave me the impression that I was looking at a multicolored fireworks display. I really liked the burst of colors on the dress. The dress is 100% polyester and has a matching sash. It was a little big on me but, like always, this was the last dress available, and the store had a 14 day refund policy, so I took it home to to think about it.

The sleeves are a bit long and the fabric bunches in the back when the dress is tied with the sash. 

The dress is shapeless without the sash.

Readers what do you think? Should I keep or return the dress?

  1. I love the print of the dress but not a fan of the sleeves on it. You could probably disguise with a blazer unless you can hack them off somehow. I bet a shorter sleeve would be easy to DIY if you're handy with a needle and thread or sewing machine.

    2. I was going to ask about comfort! I bought ONE pair of Guess heels a very long time ago and they were the last pair I ever bought because they were so hard an comfortable.

  3. This is a tough one...it's an interesting print and I think you can definitely pull it off. But if I were the one making the decision I probably would lean toward return because the shape of the dress isn't as flattering as it can be.

    On the other hand, I love your shoes!!! :)

  8. I really like this dress Ying! I think you should keep it! You'll be able to wear it for many different occasions and with just the change of shoes and accessories you'll put it to good use I am sure. This reminds me of the pink and orange scarf print dress I bought at H&M over the wknd :)

  15. Your shoes are so beautiful. Love them so much.

    Did you decide keep or not? I love that print, and think you look ok (but little big) on you from the front, but not sure about what you should do with them actually. If i were you, I would return (ok, depending on the price, possible) or always wear it with cardigan or something.

  17. The print is lovely, and I love the fireworks reference, but the dress can be more flattering if it had smaller prints. I can see that you're pretty slender, but the dress is so not doing anything for your great figure, so I'd return it if it were me );

  18. I like it a lot, Ying! I think you should keep it, even if it isn't perfect. The lovely print makes up for any faults, and I think it looks cute with the sash tied. I also think it would be cute with a wider leather belt.

  19. Awesome print, I love it on you, you should totally keep it!

  20. I actually really love the print, the only thing is that even though it's a sm, it look quite big on you. Maybe try it with a different belt ;/
