Knit dress with movement and shape
Love this dress! It's a knit dress and hugs any curves you have without feeling like a corset. If you have been working at the gym and want to show some shape in the fall months then this dress can command justice. Great color combination. Too bad the red and black version is not available. Nevertheless the dress is a major hit. All the major fashion websites have been quick to sell out the Griffin and very few restock if at all. Get it while it's in stock because waiting for it to go on sale won't be a possibility for this fall.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Another LBD but why not
First off the material is a great cotton that feels great on the skin. James Perse does it again with great fabric! Yes it's another LBD but one that gets great CPW (cost per wear) is going to be priceless. It works just about everywhere because I can wear with heels to amp up the look or with Converse sneakers to play it down. That means there are plenty of occasions to get good use of it. Plus it's so soft that I can throw it in my suitcase for a jaunt. Lastly the details are great! There is ruching on the side and an asymmetric neckline to bare some shoulder. Love the details! Beware though that it's 2-ply fabric so beware if you tend to heat up.

Stunning mass that can be weighty
The pyrite stone is entangled in a web of brassy metal that certainly is eye-catching. There is nothing delicate about this look and presents something that is hard, tough and powerful. That means behind such a style there is weight. Although I love the look of the design I must say I have to take it off to give my finger a break. It is heavy and not noticeable if I'm out and about but on a keyboard--the weight is quite apparent. And yes the sizing is off. I got a 7 and it feels like a 6. Five stars for the great design and style and minus one star because I have to take it off at work when I need to jam out on the keyboard.

Summer print that moves
Floral prints abound the runways for this spring/summer but what truly makes the dress is not simply the fabric choice, cut or color. The genius of this dress is that the bluebirds flutter when a breeze whips the hem or ruffles into play. Exaggeration, yes, but nevertheless the dress does move wonderfully. There are button enclosures to ensure that the dress doesn't fly above your rear or fall open at the bustline. The asymmetrical is flattering and the draping is fluid as the fabric swoops around the hip and to the back without adding bulk especially if you are not too curvy. The orange lining provides enough concealment. Thus transparency is not an issue. Size 2 fits a US 4/6. Heard it sold out within two weeks of its debut at stores in Australia. Lucky stateside got its hands on some inventory.

Unique detailing but not worth $$$
The blouse is true to size and true to its images. It's a matter of pulling off the look. Since there is quite a bit of attention drawn to the neckline it's best suited for someone with narrow shoulders. It'd hang better on a person who is somewhat flat-chested so that the fabric doesn't pull in funny ways. I'd keep it if the item was discounted significantly. At retail or even 50 percent off I just didn't find it a must-keep in my closet.

Decorative lingerie with edge
Year of Dragon reigns in Asian themed designs for Marlies Dekkers' Spring Collection. I am a fan of the dragon embellishments that match perfectly with the bra. It has a basic fit but with an edge that is both elegant and powerful. Great addition to a lingerie collection!

Yr of the Dragon Bra
Marlies Dekkers rings in the new year with an Asian inspired theme for her collection. Marking the Year of the Dragon, she anchors her bra straps with silver dragons--four of them. Although four is not an auspicious number in the Chinese culture, they still breathe a fiery bling to a standard white bra. I wear it to be shown under sheer clothing which is a rising trend for this spring/summer. The back design and silhouette of the dragons definitely standout under any sheer clothing and make great lines from the back view. No regrets here and Marlies Dekkers again releases another keepsake bra that both functions in support and style!

Another black dress
This dress had been on my wishlist and so when it went on sale I basically got the green light to purchase. The dress does look as pictured but perhaps it just didn't sit well on me. I opted for the small (34C, 5'5", Size 4/6) which fit perfectly but that zipper on the side was brutal. I had to yank and yank. It seemed like a chore. Once on I can't say I was terribly wowed. Yes I do like the leather detail and contrast but it wasn't enough to make it memorable. It's a nice black dress option but I'm not sure it's a must-have. Since I am spring cleaning I had to return this dress. I need memorable or classic pieces and not forgettable ones. Another point to note--the hem did not sit above the knee like it is shown on the model. Be aware of your height if you want that look.

Edgy bikini with great fit!
LOVE this bikini. The top fits perfectly for me (34c) when I slid on the medium size. It does not squeeze any back flesh and instead lies smoothly around my bust. The bottom is equally fitting. There is support without being clingy. Hence no unnecessary squishing of body flesh to make any unsighly rolls or ripples. The back harness is the clincher. I love surprise details and contrast in styles. The front looks classic and simple but the back showcases a caged effect that makes a very strong look. Black is classic. However the other colors are tempting.

Great warm maxi with optional hoodie
This knit dress is a warm option for winter dressing. The hoodie traps any warmth that may escape and it drapes nicely over the shoulders if you want to remove it. Great weekend dress and you don't look like Ewok or a nun when donning this simple dress.
