As soon as I posted about the Kiyonna Tamara Twist Dress, I went on and ordered it. I wore it today:
Kiyonna Tamara Twist Dress in Sugared Maple, Size 3 (22/24)
Shoes, old from Torrid
Too much blush, me
I love it. So comfortable and effortless, and it hangs well. I heard a couple people say that the bust was too large, but for me personally, it was fine. When I first put it on, thought it might be too large on top, but I re-adjusted the gathers and it was perfect. I could see where if you’re smaller busted it might be a concern. One thing I didn’t expect was that the skirt portion is double layered. It has a great weight and hangs beautifully with the extra weight. Really want to try this with cognac knee high riding boots, which I’m frantically on the hunt for.
Speaking of boots, I was sad to order and then have to return these boots:
Legroom Double Buckle High Leg Boots, $89, SimplyBe
These were too tight in the calf, which made me pretty bummed because I liked them and they were super comfortable in the foot. I would say if you’ve got a calf of 17 inch or smaller, these would work. I could zip them, but it was like sausage casing. Blech.
I wanted to also let you know about a giveaway I’ve got going on at Skinny Emmie: a Taffy Activewear double layer tank and yoga pant – complete workout outfit!
