Tory Burch Talia Poplin Shirtdress

Ladies, you know when you find that one item, be it a dress, skirt, hat, shoes, something, and know in an instant, without trying it on, that you love it. Then comes the dreadful part where you have to try it on, praying and hoping it fits, looks good on you, or flatters you because you really love said item.

This happened to me a Nordstrom last week. I was “making a return” of some slips that did not work out and took a glance at the Kate and Tory items. I saw the Talia Poplin Shirtdress and knew in that instant that I loved it. Then I saw the sleeves and they looked a little tight. But I grabbed a size 8 and, optimistically, went off to the fitting room.

I’m Cinderella and this dress is my glass slipper. The Talia Shirtdress was a perfect fit. Especially in the shoulders and arms. I can move and breath and am comfortable in it. 
I originally pinned this dress from the Tory Burch Fashion Week images so it has been in my head for a little while.
The back is just as pretty and detailed as the front. 

The colors and details of this dress are beautiful. They blend so well together. It’s cotton with a little spandex and lined in Cotton, which is so perfect for Summer.

This little detail is at the bottom of the dress. This image is true to the colors on the dress. I love how vibrant they are.

I didn’t buy this immediately but left it on hold to think about it. I wanted to see if something else caught my eye but the dress and I were meant to be as I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

And a shout-out to Wendy because as soon as I saw this dress it reminded me of her backyard and garden (scroll down). Wendy, has Tory been to your house? Maybe she saw your post and was inspired!

I cannot wait to wear Wendy’s Garden Dress! I have it on in the first pic with the Martina Metallic Wedges but will probably wear them in the Summer with the Lillian Mirror Metallic Low Wedge Sandal. I also have these little pretties coming to me. Look for a Shoes-day post next week on them.

Have a Great Day!

    I am loving Wendy's Garden Dress! This is gorgeous and perfect on you. Tory Burch does a summer dress like no one else. I have a large collection from last year and I can't wait to wear them again, beautiful cottons and linings and prints. Ticking every box!
    I'll have to look at the site so I can have a dress from this years collection, it looks amazing.
    The print on this is really exquisite.

      Julie – I usually have an issue with shirt-dresses so I was surprised this one fit so well. You should at least try it on, if not for fun!

    Gorgeous! Reminds me of the J.Crew Versailles shift dress.

    Oh wow! I just saw this – how did I miss it as I love TB and this dress and this post! You are right! It is my garden!!!! I need one of these pieces! When I was in Florida, none of these were out yet or I would have nabbed one! You look smashing in this – so pretty! And thanks for the kind shout out to my garden that is trapped under 5 feet of snow still, fast asleep!
