Tory Burch: Printed Cotton T-Shirt Dress, Pleated Silk Shirtdress

Tory Burch has come out with a Limited Edition Collection to celebrate the opening of her Paris boutique called The Paris Collection. To launch it, Dianna Agron directed a short Film called L’Américaine (it’s on the front page of the collection). It’s just adorable and the clothes are so beautiful. You must check out the whole collection. Feathers, silk, embellishment; it’s all so gorgeous.

On to the current Fall Collection though. This dress caught my eye when I was walking through Nordstrom during the Anniversary sale. I didn’t have a chance to try it on at that time so I was excited when I saw it at the Tory Burch boutique.It’s in the Lisbon print which she has out for the Fall Collection. I like this print and the colors that are used with it. The Medium on the dress fit just exactly. I wouldn’t size to a Large though as I want it to be fitted. It’s 100% Cotton but doesn’t feel like a normal tee. It feels thicker. I’m thinking I can transition this dress well into November, in my climate, by adding a chunky cardigan and boots.


The length hits me just above the knee. The print is all-over, including the back.

~ Pleated Silk Shirtdress, Ballet Blue Crystal, size 8 ~
This dress reminds me so much of my beloved Cora Shirtdresses from last year. The hemline is a little different; a little bouncier, which is a nice touch. I saw this print online when the new arrivals came out and new I needed to see it in person. I found this in two prints in-store so I tried them both on, in different sizes. This one is the size 8, which I tried on first. I liked the fit though I though it was a little on the long side in length, for me at least. The shoulders and arms were loose but you can tell the fit is a little on the big side.
The blue is really pretty and it almost looks like some purple is mixed in.

Of course, I didn’t realize the size 8 was too big until I tried on this print in the size 6. This is a much much better fit all over. The shoulders and arms are still fitting well and the hemline has come up a little. And I like this print even more. The pleating is around the neckline and down the button placket, almost like a tuxedo-style.

Flouncy bouncy hem…

There’s one more print that’s not on the Tory Burch website.
I’m excited about these dresses but I think I will be waiting to see if any of these make it to sale before buying. I already have two Cora dresses that I love and Pleated Silk Shirtdress seems a little more “dressy” to me. I think it’s the print. I’ll probably get the Printed Cotton T-Shirt Dress first. It won’t break my heart if I don’t get the other dress.
I hope everyone has a nice long holiday weekend!

    I really like that printed tee dress on you and those feather shoes are pretty fab too!

    I was looking at the printed tee dress too last weekend but my store only had large sizes left so I couldn't try it on. I agree with you that it's going to transition well (wear it now with sandals and later with boots/booties and a chunky cardi or a jacket). I reserve judgement until I try it because the fit could potentially be a bit plain but this is one of my favorite Fall items so far.
