Tory Burch: Ryder Dress, Palais Dress, Musee Dress, Julia Dress, Sardy Dress

There are some great dresses at Tory Burch this season though the Cora Dress will always be my favorite. I liked all but one of what I tried on. 

~ Palais Dress, Small ~
~ Gemini Link Printed Patent Loafers, size 7 ~

This dress is made of merino wool with a fit-and-flare style and cable-knit design. I found the Small to fit just a little snug but due to the style I wouldn’t size up. The length hits be just below the knee. It’s really cute and I think it would be a great work dress. There’s a matching cardigan as well. 


~ Musee Dress, Medium ~

This is made of a silk jersey, which I love but fit really small. This dress isn’t made for curves. I am not even sure if the Large would fit well. The belt doesn’t help to create any shape either. The length hits above the knee and the dress is a pullover-style. The geometric design is cute but there’s too much that’s wrong with this dress to buy it, even on sale. 


~ Julia Dress,  size 8 ~
~ Gemini Link Printed Patent Loafers, size 7 ~

Here’s another silk jersey dress that fits much better in a numbered size. I love the pattern and perfect Fall colors on it. The belt matches the dress and has a d-ring closure. I think this dress would be better suited with a different belt since the current one isn’t very structured. The length is actually good on me and what I would consider midi, for my height. There are side slits at the hem allowing some movement in the skirt. I can see wearing a good chunky sweater over this for Fall. This dress is also on sale. 



~ Sardy Dress, Medium (also blue) ~

This sporty little dress is made of Merino Wool. It slips over the head without having to un-do any buttons at the shoulder. The mock neck isn’t tight and always something I look for in turtleneck-style items. The medium was a great fit too. This was a dress I really liked and will try to get it on sale in the Navy which has a green racing stripe. If you prefer, there is a sweater



~ Ryder Dress, size 8 ~
~ Gemini Link Printed Patent Loafers, size 7 ~

This dress was my favorite of everything I tried on. It is 100% silk twill and has an elastic waist. I’m a sucker for Tory’s silk dresses, especially if they are a shirt-dress style. I easily came up with three different ways to style this dress. I also love how the dress looks with the Tortoise Loafers



I ended up purchasing the Ryder Dress, Gemini Link Printed Patent Loafers and the Blossom T-Strap Flat. I think it will be a unique little black flat to wear this Fall. I have some outfit ideas for the Ryder Dress that I’ll be sharing with you soon!
