I tried on several dresses over two fitting room visits to Ann Taylor. Currently, the have a 40% off promo with code WEEKEND.

~ Sleeveless Shirtdress, Navy, size 8 ~

I love the cut and style of shirt dresses. I try to stick with sleeveless styles as the ones with sleeves are usually a little snug in the arms for me. The size 8 was perfect on me. The pleats on the skirt don’t create a whole amount of fullness. The pockets are hidden in the mix of the pleats. This also comes in Hot Tropical Coral. I saw that color in store as well and though it would go well with my skin tone, I will stick with the Navy. There’s also a Denim Shirtdress that has a pencil skirt bottom. I know I’d need an 8 or Petite 10 in that as it looks very lean and small in the arms.



~ Striped Double V Sheath Dress, Small –

This is a fitted knit dress fit well in the Small. I don’t mind the length going past the knee but would like to try the Petite Medium to see if the length will hit me closer to the knee. There are vertical stripes on the side, breaking up the front horizontal stripes, and, in my opinion, create some shape. This was another of my favorites that I tried and made me long for Spring to come quickly. I can see wearing this with flat sandals or heeled espadrilles.



~ Spacedye Flare Dress, Small ~

I wasn’t too sure about this dress on the hanger. I kind of liked the spacedye pattern but didn’t know how it would look when I tried it on. I’m still on the fence with the dress since the pattern is horizontal on top and vertical on the skirt. The Small of this fitted dress fit fine though I think I would prefer the Medium a little more. The length is just below the knee for me so a Medium would be a little longer. There’s also a midi skirt in the same pattern.  I think, even on sale, this dress is a pass for me.



~ Tweed Shift Dress, size 6 ~

This dress is currently on sale and you can take an additional 60% off, not 40%. I liked this dress and the fit of the 6 was good, especially through the hips. I like the color mix of the tweed and it’s not very thick. If I worked in an office this would definitely be in constant rotation since it would be so easy to just add a Navy Blazer. It also has a matching tweed jacket.



Code WEEKEND will get you 40% off regular-priced items and 60% off sale. There are several types of dresses on sale, plus the 60% off, to choose from.

Are you shopping any dresses during the Ann Taylor WEEKEND promo?

A few Factory dresses for you this evening. All dresses were 20% off on 9/4.

~ Tipped Ponte Dress, Red Currant, size 6 ~
I loved this dress. If I had opportunities to wear it more I would have bought it. The size 6 fit surprisingly well. I’d Spanx it to make sure I got the best shape at the belly and hips area. The Navy dress is also very saturated. I love working-from-home but simple dresses like this make me consider making the hour drive in. 
~ Chambray Shirtdress, size 6 ~
The actual body of the dress fit just fine but those arms and shoulders were tight. I had to wiggle my way out. If you don’t have that problem area, like I do, get your true size in this dress. The chambray has a soft feel to it and it’s comfortable on. The length, if you can’t tell, hit me just above the knee. I’m 5’2″.
~ Tweed Chevron Stripe Dress, size 8, #A8989 ~
This is not online but This was with the suiting section which I believe was 20% off. I wasn’t able to zip this all the way up. It will fit it does, it’s just that extra seaming at the waist that always gives me trouble on any dress I try. This is a very nice wear-to-work dress. The bottom portion is a pencil shape and well below the knees. 
Here’s a pic of the tag so you can see the tweed material up-close.

Have a Great Evening!
