Tory Burch: Katy Dress & Rayna Dress

Finishing out my visit to Tory Burch, I tried on two dresses, one of which is now on sale and the other is the perfect Holiday/Special Occasion/Party Dress for me.

~ Katy Dress, size 6 ~
This is a classic silk Georgette shirt-dress updated in pink dots. The length hits me just below the knee for a lovely modest look and perfect for a more professional workplace. Alas, the size 6 was too snug in the bodice though the hips in the skirt were perfect. You can see slight pulling across the chest. I would need a size 8 for the best fit. There are buttons down the front but also a side zipper making it easy to get into. 

The blush pink contrasts nicely against the black background. I would add a little merino or cashmere cardigan for work or church.

~ Rayna Dress, size 8 ~
This dress is a wool silk blend and very fitted. I’m struggling a little in the size 8. I tried on the size 10 (forgot to take pics) and it was a much better fit. The painted blue irises on this fit-and-flare skirt are so pretty IRL. 
This dress is the perfect party dress for me this season. I already have plans to wear it to a Holiday party, New Year’s Eve and a family wedding next October. Now, I just have to buy it. I’m hoping for a promo of some kind like last year on Black Friday weekend. 

I don’t think this dress needs any jewelry but if I did it would be a collar necklace like this one from Nordstrom or a simple strand of pearls like this one from Target.

The print on this dress is peppered throughout the Holiday Collection. 

Have you thought about your party dress or outfit for this season?

    I love the 1st dress! I think if you get a minimizer bra or some type of Spanx-y thing, it will work. I wouldn't size up.

    I agree with Gigi, the first dress looks really great, are you sure you need a bigger size?
