Blue Rodarte dress

5.0 out of 5 stars
 
Apr 11, 2010   Rodarte dress review by

I really adore this dress. It's feminine, light and airy. It can either be a modern Alice in Wonderland or an updated version of Cinderella's dress. The dress is made with a combination of different fabrics: the top near the neck is a netting type of material, the bodice has a lace detailing on it and the skirt portion is a sheer, soft fabric dotted with small balls of soft thread.

The netting part of the dress is a little scratchy at first, but eventually goes away once you get accustomed to it (4 stars for comfort). The dress is also very delicate. I have to be very careful with the netting so as not to cause any rips or tears. The lace detailing on the bodice can catch on rings or bracelets as well and pull on the strings. Whenever I wear this dress I am usually careful (3 stars for durability).

The materials are very soft and comfortable, but as stated above the netting is rather itchy and very delicate. The back snap closure is also plastic, and a little cheap (4 stars for material quality).

The dress itself is sewn together very well, aside for one or two stray threads. Everything fits well and sits at the right places. Overall, I give this dress 5 stars. I always receive compliments whenever I wear it.

Rodarte's blue dress

I recently bought the light blue dress from Rodarte's line for Target, and I'm absolutely in LOVE with it! If you haven't seen it, it's light blue and looks sleeveless but the neck part of the dress is made of i think tulle. The top is a little itchy, but other than that it's a super comfortable dress. It does feel very delicate, though, I was so scared I would break it sitting down! The cut and style of the dress gives it an uber-vintagey feel, which I completely adore. However, this dress is kinda difficult if you've got something goin' on upstairs. A strapless bra is required for this dress since the sleeves are sheer, and I frankly have a hard time wearing one. But fear not if you're a C or D or DD and strapless bras don't cooperate with you, I wear a nude bra and a short cardigan. I highly recommend this dress.
