Burnout velvet printed romper with a high neck. Open back detailing with a hidden zip closure. Flowy shorts give the illusion of a dress.
Stunning, rich looking dress!
Velvet has become my ultimate fabric fabric for the season and this dress is one of the reasons why! The fabric looks and feels very rick unlike many cheap velvet fabrics you see used. The print of the velvet adds to it's mystical, bohemian, even avant garde character. Reminds me of the velvet printed fabrics from the 80s and 90s that Betsey Johnson used in more of her eclectic pieces. Very hard to find. Sizing is very flexible as the fabric has a lot of give--although the waistband has limited stretch. I'm usually an ex-small, and small in free people and I found the size 8 fit perfectly--especially around the waist.
I'm not usually a fan of play suits but this one wa just so beautiful that I took the risk and got it shipped to the uk.... And I'm so glad I did! The fabric is amazing and the fit is a little big but looks fine still and actually I prefer having a bit more room (I may have ordered the wrong size as I'm not used to the US sizing system). Love love love it!
The print on this velvet romper is gorgeous and the open back with the high mandarin neck really give it a sweet, romantic touch. I also love the flare in the leg area. Perfect for the holidays really! The only thing I've noticed is that it's a bit too short on the torso. So if i raise my arms up to a certain point, the crotch up to the neck fabric starts to pull really awkwardly. (Not sure if I'm making sense) But it really is just too short... I'm 5'7 and usually wear a size S if that helps. So if you have a longish torso, I would suggest maybe sizing up? Or trying this in store to see for yourself.
Perfect for the holidays!!
I was hesitant about buying this, because I am not a big fan of mock turtle necks. However, This is a beautiful piece to wear for the holidays. It has a stretch to it, which makes it quite comfortable. It fits true to size and is very flattering for any body type. Another positive thing about this romper is that it can be dressed down with a jacket and layering. I am 5'2 and 110 pounds and bought an xs, which is my regular size. If you can find it.....buy it now.... .
