Cortneybre…in Countryside Chic Wish…

I really do try to not check out the Chic Wish website.  I seriously need to save some of my pay check for the future.  What can I say, I’m an addict!  I just LOVE their clothes.  Their fabrics, cuts and unique pieces are just…me. 

Dress: Chic Wish Belt: Gap Bag: Kate Spade Boots: Nine West

Dress: Chic Wish
Belt: Gap
Bag: Kate Spade
Boots: Nine West

Today’s dress from Chic Wish took quite a while to make it to me from across the sea.  I was very eager for it to arrive and I wasn’t disappointed! 

I love to buy pieces that are unique and this dress definitely fits into that category.  Notice the beautiful and quaint English countryside scene on the skirt?  The extra detailing at the nape of the neck?  The dress is made of a beautiful (and warm) brocade fabric which is nice during this time of year.  

Today I paired it with boots by Nine West, my beautiful tobacco brown Kate Spade bag and a woven leather belt by Gap.

 

Measuring Up

Fit: Chic Wish runs small.  I typically wear a small in the US and needed a large in this dress.  I find their clothes run one size smaller in the waist however, if you’re busty or have curves you might want to order two sizes up.

Fabric: Beautiful print and brocade but very rigid.  The fabric does not stretch at all so as I said before, you will need to order up if you’re in doubt of your size.

Length: Perfect!  I am 5’ 6” and I thought the length was spot on.  I loved the flare of the skirt.

Price Point:  What I REALLY love about Chic Wish is their affordability!  This dress is on sale for $49.90.  You can’t beat it!

Overall impression:  Totally love it!  I had several people – including men which was a little odd – ask where I bought the dress.  I do think that even the men, really wanted to know!  Some of my friends were disappointed that this was the largest size in this dress.  I also ordered another Chic Wish dress and can’t wait to receive it!

I Got It!! The Ooh La La Large Bella Pouch by Kate Spade!

Ooh la la!  I just couldn’t resist this Kate Spade large pouch when I saw it pictured on their website.  It’s large enough for all the essentials – lipstick, credit cards and keys and totally Parisian chic!

Xoxo…Cortneybre…

I Got It! Peter Pilotto for Target Blouse

Today I’m wearing my weekend purchase from Target. It’s a blouse from the Peter Pilotto for Target line. The blouse is beautiful and comfortable.  I love that I can dress it up with a skirt or down with jeans or pants.

For more information on the Peter Pilotto for Target line see my earlier post – “What Do You Think? Peter Pilotto for Target – a review…”.  Have a great Monday!  Cortneybre
