I’m so backed up on my blog posts! I have tons and tons of pictures and no time to post! This post has been burning in my brain since last week. I’d waited for weeks for this fantastic dress from Chic Wish and literally tore off the tags and wore it the next day.
Dress: Chic Wish Bag and Shoes: Kate Spade NY
Blouse: LOFT Sunglasses: Isaac Mizrahi
This dress is quite the statement piece and I was happy to dress it down (and warmer) with tights and a sweater blouse. Can’t wait until warmer weather also to wear it with a more springy ensemble!
As with my other Chic Wish purchases, the fabric is just fantastic! I love the sheen and weight of the dress.
Let me just say a teensy bit about these sunnies too! How fantastic are they!? I found these beauties at Nordstrom Rack and just can’t put them down. They are such a statement in themselves!
I hope you’re having a great week! Check me out on Instagram and Twitter also at @Cortneybreblog!
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
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.
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!
Skirt: Chic Wish Brooch: Hobby Lobby

Well..as the title states..this post is long overdue.
I love blogging, I love following other bloggers and I love my followers. Unfortunately, all of this blogging love doesn’t pay the bills or help my daughter learn Oh Captain, My Captain any quicker.
Between work, the Holidays, family and Thoreau, I’ve been pulled away from my sweet little niche I’ve carved out in this wide and wonderful internet world.
For those of you whom I usually follow, please know I’ve missed you all and I promise I’ll be back soon ..marveling at your talents and commenting on your fabulous posts. For those of you who follow me and wonder what quirky and crazy outfit I’ll come up with next, please be patient and know that I’ll be back working it soon…this crazy life of mine has to calm down!
That all leads to today’s post. This outfit just get’s me and I love it!
As in my last post, this skirt takes me away on a little journey and this time it’s to London…the skyline winking out at you as I walk by.
