A Chic Wish Bird Print Skater Dress…on Cortneybre…

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.

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!

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.

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!

 

 

 

 

This chic gets her wish…from ChicWish

 I’m going to keep this post short and sweet.

This skirt was love at first sight.

Click here immediately to link to ChicWish and buy it.

You simply must buy this skirt.

It’s one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve bought….ever.

The fabric, cut, length and proportion are perfect.  

It’s also affordable!  SO much so that you should pick up a few

of the other beautiful skirts they feature.  

I have several on my list!  

 The skirt paired beautifully with this lovely Ted Baker for JCPenney cardigan and Kate Spade bag!  I’ve been asked about this cardigan several times and I admit..it’s my daughter’s.  I bought her the ENTIRE Baker by Ted Baker collection when it was featured.  Unfortunately, the dresses are a bit short on me as they’re girls sizes but the cardigan fit well over this skirt.

Here is a great alternative and also at JCPenney!  Click here!  This sweater would look divine belted and worn over this skirt or any midi skirt.  Check it out!

 A cuff of Kate Spade adds to the look!  All bracelets and watch are available at the Kate Spade outlet!

I finished the look with these T-strap heels by Adrienne Vittadini available here!

Hope you loved this look!  Have a great week!  xoxo…
