As spring is ‘blooming’ or spring is ‘springing’, I decided to update my wardrobe with new darling dresses for this spring/summer season. My main inspiration, the cottagecore aesthetic + the feminine allure.
You will see me try on these dear picks in my ‘Spring Summer Dress Haul’ video, which I do urge you to watch if you would like more close-up detail of my dresses along with my colorful commentary of course ;)
Here are all the doll-approved dresses I’ve tried on, along with more feminine picks.
DRESS 1 & 2
This green and yellow dresses really exceeded my expectations. These dresses look AMAZING on.
In terms of pricing, they are more cost-effective.
Which I believe is fantastic, especially if you're newly interested in feminine, romantic dress styles.
It's lightweight, yet it's still good enough to wear more than once, if you know what I mean.
The green dress appears to be more opaque than the yellow. If this is a concern for you, I would suggest wearing a slip dress or special undergarments just in case.
Because neither of these dresses is see-through, I won't need to wear any special undergarments. Just something to think about.
I usually wear a size 8 in dresses, so I purchased the green dress in a large. As I mentioned in the video, the dress's silhouette is perfect for me.
The only complaint I have is the amount of coverage for the bust. I wear a 34DD, and the bust coverage is comparable to that of a bikini.
I went with the yellow dress in a size XL and the bust coverage is a little greater.
Overall, I had to restrain myself from purchasing a pink version of this style.
I can only resist for so long, so let's see if I can resist that impulse.
Romance Novel Dreams
I know some of you Dolls may have come to the realization that my obsession with this ‘romance novel’ dress is real.
SHOP Pink Midi Dress:
These En Saison dresses hold the title for the best quality out of this bunch. I remember first buying the long pink dress on sale at Saks.
After realizing it was fate for me to wear this dress, I went ahead and purchased the shorter white version on sale.
I purchased both outfits in a medium size. Because they have elastic waistbands, I recommend ordering one size lower.
SHOP White Mini Dress:
This last yellow dress is the ideal throw-on-and-go, feminine maxi dress. You can wear it anyplace and be perfectly fine. I "borrowed" this from my mother's wardrobe about a year ago and I'm so glad I have it.
Here are other styles that are comparable to the one I have:
