dotty blossoms = super awesome

I am really digging some of Ann Taylor Loft's new spring-y frocks. The weather here has been all over the place, but it's getting warm enough for me to be thinking of spring time and sunshine and no more coats and whatnot.

One of the dresses I tried on was the Dotty Blossoms dress. See it on the model...

if only I were that leggy. sigh.

See it on me:

with a cardigan (of course)

I. Love. This. Dress. However, petite sizes for this particular dress are online only, so I could only try on the non-petite dress in the store. The dress didn't look bad on me because of the regular sizing, but the back bunched up a bit because it was cut for a longer torso. So short girls, keep this in mind! I ordered this online the moment I got home. You can use the SAVE20 code to save 20% off your order of $100 or more on the Loft website. I don't know when it expires.

The fit is TTS by Loft standards, since I usually take a size 2 regular (size 4 petites) there and this dress fit perfectly aside from the back-bunching (eww, that sounds gross). It's made out of a thicker cotton than the cotton dresses I'm used to, but it's not as stiff or hot or anything. And I don't know if the colors are showing up correctly on your monitors, but it's a deep navy blue and not black. Any other questions? Ask away either through email or in the comments - I'm not too good at this whole reviewing thing, ha!

I bought another ATL dress that day which I'm wearing tomorrow, so stay tuned!


  1. haha, "back bunching"! :)

    that's really pretty--and great with the minty cardigan too.

  2. love that dress! so pretty on you, esp with that cardigan

  3. lol @ "back bunching". Love the dress!

  4. So cute - I want, thought it's probably too short for me at 5'10" :(

  5. Oh wow! So cute! and you know if were J.Crew it would cost $189.50, so really, it's not a bad price! and with all their promos, it's definately something to keep an eye on!

  6. I love that you have moved on from the bedroom to the dressing room!

  7. I fell in love with this dress when I saw it in the store. I love the sash belt and the print and it is so nice to see a dress with sleeves for a change!

    Looks great on you (as does everything) can't wait to see all the ways you style it

  8. Thanks to seeing you in that dress and the coupon code - I too, have purchased the Dotty Blossoms dress (and some other stuff ... for the free shipping, of course).

    You look awesome in it!
