Dress of the Day: Richard Chai Curve Seam Silk Dress

Purple_dress_2

At first we thought the ruffles (there’s that dreaded word!) on this Richard Chai dress were a little too much, but the more we look at it, the more we like it. It has a bit of a fairytale quality to it, and while it’ll never be the kind of dress you’ll get a lot of wear out of (kind of a deal-breaker for us given that it costs $2,695), if you have a very special occasion in mind, this could just be the very special dress to wear for it.

Get it at Saks Fifth Avenue .

    wow – if that was a little bit longer (and a LOT cheaper) I’d love it!

    Hm…it’s just a fit issue, I guess…but the arm holes are bugging me. If the dress fit like a glove, it’s be beautiful AND i could get a better sense of exactly what the designer was going for…as it is…I dunno. I do like the ruffle back though. No question about that. And the color.

    Not usually keen on ruffles myself, but I do like this one. I love the colour and the seams at the front, it all seems very flattering.

    I am also bothered by the fit of the armholes. However, other than that, it certainly is a very striking dress.

    I love the back and the vibrant colour, but what’s with the neckline/bust area? And I echo the sentiments regarding the arm holes. It looks as though it would be horribly unflattering on anyone larger than an A cup.

    beautiful,
    but im guessing only certain people with catwalk model figures would be able to pull this one off?
