William Riera and Renee

Sunday, March 14, 2010
William Riera sent me this gorgeous Renee dress (and two others) to review. This is my absolute favorite from his site. I love the pleated details in the sleeves and at the waist. And the fabric is nice and stretchy!

I actually had the pleasure of meeting William a few weeks ago. He offered to custom fit all three dresses for me!!!! They now fit like a dream. I am not a fan of empire waist dresses because they make me feel like I'm pregnant but his dresses make me feel like a goddess with the subtle shirring and the jersey knit fabric. Just be careful of the sizing - I am almost always a size small but when I tried it on, it was too big for me so I wear an extra small in his dresses.

They are also sponsoring a giveaway on my blog in a couple weeks so be on the look out for that! They will be giving away a dress of the reader's choice and size!! But in the mean time you can check out their page and use the code CLOTHEDMUCH at check-out for 15% off if you need it now!

  3. The dark blue of the dress is very pretty-- I'm also a fan of the pleating, but it would've been nice to see the front of the dress better! But I do like the boxy silhouette look you're rocking here. :)

  19. You look classic and fabulous - what a great dress. Jersey dresses are also really comfortable and it's nice to see an option that isn't skin-tight.

  21. you look good with the dress...at first I thought the heels are nude...but it's gold my bad...

    ReplyDelete
  57. i lovelovelove the way you used the jacket over it to keep it from looking too maternity-ish. wish i'd thought of that in my post partum phase with some of my maternity clothes haha. could've saved me a few of those "are you having another baby?" comments.

    also, the color looks great on you!

    ReplyDelete
  58. another thing - i am loving your hair lately! is it naturally wavy like that or do you have to help it along? the sideswept look is so fresh on you!

    ReplyDelete
