A while back I saw on an IFB board a posting of an online boutique, Ruched Boutique, looking for bloggers to purchase their clothes at a discounted price and review the products. I looked at the clothing and found a lot of items I really liked! So I decided on these two and this is my review.
Chiffon Dot Dress

I love this dress! The waistline is a little high on me, but I have a long torso (and I'm 5'6 for reference). There were two pieces of the chiffon on the sides to tie in the back, like a belt, but I cut them off because of the higher waistline. The dress is a touch on the short side (probably because my legs are 4399484573 miles long), so I have to wear leggings/opaque tights under it, but that's no problem to me. It's a issue I run into a lot. Overall, I have no complaints. It's a flowy dress, without being too crazy. My only recommendation would be to purchase a size up if you're curvy. There's not a whole lot of stretch.

I'm actually wearing this dress backwards! As you can see in the second picture, the back is longer than the front. But because it's on backwards, the real front is actually longer than the back. When I put it on, I thought it looked weird with this hemline. Truthfully, I'm not a fan. I prefer the hemline to be longer in the back or just even throughout. Aside from that, it's a great dress. I love the paisley print and the colors work perfectly together! It's a stretchy dress and really comfortable.
Overall Shopping Experience
Jen, the owner, is great! I emailed her asking about purchasing the items and she got back to me right away the next day. The items were shipped next day and arrived in less than a week (I'm sure that had partially to do with her being in Illinois and me being in Wisconsin). They were individually wrapped in tissue paper and arrived in perfect condition. Jen is a great communicator, businesswoman, and buyer. I highly recommend Ruched Boutique to all!
