G.I.L.I. Knit Lace Fully Lined Sleeveless Pencil Dress
10 Star rating!!
What a gorgeous dress! Simple elegance! Lisa was right...do NOT size up. There is enough spandex in the fabric to figure flatter without being too tight. I love the length- just covers the knee so you can wear a litle higher heel if you want and it won't make the dress look too short. The fit is fabulous! Shoulders are cut in just the right amount to flatter your arms. Love everything about this dress. Basic, classic but the lace sets it apart from your basice LBD. Simply lovely!
Great for curvy girls!!!
Thanks for having Jackie wear this dress! She and I are about the same size, so when she models something and it looks good (which is often) then I know I can try it and know I will look just as good. That's just what happened. I love this dress.
Gorgeous & Classy Sexy!
All year, I have been waiting for the perfect lace dress. This was/is it! I read the reviews and was very unsure of what size to get as I am normally a 14/16 with a pear shape (smaller top; curvier bottom). I have been losing weight and toning, so I was really confused, so based on the reviews, I settled on the large. Well, wouldn't you know at the time, QVC only showed M, XL, 1X, & 2X. I took a chance and ordered the medium (I wanted this dress bad), and when I say it fits perfectly, I mean it fits perfectly!!! Many of the reviews talked about the arm holes being too wide. They were not at all. I love it!!! DID I SAY PERFECT FIT!!! :-)
One disclaimer--I ordered this maybe a month ago and paid full price. Needless to say I am upset that it is now almost $20 cheaper, but I will still keep it because now there is no medium.
So-o-o-o tired of the sizes 2-4 being sold out
PLEASE PLEASE reorder the smaller sizes 2-4 !!!! These sizes sell out so fast and they either don't get reordered or it takes forever to get them reordered. We smaller women have needs too!!! Please consider originally ordering more smaller sizes to begin with.
I usually wear a L but it isn't avail. After reading the reviews, I decided to order the M. Glad I did, it fits perfectly and is a very well made dress. I expect to get quite a bit of use out of this one. Belt is a nice touch.
Just received this dress. It does run a bit loose, but that being said, I LOVE this dress. I can take in the sides very easily. Very classic, will never go out of style & is so comfortable to wear.
Please make this in a Sand or champagne lace with nude lining. Perfect for spring/summer.
This is such a well made dress that I believe it is worth the price. After reading reviews as far as sizing, I went with my normal size and it fit fine. I don't get the negative reviews at all but if you are wondering what size to order (like I was) just stay true to your QVC size unless you want it skin tight! Mine isn't skin tight on me but it isn't too big either. It has just enough wearing ease, does not look frumpy at all, and it is comfortable! I wanted the whole look of the presentation so I also ordered the Lee Sands clutch in cream. I had to get the exact pearl necklace elsewhere and since I am not going to wear it belted I used the belt that came with the dress and made a ribbon for the necklace which came out beautifully. So then I needed a black fur wrap right? Got a Dennis Basso one which was on clearance! I am going on a cruise in 4 days and I am bringing this outfit with me! I am so excited I can't wait! I'm going to look like a million bucks!
Breakfast at Tiffany's
I received this dress to wear to a rehearsal dinner late in October. Since I am self conscience of my upper arms I paired it with a black cardigan and my jewelry choice was pearls. Very comfortable. Fits true to size.
RUNS VERY LARGE.....
I love this dress and own it in XXS. Unfortunately it runs so large....I meab it swallows me whole! I lie it and will keep it. But I can;t figure out what to do with it in order to make it wearable. I am worried my taylor won;pt beable to take it in and still keep the style of the dress. It is so large everywhere, and I am not petite. Please revise this true to size. In dept store sizing I am a size 2, except in a dress I am a 4 or 6. In QVC sizing I am a XXS , but in dresses I am usually XS since my chest is a 36 C. The model in the photo os thinner than I am and she pulled this dress off beautifully. I loved this dress so much on air (LRS) that I even bought the KJL pearls which were not available on QVC.com any longer when I went to order. I had to pay a fortune elsehwere to get the pearls that Lisa showed in "THE LOOK" with this dress. I have to keep it belted, since without the pretty velvet tie, the dress makes me look like I have no shape..so I keep it belted. I bought extra velvet ribbon so I coul ddo what was done with the KJL pearls Michelle had worn that night. I loved the look of boght models in the dress (Michelles and Jackie). I hope I coul dfind someone to make this dress look okay on me. I ti shoneslty 3 sizes too large. Oh well. I have seen it elsewhere for double and tiplke the price. I may wind up spending more than the cost of the dress to pay for tayloring it. Pleae make GILI sizing more true to size. SOme tiems run large and some run very snall. BUT HANDS DOWN IT IS MY FAVORITE LINE ON QVC. (I ALSO LOVE MARK ZUNINOS' LINE!) I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE SORING WHEN THE LRS RETURNS! MY HUSBAND DOESN'T SICNE I LITERALLY BUY EVERYTHING OFFERED! THANKS FOR BRINGING US GILI, LISA!!! AND THANKS TO QVC!!
RUNS VERY LARGE /WIDE
I WAS SO IN LOVE WITH THIS DRESS WHEN IT AIRED. Lisa said, "do not size up," which I took as "size down," and I did. According to my measurements for the garment, I should be an x-small or even small. PS-The XXS is enormous on me. I am 5'7", 124lbs, bust 36C. I wish it was more fittted. Lisa said it was supposed to be fitted. It is also very long on me which I hope a taylor can fix the laceat the bottom is so exqusitely done that I want it to look like that after it is shortened. I like my dresses to be at the knee, not below my knee since I feel like it shortens me (and I have long legs..but they seem to be "cut off" with this particluar longer length). I have tried it on for family/friends who say...."that dress is much too long, wide and big onyou everywhere, but it is anice dress." I haven't given up sincee I still need t take it to the taylor. I have been nervous to go since were times where he will say..."this is an enormous job and we will have to reconstruct the entire dress." That is not what I want to hear for this beautiful dress. I have seen very similar versions of this dress for double the price and triple the price im Manhattan. I wish this fit me. It looked phenomenal on Michelle (model in photo) who is more slender than I, so why is it so humungous on me?IT IS A BEAUTIFUL DRESS AND IF YOU CAN SIZE SOWN, THEN I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO BUY! I wish I could size down by 2 more sizes, in fact (and I have XXS). I will see if the taylor ASAP! My husband loves it even though it swallows me...he wilbe disappointed if I were to return : ) Hope this helps anyone who is on the fence with sizing....size down 1-2 sizes. :)
I am a size 2-4 and the xxs fits perfect. This dress is so beautiful. It is sophisticated and sexy. The quality is superb and right on trend. I prefer it without the belt. I highly recommend.
A very pretty dress of soft feminine lace. But, it runs too large especially under the arms. If it were more costly I might get it altered, but putting half the price again into tailoring doesn't make sense to me. Order down a a size and you will be happier. Pity as the dress is nice fabric and I loved the longer length. I will try again!!!!
