G.I.L.I. Sleeveless Dress with Faux Leather Trim Detail
I am new to GILI. I decided to purchase this dress even though it is now more expensive than the introductory price. The only color choice for my size is brown. After the fact, if I had the option to choose black or brown, I think that I would have chosen the brown. The dress is gorgeous and is extremely well made. In a very understated way, the lines of the dress accent my curves. I am in between sizes and I wear a small, 6 or 8 depending on the cut (Chico's ladies a .5 or 1). The size 8 is perfect for my bustline and not too baggy for my hips.
Flattering on certain body types, but not mine
First of all, this dress is beautiful, but it did not look good on me. While it is well-made, it is definitely for a thin gal (in my opinion). I am a size 14-16, and this dress was not flattering on me at all. It showed off every excess pound that I have, as well as my tummy. It is such a shame. My husband said the dress was so "me."
This is a beautiful, figure flattering, professional dress. It is truly stunning. Lisa, please bring this back in the black color so I can buy that one too!
This dress is stunning. Fits like a glove ,sexy, figure flattering ,and love love love it....
Don't hesitate about purchasing this item. I have received soooo
Many compliments when I wear this.
Bought this dress in the brown 1st, then came back for the black; because it fits so great and the seams compliment my curves (but I also have a little bit of a belly, but this dress hides it).
Would love this same design for the spring/summer in different colors and fabric.
I so wanted to love this dress but alas I could not get over the faux leather. The weight & quality of the material & lining are wonderful! But the faux leather takes away from its beauty (looks a little cheap IMHO). I agree with others that a grosgrain would work much better. I got the 8 and it fit well. Taking it in slightly at the waist would make it perfect. I am 5'4" & it hit just below the knees. Also I wasn't sure about the brown but it's a lovely textured material & the faux leather has more of a contrast than the online pictures show. Lisa please please please bring this back with grosgrain or another alternative to the faux leather. That would make it perrrrfect! Thanks!
bring back in smaller size
I ordered this dress in a size 8 and to my surprise it was too big.... I absolutely loved it and thought about keeping it but decided to send it back and get the size 6... Unfortunately, it has not come back in size 6 in black.... PLEASE get some of the smaller sizes back in... I would reorder this dress for sure.....
Do this one again!!!
Best fitting dress at an amazing price. Its a staple of my work wardrobe, with a black leather jacket or a wrap sweater. Lisa, do this one again in spring fabrics!!!
I was lucky to get this dress in my size -color brown. So appropriate for work and evening wear. Please bring back more in the black - smaller sizes. Lisa, thanks for sharing ideas from your personal collection!
Perfectly cute dress!
Bought the gray (tweed looking fabric) with black leather trim. Would easily go great with boots and jacket for Fall/early-late Winter, or with sandals in the Spring/early_late Summer! Classy, great business dress, lined, and can easily be personalized with accessories. I'm an imperfect 8, because of my broad shoulders and it fits great.
I love this dress. Size 6 fit me perfectly ... and I wear that size in most clothes. I am 5'5" and weigh 136. The dress is amazing. Lines are great! THANK YOU LISA!!!
First try with the G.I.L.I. line. This dress fits EXACTLY like the picture. I bought for a future occasion, but this is boardroom to evening. Just beautiful. Classic, but with a modern cut. I can see adding a white button down shirt and wearing as a jumper. It was a bit high, but I am glad I went for this as an investment .
