Kelly by Clinton Kelly Floral Print Wrap Dress w/Slip
Not for petite
This is a beautiful dress. However it does run big and it too long in the waist for a shorter frame.
Very Pretty Dress
I just received this today (pink). Tried it on and wasn't really sure...but the when I closed the neckline a bit with a Bosom Button and put my Sofft wedge shoes on (see below), the jury was in...I really like it. But it isn't really pink. It's more terra cotta. Matches my shoes beautifully!
So nice, but not for me
I so wanted to keep this dress. The tank dress is a really nice weight and the light floral print dress looks great on top. Love the concept of 'coat' or dress for that floral piece. The problem is I'm a DD and the cut of the floral piece sits poorly when closed. I could have worn it open but I was really looking for a dress with the other look. Tried it in two sizes but returned it because the chest area never looked good.
Sad, but will keep an eye out for another Clinton attempt at this style.
Gave it only 3 stars because of the issue. If the cut were more accepting of all body types, I would have ranked it much higher.
...yet so far. I really wanted this dress to work. I love the colors (got the navy), liked the style, and liked the quality. It just didn't work for my large-busted figure. Oh well. Back it goes. I will try another Clinton Kelly dress, though.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Finally a dress that fits. I have a big bust and this FITS!!!!! I also like that I can do different things with the overdress. wear it loose like a vest, tie it! Color isn't as bright a turquoise as it looks in the photo, but otherwise, I'm back for more dresses by Clinton Kelly! Yea.
Just love this dress
This is one dress that I really love, I went on the waitlist for it, but it was worth it, brought the size small just right, the only thing I have to do with it is shorten about 2 inches in both of course the underslip and the dress, brought it in the blue, even my husband liked it, it reminded me of the late 50s dresses, I hope Mr Kelly brings more of this kind of dress in other colours.
Ordered both colors, really pretty & comfortable dress! Colors and style are so feminine. Liner is substanstial, love washability too. Didn't give 5 stars though because i feel it is a bit pricey, even s/h too high for this piece, & i had to reorder both colors because it is definitely oversized. I am true size 10, ALWAYS a QVC medium , & medium was huge. (Small was perfect). LOVE it though.
This dress in the pink combo is beautiful the colors are right on! However I found the dress to run big. I am usually a 8/10 a small in QVC sizing but ordered> a med my mistake it was huge. I was placed on waitlist for a small but thought I would not get one it came YAY!! Tried the small on it too was way to big scared to send back because I love it so. Looked for days to see if XS would come yes!! I hit the jackpot now I ordered the xs so ladies size down it is worth all my troubles so pretty!!
Gauze Sack on Me
I think body type is a big factor with this dress because others seem to love it. I got a M and I wear a 10 dress. I have 17 other CK items in M and most fit well (except beautiful silky Henley blouse on which I took 6" off the hem). The slip hung low on me, but I could easily have taken 1" seams on the straps which would have fixed the sagging armholes and neckline. However, the dress overlay was enormous on me - everywhere. Too bad because the fabric and colors are pretty and I like the 2-piece design. Don't know why this is so off on me when my other CK dress (side-tie knit dress) is perfect.
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
Wow! This dress is the cutest thing that I've bought in awhile! Even my husband commented in it, and he never has an opinion on anything I wear. I bought the XS since it was the smallest size available, even though, according to the measurements provided, I should've tried a S. I am a 34DD and the XS fits like a glove. I am so happy, Clinton. Thanks for a darling, 70's style wrap dress that I will wear over and over and over...
very cute, great value
This dress is perfect! I hope that he makes more in other fabrics. Very Retro feeling, great fit on my curvy shape. A home run!
Love the pink floral; so much so that even though the size I ordered (large) was too big, I went on waitlist for it in a medium (I'm 5'3", 150lbs.). The length is just right (hits at the knee).The slip is separate so you can use it with other sheer dresses or on its own with just a shrug, a belt or a long necklace. The variety of ways to use the dress is like getting multiples for one price! This is a dress that transitions from office, to wedding, to evenings out with ease. Don't miss it!
