Hi y’all!! Does anyone else remember when Amazon used to just sell books?! Now you can virtually buy ANYTHING on Amazon… You can literally buy a “prefabricated home in a shipping container” for $36,000 on Amazon… a home!! How insane is that?! Well, all sarcasm aside, I decided to check out the clothing department on Amazon and see if it could compete with other online shopping sites. And I found these maxi dresses for under $25 and decided to give them a try!
Specifically, I bought the “Grecerelle Womens Casual Loose Pocket Long Dress Short Sleeve Split Maxi Dresses” in “01 Black” and “11 Dark Gray”. And I bought the “Makemechic Casual Maxi Short Sleeve Split Tie Dye Long Dress” in “gray”. The Grecerelle dresses were $23.80 + Amazon Prime so free two-day shipping and the tie dye dress was $24.99 + Amazon Prime.
I ordered the X-Small in all three dresses and they do run true to size! Since they are maxi dresses, they’re kind of long on me (because I’m only 5ft tall…), so I have to wear heels or booties with them. The Grecerelle dresses are a nice cotton material so they’re able to be worn to work as well! And the Makemechic dress is a polyester blend but it isn’t see-thru at all!! Plus you can tie the front of the dress up to show off more leg 😉
My only complaints about the dresses are that the Grecerelle dresses have really big pockets and they stick out right on your hips so it makes your hips look way bigger than they are… So if you already do have wide hips, you might not want to try these dresses or just order a size down so it will be more form-fitting. And the Makemechic “gray” dress looks more navy blue and not gray but that’s not really an issues because it’s still super cute!
These dresses are good for running errands, casual breakfast, brunch, lunch with friends or family, or Spring/Fall work wear. I’ve worn mine to all of the above and got lots of compliments! I wish my midsection and hips/thighs were just a tad slimmer so that the dress would look just a little more flattering on me, but overall I’m very pleased with the way these look! And they’re super comfortable omg!
If you’re growing tired of your wardrobe but can’t afford a shopping spree at Nordstrom (#same), I would definitely suggest giving Amazon a try because it’s inexpensive, affordable, you can get way more for your money, and the clothes are surprisingly good fit and good quality. And if they don’t fit, most everything is free returns and no-hassle!! I would suggest reading the reviews on everything!!!!
