Chiffon Floral Print Dress

Hi! This will be one of my fashion-related posts where I review this gorgeous chiffon dress from Sammy Dress with a batwing sleeve and floral print below the waist.

I was planning to wear this dress out for an event/date but after receiving the dress from Sammy Dress, the weather hasn't been looking that great for me to wear this summer dress which is a major pity! We're already in the middle of autumn/fall and with daylight savings in place, the days are becoming colder and darker. I was planning to do a proper outfit of the day post with lovely pictures but it didn't happen :( I'm quite devastated! Hopefully with the photos that I have taken, they'll do the dress justice!

I've paired it with a slightly chunky necklace to go with the dress. The necklace that I'm wearing is from Myer Miss Shop. The model on the Sammy Dress site is also wearing a chunky necklace.

$13.84 AUD
Size S

As expected with most clothing that is purchased/obtained online, there are creases and they are especially noticeable with chiffon, a type of thin fabric. But despite the obvious creases, I'm a fan of chiffon dresses/tops because they give off that elegant, flowy style and with a feminine personality like mine, I'm automatically drawn to them.

Usually I would iron out the creases but with chiffon, it's a little more tricky since the fabric is very delicate and my iron doesn't have temperature settings. Also I wanted to show you guys how the dress looks like right out of its packaging and parcel packaging.

If I had worn this dress out, which I was planning to, I would have worn it with these white clog sandals which are cute and fashionable for summer. I find clog sandals really easy to wear and pair with outfits - comfy and stylish! You either love them or you hate them but I'm a fan.

Chiffon is one of the best materials for summer clothing - it's loose-fitted and keeps you cool! The batwing sleeves add a bit of classy-ness to the dress and so does the side bow which I like being there instead of being tied at the back (although you can choose to tie it at the back). I like the scoop-neck neckline which makes it perfect to wear necklaces and it just sits perfectly without being too low-cut/revealing. Dresses that expose too much just ain't my thing!

It has an elastic waist

The top half being double-layered isn't opaque enough for my liking but it's not a problem because I can simply wear a cream/beige camisole underneath. The bottom half is also double-layered but the floral print makes it non-see-through. Speaking of the floral print, I really like the pattern - it's not too in-your-face and the colour combinations are nice. And the length of this dress is just right, not too short or too long. Sitting about 10 cm above my knee is comfortable :)

I'm really happy with the dress and I can't wait to be able to wear it out, whether it's in summer or on a cool day with a pair of stockings. I was actually thinking of wearing it out with stockings but I didn't think that it would look nice in photos so I decided not to. Plus this dress is labelled as a summer dress on the website so maybe I should wear it as a summer dress in summer. $13.84 AUD is a bargain for a dress like this and there are flat rates for shipping to make your shopping easier on Sammy Dress. Check it out here!


Hope you enjoyed reading my review :) Once I get the chance to wear this dress out on a sunny day, I'll definitely snap some pics and upload them on here and Twitter.

Questjen of the week:

Are you liking the floral trend?

Because I certainly am, and to be honest I wasn't initially that crazy about floral prints. At first I found them to be too out-there and different to general patterns and colours but over time I got used to seeing them and started to really admire the different flowers and colours seen on clothing pieces. And now I can't get enough of them! However I wouldn't wear an outfit of floral prints from head to toe - moderation is key for me!

  1. I love the floral trend! But not too floral-y because I don't like to dress too girly. But I sure love a floral skirt.
    And that dress looks really nice! I'm usually really skeptical of the quality of items from asian websites and sometimes they don't even look like the picture but this one seems alright. :)

    1. Ah I see. I agree :) Yeah me too, this one's not bad
