Taupe Spot Print Belted Dress | Also offered in black
I recently placed my first order with UK clothing website, Wallis. I ordered the Taupe Spot Print Belted Dress, shown in the pictures. I also picked up a black jersey dress for only $18, but that one was too small, because I ordered it in petite and didn’t account for the stupid fact that petite sizes are normally smaller in all measurements, not just shorter. I ordered both dresses in size 4 (which is a size 8 in UK size, but they display American sizes on their .com site). Obviously I would order a size up in petites next time. I am very happy with the way both dresses looked. The quality is not fantastic, but for the price, I think it is a reasonable quality. The dress is not lined, and the zipper is a little difficult. The belt it comes with is pretty low quality, but that is to be expected even with a higher-priced dress. Both dresses were machine washable, which is a huge thing for me.
Wallis offers free shipping with orders over $30. You do have to pay for the return shipping, though. The sell clothing, petites, shoes, accessories and even beachwear. Probably only 30 percent of the items for sale appeal to me. Some of their items look a little too trashy or crazy for me personally. The items arrived on individual hangers (marked with the UK sizes), sealed in protective plastic bags. The price for this dress has changes at least 3 times since I bought it, so definitely keep an eye out for sales. I think it was about $50 when I bought it and it is currently $63. I would recommend checking them out!
I love it! It fits you like a glove and the length is perfect! Shame about not having free shipping but I love when things get sent on hangers in bags for some reason. Fancy!
Well it is free shipping TO you, but you have to cover return shipping costs. It cost me $11 to send the black dress (not pictured) back to them in the UK, using the cheapest shipping option available. Bummer.
