The Find: The Maggy London Dress

Sep 24, 2019

This is the third time I have put up this tie neck dress.  The last two times that I shared it, we sold it out.  So why am I sharing it again?  Because 1) there’s a new color (and it’s gorgeous), and 2) the dress is under-$40 but doesn’t feel like fast fashion.

Seriously, how good is that emerald-teal green?  This Maggy London Tie Neck Scuba Dress is one that I would easily buy again.  I purchased one during the legislative session and wore it at least once per week.

I like the look best with a collarless crewneck blazer.  It really shows off the neckline, and dresses up the look.

Plus-size?  Maggy London makes a similar dress in short sleeve and another in sleeveless, sadly, neither are on sale.

    Belle, I think you have mentioned that you’re pear shaped. Did you have to get this dress altered? I think it’s beautiful but usually avoid sheath-type dresses since I feel like my shape doesn’t work with them.

    • Belle says:

      I didn’t, but I was wearing the Spanx tights with it. The waist was in a good place for me, so it minimized the need for alterations.

    • Jenna says:

      I consider myself pear shaped and I’m wearing this dress right now. A great find!

    • Marie says:

      I will say, I’m pear shaped and ordered this dress–it didn’t *quite* fit right, but for me, the issue was where the waist hit. It’s too high for my long torso, and that causes an odd puffy area of extra fabric right around my midsection. So be aware of that, depending on your torso size. I don’t think it would affect a straighter body type in the same way.

    I love the cut of this dress, but IMO the material is a bit thin — I caught a look at myself in strong sunlight and was concerned about how well people could see my body/undergarments. I haven’t worn it since. Maybe I’d feel more comfortable in the fall with jackets and tights.

    I think this is cute but in a really flight attendant kind of way?

  4. Rh says:

    Did you machine wash as it (supposedly) says you can do or dry clean?

  5. E says:

    Finally pulled the trigger on this – here’s hoping!

    I have this dress pinned on my RTW inspiration board for knockffs I want to sew.
    I even found a gorgeous deep royal blue suiting fabric for it!

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
