The Find: The Maggy London Dress

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.

      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.

      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 didn’t have that issue. But admittedly I usually wear it with dark tights.

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

      It has that vibe, but I cut down on it with a blazer and cool boots.

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

      I have. I just put it in a mesh wash bag, and it turned out fine.

    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!
