Re: SG fit and flare tsv dress

I'm wearing a Susan Graver dress right now! 

 

I do wear dresses all of the time. I always wear a light jacket because of air conditioning. I've built up quite a nice collection of liquid knit cardigans!


I'm usually preparing on Saturdays, so I don't get online much. I did get on briefly after midnight and ordered the plain blue. I don't have a summer dress in that color!

 

I'm not a huge fan of elbow sleeves, but I will be wearing it with a light cardigan, probably a cream one. I do have a few printed ones, so one of those might look good too. 

 

Anyway, I'm a big fan of Susan's dresses. They fit my way of life well!   Smiley Happy

Re: SG fit and flare tsv dress

I think the dress is a fair price and some pretty prints but the fit and flare style is not my favorite.  I purchased a liquid knit dress for the first time a few months ago (A07224) and it was very comfortable and I received compliments but I just don't need another dress at this time.  Also, I prefer a straight shift style without all that material around my knees.  Its pretty though so I hope others enjoy.

Re: SG fit and flare tsv dress

I just want to say,i still have 3 of her dresses from many years ago, similar to this tsv, her clothes do last.

When you lose some one you L~O~V~E, that Memory of them, becomes a TREASURE.

I have to agree; there is nothing "dowdy" about this dress. It may not be everyones favorite style but it is definately not dowdy.

I agree that it looks on the dowry side. I tried one of her fit and flare dresses before because that's a style I like and wear. Something about the way they are cut looks matronly instead of modern. I think there is too much fabric in the waist and back area

Re: SG fit and flare tsv dress

This dress should sell extremely well.  It's the epitome of style for many of Susan's fans, according to a lot of the phone calls today.  Women have Susan Graver closets -- wow!  So this is a good TSV day for many.

 

I'm not a fan of the flare style of her dresses, the lengths, the elbow sleeves, or the prints.  

 

I don't wear Susan's fashions, for the most part.  I do have one of her denim jackets, and I absolutely love it!  One of the best denim jackets I own (and I own many Smiley Happy).  Also, her Weekend Premium Stretch pants are fabulous.  But so far, that's it.

 

I hope everyone who bought it enjoys their new dress.

@Catch71  @Kachina624  - The ones stating the dress is dowdy are describing how they themselves would look in the dress.   This is definitely not a dowdy looking dress.  

 

I do agree that Susan could have worn a smaller size though.

@fairydogmother   The length of the sleeve, the overall style, the print and the material it's made out of.  So, every thing about it.

Re: SG fit and flare tsv dress

This SG TSV looks quite nice on all of the models and hosts........not too-too tight anywhere, etc.

 

Can wear a few color options during Fall months, maybe underneath chunky or cardigan sweaters, etc.

 

The Black is a classic all year around.  

 

Love the fused reversible cardi's that complement these TSV fit and flare dresses. 

Especially the Black/with Oyster? and also the Navy/ with Chartreuse-ish green.  (Names of color choices aren't exact...check the item colors.)

Re: SG fit and flare tsv dress

Not a fan of elbow length sleeves. They look matronly. I'll try the blue print but not sure I'll keep it. I love the fit and flare TSV sleeveless dress she did a few years back. I own  2 and would have loved this one in sleeveless
