Lands' End Dress Reviews: Pattern Cotton Modal Wrap Dress, Pattern Squareneck Dress, Border Stripe Faux Wrap Dress, & Polka Dot V-Neck Dress
'The Big Spring Sale' is taking place right now at Lands' End until 4.2.13. Shoppers can save up to 30% off all Dresses, Pants, Shorts, & more, plus get Free Shipping on Orders of $50+ with code JELLYBEAN pin 2502 at checkout. I purchased several dresses during the LE F&F event last month, and have a handful of reviews in case anyone is considering a purchase during this sale.
First up is the Short Sleeve Pattern Cotton Modal Wrap Dress - in Ink Blue Floral.
The description on the Lands' End website reads:
An iconic women’s dress style, a super soft fabric.
Oh how I adore this dress! Out of all the dresses I tried, this is by far my absolute favorite. Not only is the floral pattern and color very pretty, but it is extremely flattering on, and incredibly comfortable to wear, too. This is a versatile 'everyday' dress to wear at home, for running errands, and even out to dinner in many cases.
Sizing: I ordered the dress in an XXS Petite, and the fit is just right. Because LE tends to run on the large side, I order the petite sizing as long as the length is not too short. Thankfully the petite length on this one is 37.5 inches, which is perfect for my height of 5'4", and the dress comes to just above my knee.
Next up is the Pattern Squareneck Dress in 'Light Dew Green Print'. The description on the website reads:
Soft and pretty.
This was another 'keeper' for me. I am always on the lookout for comfortable, flattering dresses to wear on a daily basis at home and for running errands, and this one fits the bill. Plus the print and colors remind me so much of 'Old School' J.Crew!
Sizing: Once again I ordered the dress in an XXS Petite, and just like the wrap dress, the fit is just right.
I also decided to give the Short Sleeve Border Stripe Faux Wrap Dress a try because I think the dress silhouette, colors, and print are really lovely. The description on the website reads:
Pretty and iconic.
The fabric and quality of the dress are both excellent. The colors are beautiful IRL, although as you can see from my pic below, the cream portion of the dress is not as light as it appears on the LE website. The dress comes without a belt, and while it can definitely be worn that way, I think it looks best when worn with a belt.
Sizing: I ordered the dress is a 0 Petite, and it was still too large for me, especially at the waist. It did fit better when belted, but flared out a bit too much for my personal liking. Sadly, it just did not work out for me overall and was returned.
The Polka Dot V-neck Dress from LE Canvas caught my eye due to the color, print, and silhouette, so I decided to also give it a try. The description reads:
This year’s vintage.
Material: 100% cotton. Machine wash. Imported.
This is yet another dress made of substantial fabric and is excellent quality. The color is an absolutely lovely shade of blue with off-white polka-dots.
Sizing: I ordered this one in a size 0, and while it fit perfectly at the bust and waist, the length was just way too long and the skirt portion was too voluminous, so it went back, as well.
All in all, I am very pleased with the quality of the dresses I ordered, even though the fit was off for me on a couple of them. In my experience, the quality at Lands' End is always excellent, and I think that they are definitely moving in the right direction when it comes to their style, print, and color offerings.
That's it for now! Have a lovely day, and Happy Shopping!!! :)

|J.Crew is offering 25% Off & Free Shipping on orders of $150+
with code LOVEJCREW at checkout until 3.30.13. J.Crew Cardmembers
receive 30% Off & Free Shipping on orders of $150+ with code
CARDMEMBER at checkout until 3.30.13, as well. J.Crew has also done a
'switch-up' on the Promo-priced items this week...a lot of new items
have been marked to promo-price, while others have gone back to
regular-price or marked down to sale price (now making them final sale).|
For those of you who aren't familiar with Promo-priced items, they are select Regular-price pieces that J.Crew marks down to a 'Promotional Price' for a short amount of time. These items are eligible for any extra % off sale or full-price promotions that may occur at any time. The Promo-priced items are also eligible for the Educator and Student Discounts, so if you are a teacher or student you can receive an additional 15% off on them, as well.
The promo-prices are usually in effect for a week or two (sometimes longer), then they either go back up to full-price or move on into Final Sale. I have noted the majority of the Women's Promo-priced items currently available on the J.Crew website, as well as the items that have been marked down (please note that the items ending in $.99 are the ones that have been marked down further from Promo-price and are now at Final Sale).
