A “Faux Wrap Dress”?

Ladies my April box from Stitch Fix was one of the best boxes I've received in a long time.  I received this gorgeous, and comfortable "Faux Wrap" dress in that box.  As usual, I won't let you know if I kept it or not until after I review each piece separately and then do a review a post in a few weeks.


For those of you wondering, yes, you are getting another sneak peak at my new living room, but it is STILL not done so I can't do a big reveal post yet.  I'm still looking for a couple of pieces needed to complete the room.  I will say, although it didn't turn out as I envisioned it, I am accepting the new reality and enjoying it.  I ended up LOVING my new recliner (the piece I was most worried about) that you can see in the picture below,  and would you believe, I did not like the new leather chair in this room at all so I moved it to another room?  UGH!  What a huge waste of money that was.  This remodel has been a total disaster and has discouraged me from ever remodeling a room again, but I will tell you more about that in the big reveal post.  I have the feeling that will be a very long post. 


Anyway, back to fashion.  The dress is a comfortable, soft jersey knit.  It feels wonderful on!  The name of the dress is Leota Finnley Jersey Faux Wrap Dress.  It's called a "Faux Wrap" because it looks like a wrap, but you actually pull it over your head to get it on. It's actually quite nice, because you get all the benefits of a wrap dress (wrap dresses are figure flattering on everyone!) without having to worry about a breeze blowing it open revealing things you don't want seen.  It's actually an ingenious idea, and I wish all my wrap dresses were made like this.


I paired the dress with a faded denim jacket, nude sandals, and a clutch from Sole Society that I also received in this Fix.


The wrap dress is sleeveless, but it has a thick shoulder band so I can wear a regular bra with it.  I really detest spaghetti straps and I usually avoid most spaghetti strap dresses.  I like that it is sleeveless because I can wear the dress when it's hot but I can also easily cover my arms with a jacket or cardigan too.  Perfect!




I really liked the colors in this dress,  especially the teal.  I don't have anything like this in my closet already.  At first, I thought it was a bird print, but upon closer inspection I discovered it was not.

Have a Great Day and Happy Mother's Day!  Amy

    1. Thanks Jodie! I so agree, I don't mind wearing a strapless bra, but I prefer not too.

    1. Thanks Ellie! I'm glad you like my sneak peek of my living room. I'm really nervous about posting the big room reveal as it turned out nothing like I envisioned it.

  5. That is such a cute dress and so nice with the denim jacket :)

    I can't do faux wrap dresses, being petite I need ones I can adjust. I do have one from the Target Dannii Minogue petite collection that's a faux wrap and fits like a dream - I love it for work!

    Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend :)
