I was introduced to another great online boutique – ADELA ROSE.
What makes this boutique different, is that they specialise in cocktail dresses, black-tie dresses and structured styled dresses in high quality fabrics. All of the dresses are under US$100.
The quality, fabric and craftsmanship is excellent too. If I would compare the quality of these dresses to dresses you buy in the department stores, I’d say these would be worth between $200 – $300.
The focus of Adela Rose is structure and tailoring. I have dozens of drapey, jersey, slinky dresses… so trying on these dresses was a breath of fresh air.
Above I’m wearing a Black Off-Shoulder Ruffle Dress – which fit me perfectly. The team at Adela Rose sent me a whole heap of dresses to test and review, and they kindly let me choose 2 dresses to keep. I chose this one because the shoulder ruffle looked cool and the silky material felt lovely.
I’m also wearing a Ruffle Trimmed Wool Mini. At first I wasn’t so sure about this dress, I thought that it might look a bit too executive for me (as pictured on the model), but when I tried it on, it felt fabulous and girly, yet still executive! The wool blend fabric gave the dress a good weight too. If I was going to keep it, I’d probably get it altered to fit me perfectly.
This Red One Should Satin Dress was also lovely. The ruffle detail is very cool. I don’t own a structured satin red dress, so I knew I had to keep this one! And since I’m keeping it, I plan to get it taken in a bit at the armpit. I love it! It also comes in a black.
Adela Rose has a really nice collection of structured-styled dresses, in more modest cuts and lengths, that are perfect for the professional workplace.
The Black Sleeveless Shift Dress is a kind of bandage style dress, with nice mesh panels. Really liked this dress too.
