I bought this dress as a final sale from Banana Republic. I think it cost me something like $20. I bought it while pregnant, thinking it would be the right size postpartum. I got it… and realized it was too big. It's an XL, even though I may be XL in some places, I obviously am not for this dress. I think next time I may wear it with a belt. If that doesn't look good, I will have to donate this to a taller, larger-boned friend.
I have been using it almost every night (yes, I must admit I sometimes pass out before taking off my makeup) and every morning and have seen a big change in my skin. Compare my skin above to my skin here, a month prior. You can see that the wrinkles in my forehead and around my eyes are less pronounced, my age spot on my cheek is a bit fainter, and even the little bumps I always have on my chin are clearning up. I bet the change will be more obvious in another month. I am known to have reactions to harsh chemicals and salycitic acid, but I haven't had a single reaction to this line and the eye cream doesn't irritate my allergy-prone, contacts-wearing eyes.
The kit isn't cheap, but it has been a month and I still have 1/3 of the day and eye creams and probably half of the night cream. This kit is worthy of repurchase in the full-size containers.
You pull off a sweater dress like no other! I thought they were only for bone-thin, waif-like women. You look stunning in the dress!
Yup I think belted would be the way to go. And loving the color and cowl neck!

I love the Olay Professional Pro, best product ever. No more circles around my eyes, no more fine lines, it makes my skin look great!
I bought my set for under $30, that was because I used a coupon I had a couple of months ago, I hope to find another coupon because I will need another set soon!
Great look and color on you. Keep it, belt it if you have to but keep it. Hope you do.
Ha! I too am wearing a knitted, bought-in-the-BR-sale, not-sure-if-it-suits-me dress today. Like you, I am loving the cosy sweater-ness of it (I am getting over a seriously heavy head cold)! I have found this dress to be more ‘me’ when I wear it with flats and thick tights (I found boots too bulky and high up my leg so they made my legs look shorter and wider than I would like)- maybe this would work for you too? I would definitely keep experimenting because the colour is absolutely wonderful on you and a dress that feels like a hug is worth keeping, in my opinion..
No strong fragrance – if anything it has a bit of the “I have chemicals in me” sort of smell. But even that isn’t too extreme.
Does the Olay Cream have a strong fragrance? Fragrances irritate my skin (rosacea) in addition to making me sneeze. Just wanted to check before buying.
Ooooo, I really like the dress on you! I would try it with a belt, cuz the color is just GORGEOUS, and I like the style. It looks so cozy, too. I think you just need a book to cuddle up with!
Keep the dress – you look great in it and the color is just simply gorgeous on you! Keep it, it works!
You’re a total knockout in that dress, Allie!
