Casual Outfits: Marc Jacobs Dress, Chinese Laundry Shoes & F.A.N.G. Jacket

August 20, 2010

This is my first Marc Jacobs dress, I got it off ebay, it was advertised as being a runway piece (in retrospect that was probably just an advertising tactic). It wasn't cheap, but I love the color and needed a spring dress. However, in spite of it being an XS, it was still pretty baggy on me. I think the belt and the jacket hide some of the awkward fit, does it still need to be altered?

I think it looks ok from the front when it's belted but the sideview leaves a lot to be desired so that's why I added the jacket.

  1. Oooh, I LOVE it with the belt and the jacket! But then I'm a fan of anything belted.

    It's a fantastic dress, such a great color. I'd get it altered if it makes you feel better but I tend to belt everything and anything, so for me personally, I'd avoid the cost of alterations and just belt it every time or wear a cardigan/jacket that can be buttoned at the waist for more definition.

    It's lovely on you!

  2. Thank you Melissa for your frank response. I think belting will do the job for now, my tailoring bill is through the roof and I really could have a small car with that money if I knew how to alter things. :)

  3. I personally think you should alter it. The material looks like it is cotton? (just guessing) That would be an easy fix for alterations. The belt and the jacket is a good fix in the meantime.
