Work Outfits : Rampage Dress + Alberta Ferretti OxfordsSeptember 02, 2010
A few weeks ago I saw this really beautiful Theory dress at the outlets. I was smitten with it but more than a little put off by the price tag. I figured I'd wait until it goes on further sale and hope that my size will still be available. As fate would have it, I soon came across this Rampage dress in XS, the last of this size, for $25 at a TJMaxx. It looked like a distant cousin of the Theory dress that I coveted and at a fraction of its price I took the plunge. It fits surprisingly well and (IMO) looks better in person. My only complaint is that I think this dress would have worked better on someone with a shorter bust line, the belt actually falls a good two inches above my natural waistline which doesn't bother me too much but I am a little nit-picky.

Lastly, and I am sorry about the delay, I am really spacey sometimes. But I finally had an opportunity to measure the Miss Selfridge dress from this post and these measurements were taken with the dress laid flat. Bust: (almost) 14 inches across. Waist: (almost) 12 inches across. It's a bubble skirt so I think it'll accommodate up to a 35 in hip? There is little to no stretch so someone super small like PetiteXXS would probably fit it comfortably.
