SWAK Nora Dress

Sealed With a Kiss Designs (SWAK)
Nora Dress

Shoes: Payless

Summer is almost over!  I am half sad about that... and half happy.  Summer never really ends here in L.A.  The days stay warm enough to wear sundresses almost year round.  The end of Summer does mean that the evenings will get a little cooler, here.  I am very much looking forward to that. 

I got this adorable cotton sundress from SWAK a couple of weeks ago... and if you're lucky you can snag one before they're gone forever! 

The original retail price is $69.90.
With their Labor Day Sale (Use code: LABORDAYSALE82714) you get an additional 40% off the clearance price which makes this gem a steal at only $24 (plus shipping).
Code expires on September 2nd, 2014 (I will try to remember to edit the blog to remove it once the sale is over).

I recommending ordering up (or ordering your true size if you are used to sizing down with SWAK purchases).  The dress has light [read: minimal] elastic smocking in the back of the bodice.  It isn't enough to give busty gals enough room. 

I'm wearing a size 22/24.  I don't think that the dress would have fit better in a larger size. 

My other big issue with the construction on these adorable cotton dresses SWAK carries is that the skirt is very straight up and down with gathering under the bodice (I also loved the Maggie crinoline dress they offered last year, but had similar issues with it) the skirt doesn't have any real shape because of this.  So, it can look a little bit like a flour sack. 

However!  The details on the Nora dress make me love it excessively (and not care about the shapeless sack-nature of the skirt).  The generous lace on the bottom hem, the functional lace-up bodice (with modesty panel!!!) and the lace details under and around the bust just really make this dress romantic and special.
