wearing > tobi beyoni dress

Gee, I wonder who this dress is named after.

This dress reeled me in with the tulip hem, the deep purple color, and the numerous Tobi holiday sales (40% off!). It took a few visits to the Tobi site before I finally took the plunge because I questioned how flattering the waist would be and if it’d be too tight in some areas. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived.

This dress deserves to be glammed up – heels, loads of bracelets, a statement necklace, etc. BUT.  You could also throw on a cardigan, roll up the sleeves, opt for flats (and even tights), and keep the jewelry to a minimum. Ta da! A little less drinks at the wine bar and a little more casual, corporate minion.

    Hi! I’ve been looking for a long sleeve dress for a while, and I really like how this one looks online. Just wondering– what do you think of the fabric? My worry with ordering it online and not being able to try it on first is that I won’t like the feel/weight. Thanks for your help!

      Hi!

      The dress is 87% polyester, 10% rayon, and 3% elastic if that helps give you an idea of what it might feel like. I’d consider it medium weight that feels best for fall-ish weather. It has no lining which I think ‘cheapens’ the overall feel of the dress but isn’t necessary since the knit is thick enough and the color is so dark.

      Hope that helps!
