First I tried the Jacquard Bow dress in size 4, the smallest regular size in the store. It comes in sizes 4 to 20 and it is a mix of polyester/rayon. I am not too crazy about the polyester content in it. Here's some detail of the bow:
Next I tried the Silk Rosette skirt in size 4P, as size 4 was too big. It comes in regular sizes 4 to 20 as well as in a colour called Blush. The length was good, but there was too much fabric in the hip area:
The following is the Sleeveless Sequin sheath in size 4. Also comes in sizes 4 to 20 and 2P to 16P. The dress is a tad on the large side on me and the bottom had too much fabric in the seat area:
The following seems to be an in-store only item, as I don't see it online. It's a wool/polyester skirt size 4P with some gold-copper sheen on it. It felt great on. There was a jacket in a similar material, but I didn't try it on.
