Review: Rue LaLa

Yesterday I *finally* got my Rue LaLa! I purchases two items from the Lilly Pulitzer sale, the "Chic" Prep Green Embroidered Polo and the "Lola" Hotty Pink print  dress. Here is what I think....

The polo (xs) fits like a dream. Fits well in chest, waist, and shoulders. Length is perfect... seems like something I could wear casually to school, wear on the golf course, or dress up with a skirt and pearls.

The Lola print dress (pink and orange bicycle pattern) is a different story. Not knowing how Lilly dresses usually fit, I ordered a 2. In retrospect, I think I would go with a 4. I'm a little more "busty" so I need the extra space up top. The length of the 2 is perfect (barely grazes knee) so I would probably would have to do some alteration on the 4.

Speaking of that, how hard is it to take out a LP dress? I want to keep the 2 but see if a seamstress can take out the top just a little bit to make it a little more comfortable. Has anyone else ever done this?

Overall, I'm very happy with my Rue LaLa experience. It got here when the website said it would and the clothing well protected in the shipping box. I will be ordering from Rue LaLa in the future!
