Sigrid Olsen studio dress review

Hi gals and guys,

Welcome to the Top of the World Style linkup party. Before we start, I have something cool to share. A designer dress at an affordable price, even when you are on a budget. Thus, when you are still looking for some great summer clothes have a look at HSN.

HSN launched Sigrid Olsen’s line

They launched the classic American designer, Sigrid Olsen’s Fashion Line, on April 16. I was asked to review an item of my choice from her line for HSN. The choice was tough as her collection is beautiful with timeless pieces perfect for an ageless style.

Creative dresses in timeless cuts

Sigrid Olsen’s designs show her excellent creative spirit. She succeeds in designing interesting clothes that balance colors, simplicity, function, authenticity, and are ageless and classic. Have a look at this sample in the photo above to see what I am talking about. A classic western cut paired with a classic eastern print. What a nice twist! A real head turner.

Go for a western cut with an eastern print for a timeless look with an interesting twist. #agelessstyle Click To Tweet

A comfortable summer dress with polished look

This classic shift dress cut has an empire waist. It allows for movement and staying cool on hot summer days. You can even play beach ball with it or dance the night away in it. The top has enough room for even a size C breast. The dress’ hem hits just above the knee, the most flattering point for women of any age.

Slightly loose shift dresses are perfect to beat the summer heat in style. #dress4success Click To Tweet

Great details

This designer dress has a non-visible side zipper for easy dressing. The fabric is soft on the skin and the dress is well sewn (see photo below). The sewn-in slip makes the dress wearable even when your 21st birthday is long ago. No see-thru against the sun! The lilac ethnic inspired print on soft aquatic stripes looks timeless. This means you can wear it several summers and vacations in a row! 🙂

It is often cheaper to spend a bit more up front on a timeless dress as you can wear it in several summers. #budgetfashion Click To Tweet

Low cost-per-wear

The price-performance ratio is great. This dress has a timeless cut and print plus high quality. It will not go out of style. Assumed a typical wear and tear, it will look great even next summer, the summer after that and the summer thereafter. Thus, when you wear the dress on vacation, and every other weekend or so, the cost-per-wear will be below a dollar fast – my criterion for a great deal. This dress is perfect for every midlife woman who wants slow designer fashion and a timeless, posh look with a head turning twist.

In summary, given the great quality, price-performance ratio and timeless posh look of the dress, I can recommend this dress to my best buy friends. You can get your own designer dress from HSN. It’s a keeper.

How would you style this dress? Have you already picked your vacation dresses? Let me know by email, I am curious.
