I’ve had the pleasure of working with Yala Designs for the past few years, and so far I haven’t received a product from them that I didn’t love. (Check out my reviews of the Luna Pajama Set and the Circle Top.) The same holds true for the latest product I received from Yala, the Bamboo Dreams Renee Slim Dress!
When I was choosing a product, I knew I wanted something that I could wear most of the year. Here in Phoenix, our weather is pretty warm all year; even our winter weather is very mild. Throw a jacket or sweater on, add a scarf or a warm pair of leggings and you’re good with most anything. This dress was perfect, with it’s elbow length sleeves, wide scoop neck, above-knee length and a slim fit. I am a conservative dresser, so this dress paired with leggings is perfect! It can be dressy enough I can wear it out to date night dinner, but also casual enough I can wear it when I go shopping. What budget conscious woman wouldn’t love to have a dress that can be worn year round and at almost any occasion?
I love how it hangs, and how amazingly comfortable it is! Made with 95% Viscose from Bamboo / 5% Spandex, you can imagine how comfy it is. If you’ve never worn bamboo, you’re missing out. Softer than cotton, so breathable and cool when you need it, warm when you need it. I know that almost doesn’t make sense, but it’s a true story! The only issue for me is the way it hangs on my hips. I have a curse; No matter how thin I am, I have love handles (blah) and certain materials just accentuate those nasty things even more. This dress is ‘slim fit’, so with that and the spandex, it clings in ‘tighter’ areas. While this dress makes me feel as if the love handles stand out, it still feels amazing when I wear it and I pretty much forget about it (and hope that the awesomeness that is the dress hides my imperfections). 🙂
Overall, I am loving having this piece in my wardrobe. It’s always great to have new clothes, but even better when it’s something I can wear year round and wear pretty much anywhere.
