SLINKY Crochet Dress w/Flounce Hem 423-914 WOW!
Wednesday, May 20-2015… I’m so happy, I could just dance a jig! I finally found my ‘Little Black Dress’, (423-914). But, I also bought one in Turquoise! *lol*
I took a chance on this Dress because, well, I needed an LBD desperately. Having lost weight, my other one was just so frumpy-looking. I say I took a chance because I could see from the Photos and Video that this Dress was a little more form-fitting than most of Slinky’s products. Well, it IS form-fitting, but, lucky for me, it fits my particular form beautifully! *lol*
I love the Crochet, (it gives that little extra bit of femininity), and the Flounce hem, (which I usually don’t like as it always reminds me of ‘hillbilly-world’, *lol*), but, on this dress, it looks really pretty. AND, lastly, I really like that it’s a little Décolleté… always nice in a Little Black Dress. But, I can’t wear my comfort bra with it because of that feature. I have to wear a regular brassiere. But the pay-off is a little ooo-la-la. I can really rock my Heidi jewelry in this dress. And I’m lovin’ that!
The construction of the Dress is a Lined-affair with a solid Lining underneath the Crochet overlay. Both are as soft as can be to the touch… no scratch at all.
I’m 5’3 and the Dress comes to just below the largest part of my calf, so, a little more ‘maxi’ on me than is shown on the models. And that’s fine with me as I don’t care for short dresses.
I’m also an XL in size now, and that’s what I ordered. It fits True-to-Size.
I modeled it for my husband a couple of hours ago. His reaction? ‘Baby, make a reservation, I’m taking you out to dinner tonight!’ *lol*
Get one if you can… ITEM #423-914
First of all congratulations on your weight loss which is a great accomplishment. I too have been taking steps to lose weight recently and know how great you feel physically, health wise, and emotionally. Then to get to treat yourself to a great new dress is the best.

I do like the black…thanks for the head’s up…but I don’t think I would call that crochet…more just a lace. But that would be a great LBD. Thanks FM!!!! I trust your review! On my Favs! Congratz on your weightloss too!!!!! :smileywink:

Also, do you have any secrets to share on weight loss?
I recently started aerobics and a food log.
I need to drink more water. :womansurprised: This was not my problem last time I did this.
Very pretty dress. I’m a little shorter than you I like a dress or skirt that hits right below my knee I don’t look good if it’s longer. I really like it in black.
Thanks for sharing this…it is now on my wishlist! 🙂
Enjoy your evening …both of you!
The ivory would make a beautiful wedding dress for a simple wedding!
