I am reviewing the Retro Glam Lace Dress in Black Lace with Purple Lining from Kiyonna. The Retro Glam Lace Dress is a gorgeous confection of a frock that channels 1940's glamour into a wearable modern style. Black scalloped stretch lace overlays a dramatic purple lining accented with a black rayon sash and a vintage style rhinestone brooch. The surplice neckline flatters and fits beautifully, highlighting the bustline while still providing good coverage. The sash at the waist gives lovely shape to the dress and vintage style brooch adds a touch of glitz. I love the sleeve length on this dress, a bit longer than normal they come down to my elbow providing more coverage for the chillier weather. The skirt is fitted at first flaring slightly to a little flirtatious flounce at the bottom edges. I styled my Retro Glam Lace Dress with a mix of modern and vintage accessories for an impromptu dinner date out with my husband. This dress is beautiful, an easy way to look glam with very little effort!

I am smitten with the vintage feel and styling of the Retro Glam Lace Dress. It is nearly impossible to find actual vintage dresses in plus sizes that are also in wearable condition, I am always thrilled to add a dress to my wardrobe that has the vintage flair I love in a size I can wear! This dress does fit a bit more snug than other Kiyonna dresses, I am wearing my normal size 1x and it fits like a glove. The nylon spandex blend material has a good bit of stretch so it will loosen up with wear but if you are between sizes I would recommend sizing up.
