This is the second dress I received from Dezzal.com, a website I reviewed a few weeks ago and had my doubts about based on the size range of their clothing. Dezzal let me pick items from their website to review so, yeah let’s do this.
Alright, this is the softest dress I picked, and the most forgiving. I have to admit there were times when I felt a bit like I was wearing a Muumuu, but it has a pleating in the back and is sewn in towards the waist, so my shape isn’t completely lost.
I was drawn to the floral embroidery, its bright colors and pattern reminding me of Mexican peasant dresses. This is something that my teenager self would have totally rejected, but feels so exotic to wear in Germany. I’ve dealt with a few problems since moving here concerning the color of my skin and hair, so to wear a dress that pays a slight homage to my Mexican American heritage feels good.
My only problems are with the frayed edges of the dress. It’s consistent on all the hems, but I had to cut a few long stray threads and a small part of the collar looks sloppy. It wasn’t something that a few scissor snips couldn’t fix, but for being $132.99 I would have expected a cleaner hem.
I paired it with statement earrings and lace-up mustard flats since the design is rather large. To add even more shape to the look, I wore a jean jacket when it started to rain.

As for the packaging, my dresses came in thick plastic bags with a ZIP LOCK. I mean, I can totally reuse these.
I’m used to receiving clothes in disposable thin plastic with adhesive, so this was a bit of a luxury. The dresses were folded neatly inside but needed ironing and steaming when removed.
tl;dr Dress is soft and wide, which allows room for ample burrito eating and field twirling, but has a delicate hemline.
Thank you to Dezzal for sponsoring this post.
