Dezzal is a new shopping site that claims to feature in-house designers and selected designer brands. The clothing style is described as “edgy yet complementary” to appeal to the young urban woman seeking unique designs.
I was expecting a website similar to the likes of Chicwish, SammyDress and ROMWE; colorful banners, pages and pages of $4 dresses, featured bloggers automatically updating in a scroll bar at the bottom of the page. But instead I was welcomed by a very clean, modern black and white page with professional photography.
I always check out a new website’s dresses first to get an idea of their style and cost. The prices ranged from $50 to $360, the most expensive dress being a 100% silk striped midi dress that actually comes in a size 2XL.
Oh but wait, according to their size conversion chart, a 2XL is a US size 8! What!
As a size 12, I can already pretty much conclude that majority of the clothes on this website would not fit me unless it were meant to fit “oversized” or contained an elastic or rayon material. But who wants to wear synthetics in the summer? Not my “4XL” self.
But okay, not everyone is a size 12. Slender and petite women who shimmy comfortably into a size 8 and below can still take advantage of the actual unique and eye-catching design of these clothes. I was really impressed by the style selection and thoughtful details and craftsmanship. I’ve never tried on any of their clothes, so I can’t attest that the pieces are as attractive in person, but I was inspired by all the lace, embroidery and silhouettes. My following picks are all either 100% cotton or silk.
Dezzal appears to take its designers seriously, and features them and their collections on the website. I see a real emphasis put on the creative vision behind the design of every piece, and admired the separate tab for the designers so that you can read about their aesthetic and shop their pieces directly.
I did find one inconsistency regarding the designers and their items, which is the double appearance of this white dress. It is listed under two different designers and prices despite being the exact same 100% polyester dress. The only difference I could find was the addition of it being “micro-elastic” under the product description for the more expensive dress. But this minor detail shouldn’t warrant one dress being more expensive, much less the work of a second designer.
Perhaps this was simply a mistake, or I am just not seeing the difference, but it’s a beautiful dress regardless.
I’m also impressed that the site ships worldwide, and shipping is free if you spend $59 or more. But remember that your country may charge you taxes for ordering from a website outside of your country, or Europe for my case. The more expensive the item, the higher the tax.
Overall, I enjoyed scrolling through these modern designs and have already bookmarked a few dresses to revisit when Germany decides to stay consistently warm. I am sick of pants, and my wardrobe could use a few cool fresh designs.
Thank you to Dezzal for inspiring this post.
