Summer 2011, Talbots found itself in a precarious position. The brand was trying to reach out to the younger demographic and it seemed that the (newer) young and long-term customers were not liking the offerings. Well, it seems this year (Spring/Summer 2012) that Talbots is working diligently on catering to both demographics while keeping its classic bent.
The Talbots Trellis Lace Dress has been on my wishlist since I saw the Spring lookbook in Fall 2011. My eye has been on the Ivory version. The lace is gorgeous and the dress is so romantic and flirty. I got a chance to see and feel this dress in-store and the material is substantive, definitely good quality. Definitely made me want the Trellis Lace dress more.
Well, this dress seems to be selling out (at full-price) in the Women’s sizes, so I do not know if the Ivory dress *will come home with me, anytime soon. *sniff sniff* Maybe…A miracle?!?! 🙂
