Recently, I had the pleasure of visiting the BCBG Max Azria store to try on some of the newest Herve Leger dresses. Here's an update on what's currently in stores and my personal opinions of them.
Disappointingly, a lot of the dresses that were totally new compared to previous collections were not in the store. I was looking forward to trying on the peplum Herve Leger dresses like Annette (here), and the gold chain embellished pieces like Lisett (here). :(
Most 2014 dresses that were available seemed to consistently run about half a size big compared to 2013's collection which ran very true-to-size. There were also more dresses with print, and less dresses that were individually banded. The dresses tried on belong in 2014 collections, and these dresses also tend to be longer than the dresses found in 2013. While the dresses were impressive, I personally feel that the selection at Lollipuff is better.
First dress that I tried on was a simple blue scoopneck a-line dress. The hold was moderate, and it was classically beautiful. This dress ran half a size big. It can be found here.
The Miranda dress (here) was another right-above-the-knee bandage dress that ran half a size big. The hold was less tight than banded Herve Leger, but the thickness of the fabric makes the dress very flattering.
The Adrianne dress ran half a size big as well. While the beading and design of this dress is very slimming, I found the ornate beading and pattern too busy for my small frame. This dress also had a moderately firm hold.
The Eva dress has been made in a variety of colors now. This watercolor jacquard Eva is simple and pretty. I personally prefer the solid-colored faux-banded versions. This dress also ran half a size big.
Of these 5 dresses, the denim Aja dress (here) was my favorite. I liked the length and this dress had moderate to firm hold. The design was also extremely slimming, and the style was very unique and memorable. It also ran half a size big.
While the dresses of 2014 are beautiful, the ones from 2013 are better in my personal opinion. Check out one of my 2013 Herve Leger dress review posts. If you really like the 2013 dresses like I do, be sure to peruse the selection at Lollipuff. We currently have a bunch of these gorgeous pieces on sale here!
