Rachel Parcell Square Lace Neck Dress Review
For this Rachel Parcell Dress Review, I’m wearing the Square Neck Lace Dress in Purple Hush. This is a lavender lace midi dress, with puffed sleeves, a ruffle trumpet hem and a square neckline. This silhouette is right on trend with its romantic puffed sleeves and unique square neckline. I like that you do not need to wear a strapless bra with this dress, and since it comes in sizes all the way up to XXL (Size 18), it would accommodate a range of bust sizes.
The romantic sleeves were a very unique feature for me and really make this design stand out. Many designers including Reformation are featuring this design detail, and the Rachel Parcell Dress collection has many other puff-sleeve options! Of course, this look might be too feminine for some people, and might accentuate wider shoulders. For me, I think this balances out wider hips and draws attention to your face, so I think it’s a great silhouette for hourglass and pear-shaped women.
Overall, I loved the shape of this dress, as well as the midi length which feels more formal and versatile for fancier occasions. I seem to have a thing for purple lace dresses, including a lace romper I featured here. This purple lace dress is a lot more reserved and elegant, and I love that Nordstrom stocked it in a wide range of sizes. For reference, I am wearing a size small, and I typically wear a size 4 dress, so this collection runs true to size.
Rachel Parcell Dress Review: Quality
For around $200.00 Canadian, the Rachel Parcell Dress collection is a wonderful value. The lace was incredibly soft (not scratchy), and all the seams were even, straight and well made. It wasn’t a perfectly tailored dress, however, with a couple nips at the waist and shoulders, this dress would fit like a glove.
I personally loved all the variation in the pattern of the lace, which gave it a more high-end feel like a Bardot lace dress, however it wasn’t as thick to wear like a Self-Portrait dress, and the price point is a lot easier to digest! Another plus is that the Rachel Parcell Dress collection is available at the Toronto Yorkdale Nordstrom location, which made it easy to try it on and avoid duty fees.
The Purple Hush Square Neck Lace Dress is currently on sale at Nordstrom and is a lovely, feminine piece. I hope you enjoyed this Rachel Parcell Dress review, and if you have any questions about sizing or availability, let me know in the comments below!
