Online Boutique: Introducing Club Couture

I love maxi dresses for summer. However, shopping for the right maxi dress can become a real challenge, especially for petite woman. I love my H&M maxi dress but always feel a bit too dressy wearing it. I’ve been on the lookout for something a bit more casual. I had my eyes on this purple halter maxi when Club Couture was kindly offered a $100.00 for me to shop. This dress was one of the items I have picked out.




There were some discussions among the petite blogging community regarding what should be the perfect length for maxi dresses? The answer is “I don’t know”. It all depends on your personal preference. Some like floor-length and some prefer ankle-length. For me, I like the length to hit right at my ankles (approximately 2 inches off the ground). As for reference, I am 5’3 and the length of this dress is perfect for me. Maxi dresses tend to look better with flats. I made a mistake pairing my H&M dress with a pair of wedges. A few fellow bloggers were kindly pointed out to me. That's what I love about my fellow bloggers. They help me to dress better :)


What I love about this dress is the gorgeous eggplant color. I don’t have a lot of purple pieces in my closet. Hence, I am excited to have this new addition. One thing I want to mention is that the straps can be worn 2 ways. You can tie them around the back of your neck for a halter style or crisscross across your back for a racer-back style.



What I am wearing:
Dress: Club Couture Purple Halter Maxi Dress - size S (buy here)
Sandals: Steve Madden (buy similar here - available in small sizes)
Straw hat: Ann Taylor Factory (buy similar here)
Necklace: Lia Sophia Fancy That Necklace (buy here)


Club Couture is a Singapore-based company. They offer a wide range of casual styles and the prices/quality are, in my opinion, in the same range as Forever 21 . I got my package 7 days after I ordered it. It wasn’t bad at all. Overall, my shopping experience with Club Couture was great. If you plan to pick up this maxi dress, please use code “CCBLOG15” for additional 15% off your entire purchase.

Disclosure: I bought this dress with a $100 store credit courtesy of Club Couture. As always, my reviews are my personal opinion. I will not be compensated for posting this review on my blog.

  12. i love this dress and THAT color. I love how you add the necklace to it. I agree with no wedges on maxi dresses too. I'm 5'4 so i love wearing flats with them.
