|Pictured: Siriano’s modern two-piece black suit for Spiegel.|
Back in early March, I blogged that Christian Siriano was launching a limited edition collection with Spiegel. I was truly excited to have the opportunity to buy lower priced Christian Siriano garments similar to some of his Oscar fashions and New York Fashion Week runway collections via Spiegel. Unfortunately, I was not as excited about the suit once it arrived and I tried it on. I promised to give you an update on the suit once I received it, so here it is. The suit was not for me. The jacket was a little too form fitting (when zipped ) to be good business attire and the Peplum trim was jutting out on the bottom of the jacket, which I felt made my hips look bigger than need be. The Peplum looks like a big ruffle hanging form the waistline of the jacket, in my humble opinion. Bottom line, I’m returning the suit to Speigel. It took 2 months to get the suit from the time of order, and the special event I had planned to wear it for has already past. Plus, for the total price of $171.00, I decided, I should be in love with this suit, and it should be in love with me. Sadly, it’s not, so I have to truck to the nearest UPS today and put a big fat return label on it. If the suit doesn’t fit, you must return and get your credit card charges refunded readers! That’s the way it goes.
Has anyone else tried a piece from Christian Siriano for Spiegel? If so please leave a comment and let me know you thoughts. The style and fit didn’t work for me, but it might be a dream for someone with a different shape. I do think Christian Siriano is a worthy and wonderful designer, so I’m sad this one didn’t work out.
