This past weekend was Buffer Festival here in Toronto and though I wasn’t able to attend for the whole weekend, I attended the gala on Sunday night! (read about last year’s experience HERE). The dress code was formal black-tie attire so I turned to JJ’s House to hook me up for the occasion! I ordered a bridesmaid dress from them for a wedding I was in back in March (see HERE), and had SUCH a positive experience with their custom sizing, that revisiting their site was a no-brainer for me.
Ordering is simple enough and pricing is extremely reasonable! For us tall girls the ‘Custom Size’ option is an absolute godsend. Actually I’d say for women in general, this option is amazing. If you’re in between sizes, which so many women are, this feature gives you the option to get every part of the dress tailor made to your proportions, including length! Instructions on where/how to measure are included right on the page so you can’t get it wrong. There IS an additional fee for getting a dress made-to-order like this, BUT IT’S ONLY AN ADDITIONAL $20. I find this insane. You can’t even get something hemmed for that price here in the city lol..
Turn around time for both dresses I’ve gotten so far from them has also been extremely reasonable. I’m pretty sure it came in like 2-3 weeks (I should have kept track, I’m sorry). That being said, I would never recommend leaving dress shopping for an important event until last minute… Regardless, I was SO stoked that I wasn’t waiting months, nor was I breaking the bank, for a custom fit dress.
I definitely turned up the sex appeal and channeled my inner Jessica Rabbit with my dress this time around, and honestly couldn’t be more happy with the outcome! It was absolutely perfect for the event. Maybe next time I won’t just LOOK red carpet ready, I’ll actually be ON the red carpet 😉
So far my orders from JJ’s have been 2 for 2, so you better bet I’ll find an excuse to order from them again in the future!!
