This month I attended a tea party and preview to celebrate the Summer 2010 launch of British fashion label 'Lipsy' in the U.S. this month. Lipsy is already a favorite with U.S. celebrities and fashionistas, and is now available in select Bloomingdale's stores and online at

Lipsy is a young British fashion brand founded in the heart of London. Lipsy's core customer is ages 16-30, yet is definitealy appealing beyond age 30. The fitted, sexy, glamorous bandeau, strapless, chiffon and drape front dresses are just what I'm looking for in a party dress.

Lipsy Summer 2010 is all about tropical colors and prints. The tiger sequin jersey dress is a really standout piece. I am all about the fit and accentuating the waist, draping and embellishments so this collection definitely suits me. I think there is a style or print that appeals to everyone in this collection. I heard accessories will also soon be available at Bloomingdale's, including purses and shoes. I can't wait! Now since I'm a size 0 and the smallest size carried is a U.S. size 2, I'll have to see how small the fit is to see if I can wear a size 2 or not. It may require a little taking in and hemming but it would be worth it to wear a piece from this collection! If you are familiar with Lipsy, definitely let me know what you think!

  1. I just found these dresses in Bloomingdales in San Diego and was so pleasantly surprised by the fit, I posted a review on my blog. Then, after some sleuthing, I found your post and video!

    The fit is really good for us petite girls. Hope you don't mind, I posted a link to this post, as well as posted the video on my review. Great reporting! =)

  2. I don't mind at all - thanks for posting the link and the video. I love Lipsy London! I'm glad it's available at Bloomingdale's!

  3. FYI - I was just at Bloomingdale's today and tried on a few dresses in a size 6, which is lowest size they carry. The size 6 is equivalent to a size 0 - all the dresses I tried on fit perfectly!
