What I Wore: Winter Hi-Lo

What I Wore: Winter Hi-Lo (TBags Los Angeles Printed Hi-Lo Tank Dress) - DivineMrsDiva.com

I love trying new clothing brands and sharing that knowledge with y'all.  Happily, my Gwynnie Bee subscription affords me the opportunity to try new-to-me brands and lots of styles and silhouettes I might not have the chance to try otherwise.  Of course, part of the fun is trying it on and sharing my experience with all of you.

TBags Los Angeles is totally new to me.  It looks like Gwynnie Bee only carries this dress from the brand, while the actual TBags website didn't seem to offer any plus size options. (Some online research says that the plus sizes were sold at Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale's, but they aren't carrying any pieces presently.)  UPDATE: Gwynnie Bee does have other items by TBags, they just didn't show up for me this morning for whatever reason.

What I can tell you for sure is that I liked the dress.  The hi-lo aspect was a little bit longer on me than on the model, which I felt hit at a better place on my body.  The material is a really silky-feeling poly/spandex blend that moves and flows nicely.  The pattern is a subtle one with a hint or orange.  It is a thinner fabric, so it would be ideal for warmer months.  To make it work for winter, I paired it with leggings, boots, and a jacket.

I am wearing a 3X in these photos.  While it was a bit big on top, it fit well through the hips and skimmed my curves nicely.  If you don't wear a belt or some other waist-accentuating tool, the dress could kind of swallow you up.  It was just a big A-line piece of fabric at first, but adding the belt made it so much better.

I've owned both of these jean jackets for quite a few years now.  In recent years, they haven't fit me very well.  The dark wash jacket is starting to be a little big, but I liked that I could tie it at the waist for a different look.  I do love how the darker wash goes better with the dress, but the fit of the smaller jacket looked better to me.  Still, I thought I would present you all with both looks.

  1. Would have never have given that dress a 2nd look until I saw this. Love how you styled it. As short as I am, not sure it'll work the same for me, but added to the closet to see :)

    Fwiw, GB has several TBags items. Not sure why nothing comes up when you click on the brand, but they do if you go through the search function: https://closet.gwynniebee.com/a/clothing/all-brands/brands-tbags_los_angeles

  2. Thanks for the head's up about other items by the brand. I clicked the brand name in the dress link a few times this morning and no other items came up. I will update my post about it too. Let me know how that dress works on you when you get it!

  3. While some of the t-bags stuff is cute, I was never impressed with the quality of the items...for example, there were a lot of unfinished hems, and if you're paying $200-$300 for a dress, it would be nice to have the hem and sleeves finished so they don't roll up and/or unravel. I do love the prints on their clothes, though.


    I think I like this better with the darker jacket...it picks up the color in the hem and makes the outfit more balanced, or something.

  4. Of course, I forgot to screen cap the price on this one. It was something crazy, which is why I love being able to try the stuff without committing to it. There are so many things I wouldn't pay full price for. I did think the quality on this was good and I liked the silky feeling fabric. It was all finished and hemmed and looked really nice. Again, I think it should probably retail for about $50 instead of whatever it was originally, but I am also cheap. lol I added some more items from the brand to my closet, so we shall see. I edited a bunch of photos for more outfit posts next week with one in particular that was priced at $200 and it was SO not a $200 dress.



    I agree that the darker color works way better, I just wish it fit like the lighter one. :-)
