William Riera USA {Review & Giveaway} High fashion dresses and accessories

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

Sometimes I catch site of myself in the mirror before we head out the door and it's really not all that impressive. Jeans and a t-shirt again? Or is it a tank top and yoga pants today? Then I sigh and think that at least my kids usually look presentable.

For me to wear anything other than my standard mom uniform, however, I have high standards as to what that clothing looks and feels like. I want high fashion, classic styling and extreme comfort at an affordable price. I want to still look like me... just better.

To find that all in one place, now I know that I don't have to look any further than the gorgeous designs of William Riera USA.

Sketching clothing since the age of 12, William Riera knows fashion. After his many years of experience, his time at fashion school and having worked with clients from all over the world, one visit to his website and his attention to detail and dedication to high quality are immediately evident. And then the Chloe dress arrived and I was able to see that William Riera USA really is a step above the rest.

The description of the Chloe reads as "Blue jersey empire waist dress with gathered faux wrap neckline. Button details on waist band and sleeves. Short sleeve," but that doesn't even begin to explain how great this dress is. The fabric (washable!) is soft and flowing and feels silky smooth on my skin and even though I have worn an empire waist dress before, this one just seems to understand exactly where to cling and where not to in order to flatter a woman's figure.

I love the addition of the buttons, as they somehow add just the right touch to the already-cute sleeves and the well-placed waistband. Needless to say, this dress fits extremely comfortably and by adding a camisole underneath, I felt perfectly covered with just a hint of sexiness from the faux wrap.

Add some diamonds or pearls and a pair of heels and the Chloe is plenty sophisticated enough for a special occasion, but slip on a pair of flats with a ponytail and I'm ready to bring my daughters to the library with no problem. Combine the versatility, fit, style and quality of this dress and it's no wonder that William Riera has fans far and wide.

If gorgeous dresses weren't enough, there is also a line of William Riera USA necklaces that are just as stunning. From large and chunky pieces that really make a statement to elegant pearl and stone combinations that are timeless, any item from the jewelry collection would perfectly complement the beauty of a William Riera USA dress.

With a commitment to high quality, high fashion and flawless tailoring, William Riera dresses and accessories are stylishly attractive while still affordable enough to not break the bank. Right now his line of great dresses that are regularly $53 - $57 are on sale for $45 - $48 and almost all of the necklaces are discounted to $18 - $30. Looking chic while saving money? I couldn't ask for a better reason to leave my jeans at home and head out looking good and feeling confident.

Thanks to the generosity of William Riera USA, one person will also get to experience the true fashion of these wonderful designs, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of any William Riera USA
dress or accessory!
