Review: Noori Dresses

A few weeks ago I was asked if I'd be interested in reviewing a dress from an online dress shop called Noori Dresses.  Noori Dresses is a designer boutique dedicated to little girls and preteens. They specialize in high end special occasion dresses. 99% of all their dresses are made in USA. They have a great selection of Easter, Baptism, First Communion and Flower Girl dresses. They offer free shipping for $100 and more.   Their story starts in 2007 when they were looking for a good christening dress for their daughter.  When they could not find a good one for a reasonable cost, they decided to sew it themselves. Friends and relatives loved the dress and some of friends requested them to sew for their daughters as well. Within 5 years a hobby turned into one of the top retailers for kids' special occasion dresses in the US.

I do a lot of clothing shopping online, but I tend to be very skeptical when it's a company that I'm not familiar with.  I had looked around on the website for Noori Dresses and was impressed with the selection of First Communion dresses they had.  Here are some of the communion dresses I liked best:
You can find this dress here.
This one is so simple, but so very pretty.  You need to click on the link to check out the sweet detail above the box pleats.  
I like this dress, too.  It's very sweet and has nice detailing on the top.
If a sleeve is something you must have on a communion dress, this is a lovely option.

Looking at all the communion dresses had me wishing Katie was preparing for First Holy Communion, but we're a few years away from that, and I felt it was really important that I chose a dress that she could wear now for the review.  No one wants to look a pictures of a dress that won't be worn for about three more years, right?  So Katie and I looked at all the pretty dresses they had to offer and we found a very sweet dress that is perfect for Easter.

As soon as I took the dress out of the box Katie was oohing and aahing over it.  She wanted to wear it right away.

Since Easter is in March this year, we can reasonably expect it to be chilly on Easter since we live in NJ.  So I ordered Katie a cute little sweater shrug to wear over the sleeveless dress to keep away the chill.

The dress is very nice quality.  Everything about it seems to be well made and it's even made in the USA!  I feel like finding an American made garment is very difficult these days, so I was very happy that it was made domestically.  The organza material for this dress is very nice both in design and weight.  It's not super flimsy like other organza dresses that we've had in the past.  I feel pretty confident that this dress won't start snagging if you look at it the wrong way like some organza overlays seem to do.

Overall my experience with Noori Dresses was a good one.  I'm happy with how quickly they shipped from across the country, I'm happy with the quality of the dress and most of all my daughter is very happy with her beautiful new Easter dress.  I'm sure we will think of them the next time we are looking for a holiday or special occasion dress.
