Introducing a new addition to the most popular Chelsea Reece collection, The Journey dress in Rory. Beautiful, breathable, and accessible for everyone, The Journey dress is a more casual version of our classic dream dress with a few exciting changes. It’s perfect for adventures big or small, and reminds us that life’s not about the destination, but the journey along the way.

The Journey dress in Rory is regal, yet playful. Stemming from Celtic stories, it symbolizes noble and brave leaders that have existed throughout time. It also reminds us of a witty and bright Rory that has held a special place in our hearts since 2000. This dress encourages us to lead with grace and fearlessness. The striking green and blue tartan stands out in the crowd and is perfect for all seasons.

The Journey dress features a corset back along with a side zipper. The side zipper helps the dress maintain its shape, while the corset back can be adjusted to best fit your silhouette. The Journey dress contains synthetic horse hair netting (not from real horses) under the skirt to maintain its shape and allow for maximum twirl-ibility (in place of the crinoline lining featured in our Dream dress.) This change makes the dress not only more affordable, but also more practical for daily wear. 

The Journey has built-in bra cups, our classic four way stretch underskirt, and, of course, pockets. The dress is 100% polyester.

Our mission of making elegance and empowerment an essential through fashion will always be at the core of what we do. We are thrilled to be bringing this new, more accessible option to the Chelsea lineup that will hopefully allow even more people to feel beautiful everyday. 

Whether you are twirling through a provincial town or heading off for a great adventure, we hope you enjoy every step of the Journey.

So this dress was hard to get into. But i am wearing it. Im upset that there is a side zipper. I hate zippers. The whole reason i purchased this was because of the corset back i was hoping i could adjust it with the corset. The corset string is very thin and the fabric has no give. I love these dresses but was hoping for a functional corset back. The blue dress i bought was too big in the shoulders and i need to take it to a tailor. I went a size smaller with this and getting the zipper up was difficult. These dresses are pretty expensive and was hoping for like an amazing dress that fits/is adjustable without having to go to a tailor to fix this. I don’t do returns. I would like for you guys to have functional corset backs in the future please and no zippers. Because i do love the shape just really don’t like zippers—when i was thinner like 100lbs zippers were not a problem. They are a problem for plus size clothes because then you have to get it tailored to fit right.

Beautiful Dress!!!!

I absolutely love this dress! The corseted back feature really snatches me in and I love the flow of it. I also have a Dream style dress which I ADORE, but the Rory dress has more of a casual look that I feel more comfortable wearing on a normal day. I can’t wait to buy more! I’ve been trying to bring back feminine class into 2024 and I swear this is the way to do it with Chelsea Reece! Thank you so much!

Such a cute dress!

I love it and it fits great! The quality is superb and it's really comfy! Can't wait to order more dresses in the future.

Pretty Dress

Such a pretty dress! I already owned the holiday plaid so it was a no brainer to buy this one once it was released as I'm a sucker for plaid. I got my usual Chelsea size (4) and this one fit the same. Love brands that are consistent in sizing and quality!

Won’t Order Again but Great Dress and Fabric

This company ships via UPS. As an international customer I am fully prepared to pay for shipping and duty but UPS charges ridiculously high brokerage fees. I paid more for a brokerage fee than I did for duty owing. I will not be ordering again because of this.

The dress is very nice but my end cost including shipping, duty and brokerage fee over doubled the initial cost of the dress.
