BEAUTIFUL embroidery on this dress, looks just as pictured! The cut-outs are strategically placed and the neckline/shoulders are cut expertly to give a slimming finish. The overall effect is complemented by the delicate mesh embroidery and detailing - very flattering. I tried on the ballet in-store, but suspected the front petals/scalloped finish may look a bit raggedy/crumpled after a few hours of wear...and therefore ordered the black. (Also because I feel the cutouts and neckline look more striking in a darker shade!) It's a lovely soft black that looks amazing against pale skin, and due to the darker shade, can be dressed up or down for a vampy, angelic or everyday look :) I recommend buying based off your bust measurements, since the waist can be cinched to your preference using the gather-tie in the waistband. Size 0 was perfect, fitting nice n snug in the bust panel (32A-24-34, 95 lbs 5'3). While the material is really lacking for a $250 dress (rayon and cotton...really?), it's a beautiful piece nonetheless.
