FP New Romantics Captured Sunshine Dress
I received this dress in the mail and not only did it have a tear in it but also major snags.
Someone must have worn it or tried it on near a barbed wire fence.
It was a lovely design but trashy so, I quickly returned it to FP.
Beautiful and Well made
This is so beautiful. The second i saw it on sale i knew i needed it. And when i went to my local FP to try it on, I bought it on the spot. Im nearly always an xs in FP so i tried on the XS and it fits beautifully. It looks just like it does in the pictures. Its well made and the bodice is stunning. Its very flattering and I'm not afraid that it gas me at all like some of the other reviewers mentioned. I saw what the dress looked like and liked the look. its not grandmotherly at all. The top is sheer so i wear a stick on bra with it. I'm having and outdoor wedding (you know bare feet, sunshine, the whole thing) and this is my dress for the ceremony.) its simply beautiful.
This dress has a older look to it. Due to its thick straps and longer length it looks very mature. Given that I'm 19 it seemed to age me a bit, so I sent it back. But it is very flattering since it is tight on the top and then flows down. The top reminds me of a corset, it just appears to make the upper portion of the body to look narrow. Love the dress, just wasn't for me.
it is exactly as shown... I love this dress! It is ridiculously sheer but thats clearly shown in the pictures. This dress is floaty and dreamy!
I've been eying this dress up for a while online and then found it today at my local Free People store. I'm so happy that I came across it because I was worried about the fit of the top portion of the dress and was so happy to discover that it fit perfectly. It is stretchy in the back and can accommodate any chest size. I love how the waist line points down. It is super feminine. One thing I did notice is that even though it is lined it is still pretty see through at the top. So I recommend layering it with the white eyelet bra that Free People has online underneath. Also, they don't show on the website that you can actually wear this two different ways or possible 3 different ways. The straps can go around the neck as seen here but they also can be draped down and tied at the back through the loops back there. There is enough fabric to even cross them. As for the color, it is slightly off white and kind of creamy colored. The drape of the skirt is so flowy too and looks beautiful on. Its already 100 degrees here in Texas which makes this perfect to wear to any dress up event.
