"I'm going to wear this sweet little dress a lot, I can already tell! I was worried it might be too sexy, or maybe too gothic (I bought the black), but it really is just a flattering and romantic piece. I feel like a princess in it! I've worn it over the solid slip in blush, and that gives it even more of a feminine look. The waist is a little high, not like an empire waist but higher than I'm used to, but I love the look. It is true to the pictures, and the lace is soft and surprisingly durable. For size reference, the XS fit me perfectly, I'm 5"2 91lbs."
