This is one of my best FP purchases EVER. The dress comes with all 4 ties knotted together, styled like the lookbook ft. Freida Pinto. However it is truly versatile, you can tie it like the model pics, unbutton to expose skin, wear it reversed - in fact it is styled backwards in the model pics - the description reads "Open back w/ two ties and buttons." Not only is the beading varied and rich in colour, but its tightly packed and feels expensive. As for the fabric, the previous reviewers were spot-on - it's not a print but actually woven into a batik effect. The weave is gorgeous in person, adding a really nice tonal depth and texture. Also I haven't experienced shedding or any snags so far, so I suppose I'm lucky to receive a pretty hardy dress.
The only caveat I have is how the buttons on the bodice differ from those below the waist. The former are smaller, thicker and of a nice weight (shell with a faux-wood finish), while the latter are larger, thinner, slightly lighter in tone and look cork-like.. It's kind of baffling really, the larger buttons look silly if you look closely enough and FP could've easily repeated the same buttons from the bodice. Stick to your true size as the waist is not elastic - I am a true XS/0 - 98 lbs, 5'3 32-24-34, and the 0 fit exactly as modeled, but I had some trouble getting it over my shoulders. Otherwise, this is a perfect marriage between ethnic details and a modern silhouette - I've worn this to dinners and casual outings alike, and have been stopped more times than I can count to ask where I bought it! Truly an amazing deal on sale, I would've happily paid the full RRP in a heartbeat.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by nnikkisunday Gorgeous but delicate and not as shown
This dress is actually quite beautiful and I was in general pleased with the quality. However, please take note that the cut is not as shown at all and those little chains hanging off the top do not exist on this dress. The cut is actually nearly as long in front as it is in back unlike how the picture shows it as being asymmetrical. It also does not have a fee neck top but buttons all up. When unbuttoned it does not stay nicely as shown in the photo. However, that said it is a very nice dress. Coloring and quality are beautiful. It is not stretchy so be sure to order your true size. This is true to size but this dress works better if you make sure it is a little loose on. If in doubt order up. I ordered my true size (for free people) and it worked perfect just a little loose but in a good way. One more note: the beading is very delicate and falls off easily. Within moments of trying the dress on I lost a bead. However, the dress comes with a whole bag of extra beads so they do account for this. Dress is not see-through and totally okay for wearing a bra... no issues there at all.

it says printed cotton dress in the description, but the pattern is actually weaved into the fabric. this, unfortunately, means that it can get snagged on things. my dress came with several loose and broken threads. itâs not worth the bother or the money to send it back for exchange so will fix them myself. the dress is, on the whole, lovely. i thought the material looked stiff in the pictures but it is actually surprisingly soft and flowing. fits pretty much true to size. i am sometimes a 0 but normally a 2 or xs. i bought the 2 and the waist is a tad looser than the pictures. take note that the waist is not elastic so there is no give and loosening the ties at the front does not enlarge the waist size. i havenât washed it yet, but hopefully the beads hold up. bonus: pockets.
