Â by FPKaraK Hello Stevie Nicks!! :-)
Wow! I can not believe all the unfavorable reviews this got! considering it is sold out in stores and online, I can't be the only one who loved this! ;-)
Yes the dress is very "wide" at the opening and very "A-line". However this is meant to be this way. It is the style of the dress. the cut of this is very 60's. I absolutely love it!! I feel a lot of people don't "get" that some FP items are meant to be open and big, that is just the nature of the cut.
I did not even give this a second glance in the catalog. Honestly the B&W photo does not do it justice AT ALL. I saw this in the 5th Ave, NYC store and tried bother colorways on. It was so heavenly!! I am 5'6.5, 108lbs 32B - 24 - 34 and very narrow in the shoulders. I am always an XS in FP dresses. I did contemplate getting this in the SMALL beleive it or not for the length. I felt it was too short as a dress for me , esp if I lifted my arms at all. I do understand what some of the reviews were stating with the arms "pulling". Do to the ribbon detail in the arms, if you move to fast I could see maybe ripping them. However I personally am careful with all my clothing, esp FP stuff and esp. if I know the piece I am in is delicate. When I tried it on, I knew I had to own this. Anyone who is a "true" bohemian and loves 60's/70's style NEEDS this dress! Super Stevie Nicks! I decided to get the Mocha as it looked nicer against my skin tone and hair color. I was iffy about this even after I purchased it due to the price tag, but something changed my mind! What really made me decide to keep this was the "Lady of the Canyon" feature. I just loved how it was styled and I purchased the jeans featured in the look book a week prior! Def don't pass this up!! Colors are true to photo!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Freelovin Love it, but wish it fit a little tighter
I got this dress in the Mocha color. I absolutely love it. My only complaint is it is very big in the body. I am 5'8" about 140 pounds. I got the large because I have very long arms and wanted the sleeves to be longer, but I think the medium would have fit better in the body. I am keeping the large because the sleeves are long enough and because they seem to be out of the medium. Plus I think I can get it taken in if I decide there is just too much room in the body. I understand what the other reviewers are saying about the sleeves being attached to the body of the dress a little lower down, but that doesn't bother me in the least bit. In my opinion, that does not take away from the beauty of the dress.

I heard about this woman who shoplifted a 60" flat screen TV by hiding it under her dress. This must have been the dress she was wearing. It's big enough to conceal a washing machine, maybe even a SmartCar. From the photo, it appears to hang straight, but actually it's A-shaped, flaring way out at the bottom like a circus tent. SInce the sleeves are also wide and the shoulders droopy, it doesn't define any part of the body, and makes me look like the "Untold Secret" is about forty extra pounds. Too bad, because it's gorgeous on the hanger.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by HRKW Nice material, but way too big
Once again, the product I have received doesn't resemble the product pictured on the sales page. In the pictures, the piece appears more fitted, as if it were a simple straight drop tunic. But in reality, the dress is enormous and fans out in an a-line shape.
The material is beautiful, admittedly. It's very soft and very feminine. But the trim also doesn't stand out the way it does in this picture; I'm assuming they used some sort of lighting on it to make it do this. I'm also assuming she is wearing an extra small. I ordered a medium and it feels and looks like an extra large.
In the pictures, by keeping the model's hands down at her sides, they've managed to cleverly hide the way the sleeves bell out. They're actually very roomy.
In reality, this dress should be worn with super tall skinny boots to off-set the too-generousness of the dress itself. Otherwise, you may come off looking like you're either trying to hide something or you're about to conduct a seance. And if you don't like seriously bell-shaped sleeves, I would recommend against this one.

I was so excited to get this in the mail, it definitely exceeded my already high expectations! It's a gorgeous color and a very flattering cut. The details are beautiful. Another great thing about this dress is how versatile it is. I can pair it with jeans or leggings and turn it into a tunic or just wear it as a dress. Love it!!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by luvehorror Perfect for my pregnant tummy.
So I ordered this dress in a Large, hoping it would fit my belly (I am 6 months pregnant) and it did. It was longer in length because of the larger sizing, but that was fine by me. One complaint is that I ordered this dress in Ivory. In the picture it was bleach white. When it came it was Antique Cream. But I'm still keeping it. It's going to be worn for Xmas. Beautiful detailing. The sleeves are sort of tight, which is fine by me, because they aren't tight under the armpit. So it looks fitted through the arms, but you have room to breathe without being uncomfortable. I think the tightness is more than likely uncomfortable in a smaller size. Not in the case of the Large size. The larger size also makes the fabric on the bell sleeves longer. It's a unique piece that I will pair with black leggings and knee high boots.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by KarmaQueen Great Dress !!!!!!!
The fabric of this dress is very beautiful, I love the detailing. I ordered the dress in large and the fit was very roomy but flowed nice with the A-line style.. The bell sleeves are quite long. I also really liked the whole vibe of the piece, The only complaint would be that the color was quite abit different than the picture....... more of a yellowish cream but still very pretty.

I love this dress!! The look and feel of it are great. It hangs beautifully. I am a slender build and 5'11", so although it would be long enough for a dress on most people, it is a little short. However I paired it with skinny blue jeans and some heeled boots and it looked great!. It will look equally as good with leggings. A great piece that can be dressed up or down. Delighted with my purchase. Irish purchasers order through the UK website so you dont get stung for taxes and use EIRE as postcode.
