I received this dress in the mail a few days ago and it is simply gorgeous. I must admit that I was rather nervous ordering such a pricey piece via Internet without seeing it in person or trying it on. I immediately fell in love as soon as I opened my package. The dress is 100x more stunning than the picture allows. The fabric is a nice blend of cotton, silk, and a bit of tulle embellishing the trim of the dress. There is beautiful embroidery work all throughout the dress as well as ribbon detail. The bodice of the dress is GORGEOUS with it's embroidery work and attention to detail. I agree that it is a bit "itchy" to the skin and could cause some irritation but I'm willing to suffer! I love that the bodice can be worn either off the shoulder or in the traditional sense. The dress looks superb paired with a denim jacket and sandals as well as my cropped brown leather jacket and flats--very versatile. The dress is super flowy so if you are not into that look then I would be cautious. I personally love it. My only complaint about this piece is that the uber tiny snaps on the side do not stay snapped. As a previous person already mentioned the snaps do come undone rather easily without the dress "pulling." Luckily I know how to sew so I will be addressing this issue myself but must admit I was a little bummed about the quality of the snaps considering the price of the dress. Other than the snap issue I would HIGHLY recommend this dress. It's just simply whimsical, magical, and all things pretty!

This dress is even more beautiful in person than in the photo. The details on the chest, the fabric and the layers create a unique piece of art. I strongly recommend it!

I purchased this dress as soon as it was released in the summer. I am 5'5', have an athletic frame and measure 38-26-36. My typical FP dress size #due to my bust measurement# is an 8. I ordered the 8 in this dress and found it TTS. I would recommend the size 8 if you have a bra band size of 36 or 38. It is VERY roomy below the bodice, so those who do not like dresses that flow away from the body may find the amount of volume overwhelming. The elaborate detailed bodice #which the pictures cannot do justice# falls right at the top of my breasts, causing the dress to fall from the largest part of my body. Regardless of how "maternity" the shape could be considered, I still find the dress beautiful. Clothes don't always have to show off my waist and hips to look great. I personally don't relate to reviewers who require every piece of clothing they buy to flatter their curves. Sometimes a piece is stunning in its own right and this is one of those pieces. The eyelet is so soft and intricately varied. It and the two layers of silk chiffon lining flow perfectly. It floats around your body..you will want to twirl! This more than any FP piece I have ever purchased has the feel of a runway piece. I can't imagine ever seeing someone else with the same dress. I especially like the tiny touches of neon citron woven into the bodice and hand whip stitched along the top of the crochet trim of the skirt. I adore the personalized tag with the designers signature and the number my dress is of 78 total dresses. I did run into a few issues with the dress that made me think long and hard about keeping it. Like the other reviewer, I find the bodice to be very heavy and itchy. The metallic threads and raw edged stffl mesh irritate my skin. I will have to line the bodice with a softer fabric before wearing it. I also have a seriously flawed section in the embroidery right below the bodice. It is not that noticeable if you are not looking for it, but it bothers me because I know it is there. The sewing machine missed embroidering a bunch of flowers, so instead there is just knotted threads with no definition. It looks like there is a grey mark on the dress in certain light. I just love the dress so much that for now I have decided to keep it hanging in my closet since there are no other size 8's to exchange it for.

This dress is amazing!! I got a 10 and it fit beautifully. The fabric is soft cotton that is flowy and covered in beautiful embroidery. The pieced together fabric with the neon stitching gives this dress the perfect amount of deconstruction so it is not too sweet. The dress is ethereal and lovely and not too sheer, though I would wear nude undergarments. It is lined with 2 layers of silk chiffon. The beaded bodice is intricate and fantastic. Now, I detracted a star because the beaded neckline, though beautiful, rubbed my underarms raw. I put on the denim vest to help with the rubbing and it looked amazingly cute styled with a waist belt and boots. Another reason I took away a star is because the snaps on the side DO NOT stay snapped at the bust-line (at least on me). So, I sewed in 4 more hook and eyes between the top snaps. After that, the side stayed closed up nicely. Beautiful, wonderful, magical dress.
