"i just received this in the mail and tried it on today. wow, its beautiful. i bought my usual xs in the granite color and it is amazing. even my boyfriend was aghast. first of all, the texture and feel is unlike anything i won from fp. its really soft and feels good on the skin. love the pattern also. the fit of this is also perfect. it is body and curve hugging and then flares out at the back. everything about this dress is beautiful, my only issue is the length. i am 5'1 and this is insanely long on me. i can fold it over in the back towards my feet and end up stepping on it plus having about 5 inches of extra fabric, so yeah, this is seriously, seriously, long. i was really hoping i would be able to get it hemmed, but looking at the fabric i'm just not sure. this is not an appropriate length dress for petites, i'd say you probably have to be at least 5'8 in order to pull this off. what a shame, its beautiful, and i really hope that i can find a way to pull this off without 8 inch heels. stunning, just not for the short ):"
