Rated 4 out of 5Â by BriannaG Beautiful...but costume like.
I bought this dress because somewhere in a past life I was a Gypsy, so I envisioned strolling through a field with flowers in my hair - donned in eclectic jewelry...but this dress didn't quite hit that mark. It's beautiful - don't get me wrong. But it's not the elegant, carefree and flowy look I was going for. It's rather crispy in texture, and would seem like it would take several washings to soften it the way I would want it before I could ever wear it...but I have no idea how you could actually wash it - because it is so delicate and the gold stampings would definitely rub off in the wash. Unfortunately, this dress will not live in my closet.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by ona4000 Sad this didn't work out
Colors are brighter than shown, blue is more teal, but still dazzling. The bodice of size 0 seems very short compared to the picture (just fits over 32C like a bra,) and has a random salmon pink stripe down the center that doesn't quite work. Length was perfect for 5'9," just above the floor without shoes, but the short bodice makes it puff out through the midsection, not the way it looks on the model.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by AdorableMags Beautiful, but stiff fabric
This dress is beautiful in person, the colours really pop. I was slightly concerned that the bodice might be a smidgen too low for work, but it's very nice and flattering. The straps, although delicate looking are very solid.
The dress is well made and the fabric is lovely. The only issue is that (as noted in a previous review) the fabric is quite stiff, which causes the lines of the dress to be less flattering than they could be. The silhouette was a bit "circus tent-y" and I think that if the fabric was softer the dress would hang much better and be more flattering. If you're very slender, this may not be an issue for you, but as a size 10, I do carry some extra weight in my abdomen/hips. I'm going to have my mom (who is a tailor) look at the dress and see if there are some options for making the fabric more malleable, without ruining it!
I'm a size 10 and it fits TTS. I'm 5'4" and if I wear flats, I'll need to have this dress hemmed. It will be fine if I wear a slight heel though.
