Delicate crinkly chiffon mini dress featuring a pleated skirt and a V-neck beaded bust. Low back with adjustable strap detailing. Hidden side zip.
I tried this on in the store and like everyone else said, on literally all of the dresses in stock the beads were falling off. They were falling off as I was trying it on. I think I would buy it if it went on sale to justify having to sit there for hours meticulously sewing back on all the beads I could find/reinforcing them. The gold is soooo gorgeous, I wanted it really bad but couldn't justify spending that much on something that was falling apart.
This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I am almost always a size 4 and this dress in a size 4 fit perfectly. It is kind of delicate and I did have a few missing beads, but definitely not a notable amount. And if you have a simple pocket sewing kit it is an easy touch up to make. The bust is snug however does not offer much support, not an issue for my flat chest but it is a little bit more revealing on the side than shown in the picture so there is definitely no room for a bra. This dress is so flattering, the tightness around the smallest part of the ribs makes it look great on any figure! It is also a great length, not too short. Very much recommend! Also, I bought in shiraz and thought the color was just as beautiful in person!
Not a 'like'
I got this dress as a gift from my boyfriend for a holiday party. I'm 5'7" and wear a size 6, which is the size he ordered in the PINK color. The color didn't bother me like other reviews, I love almost any shade of pink/nude color. This Dress is adorable, very pretty on the hanger & in photo's, however the fit and quality isn't what it should be for the price. The empire cut is off & cup shape cut in a weird spot even adjusting the straps isn't going to fix a bust shape issue. The beads on the bust were off or falling off when we received it. I'm very sad because I was looking forward to wearing it :-( I don't think this dress should have been lined with jersey, it causes the bodice to collapse. I will be returning it sadly...
I was really disappointed with the purchase of the dress. It looks so beautiful online, but appears to be quite tacky looking in person. There were pulls already in the fabric on the bottom half of the dress (probably from it being folded in the box and the beads touching it), and the beads were loose and almost coming off on a couple of threads. The size fit fine, although the top chest area was too roomy and didn't fit properly. It was also VERY short. I'm 5'1 so I don't normally have that issue. Definitely not worth $250 at all.

Read the review before purchasing
The first thing Ive noticed is that beads were falling before I even actually got to try it on. So now i'm scared to wear it often. The color is definitely more orangey than the picture. I'm 5'2 and weigh about 120 and size xs fits me perfectly. although I love the dress and got many compliments, I would definitely recommend people to read the reviews before actually purchasing it.
Nice - But yeah beads are a problem
I will echo what other reviewers are saying. The dress is really darling, an interesting mix between playa and cocktail. I bought the 0 I am 5'1 95lbd B cup. I fought a little with the multiple strings but once adjusted correctly it fits nicely. Same word of warning as other reviewer, this is not for larger chest. The beading is a problem I barely tried it on there was already 2 beads on the floor... But... it is cute and unique... easy to wear for various occasions!
so pretty but missing beads..
I love this dress! I have it in peach. From far away, you can not see the missing beads, but it makes me sad I spent $250 on something I love from far away, but close up it is very noticeable how many beads are missing. The chiffon looks pretty good, but the top has many snags. I ordered a size 4 and there aren't any more in stock to exchange. Most of my Free People pieces are very well made/cared for. A few of them, including this dress, lack quality. However, this is a gorgeous dress and I really love the way it fits. Keep in mind it is a little short.

This dress is so so so so pretty! Like other reviews, the color is different from the picture. I would say it is a peachy / (very) nude. Also, maybe I was the only one, but I thought the beading was crystals? I was a little surprised when they were simply silver, plastic beads (with a lot missing on the dress!!!!). BUT, you can only tell this from inches away. From farther away they look very expensive and you wouldn't guess that plenty of beads were missing. I knocked off one star because of quality issues. Free people's quality has never been up to par... For me at least. So I wasn't utterly dissapointed. I ordered two different sizes and unfortunately both had lots of missing beads and quite a few snags on the chiffon. Let me just say you're not paying for quality here... But overall the dress is stunning, fits very well besides the fact it is VERY short (but that could be because I have very long legs), and is very easy to adjust which is awesome!!

SO GORGEOUS but not for larger chests
Wow! This dress is evening more stunning in person. It sparkles and the chiffon flows amazing! The only problem is if you are a petite girl with a large chest, this dress will not fit right... I am 5'3 usually a size 4 in dresses but because I wear a 32DDD I decided to order the 6 hoping for a little more chest space (I was going to wear this to a wedding so it can't be sexy).. The 6 is to big everywhere else and too small in the chest, it just looks odd:( So sad because this is probably the most beautiful dress I have ever seen. I def recommend this for anyone with average to small chest size.
