For Love & Lemons
Derived from those sun-soaked "Lemonade Stand Days," designers, owners, and BFF's Gillian Mahin and Laura Hall are the masterminds behind For Love & Lemons. Based in Los Angeles, the collection is anything but conventional. For Love & Lemons is a brand for that girl who doesn't follow trends, she makes them.
Loving this dress!!! The print is so pretty and it has little orangey/red petals in the print that add a nice pop! Love me some For Love and Lemons, in general, but this one is a real showstopper! Fits like a glove.
I got the medium in the blue sand and for love and lemons does it again! This dress is exquisite in cut and design. Although the dress is sheer, it i has a very short slip built into it. However, due to the high slits a nude or flesh colored pair of biker shorts are required in my opinion. The dress is adjustable and is rather fitted in the mid section which might seem tight if you carry a bit of weight there. the back ties for a more accentuated waist line. FYI I am 5 feet 5 inches and my dress drags a bit on the floor. Even so, I would have found a small to be too tight in the midsection. The dress is a sheer, flowing, lovely fabric that has flowers so blue they stand out a mile away, just as the photo shows.The color is truly a sand color, no other way to describe it. Overall, for the price a definitely a splurge, but a satisfying one at that!!!
Lovely summer dress! Easy breezy glamour.
This is a very cute and lively dress for the warm summer days. I'm about 5'2-3" and around 110lbs and the dress just hits the floor on me. I usually get a size 2 or XS, or a European 6. In a heeled shoe, no adjustments required. In flats I might take the dress up by an inch or two to avoid stepping on the center panel when walking. It is a pull on style with no zippers and looks good in motion. There is a tie in the back that will cinch the dress closer to your figure once it is on. The straps also adjust at the shoulders, which is a huge plus in getting the bust seams in just the right place. The nude shade appears just a touch deeper than in the photo, though is still lovely. The blue flowers are a little less manganese blue in the lighter areas of the petals in the photo. (It has just a tiny drop more ultramarine tone in the flower color) The satin nature of the flowers on the matte sheer fabric is a very nice contrast. It has an "appropriate" glamour in the sun (not that I am one even barely shy to sparkle some sequins in the sun, hey that's what it is for!) — Take a walk in this dress on a beautiful day and you will not go unnoticed :-) The under layer slip fits nice and does not extend below the side slits. On a breezy day, I might pair this with a natural tone cropped length cocoon style soft sweater. A necklace (which I am making) using faceted peach moonstone, and iolite (or sapphire) could up the impact even further. Enjoy!
I ordered this online and was super sad when I tried it on - i ordered the xs - i am 5'3 and like 107 - and it was huge! like everywhere and it was waaay too long. also I thought the fabric looked really cheap and there's like a slip that you can't really tell exists on the model but that stops at a sort of awkward place on the dress especially considering the long slits
