Style: 33807264 Color Code:
Floral printed soft jersey maxi dress, featuring a deep split neckline and V-back, each with crisscross strapping detail. Cinched waist, slits at hem, and long straight sleeves. Mini underskirt lining.
I saw this dress on the manikin in a FP store and immediately understood "It's mine" - you know, you feel this connections sometimes with the clothes :-) The dress is very bohemian! The print is significant and occupies 60% of the dress, so you don't need to overwhelm it with the jewelry or specific accessories (though I found a belt to make it a little bit more festive for a night out). The dress is easy to wear - you pull it on like a t-shirt. The top part of the dress is a little bit tricky - the cleavage is deep, and there's an open back, so mind your lingerie. As for the length, it's important to notice that this dress is made for petites! Luckily! :-) If you're really tall, this dress is "midi" for you, not maxi.
Welll....not so much
I ordered the blue and while the material is soft and comfortable, the fit is just not for me. The crisscross neck and back are very nice, but the bottom half is where the styling goes south for me. Might be my body type, petite and curvy. I think this would work better on a tall, lean frame. I agree with a previous review that the dress made me look more matronly and heavy than I really am. The gathered waist made me look dowdy. Sorry FP, this ones going back.
Just not quite ....
The previous reviewer is correct, that the material is comfortable, the print is lovely, and the back is pretty. However, the gathering at the waist makes the dress look frumpy, dowdy, and that's the last way that I want to look. I tried to use a beautiful FP silver belt but that didn't quite do it. I'm just not going to take this one to my tailor to redesign. It's going back.
This dress is truly beautiful on and off. I ordered the black and the red/green accents are just as vivid as pictured. I'm shorter in size and usually can't pull off long dresses because they make me look even shorter but I don't have that problem at all with this one. Also, It is probably one of the MOST comfortable dresses I've owned and the fabric is so soft. Highly Recommend if you are on the border of buying.
