Style: 31958390 Colour:

This dress is life
I only have one complaint and that's that I'm about 4 inches too short for the length. The beading is gorgeous, the silk chiffon is dreamy and the back is absolutely beautiful. If you have a short torso, the scoop in the back will fall to your uhh "butt cleavage" you've been warned. I'm 5'4, athletic build with a 26-27 inch waist 36D and the sz 6 fit me perfectly. The slits definitely aren't as noticeable as in the picture. I'm really happy with this dress and look for excuses to wear it!
I hated that I couldn't keep it
The blue, was one of the most beautiful blue color dresses with combination of gold beads!! I wish I could keep this dress, I ordered both size 6 and 8, I'm always size 6, but for some weird reason neither of the dresses I could get the zipper come up.. Idon't know if it was a defect or just too small for me... also it's very long and it's a shame to hem it since the bottom of the skirt is gorgeous!!
I have been scouring every bridal shop and online resource for a non-traditional wedding dress and was so excited to finally find this one. But, it was a HUGE disappointment. The photos are completely misleading. In person, the dress looks cheap and is definitely not worth the price tag. The material feels like you are wearing one of the parachutes you played with as a child and the color is such an unflattering shade of grey I don't even know what to call it. It could perhaps be compared to the grey shade that forms around the yolk of a hard-boiled egg. Definitely not the soft, off-white shade portrayed in the pictures. Almost as frustrating as the disappointment of being back on the dress hunt again was that there was an ink tag still attached to the dress so even if I had liked it, I still would have had to go into a Free People location to have the plastic tag removed.

I purchased and wore this dress to a wedding and it was amazing! The gown is really beautiful, a show stopper. I received many compliments and felt amazing in it. Here is a break down of my review: sizing: true to size. The band at the waist that goes around your lower back is definitely snug and has no stretch, but I wouldn't suggest ordering up. The top of the dress is relaxed and not at all tight but doesn't fall off the shoulders. I am quite flat chested and had a lot of room, I loved the way the dress fell. It is LONG! I am about 5'7.5'' and with a 4'' heel the dress was JUST a bit too long on me. I didn't have time to have it hemmed otherwise I would have. Details: The slits are not as high as the image shows. The beading is gorgeous and the back is quite low but not at all inappropriate. Definitely accentuates your bum! Quality: The first dress I ordered arrived with a damaged zipper that I would have had to have had repaired so I returned it and ordered a second. Because the dress was a bit long a lot of the beading around the hem fell off throughout the course of the evening and there is a hole in the chiffon that I will have to have repaired. Otherwise I was impressed with the quality of the bead work and the dress in general. If you're thinking about this, buy it. It is a head turner and you will love your evening in it!
I recently purchased this dress for my senior prom as it was the dress I have been in love with since it first showed up on freepeople.com. I couldn't wait to receive it in the mail and when I did I was a bit disappointed with the packaging. I was sure this dress, for all the money it was, would be in better packaging than just a basic plastic bag. I went to the cleaners to press the wrinkles out of it from the packaging and it was perfect after that, but I was still a little bothered free people couldn't bother with a higher quality package. The dress fit perfectly although I did order a size up from my usual size. Also, I am 5'9" and the dress length didn't bother me, but I would be careful if you are a little shorter because it may be a little too long. This dress was worth every penny and I am so happy with this purchase!
