Beads falling off
I loved the way the dress looked but the quality is not good. I haven't even worn the dress out and beads are already missing. It is so disappointing considering with the price you pay you expect quality.

This dress is GORGEOUS. However, the beads do fall off in surprising numbers rather easily. If I had paid the original price for it, I would have returned it, but for the sale price I am okay with keeping it and hand sewing the beads back on as I binge-watch Netflix :P . I would suggest putting the dress on and taking it off a few times to release the beads, that way you know the general area the beads fell so you can find them to sew them back on again. They do send a FEW beads with the dress, but not nearly enough.

Not worth it
Too expensive for dress quality. Came wrinkled and beads were already off. Ordered a size 2 and was too large but too short. Pretty from a distance but up close looks cheap .

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!
