Not as pictured
I just got this dress today in the mail and was planning on wearing it to my college graduation next week. I fell in love with this dress (the forest color) when I first saw it online. I thought it was a little expensive, but since it was for my graduation, I went for it and bought it the other day. When I first pulled it out of the package I was disappointed because it was not AT ALL the same color as pictured. The picture shows a contrasting top part to bottom and this dress is all the same color as the skirt part. Its still a very pretty dress, but not what I was expecting and excited to wear. It is also very long, but I am also 5'4''. Im not sure if I will keep it or not because of the length, unless I can hem it or find someone who can. In addition to it being long it is also very exposing on top. I only wear a 34 C and I feel like I am falling out of this dress. Overall, pretty bummed that this was not what I was expecting. :(
a more relaxed look than shown
I ordered this dress as a possible prom option and although it is very pretty, it just wasn't right for the following reasons: 1. the fit: I ordered the smallest available hoping it would fit (I am a US size 2). In fairness the sizing chart indicated the smallest Euro size would translate to a 4 and it was definitely too loose. 2. the style: the embroidery at the top is not as refined as it appears in the photo and the elastic back is very stretchy. I doubt you can achieve this very fitted look as it's shown without the stylist trick of pulling and clipping it in place for the photo. It is a really pretty dress and the gauze skirt moves really well... just not refined enough for a more formal event! Also not for a size 2 or under!
