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.
I ordered this dress for NYE, and it was everything I hoped it would be! I am always an XS in Free People, and I've found that For Love and Lemons runs large on me, so I was very confident in ordering the XS. After reading some of the reviews, I started to worry that maybe I should have ordered the S. However, the dress came, and the arms were just slightly tighter than I would have preferred, but I am so obsessed with this dress. I can't wait to wear it again. I am just under 5'4", about 115lbs, and the XS was the right choice! The length was great, it looked amazing on, and I was able to dance, etc. I could go on and on about this dress. Highly recommend!
Sleeves way to small...
I order this dress with the intention of wearing it to a school dance. I have orderd and worn dresses from Free People before and usually wear a size small, so that's what I ordered. When I got the dress it came in two pieces, dress and slip. First thing I didn't like was the color, it is a lot brighter then the picture, also the zipper is a lot more noticeable then shown-- it is a long gold zipper down the whole back. When I tried the dress on everything fit well except the sleeves were so tight I couldn't even bend my elbow or lift my arm. I would not recommend getting this dress....
I was very excited to get this dress in the mail, however, when I tried the dress on I noticed the sleeves were very tight. I normally wear an XS so I ordered an XS and it fit perfectly everywhere else, but the sleeves were way too tight. For a dress that I paid so much money for I did not expect to see that the stitching on the side of the dress (on the seam) was not in tact. There was also a hole in the lace near the messed up stitching. Other than that the dress was beautiful, I really wish they paid more attention to the details on the lace for the amount of money that was paid.

Sleeves way too small
I am 5'4", 115 lbs, and almost always wear an XS in Free People clothing, or occasionally a small. After reading other reviews, I decided to order a small in this dress. It fit everywhere except the arms. The slip and lace part of the dress were even a bit too big around, but the sleeves were way too tight. I couldn't even get the dress all the way on. This has never happened to me before, I have pretty slim arms and have never had a problem fitting them into anything. But my arms would have had to have been skeletal to fit in this dress. Since other reviewers have not had this problem, it could have just been this particular dress, but unfortunately I do not have time to order another one and will have to return it. All other aspects of the dress were as expected, except it is a bit more purple than is shown in the pictures.
I was expecting to love this dress based on the photos. However, after trying it on, I sent it back. It comes as an inner slip and detached lace overlay. The slip was super tight and short and the lace overlay fit kind of baggy on me. It was not tailored in the waist and had no stretch. I am 5'4" and 105 lbs and ordered XS.
Perfect summer dress
What I love about this dress is that you can wear it without the slip underneath and create a whole new look. I plan on wearing it with briefs and a matching bra for a more risque look. But the long sleeves keep it from being too bare. Very high quality dress, the zipper in the back goes all the way to the hem which makes it unique. And the purple color is vibrant. I find that For Love & Lemons dresses do run small and this one is no exception. I would recommend sizing up.
