Swingy silk trapeze mini dress with pleated high neckline. Tiny keyhole at nape with gold button closure. Fully lined. *By 8th Story
I shop sparingly at free people and felt compelled to review this dress. It is really bad. I was excited because the sale price seemed very reasonable for a silk dress. However, when I received the product, the self quality felt like poly crepe, very normal. Maybe it is silk, but I couldn't tell at all. It had static issues and kept clinging on to my skin. ( solvable, but just added to my disappointment with the quality) Very sad, I am going to return.
Not paying $250 for this kind of dress again ever!
I purchased this item because of the review that dress is a keeper! it's $250 and I am in need of a beautiful comfortable dress for my wedding anniversary tomorrow so I ordered this dress and paid for overnight shipping! The dress is ok and quality is ok, however, I thought at first that it was made inside-out, that there was some sort of defect in manufacturing because the shiny side of the fabric is the one that lines the dress and the outer layer is thin-ish. It looks nothing like the photo. The color is also not "cranberry-ish" but more of a merlot. Its a deep dark red. I will still keep this dress though because I have no time to look for a dress further. I would not pay $250 for this type of fabric again. Another thing I would like to point out is that, the outer fabric turns really dark with a drop of water, so for those whose armpits sweat easily, this dress would be very unflattering. This dress is very similar, in material, to the ones they sell at Forever 21. But the structure and construction of the dress is very good.
Palmer dress review
This dress is a keeper ! I chose 2 dresses for a party, the other choice was the market maxi- which I also did a review on. This dress is a keeper ! If you don't mind dry cleaning it, it's the perfect spring/summer piece. It's flowy, certainly sexy, & it's silk. It's of phenomenal quality- even is fully lined with a stretchy material that isn't too thick, & doesn't at all interfere with the spunk of this piece. Get it before it gets gone ! Hope this helps !
