This dress is much too short (I am 5'7") and cannot be let down. Therefore I will be returning. However the beading is beautiful as is the color. I feel the skirt is not as flowing as I expected. Follow the instructions as to sizing!! I wear a 12 -14 and ordered a 10. Except for the length it fit well. This dress is well made and I would have kept it but for the length.

Have a formal event to attent in Sept. and didn't want to spend a lot on a new dress. This dress filled my expectations both in price and size. I am short so nearly everything needs to be shorted, but my alterations lady did an excellent job. Very elegant looking on. Wasn't sure about the draping off the shoulder, but like the look when wearing. My husband likes it and he's not easy to please. Excellent choice. Can't wait for the event.

I liked the dress but had to return it because the sleeves were not long enough. I would recommend adding a description about the sleeves.

This is a very sheer dress, with a handkerchief hem, but the lining of the dress was WAY to short. I couldn't wear a slip under the dress, and it was a bit uncomfortable having quite so my of my legs showing through (I do not have nice legs)

This dress is made for a lady with a long torso. I'm short ( under 5 ft). And the detail in the back did not fit my body type. But the dress is beautiful! Sad it didn't fit me.

I really liked the dress but definately feel it need to be on someone taller. I am 5'3" and felt a little overwhelmed int he dress. I knew I would need to hem it , but still I just wasn't right for me. However, I do think it would be quite flattering on the right person and would make a wonderful dress for travel. It was quite comfortable on, wrinkle-resistant, and would be easy to pack.

I liked this dress but decided I did not like the short sleeves, at least on my. I tend to like long sleeves but I ordered this just to see how it would look.

Lovely dress, fit perfectly. I am busty and it still fit and was flattering! But alas, I had to return it. I am 5"4" and over 40. I cannot wear a dress this short. Had expected it to hit below knee as in photo but only the very tips of the handkerchief hem hit my knee, so about 3-4" too short. If you are petite, this dress is for you!

I was initially disappointed when I pulled the dress out of the box... The written description of the fabric is accurate, but from the picture I expected it to be a bit silkier or chiffon-ier. It's basically just a stretchy fabric. But then I put it on, and it fit well and was very comfortable, if not as elegant as I was looking for. The straps worked well though and looked nice in the back, but the way the bust fit me made it look more like a casual beach cover-up than an elegant dress. Perhaps a strapless bra would have shaped it better on top. Ultimately, I ended up liking some things about the dress, but at 5'10", it was a few inches too short for me and I'll have to send it back.

I'm fairly tall, and this hit just above the knee-cap, making my legs look stumpy. I thought it was well-made, but sizing runs small, I would recommend this to a friend, but only if she's a size 0-2-4-6.

nice, delicate dress. I returned it due to the length being a tad too short.

My 14 year old daughter needed a black dress for her orchestra performances. It is a beautiful dress on, very comfortable and wrinkle free. After referring to the size chart, I decided to order her the Small. It fit her very well though the length was a little short. She is average height (5'6") and she will now need to wear flat shoes with her dress. Overall the dress is great and beautiful on and I am pleased with my purchase.

The quality of this dress is great. Once I received I couldn't wait to try it on however I am only 5'2 so it was extremely long. I did not send it back because I really liked it so I will have my tailor hem and make a few minor adjustments and I will wear it to my next affair.

I bought the dres sto wear to a formal dinner dance. I ended up wearing something different, but will definitely hang onto to this for a future event. I really like the length of the dress, it's not too short like many of the dresses today.

This is a lovely dress...and would look stunning on someone who is tall and thin...I am on the short side and very curvy so it does not fall right at all, too bad, it's really an elegant dress for a wedding or evening event.

Ankle boots, or booties, are a versatile fashion option. They can be worn with a variety of outfits for many different occasions, from a lavish dinner at a four-star restaurant to a company party. Pick out evening-appropriate women's ankle boots that add flair and class to your outfit by following a few simple guidelines. Try embellished booties for a trendy look. Women's booties embellished with chains, big buckles, laces and buttons can work great when paired with a short skirt. The exact embellishment you choose is up to you, but no matter what, these extras will lend an edgy touch to your evening outfit. Match the color of your embellishments with the tone of your jewelry for a truly polished, put-together look. Pair women's ankle boots with tights or wear them bare-legged, depending on the formality of the occasion. While black booties tend to go with anything, you can experiment with different colors of embellished booties to give your look a boost. Booties that are a little slouchy also look great with jeans or a skirt. Leather booties look great for every occasion. Leather booties work well for a classic, chic and monochromatic look. Booties without adornments, such as buckles, bows or chains, can be patent leather (for a dressy look), suede or faux leather. Leather booties can be matte or shiny and often come in lace-up styles as well. This works best when you want your style to be understated but still want to add sophistication to your look. Coordinate your ankle boots with your outfit or pick another color to make your clothes pop. Wear them with a knee-length skirt or paired with a pair of dark jeans. You can also wear them with a tunic and thick leggings for a warmer, comfortable look. Open-toe booties are stylish and fashion-forward. If you really want to try something different, give open-toed booties a try. These will lend the most edge to your look. Pair these with a short skirt in order to make them pop. If it's cold outside, you might want to wear these open-toed booties with a pair of matching tights to stay warm. These ankle boots work well for going out to a club or rock concert, but they can also complement a party dress or a pair of jeans for a dressier event.
