I needed a pretty dress quickly for a formal occasion and I liked the color and style on the picture and I placed the order even though the dress was among the most "pricy" ones. Later I noticed that in the description it was called a "modest" gown and was afraid it will be "frumpy" or an "old lady" dress. It is not so! It fits me perfectly, and the style is rather flattering, the skirt is slimming, the color is very fashionable and I felt good wearing it and received many compliments too. What I would change if I could that just have sheer sleeves without any decoration, leave the decoration just only on the bodice - it is maybe a little too much glitter for me. Thank you for the quick delivery, I got it just in time!
This is a beautiful dress (more purple than burgundy). Only one piece (looks like two) so it stays in place and requires less fuss. I only have 2 issues: 1) it has no zipper so you have to pull it over your head, which makes it a little difficult to take off, and 2) the skirt part is a little big. In order to get the size to fit my bust area, the rest of the dress hung a little wide around my tummy and hips. It was easy to alter though, because all seams are accessible. Looks great now! I also like that it isn't excessively long requiring real high heels. It seems to be a good length for short heels (I'm 5 foot 5 inches). I am pleased with the dress and the price I paid.
This is a truly beautiful dress. I purchased it for my daughter's wedding in Sept 2014. Everyone I have showed it to has raved about the cut, the lines, the color, the beautiful bead work. Can't wait to wear it to the wedding!! It is long, but hemming will be easy because it can be done at the waistline, under the bodice-- so the beautiful bottom hem will not be touched. I am not a woman who wears dresses- weddings and funerals only!!-- but this is a dress that makes me feel beautiful!!
I loved this dress the first time I saw it in a department store. I tried it on in the store and then went home and checked Overstock.com and found it for a much lower price. The beaded bodice is just the right amount of sparkle for me. I feel the uneven hem of the bodice is very slimming. It is a little hard to get off for me because it needs to go over the head. I actually ordered another dress but in the end my first choice was the right choice.
Love, Love, Love this dress! I purchased the plum/purple and the shade is a very dark, rich color. The dress just flows with every step. I received compliments all night long! I will wear this dress again, even though it was originally worn for my daughters wedding. I felt beautiful in this dress. It is lightweight even though the bodice is generously beaded. I do agree with the rating I read prior to my purchase in that, the dress has no zipper, and that was a drawback. I simply covered the bodice with a towel while putting on makeup and styling my hair, etc. This dress runs a size large possibly to allow for the stretch needed to pull on over the head and shoulders. It is still worth every penny paid! Love this dress!!
This dress is sooo stunning. After trying on mother of the bride dresses at a popular chain wedding store I was so frustrated! Nothing looked good as I am short and chubby. I saw this dress online at both Overstock and Dillard's. It was $100 more at Dillard's! I was leary about ordering it online and especially because there was such a price difference. When I opened the box I couldn't believe how beautiful it is and the fact that there was not one wrinkle in it. It was at my doorstep only 2 days after I ordered it. The only reason I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that there is no zipper in it and it is extremely difficult to get off. I have to take it to a seamstress to be hemmed so I'm going to see if she can put a zipper in it. I can't wait to wear this dress as it makes me feel much more attractive than any other that I tried on.
