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 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!!
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.
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.
I have never ordered clothing online before but saw this dress and decided to give it a try. The dress just slipped over my head (no zipper) and it fit perfectly! The product is correctly advertised ( except it is purple) and is a good value. I believe the dress is true to size and it looks very nice. I felt both elegant and comfortable!
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL DRESS! I SEARCHED HIGH AND LOW TO FIND A DRESS FOR MY SONS WEDDING. I PURCHASED A DRESS VERY SIMILAR TO THIS FROM A HIGH END FASHION STORE AT NEARLY DOUBLE THE PRICE AND THE BEADS WERE FALLING OFF! THEREFORE, I WAS HESITANT TO BUY THIS DRESS ON OVERSTOCK BUT MUCH TO MY SURPRISE IT EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS AND ALL THE BEADS ARE INTACT! THE ONLY PROBLEM I INCURRED WAS THE SIZE...I HAD TO EXCHANGE THIS SIZE FOR A SIZE SMALLER...BUT NO BIG DEAL...OVERSTOCK MAKES RETURNS EASY AND NOW I HAVE A VERY CLASSY DRESS FOR THE BIG OCCASION!
I received this dress yesterday and could not wait to try it on. It is for a formal Valentine's Day event. I LOVE it. It is elegant and beautiful. My only wish is that it came in a petite size, not because of the overall length which works with high heels, but because it's a little long from neck to waist resulting in a slight bulge of fabric in the back above the waist but don't let that stop you from purchasing it. I'm 5'2'' (with a short torso).
