I received many compliments on the dress. I am 5'3" so it hit the ground with kitten heels (too old to wear stilettos) so if you are short, you may need to hem it. I didn't mind it being longer than the picture. Good quality and not too glitzy.
I rodered this dress due to the unavailability of my size in the store. The price was great. The dress is for my son's wedding in August. The dress is beautiful, and the length was perfect-I don't want to have to pay for alterations or wear very high heeled shoes. However, I am not sure it is THE dress for me. It fits very well, so I have ordered it in navy to see if I like it better than the mocha.
