This dress is astonding. It is elegant and beautiful. The long sleeve make the dress a little warm, but nothing overbearing. Very elegant. I would love to find out what other dresses are made by this designer as the dress is perfect, classy and sexy in the right way!!
First time the wrong color - gray -was sent, even tho order form and pack slip said blue. Called, got free return and expedited shipping of correct dress, except someone sent it UPS ground so it cut my event date very short to get shoes, etc. This is thin jersey knit with a very lite lining, and still needs a slip if worn in daytime, outside, etc. True for both colors. I could have gone a size smaller, the waist is not fitted, hips were cut wide and "puckered" on seam at widest point, NOT flattering. The heavy metal full length zipper pulled the lite material where it buckled in the back pulling away from the neck and waist. This fabric snags if you look crosseyed at it, wear gloves. The blue color was very nice multicolor pattern, with black sleeve and collar accents and rhinestones, but just not the right fit for me.
First, the dress is not lined despite the description saying is it. Second, it runs really big. For 32DD/5'6"/130lb, size 8 that was shipped to me instead of ordered size 6 looked about two sizes too big. With no lining, the fabric is too thin and cheap looking, it is see through on a blue dress, and one can see what color of undergarments are worn. The seams bulk-up relative to thin fabric, and there is a lot of them in wrong places. Disappointed. Not sure what others liked.
I LOVE THE DRESS DESIGN. BUT, I DON'T LIKE THE FABRIC. NOT BECAUSE OF THE DIFFERENT PATTERNS (THIS IS SO IN) BUT THE WEIGHT OF THE FABRIC. IT IS VERY FLIMSY. THE DRESS HAS SOME FUN DETAILS, BUT THE GOLD METALLIC BAND AT THE WAIST MAKES THE DRESS LOOK VERY VERY CHEAP. IT IS SORT OF PAINTED ON. THIS BAND SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE SAME RHINESTONE DETAIL AS THE SLEEVES AND SHOULDERS ON THE DRESS. I WILL KEEP THE DRESS AND ADD A GOLD BELT TO COVER THE MISTAKE. I LIKE THE DRESS DESIGN BECAUSE I CAN SEE WHERE I CAN ADD SOMETHINGS TO ENHANCE THE LOOK. OTHERS MAY NOT. THE RIGHT SHOES AND THE RIGHT JEWELRY WILL MAKE THIS DRESS A HIT AT THE RIGHT OCCASION.
