Sequin Stash Dress
I love this dress, and plan on wearing it to prom! The only complaint I have is that the overlay arrived wrinkled. Do I just iron it? Could some BHLDN respond please? Thanks!

Beautiful confectionary dress!
I bought this dress for my at-home reception, an event for friends and family to celebrate my upcoming destination wedding. We're having a garden party which will stretch into the evening, and I've been scouring vintage dresses on Etsy for MONTHS searching for the perfect white chiffon cocktail dress. Well, to my surprise, this dress is the perfect fit for everything I wanted- and it isn't vintage at all!
It is simply beautiful, though. The sheer, demure top layer has a lovely look, and has that early 60's silhouette I wanted. The skirt is very full, and will be wonderful for dancing.The sequin slip below is clingy and subtly sparkly, and is visible especially when you move, but I would describe the chiffon overlayer as translucent rather than see-through. It's definitely got a serious "wow" factor, and is the most gorgeous combination of sweetness with just a touch of sexy. Such a beautiful little Betty Draper dress.
Size-wise, I am 34" bust, 27" waist, and 38" hips, and 128 lbs, and the 4 fit like a dream.
