I bought this dress at the store in "Sea Glass" for my prom. It looks even more beautiful in person. The gold flecks are bit more noticeable, in a good way, and the tulle of the dress will hide any flub on your stomach (if you, like me, need that sort of thing after eating). I have a pale complexion, and I was scared it would not mesh with the coloring, however, it seemed to work perfectly. I'm 5'4" and this dress did not overwhelm my frame although I will need to hem it. I'm normally a size 2 but a 0 fit perfectly.
Another reviewer stated that the color of the dress differed from the picture, however, it looks exactly the same to me.
I would recommend this dress for any occasion.

Looks better online
I ordered this dress for my 7 bridesmaids who are all different sizes ranging from a size 0 to a size 18. It was a tough search to find a dress that looks flattering on all of the girls. I loved this dress the second it hit the site, and placed my order in the seaglass color. The color in person was not what it looked in the picture. The color did not photography well when I had the girls try it on. The dress only looked best on the thinner, taller girls but made everyone overall look larger than they were. I was very sad to return this dress.

I'm really impressed by this dress and BHLDN in general. I ordered this dress in Cameo Pink for my wedding dress. I've tried on a million dresses from other places and couldn't find anything that I liked. I emailed their stylists about the color and they were super helpful. I was worried it would be too pink-y. I decided to order the dress and try it out. I chose the standard shipping method and it was on my door 2 days later.. I was incredibly surprised! It fit perfectly and the color is gorgeous. It is more of a dusty rose color with gold thread in the bust than a bright pink. It was much more flattering of a color on my skin than all of the white and ivory wedding dresses I had tried on. Also the optional straps included make the dress super versatile. They can be attached in a number of ways to totally change the look of the dress.
While I normally order a size 2, according to the size chart I was exactly a size 0 which I ordered. It fit perfectly and the only alterations it will need are shortening the hem.
I would definitely recommend this dress. I'm still waiting on the Camille topper to go with it, but I'm sure it will be just as gorgeous.
