Great Dress, Terrible Smell
I purchased this dress because I loved the unique look to it. When it arrived I almost gagged when I opened the box, I immediately knew it was from the dress bag and box. It smelled like gasoline! It filled my whole apartment with the odor. I threw the box and bag in the garbage and hoped the dress would air out. After several days I could still smell the gasoline odor on the dress; it went back the next day.

Even more beautiful than the pictures
This dress is phenomenally beautiful! The fabric genuinely looks like a dress that your grandmother could have worn, but in the best possible condition. I absolutely loved the look of it, however, didn't want to wear a sleeveless dress. I had my amazing seamstress, Alcora Gardner, use some of the extra fabric (and there was plenty of extra to take from the tiers) to create cap sleeves. It really transformed the dress. I couldn't have been happier. I was particularly happy to have the sleeves when I underwent the last minute unexpected weight loss that left the bodice a bit loose on the wedding day.

Perfect vintage beachy feel
I searched forever for the perfect dress, not too formal, not too casual. This was the one and only dress I ordered from BHLDN and LOVED it! I'm 5'10" and ordered a size 8. Even with my 3" heels I had the dress taken up a small bit. I also purchased a BHLDN sash, but can't remember the name. I've never received more compliments than I did while wearing this dress, amazing!

I felt very special in this dress!
I bought this dress in the LA BHLDN store. I usually wear a size 6-8 in dresses but this dress I had to order in a size 12. I'm bigger on top than on the bottom so I think that had a lot to do with it. I had to tailor it shorter, which was no big deal. It was slightly bigger than I needed but a size 10 would not fit and I figured with undergarments it would fit fine. But it was still a bit large. Overall, I loved the dress. It was gorgeous and at a price that I loved. I paired it with a belt and bracelet that I purchased from BHLDN as well.
