Lovely-- so Grace Kelly
I got this for my fall wedding.
I have not tried this on yet because I am abroad, but my mom showed it to me in detail over Skype and it is BEAUTIFUL. It really does look better in "real life"-- the picture on the website does it NO justice to how great this dress is! I am such a detail person and I love the twists on the straps, the quality fabrics, the hem under the tulle, the crystal buttons down the side. My mom and I had a moment over it. It was pretty exciting!
The only thing I want to change is to add a little more pouf to the skirt. I want it classy and elegant, but a little fuller. I think having a seamstress add another layer of tulle under is an option when I have it altered, but really it might just need a slip with some shape.
Also, I love the belt, but I'm considering pairing it with a SLIGHTLY thicker, neutral light pinkish belt and matching Mary Jane heels. I found a belt I love over at the anthro website, but I'm waiting until I can go in and try it on all together.

This dress is gorgeous. I purchased it for my wedding in June, and am very excited at the quality. I am pear-shaped and I was worried about the lace on the top being dense and immobile, but it's soft and moves nicely. The fit is very flattering for a pear-shaped girl. The button detail on the side and the belt really make the dress in my opinion.

A dress for a great party.
I bought this dress as my wedding & reception dress (I only want 1 dress) for an outdoor, June, Farm wedding in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I love the length - I'm a size 8, 5'6" and it hits mid-calf, below the knee. Like the reviewer before me, I found this dress is much better on a person than on the rack/online. Needs a belt, but I'm not using the white one shown that comes with it.

Lovely, but poofy
I fell in love with this online and couldn't wait for it to show up, but in the end, it's not my dress. The tulle is quite poofy - I kept wishing there was one less layer. The metallic lace is really lovely, but it didn't work with my body type, which is a pear. I think it might be great on someone who is more square and wants to add some curves. But for curvy me, it just added bulk and made my lower half look much larger than it is. The quality seems excellent and the buttons down the side are perfection.
