Opalton Fitted Sash
This beaded sash is very pretty. It seems to be well-made BUT it did arrive to me missing an oval opal stone (seriously, is there no quality control?) . Fortunately, included was a bag of extra stones so I should be able to fix this (I just shouldn't HAVE to on a NEW purchase#.
The opal stones have a pale blue iridescent hue to them so if you are looking for pure white, this isn't the sash for you. I think it could add that little "something blue" to a white or ivory gown. Will also dress up any cocktail dress or formal wear by adding just a touch of bling.
The actual length of the beaded section of the sash I received is 28 1/8" #overall length 29"# and not 27" as listed, so it is too big for my 26" waist. I am not sure if this sash is mis-marked as a Small #the tag say S) or the measurements listed above are simply incorrect. The sash is now out of stock so I cannot exchange for another size Small.
The sash fits me nicely just under my bust so I may use it in that manner instead. Otherwise, it will have to go back. I wish BHLDN would make their fitted sashes in an XS size!
You do have to be VERY CAREFUL with this sash around fabrics as the pronged settings will catch on ANYTHING and EVERYTHING.
