Crme de Menthe Topper
Not what was expected
I really like this piece, but the lace that is pictured ( scalloped edging) is not the same lace that came, also the beading around the tassels is more of a lime green beading then what is pictured. The tassels are very delicate. Over all it's very pretty, I love the color and the burnt out velvet is very detailed. The fit is very loose.

TO be honest, I am dissappointed in the details of this piece. Having bought from BHLDN before I expected more. The lace does NOT have a scalloped edge at the bottom, like the one shown in the photo, rather a serge-stitch finish. THe tassels are bigger than expected and it just cheapens the look a little. I got this on sale planning to wear it around the house as a chic coverup on chilly mornings and evenings. It is OK for that but think about your 200 dolars seriously before spending it on this.
THe burnout velvet is beautiful, soft and silky and the beading is dainty, color just like in the pictures, quite pretty. This is 2 pieces of half yard velvet sewn together inthe back. If you are crafty you can do this yourself with $45/yd fabric and add a better quality lace at the bottom for a fraction of the cost. I am too lazy to return this but I assure you will be making a better one using this as pattern.

This is just perfect. It is unique and has delightful details (beading, tassels). Quite delicate. I am a size M/L and it fits nicely, but it is cut such that I think it would look good on any size. Is mostly mint green but has a bit more blue coloring in the details. Great!
