This dress is gorgeous, I ordered it as I love lace but wanted something different. The illusion neckline & flutter sleeves are a beautiful feature and definitely makes it stand out from other dresses. I agree with the other reviews that the underlay is a light lavender/nude colour this makes the delicate lace and subtle sparkle stand out, it is not beige. It only enhances it's vintage look more. It is quite long so would need to be taken up if your below 5'10. The cut is very flattering to any shape & is very light so perfect for an outdoor or summers wedding. All you need is a vintage hair accessory and your ready to go,
Timeless & Elegant. I love it.

I was so excited to order this dress, because I fell in love with the sleeves and the drape at the back, but upon receipt, I am underwhelmed. As far as the color controversy is concerned, it is definitely a purplish greige color, which is fine enough for my indoor evening wedding, where everything will look ivory under artificial light. The sleeves are my favorite part - they are beautiful, except the tulle and sequins were instantly scratchy under the arms - definitely did not want to wear it all night. The back drape was also scratchy and did not have the dramatic look seen in the website photos - it just sort of sat there like a tutu-ish lump on my back. I also disliked the strapless underlayer - in person, it looks somewhat common and in my opinion, is too modern of a silhouette for the vintage style top layer. Finally, I just didn't like quality of the materials. The entire piece seems a little cheap, even at the sale price. I am 5'9", 34D-29-40 1/2, and I tried a 10 and an 8. The dress fit true to size, with the 10 quite large, and the 8 still with room to nip in the waist, while the top was a little tight. Shorter girls will need to hem.

First of all, this dress, or at least the one I tried on, is definitely a light lavender. And it's gorgeous! I spent about 20 min. of my appointment just staring at myself in this dress and I nearly bought it. It's just so different and fun, especially for an outdoor wedding. From the color to the drapey thing in the back to the sequin/lace climbing vines, this dress is truly one of a kind.

This is a gorgeous, romantic beautiful, timeless dress. Another reviewer was disappointed in the color and gave it one star. Granted, the dress is not a true ivory as pictured but it is certainly not beige. It is a subtle shade darker than ivory with an almost lavender hue. The color is both sophisticated and appealing and is very much in vogue judging from what I have seen in magazines. If you are wedded to white/pure ivory then choose something else but if you don't take a look at this dress you are missing a great opportunity. The detail on the dress is extraordinary and the back of the dress is stunning. Looks like a very expensive designer dress. Our dress maker decided to shorten the sleeves making them more like cap sleeves which keeps the beautiful lace effect but somehow, gives the dress a more airy feel and better proportioned. I suggest you try this- huge difference. If you are under 5'10" the dress will likely need to be shortened and we needed to take a tiny tuck at the waist but we have been assured that alterations are very do-able and will not be unreasonably expensive. This dress was worth the original price but is a steal at $1400.00 . Five stars.
