Not as pretty as the picture
I really wanted to love this sash. The faint pink color would go well with any BHLDN dress in the rose color. (I bought it to go with the Niceties dress in rose, which I'm wearing as my wedding dress.) However, I have to say this sash looks cheap in person. The flowers are attached to wire "stems" that stick out from the fabric quite a bit (the name "clematis" should have clued me in to this, but didn't) and I couldn't find any way of arranging them that looked flattering. Also, the grouping of flowers seems pretty small - it's like a blob of flowers just in the middle of your stomach. I will be returning this sash. I bought a different sash (also from BHLDN) that I LOVE (Antiquities sash!)

Looks better in product picture
but not in real person...when I first purchased this I was wondering for such beautiful piece how come there is no review, then when I got the item, put on, I immediately understood why...first of all, for most of cities, BHLDN only offer online shopping, which when I received the item, the flowers are all compressed, so I have to go into each flower to manually rescupt them. Secondly, the overall size is quite small. I brought it with me to see my tailor on the fitting (my dress is super simple with no bead or lace), right after she put it on for me, her face looked a little confused, and she tried to be nice and asked, "so we wanted to added a little color huh..." I think if this goes on a bridesmaid dress, it will look cute, but for a bridal gown, it does create much of an add-on effect.
