An essential piece for wedding and then some
Though I already planned to wear the Rosemary Dress (also available here) for my casual autumn wedding at a family farm in Maine, I saw this dress and had a moment of panic.... maybe I wanted to wear something shorter? I typically wear a size 6 or 8 in dresses (I am 5'6 and busty) and after reading reviews I opted to order a 10 and 12 and went with the 10. I found the 12 to be extremely large in the bust and shoulders, but had little difference elsewhere. The dress is adorable and I have a feeling it would work on many different builds. I felt great in it immediately and love that I don't have to stress about finding a special bra, etc. I plan to wear it (with vintage cowboy boots) to my rehearsal party at a fabulous local restaurant tomorrow night and it is an easy dress to justify having in my wardrobe. I can definitely see it being worn in many different ways.

This dress was exactly what I was dreaming of for my outdoor, rustic, bohemian, backyard wedding. Such a sophisticated yet practical dress that was so gorgeous - but humble. The dress made me feel so beautiful while I was wearing it. It really accentuated the natural and bohemian feel I was going for without feeling like everyone thought the dress was more beautiful than I was! I am normally a size 2 but found the 0 was perfect. Not too tight - but very flattering. The colors and textures of the lace contrasted with the slip was just perfect. An absolutely gorgeously made dress with a very unique feel to it. I wore it with pale blue wedges and a flower crown in my hair. Like I said before - absolutely perfect!

The second I received this dress I knew it was the one. It was perfect for my September outdoor urban wedding. Super chic, super sexy, super easy to wear. I agree that the slip it comes with is uncomfortable and transparent but it's easy to snap out. I replaced it with a nude color slip that actually made the dress look better since you could see the lace/pattern more clearly. And yes, it's a bit short, but not obnoxiously short. You just gotta own it. :) As for sizing, I ordered and wore a size 8 (and I wear a size 8 in just about everything so I thought it fit true to size), and I'm 5'8". Enjoy, you won't be disappointed.

This dress was exactly what I was looking for! I tend to be a size 0-2, and ordered a 0, which fit perfectly with no need for tailoring. The lace is classic and beautiful, and photographed wonderfully. The dress breathes well and kept me cool during my outdoor garden wedding. The slip did slide around a bit underneath the dress, so I recommend tacking the slip to the dress on the sides. The dress is shorter on me than on the model, but falls nicely from the shoulders. I paired the dress with the silver Roxie heels, and wore my hair long with a yellow rose pin. This dress was the perfect choice for my garden wedding!
