STUNNING dress, you'll love it!
This is a gorgeous, comfortable, and light dress. I usually wear a size 0 or 2, but had to exchange and order up. The size 4 fits perfectly, and is better through the chest and in length than the others. As mentioned in another review, there are no zippers nor buttons, so be careful when putting it on! That being said, the mesh and beading are not quite as fragile as they seem at first.
This dress is so light and easy to walk/sit in. The beading is amazing and very sparkly, and the fabric has a beautiful look (also, it is lined). I purchased the sash shown in the photo as well. I highly recommend this dress, especially if you are looking for something vintage, classic, and formal for your wedding!

This dress is so amazing. I wore it as my reception dress and it was the best decision I ever made. I received so many compliments. It's so elegant and sexy but at the same time so confortable. The beading is exquisite! I accompanied the look with the Winter Palace Headband.

Great Gatsby meets Downton Abbey
Honest perfection! I've had my eye on this dress since July, when BHLDN first released a preview of their fall collection. In the meantime, I had tried on at least 20 dresses, but none could compare. I ordered it the first morning it was FINALLY put online, and thankfully it has lived up to every single expectation. Such a relief to have finally found the perfect dress for our day- the perfect combination of Downton elegance and Gatsby glam.
A few notes:
- I'm 5'9, 125 lbs and a 0 is the perfect fit.
- It is a little shorter than I was expecting, at 5'9" it just hits the floor, so I won't be able to wear heels. But I'm okay with that.
- It is a "pullover" style so no zipper or buttons which makes for getting it on and off a bit tricky, especially if it fits snugly, as mine does. Will definitely be a challenge to get it on on my wedding day once my hair and makeup are done. But I'll make it work.
- After trying it on for the first time, a few of the small gems have already fallen off, but its not noticeable. And they send a baggy of extra gems/beads with the dress- just have to figure out how to attach.
Thank you BHLDN and Ranna Gill for such a perfect dress!
