Gorgeous, Vintage Feeling Dress
This dress is absolutely gorgeous, and it had the perfect vintage feeling for our wedding. The cream color is beautiful, the fabric is flowy and divine, and the lace is gorgeously done with a lot of detail. Do note, however, this dress (as with all silk) is very prone to static when the air is moist, so absolutely positively do bring dryer sheets with you to occasionally rub the bottom with.

This dress was perfect for my garden wedding reception. I measured myself first and came in right at a size 6 which fit perfectly. I'm 5'6", 138lbs. The skirt had a lot of static so dryer sheets were a must. Also the skirt is not full whatsoever. I purchased a small tulle skirt to go underneath to give it fullness as the picture depicts. Without something underneath the skirt just hangs down strangely.

Lovely But Returned It
This dress is very pretty and well made. However, it was darker than I imagined. I thought it would be ivory but the color description does state it is cream. As for sizing, for reference, I'm 5'3", 106 lbs, 34B and a 26 in denim. I have narrow hips and slightly broader shoulders for my petite frame. In my usual size 2, this dress was snug around my chest and upper rib cage. It was also longer on me than on the model but the sleeves were fine. I purchased it for my small, intimate wedding but because of the fit, I returned it.

Vintage, Ivory and Delicate
I adore this dress. Every single part of its beautiful silk structure, and European with a touch of light French-ness meets London meets 1940s feel, with the lace sleeves and soft silk. It's divine. Even the delicate silk tulle that I'll surely destroy after my big day is TOTALLY worth it. It's perfect for my small wedding at City Hall in SF. The sizing is tricky, though. I originally bought this dress in a size 4, since that fit my measurements according to online advice. I worked in fashion a long time ago, so I measured properly. And yet. I had to return the dress (and had a wonderful customer service experience from the NY flagship store by Camara) and exchanged it for a size 6 since the shoulder area runs EXTREMELY small, and is very difficult to get on and button if the shoulder seams don't line up just right, so fair warning. The size 6 fits perfectly, and I doubt I'll have to have anything tailored. My advice: size up at least one size to get the dress to fit over your shoulders.
I'm 5"11, 130lbs, if that helps.
In short, I love this dress.
