Beautiful, understated gown
I tried this dress on in the store and was blown away! It is much more attractive in person- and is easier to see/appreciate the underlay lace detail and the blush color in the skirt. It is the perfect color for my skin tone. I opted to switch the white sash for a peach/blush pink one with flowers. Can't wait to wear this on my wedding day!

Lots of Compliments
I bought this dress in February for a May wedding. It took 3 trips to the seamstress to get the chiffon hemmed because it was such a delicate material. It was worth it! The only problem with the chiffon is that its delicate; so much so that my heel ripped it as I was sitting down taking photographs.
I am very busty on top but the dress managed to hold. I received a million compliments on it. So glad I chose this gown.

I didn't expect to love this dress as much as I do. I tried on a lot of dresses, and this one just fit me so well. The material is so soft, inside and out. I love that the lace just peeks through and doesn't overwhelm the dress. I normally wear a size 8/10 and had to get a 6 in this dress, and I still need to get it taken in, especially in the shoulders.
My only complaint is that when the dress arrived, both the dress and the bag it came in reeked of formaldehyde! That really ruined the excitement of getting my dress. I aired the bag out on my porch for several days, and it still smells. The dress has been hanging in my closet and doesn't smell as much as it did. I will have to get it cleaned, and I will have to buy a new garment bag for it, since the one it came in will stink it up again!

I really wanted this to be the dress. I thought it looked nothing like the image on the website. The bottom was not nearly as "flowy" as it looks in the picture, and the fabric reminded me of a drug store costume I wore when I was 12. The sizing is about right; I'm a little small in the bust, so it was big on me there. The belt is pretty, and the scalloping around the neckline was nice. However, I had this dress hanging for about a week before I returned it, and one thing never went away: STATIC. Nothing I did got rid of the static, and I just know that I'd be spraying it all night long at the actual wedding.
