Prettier in person
I am having a barn wedding in December and i wanted a very simple uniqe dress. I am not one that is into trying a million dresses on so it was my mission to find one on line.
I fell in love with how this one flows in the video. and the very subtle details with the gold and layers. My mom was blown away when it came in and fell in love with it immediately.
I am 5'5 and i wear a size 14 in pants. I ordered the size 12 and it fits almost perfectly. The straps are a little long and the top has some extra room so i will have to get it altered before my big day . I ordered it with the beige cover up that was on sale and they look great together. Im also planning on getting a sash to dress it up a little.
The only issue that i had was that the garment bag it came in smelled so bad ! It smelled like gas and plastic. It literally made my closet and other clothes smell horrible. I had to air out the dress and wash and air out the bag as well. It is not a big deal and easily fixed but just be prepared for this possibility.
I really love this dress. it is a great deal and i would highly recomend it to anyone that is concidering it or on the fence about it.

a perfect dress... for someone else
Oh, I do love this. I love the eye catching gold details that are unlike anything else. love the gorgeous, elegant, unique buttons (although I noticed that one was loose before I had even tried it on). I love the full, very long, romantic skirt with layers of various fabrics that have so much movement. I love the ribbony straps. Unfortunately this dress did not work for me although I really really wanted it to. The off-white, almost beigey tone and gold details didn't really work for my yellowy pale skin. This would look great on someone with more of a medium/olive skin tone or even a nice tan.
I am a street size 12 and I bought this in a size 12. My bust measurement is 39" at the fullest point and found this was a bit loose in the bust. The 'cups' are fairly soft so they don't provide much support. I also have wide shoulders and the dress kind of accentuated that. Perhaps this dress would work better for a "pear" shaped person with a smaller upper body and narrower shoulders. I loved the fit and subtle detail over the ribcage, but I didn't expect it to be quite so loose in the low waist and hips. I wanted a dress that would show off more of my hourglass figure and this unfortunately didn't work.
