The dress arrived and is beautifully made. The weight is perfect, it's not flimsy material but not too heavy and bulky. I did have it taken in since they had sold out of my size and I had to order a size larger. I paired it with the Flora Organza Sash and it became much more bridal looking. Just a classic dress which I hope to wear again in the Spring/Summer to other events sans sash.

Â by irisng Simple and elegant
As many of the other reviewers, I was very excited when I found this dress...it was simple, elegant, had straps and POCKETS (my #1 requirement). I ordered it right away and couldn't wait to try it on.
Based on the measurements, I was just slightly larger than a 2 so I ordered a 2 and 4 and the 2 fit perfectly. I'm a 32C so I will need some cups put in so that there is more support in the bust but otherwise, no major alterations. I love the fabric, it was light but not too light and felt like heaven. Based on other reviews, I was concerned it was going to be too heavy for an early June wedding but it is the perfect weight.
The only cons - the dress is fuller than it appears on the model....so if you were looking for a slim sheath, this is not it. That being said, the fuller skirt allows you the possibility to add crinoline underneath to fill out the skirt a bit more (since there is enough fabric) to make it more of an A-line look and dress it up more into a wedding gown than a dress.
The simplicity of the fabric and cut do require some embellishments to make it really pop. I will be looking at sashes and statement necklaces to dress it up.
Overall for this price you can't go wrong, I'm sorry to see it discontinued but glad I was able to get the sale price (yay price adjustment). If you weren't lucky enough to order your size before it was discontinued, hopefully a similar dress will become available.

Â by Ariane The PERFECT dress
When I first saw this dress, I was not expecting much of it. I was looking for a simple and elegant gown and I decided to give this one a shot. Well, 6 weeks later, I just got married in this beautiful dress. The style was perfect! The ceremony was on the beach and the reception in a backyard. Ideal for both romantic and boho style. I have a pear shape body and this dress was very flattering. I first ordered a size 12, but it was way too big on top! I had to exchange it to a size 8, and I still had a lot of room for my hips.
If you are looking for a unique and genuine dress, this is the perfect one.

Â by DMcK surprisingly STUNNING!
I had originally envisioned myself in a very different dress than this one and was in the Chicago store for a fitting appointment with my mom and a few girlfriends, who all had me convinced to go with my initial instinct (short, lacy, frilly, fun). The girl who was working with me brought this dress out after hearing me talk about wanting to try on a "fantasy" dress or two (you know, those dresses you LOVE but don't really think will work for you). One she brought had a big puffy skirt and while it was BEAUTIFUL, my friends all agreed it wasn't "ME" and wouldn't fit my outdoor wedding/farm venue; when she brought this dress out on the hanger my friends didn't even want me to try it on, but I insisted and when I came out of the dressing room it was settled...THIS WAS IT!! It's an absolute show-stopped on, much more than the model here shows. The pockets are CLUTCH and the underarm cutouts add a sexy component to an otherwise very conservative dress. I got a 0 and had to have it taken up about 2 inches at the top and bottom each (I'm 5'3" 115) but it fit through my rib cage/bust (32-33). You won't find a higher quality material in the dress and the simple design really shows itself off on the dance floor (BUY A DRESS YOU CAN COMFORTABLY DANCE IN!). I've received dozens of compliments from girls and guys who attended our wedding that this is their favorite wedding dress they've ever seen, maybe the girls are just being nice/polite, but for dudes to comment on any wedding dress is really saying something. If you're a classic girl, wanting to show off your simplistic style THIS IS YOUR DRESS!!
