The dress looks lovely, beautiful fabric and rich colors. That said, the top portion of the dress is the equivalent of skimpy lingerie. The strap fabric looks cheap and does no justice to the dress. The top portion is cut very low, and reminds me of a string bikini top. I bought this as a birthday gift for my daughter, she just tried it on, and it does not flatter her. She is 5'6", curvy build. I believe the dress would look lovely on someone who is very, very thin and tall, but most of us are not of runway build. Again, I stress, the fabric and colors are lovely, but they missed the mark with the top. She is returning it, and has ordered a different style dress.

I recommend this though sending it back.
The fabric of this dress is to die for. It's absolutely gorgeous. The dress though.. I didn't find it flattering and it is VERY VERY long. At 5'6", I am taller than most ladies.. so I was surprised that this dress was so long in a size small. If you need a bra.. you can't do it with this unless you wear a tunic or something over the top.
So.. overall.. I am in love with the colors and the feel... but I cannot wear this dress.. The length impractical and the the way the top fits doesn't work for my body (34 B/C). This would be perfect for a bride though - wow... or even a photo shoot - maybe senior pictures? Or perhaps you are tall - 6 foot? Then.. I can see this being a match made in heaven.

i love this dress. The pattern and fabric are beautiful. There is an under slip built into the dress which is hard to tell from the picture. It would be impossible to wear a bra with this dress. Also you can't tell from the picture but the straps are a bright gold. I loved them. The straps are adjustable. The dress is definitely floor length. I am 5'9 so it was great for me, but might be too long for shorter women. Yes the dress is pricey, but it is gorgeous and worth it.
This dress is gorgeous. I purchased it for my rehearsal dinner the night before my wedding since it is a cook out with casual dress. This is perfect, so visually interesting with the texture, beautiful finishing details. I am short so a purchased the petite and I am so glad I did! The length and fit are both perfect. I cannot wait to wear this!!!

This is not your typical white dress. The texture of the dress is what drew me to it initially and I had to give it a try.
I took my usual size 6 and it fits perfectly.
Where do I start with so many pros?
• The fabric isn't delicate.
•The underlay is long enough to be modest and is also smooth to the skin.
• The V back creates a lovely silhouette
•The A line cut is so flattering to the body.
• Most importantly it's so versatile, I tried it with a Pilcro denim jacket and a few long necklaces. Perfection.
This will be your go to dress for several occasions.
I purchased this in the store on April 9th for a trip to Tahiti. The material is beautiful and so is the dress. The only negative is that I have to take in the waist of the dress because it just falls straight and could look so much better with that adjustment. All in all, that's still worth it to have such a unique dress for the summer. Highly recommend. Also runs large - I am a size 4-6 and purchased an XS.
I got this dress in the mail today. I'm really excited to wear this piece for my spring vacation. I caught the deal when dresses were 30% off so I did not pay full price. It is expensive but the quality is flawless. It's flowy and crrates an amazing silhouette in the sun. The cover inside is a bit small, but fits. I would suggest sizing up. I'm curvy though, with a big bottom, so that may be why for me. But it's flawless. A must have!
I received my dress today and its so adorable. I wasn't sure what size I was because I never bought this designer before. I went with my regular size (small) and the dress fit perfect. The fabric is amazing, so soft and comfortable. I am tall but for some reason maxi's are still a little long but this one is perfect. I will be wearing a flat sandal and flip flops as well so the length was just right on this dress. Normally they make these day dresses so long you trip over them, not this one. I love the stripe in this dress makes you look slender. The blue coloring is so pretty. I am very happy with my purchase and this was a really great find.
Size ref: 5'1", 26 1/2 inch waist, short waisted
Size ordered: XS
The fit and length of this dress were perfect. The bottom of the dress just slightly touched the ground without shoes on. The waist was a nice snug fit. The silhouette is flattering, and made me feel like a little mermaid. There's no lining in the skirt, but it's not see-through.
I really like this dress. It is unique. There is a modern edginess about it. There are side pockets. My only issue is the price. The material is good. It is not lined, but I am not sure lining would be good here. It is a bit thin, you can see the slight unraveling of the seams inside...The design is worth it, but I think it is not worth over $200. I might keep it, or I might wait for the sale..
