Hip Swag Bell Dress

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I am I love with this dress.... ...but I wear it differently than pictured on the model. That hip swag looks kind of strangely sloppy. I like wearing that bottom black floral piece all behind the dress, almost like a short train, since it's a couple inches shorter than the tunic/dress inside. And when I get older and think I can't pull off the hippie look anymore, I can have the black floral skirt piece removed, and then the tunic w/ sash is awesome over jeans/leggings or as a short dress, too. Actually, I really like the tunic alone and wish it just came that way sometimes! I agree it can be confusing to put on. Especially since I didn't wear it like the model the first time. But I"m kinda glad, because if I had, I don't think I would have liked it as much! I'm usually not much of a picture picture, but I felt compelled to submit one to show the unintentionally different way that this can be worn. February 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful dress, difficult sizing This is a beautiful dress, very well made and the design is as beautiful as it looks in the photo. I had a problem with the sizing, the 12 was a little too big and the 10 a little too small, there's no elastic so no give with the size, has to fit perfectly, and be able to hang just right for the design. I think it would best fit someone tall and thin. Also, there's a lot of layers so confusing to figure out how to put it on. That said, it is truly a beautiful, unique, well made dress and I wish I was tall and thin! October 1, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Prettier in the Picture Ordered it on line. Excited for it to arrive. Had to call up customer service to figure out how to get into dress. Drape in front just bags out on me. Looks terrible. Material is also scratchy. For the price I would imagine a silk or silk blend, but it is not. Returned item. November 28, 2012
