Rated 3 out of 5Â by alibobali such a disappointment!
this dress is absolutely breathtaking. being that it is designed by nanette lepore, i couldn't wait to snatch it up. i immediately ordered in a 2 and a 4, just to make sure they wouldn't run out in my size.
when it came in the mail (super fast shipping, thanks anthro!!) i was woefully underwhelmed. the construction is flimsy, lacking any kind of support or structure. as a result, the bottom of the garment just sort of hangs without a shape at all. i didn't even try the 4, because the a-line of the skirt is so free that it was unnecessary. i could not have gone smaller, because the top would have cut in a werid place.
for almost six hundred dollars, this dress should pretty much SING while its on you and this one... didn't. i am very disappointed and wouldn't even buy it again if it were on sale. like, SUPER sale. maybe someone else will have better luck... but there's got to be a reason why it's on sale at other high end stores and not sold through yet.

When I saw this on the website, I fell in love. I was searching for a long dress for an upcoming wedding and knew that this was the dress I wanted. This dress fits true to size. It's very long on my 5'2 frame, but fits like a glove everywhere else. The open back is gorgeous. Can't wait to wear it!
