Rated 3 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Penombra Gown 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! February 21, 2014

BLACK Style #:29631892 Nanette Lepore's eponymous line is inspired by her bohemian childhood in Ohio, her passion for throwing a good party, and the excitement of her adopted hometown of New York City. Beautifully tailored through the waist, this showstopping noir gown's sheer, velvet-striped overlay creates a fuller, elegant skirt. Our favorite feature? If we must pick one, the eyelash-lace framed open back has us especially smitten.  Penombra Gown
