Rated 5 out of 5Â by Islndwtch Gorgeous detailing
I knew I had to order this dress when it appeared in the catalog. It was beautiful in the photo, but even more so when it arrived. The detail stitching around the neckline, hem and scattered throughout the dress is amazing and so intricate. The color of the dress is a beautiful orange. The fit was perfect for me. I'm 5', 145 lbs and usually wear a 10, but I ordered a 12 petite so it wouldn't be too fitted. That was a good decision. The fabric is airy and quite comfortable for a hot day. I ordered the stretchy beaded belt that is in the catalog photo of the dress and it just ties the whole thing together.

This has to be the most fantastic dress I have purchased in the last few years. I waited so long to purchase it that I ended up with a 10 (instead of my usual 8) when someone returned one to my local Anthropologie.
The design of this dress is just perfect for my hourglass figure. It's one of the few dresses I have been able to find that is loose fitting but still shows off my waistline (and will even more so when I have it taken in). On top of that, the needle work is beautiful and the material is super soft.
The dress does drag the ground a little when I am in flats, but just barely. I'll have to have at least a 1 inch lift to be sure it's not on the ground, but that's nothing to worry about. For reference, I am 5' 7" and got the 10 regular.

This is an absolutely gorgeous dress with the finest details. I think it is well worth the money given the workmanship and attention to detail...especially the intricate embroidery on the upper part of the dress. I ordered the petite 4, but found that it was slightly too big for me. I think the petite 2 would have probably been a better fit, but didn't have time to order that size in time for my event so unfortunately I had to return this dress. For reference, I am 5'3" and 120 pounds. I also thought that the dress would suit someone with a longer torso. I have a short torso and felt that the elasticized waist section was too wide for me and didn't think ordering down a size would make a difference with my one issue with this dress. But since I never did fit the size 2 petite I can only guess that this would be the case. This dress is truly an attention getter...I'm sure anyone wearing this dress will get noticed and will get many compliments!
