Rated 5 out of 5 by gnomelover "You look amazing in that dress."
That is what my husband said when I put this on for him. And his eyes were big. And if made me feel amazing in the dress.
Because this dress is amazing.
My budget was all gone. Dust in the wind for January. But I knew that I had two events I could wear this to in the next two months. So, I took money from my February budget five days early and I ordered it. It came two days later.
I ordered my usual size six, I tried it on with a body slimmer. Thank goodness I did, because this dress accentuates everything. But with a slimmer, I found this to be okay. The size 6 was perfect.
This dress is unbelievably delicate. I am so glad I ordered this before others had tried it on, the skirt portion is actually a layered piece in the front. It is a piece with cutout holes over another pattern. This combined with the delicate top (which is beautifully lined) will make me be extra cautious.
I have my dress hung up in my closet pillowed between items that I trust will not snag it. I cannot wait to wear this and see my husband's face again!
This dress was worth every penny.

by Thirtytwopaws Not a must have for me, thank goodness!
I swooned over this dress when I first saw it in the store. It is amazingly beautiful. The lace is gorgeous, and it is hard to see online, but there is this fabulous cut-out detail in the skirt. It is an incredible dress. BUT...
For reference, I am usually 4 in Anthro dresses, sometimes a 2. I am 5'7, between 115-120 pounds, 34 B/C, slim and straight, with no hips.
The store only had a 4 available the first time I saw this dress a week or two ago. The skirt is rather thick with a formed silhouette, and this size was too big in the rear area. I have been dreaming about this dress ever since, even though it is completely impractical for my lifestyle, and I don't know where I would ever wear it, and not to mention the price. But I was convinced that I need it anyway. You know the feeling...
Well, I had a chance to visit the store again today, and there it was, my size 2. At first glance in the mirror, my fantasy lived on. The dress fit like a glove. However, as I moved around a bit and then tested out what would happen if I sat down....I noticed the skirt would bunch up and kind of stick out in a wierd way in the wrong places. I tried to get a good picture of this. Even if I ever had occasion to wear this dress, I feel like I would probably be tugging at it all night to smooth out the skirt. As I mentioned, the next size up wasn't really a good fit for me either.
So, fortunately, due to the fit issues, I no longer feel compelled to buy this dress! Of course, it might be perfect for someone else's body type, so I would still highly recommend it, but try on first if you can!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anthrosterical Luscious feminine vintage appeal. Very curvy.
This is a really beautiful dress. Unusual and distinctive with its combination of design and pencil silhouette. Totally feminine.
If you are curvy, beware, as it adds a lot more to the action. I loved it, but sadly not for me. I have rear, and boy, howdy, did it rear. It was just a little too much of a good thing.
Sooo, if you want to add some curves then this is the one for you.
