Rated 5 out of 5 by RhubarbCupcake Amazing. Felt like Betty Draper at a party.
I bought this dress in my local store to wear to an Indian wedding, but I hope to also use it for fancy dinners and holiday parties. I normally don't wear this cut of dress (I'm a fit-and-flare or sheath person normally), but this made me feel like a 60s era movie star. I am normally a 4 to 6 in dresses, but the 2 seemed to fit better on this, though I think the cut is supposed to be more generous. The picture online doesn't really do it justice.

This dress is absolutely beautiful in person. I agree with previous reviewer that the photos do not do it justice. I plan on wearing it for new year's and any other fancy party I can get invited to. I usually wear a 2 or so in anthro clothes, but they only had a 0 in stock that ended up fitting perfectly. You can easily belt it for a different look. I wouldn't normally spend this much on a dress I don't have a definite occasion for yet, but it was too good to pass up and a classic style...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mata Favorite Holiday dress yet!
I tried this on when it first came out..then added it to my wishlist. I decided yesterday to go try it on again, and bought it, because there were only a couple left in store.. and I had the feeling my size would sell out before a sale or promotion and I would kick myself all winter. That said, here are some details to share. I found it true to size. Because I am an hourglass shape, when I tried the size down, the underslip was a bit more clingy, which wouldn't bother me too much, but you could see that through the lace. That said, it would be okay to size down if you are not hippy. This dress is also very armpit area baring, so if you are not comfortable with that.. I would pass, or consider layering with a bolero or shrug of some sort. It looks lovely belted or loose. The beaded color area has gold and silver sequins, plus small pearls.. and the lace is a metallic neutral.. so accessorizing will be really easy and fun! I am 5'7" and it hit just above my knees. I did notice, it is a pull over style, with a sole button at the nape of the neck.. and that area was starting to fuzz on a couple of the dresses, from being tried on several times.. so I am hoping the rest of the dress doesn't have that issue over time. The slip and the dress are connected.. very easy to get on.. super comfortable to wear... and stunningly beautiful and flattering! I highly recommend getting this soon if you really like it!
