Rated 3 out of 5Â by sfdiva Disappointing
I ordered this online and was hesitant as there were no reviews. Well, I definitely want to share - to begin with, this dress is unlined waist-down. I hate when designers go through the trouble of lining the bodice but then stop at the waist. Why?! The material is opaque but the skirt is flimsy as a result. The gathers did not flatter my large chest (34DD) in a size M so I would probably size up if you are busty. Anyways, the embroidery is the star - shimmery and cute. The fabric is very average and the orange is bright. Overall, not a keeper for me.

I fell in love with the cut of this dress! It is very flattering and feminine, but also very bold and unique. The shade of orange that is depicted online is much lighter in color than in reality. This was not a problem for me; I was concerned that the dress would be a sickly "creamsicle" in real life, however, it is a richer, darker orange in person. If you aren't sure about going bold, then this might not be the dress for you. The embroidery along the hemline is very pretty and also slightly different in person (the photo doesn't do a lot to highlight the red and copper sections between the silver stitching). It also helps the skirt retain its flared effect while wearing it. I agree with the other reviewer who pointed out that the skirt could be lined, but a pretty slip or half slip would take care of that issue. Beautiful dress!
