Rated 5 out of 5Â by WashingtonHeights Lovely girly dress
I typically don't wear such feminine dresses, because I prefer a more modern, tomboy look.
However, I knew this was the dress for my engagement photo session! The detail was perfect, and this dress looks great in pretty much every situation -- it drapes well when seated, and has the right amount of lift and bounce when walking. There are no bad angles.
Overall, I think the style is timeless. I was glad there wasn't an exposed zipper or asymmetric hem. This is a dress I will keep and wear for special occasions for years.
Sure, the buttons in the back could have been a bit more high-end, and yes, the dress is delicate. It is very difficult to find perfection, and this is close to it.

I love this dress. I tried my usual size 4 (5'6", 130lbs, 32D-27-38), and found it to fit rather snugly in the bust, but fine in the waist. I would still probably go with my regular size than size up. It has a hidden side zipper as well as 3 buttons in the back (and I LOVE that the button loops are elastic so you don't spend hours struggling to fasten them). I think the cut-out is lovely, and did not show my bra strap. The slip is nude colored and sewn into the dress at the waist, and there is also a layer of tulle/crinoline in the skirt to make it pouf *just so*. The lace is very pretty and unusual, though looks delicate. So pretty!

First off, it is important to note that it is a delicate dress. Although not sold in stores, many are on the sale rack, returned and damaged. Here's my take on it- I am usually a 2-4, and the 4 fit nice and snugly. The sleeves were tight as was the boddess, unlike the model. Which makes the dress hard to get on and off (the material will tear before it will stretch!). The pulls at the zipper and such are likely from not wearing the proper size. I got a 6. Mind you, I'm 5'10" and 135 pound so I'm quite skinny. The 6 is a bit looser - sleeves aren't snug and are looser like how the model is wearing it. The dress is still tough to get off easily, so care is needed. The fit is amazing. My best suggestion is to try it "big". Snug isnt always better.

Style #:4130204584747Long charmed by the exotic allure of India and all points east, Tracy Reese skillfully melds the details, textures and colors of faraway lands into wearable works of art. We're smitten with this daisy-fresh fit-and-flare, complete with lasercut lace detailing. For a ladylike look, we'd add peep-toe pumps and a statement necklace.
