Rated 3 out of 5 by Katiedtx Meh
I liked this dress a lot online... but when trying it on, the cut around the shoulders/sleeve was just very unflattering. Maybe it's just me (and I'm a decently fit lady) but it cut in such a way as my "armpit boobs" (if you will) were very accentuated. You know, that bit of skin near your armpits that makes certain tube tops unwearable. The material was a little rough feeling as well. I adored the style and the buttons in the back, but I had to return this one.
If you have very thin and fit arms, this could work for you!

This dress did not appeal to me online, but I tried it on in the store and fell in love! I usually wear an 8, but they only had a 10. I felt comfortable and the length was ideal- even if they did have my size, I think I would prefer the 10 because the bust fit perfectly. The skirt had a little more volume than it shows online. The purple lining is beautiful too! The dress is actually a sheer, white, striped fabric over a purple satin (polyester, which doesn't bother me). I highly recommend this dress for anyone that likes a vintage silhouette.

This dress is darker than it appears in the picture. The linining is a very bright purple and the lace layer is white. The main problem I had with this dress was sizing. I usually wear a 12 or 14. I couldn't close the 14 at all.
