AMAAAAZING dress BUT...
on September 18, 2013
I love the color I got which was the mint green, would look amazing in silver pumps and pink lipstick. When I checked out this item I was really struggling with the colors, they are all so beautiful. I have a bad habit that I'm trying to break where I buy multiple colors of an outfit, but now I want the white. If I could I would buy all the colors. I'm a very tall girl(6ft) and the dress funny enough is not as short on me, which is usually a big problem for me. It's the perfect mini dress that's got enough shortness to be considered classy and not tacky. Also, being this is a shift dress with no belt/darts, if you are curvy like I am, you will bring this dress to life. So don't worry about the straight shape when you see it. Those sleeves make me feel like a dainty delicate woman, which is awesome coz I'm such a tomboy. I'm size 10 with a DD cup size.
UPDATE (10/27/14): So I finally wore the dress for the first time a week ago at a wedding. I got plenty of compliments all evening. The dress even as a mini(I'm 6ft tall) was very appropriate for the formal occasion. It photographs well, and whether I was sitting or standing, the dress was comfortable. Also, there were no creases from sitting down.
Now, the reason why I am back on here with this update is because it's laundry day for me right now. The dress was up for a wash, so as always I flipped it over to read the washing instructions on the garment. Even though I had assumed it was probably a dry clean garment, nothing of the sort was mentioned on the tag. So I put it in the washer with like colored clothes and washed with cold water on a cold cycle. I took it out and the outer lace fabric was HARD, like almost crunchy. So i stretched it out as best as I could and laid it flat to dry. Looking at the dress nothing seems wrong with it until you TOUCH it. As i am sure for those of you who have this dress, the lace is very soft to the touch. So please, learn from my mistake and take it to the drycleaners!
