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!

Very cute, pretty dress with a hem that hits at just the right part of your legs to emphasize the thinnest apsect of your thighs and make them look long and slim. However, the dress is very sheer (read: anything but incredibly nude undergarments will show) and it has a large, bulky, metal (not cream or coordinating color) zipper all the way up the back. So when I looked at myself in the mirror from the front, all I saw were panties despite my best efforts to conceal - and the hemline is too short for me to wear this "commando." When I did the over-the-shoulder look to check out my backside, the bare metal zipper contrasting with the pretty cream lace just glared at me the entire time.

But if you don't mind a large metal zipper and the sheer factor, then this dress does have beautiful lace, has a flattering cut which coordinates in a modern fashion with the lace, and again a hemline which emphasizes leg length (plus!). Some women have the figure and the ability to go completely bare under a dress such as this; I am not one, and sadly have to return this pretty one.

This is a beautiful dress...at a great price. It runs just a bit small, so I ordered a 14 when I normally wear a 12 in other designer labels, plus I don't like snug dresses. The quality of the lace is high-end, no glittery stuff, and it does stretch and the dress is lined. B/c I'm short, I did hem the sleeves by hand up about 4 inches- a quick and easy process. The dress is perfect for a wedding, or dress it down with sandals for a fun night out. Enjoy!

I am using this as my wedding dress in August.

I normally would be a size 2/4, but I just had a baby in February and the size 6 fit me perfectly. If you google Adrianna Papell, you should get a few dresses on nordstrom.com where they have a Adrianna Papell dress size chart. I went off of that & measured myself to make sure I got the best fit.

This dress is absolutely beautiful!! I cant' wait to wear it :)

Comfortable and nice feel. I'm petite sized, so sleeves slightly longer than 3/4 length but dress length ok at the knee.

We bought this dress for our daughter's 8th grade graduation. It came quickly, was absolutely beautiful, and was extremely well made. But...the dress is meant for a more mature woman. Probably more for a woman in her late 20s and up. I tossed around keeping it, but don't really need it. Great dress though! But make sure you measure yourself and get the right size! My daughter typically wears a size 6 and we needed to get her a size 10!

I am always skeptical when ordering clothing online but this dress was perfect! I cannot wait for an occasion to wear it. It fit perfectly and the material is wonderful. I will definitely order more dresses from this label. Perfect!

The color is totally wrong. The real dress comes in a lot darker shade of green, which reminds me of algae when I first saw it

I am a 29 year old mom who is 5' 11",a size 14 on top and a 12 on bottom. I ordered the 14 and it fit well! It was a touch shorter than I would have liked, but that is due to my height and is a normal issue for me. I loved the color! I wore with a pewter/gold pair of shoes (matte) and coordinating bag. The fabric is forgiving and comfy -even when lugging a 35 pound toddler around a full day wedding and reception. Really a timeless, ageless, elegant dress. There is a visible silver zipper the entire length of the back of the dress. I loved the little " edge " it gave the dress, but it may not be to everyone's taste.

I'm 33 and 5'9. It was kinda mature on me-i felt old in it so i returned it, respectably. I read to get a size larger but it actually fits true to size. That zipper in the back is awful but i'm not a fan of seen zippers anyway but it's like a gold stained color? Not a fan but the lace and material felt soft:). This dress might work for an older woman that likes zippers.
