Surprised... I like it.
on January 14, 2014
I'm always hesitant to buy clothing online without having tried it on or being familiar with the vendor. Reviews were split for this item and feedback on other dresses brought from this vendor where less than favorable. My worry is that I would not like the dress and be stuck with it as the return shipping would cost more than the item. For $15.00, I was willing to gamble.
I brought the US 8-10 forgetting that it may be equate to US 6-8 since again its coming from a UK company. I was ordering hoping for a looser fit rather than tight. Surprisingly the dress fit; well! I'm 5'8 and LOVED that the length was long enough to pass my knees. Some complained about the top half not being cap sleeves but fitting like a t-shirt. It does, but I like it.
Its a simple dress. The material is not the best, but looks better on (leather-like). I will say it has a very flattering fit that I liked a lot but it is not a forgiving material (think seamless underwear). Your body is what makes the dress look great; or it can go the other way. Its 50/50. The dress fit me well, like the picture. I plan on pairing mine with a great pair of heels, minimum jewelry.
I'm pleasantly surprised: this was a great $15.00 buy. The dress arrived by USPS sooner than expected (estimated 30 day shipping).
