Very cute dressI gave this dress a shot even though reviewers said it had neon beading. Ok, the beading is bright, but it didn't bother me very much. If anything, the beading gives it a fun "pop" of color against a muted pale pink dress. My issue was in the sizing. I agree with other reviewers...it runs large. I'm normally a size 4, but my size was too big for me in this dress. The shape is meant to be loose, but i was surprised that there was no zipper to close this dress. It just slips on over your head. A zipper would have improved the fit. For ref., I'm 36, 27,35 and a size 2 would have fit better. This fit of the size 4 was too roomy in the waist and hips...the fabric was drooping on my backside because i didn't have enough bottom to fill it out. This dress would look great on a curvy woman. It is so well made...such a shame it didn't work for me.

Loved more than I thought I would!Unlike other reviewers, I tried this on in-store while in NYC, trying to find something appropriate for an evening out celebrating our engagement. The stylist gave me several options that she thought would work on my petite frame. I was skeptical about the bright pink beads and it's much flashier than anything I would normally wear, so I would have never chosen it myself. HOWEVER, once I tried it on I knew it was perfect! There are golden and bronze tones that worked nicely with my skin color and the pink while on, didn't seem as bright. Love the scallop Art Deco details too. Any dress beaded as heavily as this I would expect to have threads come loose and beads fall off. I had no issue but did notice that it came with a packet of replacement beads. I can't wait to wear this for our New Years Party. I'm about 115 lbs., 5' 2.5" and 32DD. The size 0 was perfect (runs large). Also, unlike other reviewers, I did not find it too heavy to wear at all.

frustratedsooo i agree fully with the other posts... the beading is extremely bright in person. but thats not my main issue. i originally ordered the 2 (my reg size) and it was enormous. exchanged it for the zero and im still swimming in it. and its a bridemaids dress so im sort of at a loss. not sure what to do. the sizing is just way way off. its beautiful even with the bright beading but i don think they will be able to alter it :(

A pass for meI wanted to love this expensive dress, but the fit was off for me. I am 5'2" and opted for the petite and it was more of a tunic. Would maybe have better luck with the regular. Overall a cute dress but a pass for me. I agree w/ the other reviewer in that there are definitely neon pink beads on the dress that you can't see from the image. If you are going to go for it, I'd wait for it to go to sale.

Heavy DressI ordered this online in hopes of wearing it to a holiday event. However, it is very very heavy - the dress feels like it weighs 10 lbs - and I can't imagine how it would be comfortable. Also, the beads were falling off as I tried it on, so I am sure that when worn all night the beads would definitely fall off. Nice idea, but not executed correctly. Please pass on this one.
