Really Wanted to Love This :-(
6.19.2012
" From looking at the online photos (the video link is empty for me), this was my favorite of the 4 LE summer dresses. It has such a romantic prairie girl charm to it. I normally need to size up to at least an 8 for my 38" (36C) chest, but based on the provided measurements, ordered a 6. It is still quite roomy in the bust at 40", but fits as on the model. Thus I suggest ordering one size smaller than usual. I wear a 2/4 from the waist down (26" waist/36" hip) so can never offer valid comments on the lower body fit of dresses. First I will talk about the two reasons I sent it back. The number one issue for me is that the bodice embellishment is very tacky IMHO. It may be stunning to someone else as it is def a matter of taste, but I find it does not match the romance of the rest if the dress. The mirror segments are very prominent in person and I don't like them. To me, geometric embroidery and mirrors are a blemish on an otherwise fairytale like dress. Sorry. I also dislike the bronze tie used as a belt, but I would just have replaced that. The second major issue was the length of the skirt. To be fair, it is shown to some extent in the photos and if I had loved the bodice, I would have just had the hem altered. But, everyone should be aware that this dress has a wedding dress type train. The rear skirt length from waist to hem is 53" long!!!! That is more than 1.5 ft of fabric dragging behind me at 5'5". The lace itself is gorgeous and lush. Warning: The lace is 100% sheer. You need your own slip to wear with this dress. I adore the cut of the dress, the sleeves, etc. I think the little buttons up the simple woven back and the tie at the neck are all very "prairie". The women who "screens" my orders is 53 and thought the dress too "granny" looking. I don't personally feel that way, but beware if you equate old fashioned prairie looks with granny dresses! Note that as in my photos this dress is mainly sand as named, not ivory. In summary, although I appreciate many aspects of this dress and it may suit someone else perfectly, the bodice detailing was a deal breaker for me. At such a steep price point, I have to LOVE every aspect of a piece. Bummer. "
