5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 15, 2012   

When I received the dress I tried it on immediately! I loved it! It does run a little big so I wasn't sure if I needed a smaller size. Thing is I can't afford to hold two of these dresses on my credit card. I called customer service & explained my dilemma to Carol. She was very very helpful. She is sending me the smaller size, no charge. I just have to send one of them back within 30 days or I will be charged. ABOVE & BEYOND CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! This is one of the many reasons I shop with Nordstrom!

Way too big
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 17, 2012   

This dress was WAY too big. I am 5'3, 107 lbs, and ordered a size 0. The dress was also very heavy. Unfortunately, this was returned.

Very nice...
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 17, 2012   

I read the reviews and was glad to hear it ran large because I like my crew neck clothing to be loose so they hang off one shoulder.This dress was perfect for me! It also runs large in the hip ( not so much the magenta) but can be taken in or belted at this great price point. Some people complained about the weight of the dress ,but the weight is what makes it work so well. Bought the teal, the evergreen ,and also the magenta (which has the ruched sides). These will be so cute at resorts over my swimwear as well as summer evenings out in the city. Can't wait to hit the town!

Heavy and ran BIG
3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 9, 2012   

I wanted to love this dress, especially after reading the reviews. It felt so heavy when wearing, and it ran big. Not flattering for my body type (large chested with curves).

I love, love, love this dress! I ordered in Opal + Teal and kept the teal. Opal ran a little larger for some reason. I wore it to our company gala and am already trying to figure out another place to wear it. LOVE!

Loved this dress
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 28, 2012   

I am very petite, 5' 90lbs and built like a boy (no hips or chest), and this is the first dress EVER that to which I had to make NO alterations! It fit beautifully and I received many compliments when I wore it to a party. This dress is a "must have".

Great for many figures, well made
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 20, 2012   

I agree with other reviewers on the following points: -It's tighter in the hips/butt, so if you have those, that will determine your size -This dress is great for those with a bust, as it gives shape and drape to the dress I ordered this as a reception dress for my wedding (for any other occasion I couldn't justify the price, though it is well made!) Sequins and beads seem fairly well attached-it won't be on my mind during the party. It has just the right amount of glitz. I will probably keep this dress and can't wait to find the right shoes, as they will be key to making the look.

Lots of Sequin Sparkle!
3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 13, 2012   

A beautiful teal color with lots of sparkle. I wear 10 or 12 in better dresses, ordered size 10. Too much dress for my 5"3" frame & had to return. Style excellent if trying to cover trouble spots & prefer a loose, caftan look. Order down a size if unsure, would not recommend for petites.

Beautiful but...
3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 10, 2012   

I really wanted to love this dress. The sequins and the color are so pretty and expensive looking. My complaint is that it is just too big and shapeless. Maybe it's just my body type, but it really just hung on my shoulders. I am usually a 10/12 and 36C, so I followed the reviews and sized down to an 8. It still was too large on top! The bottom of the skirt was almost tight when I was putting it on, but the top just hung and the sleeves were like large bat wings. It is definitely longer that what it looks like on the model. I'm 5'3" and it came just above my knees. Such a lovely, lovely dress and I wish it could have worked for my body! It must work for most other women I guess!

Little Too Shapeless
3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 27, 2011   

Gorgeous color, love the sequins! This dress would have been perfect if it were more fitted (even a little bit), but as it was, it was simply too shapeless for my taste.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 21, 2011   

This dress looks alot better on than on the model. I am 5'4 and 125 lbs. I ordered the size 2 and it fits perfectly. I wore this to a Cmas party last weekend and received TONs of complements!! It is just beautiful!! I have the black one with gold sequins.

sexy/classy!!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 12, 2011   

this dress is perfect! well made,looks stunning on. it runs a little big i'm usually a 6 and took a 4 based on reviews, i would say this should fit most body types although if you are boy type body it might just hang because it has a boxy shape. but if you fall into the curvy category this is perfect, i think hips and butt gives this dress the sexy appeal without being vulgar, this could definitely work as a 2nd wedding dress with killer heels or for a special celebration..

Way, way too large in the top
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 9, 2011   

This dress is way too large in the top. The design - open sleeves - makes it really, really blousy and sort of just hangs on you. If you are large busted you can wear this dress, but if you're smaller or average in the bust it will be too large. They need to make this in a petite size so it will fit those of us who are under 5'8". It felt really long through the body, again because of the open sleeve style. If you purchase this be sure to use the hip size as your guide. I ordered the teal blue and the color is fabulous. I'd buy another dress in this color!

The dress fits well, and is very elegant. The fit is a bit boxy, so I wouldn't say this dress is sexy...more sophisticated and pretty.

Beautiful dress, but....
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 2, 2011   

I was very excited about this dress as the combination of being elegant and fun was especially appealing. I purchased a size 8, which was about 6 inches above the knees for me. The fit was as described, loose, and walking in the dress was smooth and easy. I loved the cold-shoulder sleeves, however, I discovered that the dolman cut of the sleeves inhibited any movement of the arms upward. When I raised (even slightly) one or both arms, because the lower portion of the sleeve fabric is attached near the waist (creating the dolman sleeve), the entire body of the dress was pulled upward. This caused the garment to look awkward and exposed a lot of thigh. Lowering my arms was equally awkward, because I found I had to readjust the lower portion of the dress, despite its loose fit, and that was annoying. Both the elegance and fun of a visually beautiful dress were lost. Sadly, I am returning it.

fabulous dress! i wanted something easy, breezy and this is it! just slips over your head - add some heels and alexis bittar jewelry and you are off! i love the color - i wanted something other than basic black and definitely not a jewel tone but i must say, it is not charcoal but rather a steely grey/blue.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 13, 2011   

I have never written a review, but after purchasing this dress I have to say that it was the best purchase I have ever made. The dress is absolutely gorgeous and fits perfectly. I'm 5'5, 105 got a 0 and it fits perfect. I can't wait to wear this dress. It's definitely a dress I will wear more than once. It's beautiful on.

Perfect versatile dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 13, 2011   

A great dress for that cocktail party, holiday party, wedding, school function, etc. I normally wear black but I got this dress recently to be a little different and I received a lot of really nice comments. I normally wear a 2 or 4 in pant and I am 5'4" and the size 4 fit me perfectly as it was the bottom that was a little tight more than anything else. Was very happy with my purchase.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 7, 2011   

Love it! Haven't worn it yet and the only thing I'm concerned about is it staying in the right place on my shoulders. It seems to want to slide back or forward a bit but I will deal with it since I like the drape and look so much.

Pretty but large
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 2, 2011   

LOVE this dress!! it's going to be my "2nd dress" for my wedding reception. it's so fun and beautiful. it is a bit heavy though because of all the sequins. but i can't wait to wear it!! i got it in a 0, 2, and 4 bc i wasn't sure which size was going to fit me better. I thought i was going to fit the 2, but the 0 was actually perfect. thank goodness for the great return policy at nordstrom!! ^_^ oh!, the only other thing, is that the slip underneath starts to ride up if you move around a lot, so i'm putting some clothing weights on the inside to hold it down.

Great dress for apple figures
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 30, 2011   

I have a stomach that needs disguising and this dress did so beautifully. I'm 5'1", so the dress was longer than pictured and wasn't flattering the way it was hanging, so I tied a sash around the waist and carefully pulled the dress over it, raising the hem by a couple of inches. This made it much more flattering, and I could control the hem length without altering the material. It is a very high quality, well made dress. The photo does not do it justice. It's VERY sparkly and might not be suited to a daytime event, depending on how flashy you want to be. I wanted it for a 4:00 wedding, but as gorgeous as it was, I thought it was too over the top for the time and venue.

LOVED this dress AND the color..... Was too big and needed to be a bit more tailored around the middle..... looked a little too baggy there and would have even if it had been smaller.... It was the was the dress was cut. But really wish it had fit my body because it is a beautiful, well-made dress.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 14, 2011   

I actually ordered a size 2 and size 4 because I could not really get what size I would wear from the measurements and other reviews..so I ended up with the size 2 and sent the size 4 back...I am 5'2", 110lbs, and if I did this right...my waist is 28 inches and hips are 33 inches..I am a 34B..so I hope this actually helps anyone with what size you should order...the dress hits right above my knee also. The dress is really stunning and I plan to wear to holiday and formal functions this year..

Gorgeous
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 13, 2011   

Honestly, the dress is as exquisite in person as it is on the model. I was worried that it would be too loose or frumpy, given that I'm far shorter and have a larger bust than the lovely lady pictured above, but I think it's one of those universally flattering designs. I absolutely love it and plan to wear it in my casual nuptials, but this is certainly a versatile dress that can be worn to any fancy/glitzy occasion. I may have the hem line taken up a bit, as it's just above the knee and I think it looks more modern at the length seen on the model. I absolutely recommend this dress to all those on the fence!

3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 2, 2011   

Beautiful dress. However, I sent it back. I felt that the dress did little for my figure. I felt it made my shoulders too broad and I do not have much of a chest so I just looked square. I think it would look great on someone with a fuller figure.

lovely
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 29, 2011   

I am 5'7" 125,normally a size 6.Based on the other reviews I ordered both a 4 and 6.The 4 was too short for my age and it was a much more body hugging fit.The 6 is about 2 inches above my knee and fits great,it hangs a little looser ,but I believe that is how this is supposed to be worn.It is a beautiful dress.Try it on with heels to really get the true design of the dress,it makes a difference than just bare feet.I would say order your normal size unless you want a body hugging fit.

Just Right
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 29, 2011   

I tried several dresses for a very special occasion and this is the one! I like the length and the how it show just the right amount of the arm to look sexy. I wont need to add serious jewelry or accessories because it is the show piece. This dress is also very kind to the lower pooch tummy area! Love it and so does my husband!

3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 28, 2011   

As soon as I looked at the dress after receiving through the mail I knew it was going to be too big and I was right. It was very big on the top. I think if you are a busty woman, it would look beautiful. I purchased a size 4 and the bottom was a little roomy as well. I had to return it and ordered something different. I took a chance, and it didn't work out. Oh well....

While it is a pretty dress, I thought it looked a little boxie on my body. It would probably look better on a more petite person. I decided to return it but kept another lovely dress from Nordstroms. I am between an 8 and 10. I ordered the 8 and I think that was the correct size,

Simple yet so elegant
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 13, 2011   

This seems to be one of the most perfect dresses. I have this is charcoal also but the white just pops! I wear a size 12 but it seemed a little tight around the thighs and thought it was too short (for my taste). I reordered in a size 14 and now it is perfect. Unfortunately I am sending back because I had the charcoal color and my conscious said I didnt need two of the same dress. However, if I have another occassion to wear it to, I will track it down and buy. You need to wear minimal jewelery (earrings and bracelet), and if you have dark/black hair this color is awesome!

I purchased this dress for a wedding I was attending. When I put it on, I fell in love with it. I received so many complements on how classy and unique it is. I'm so happy I read reviews on it before I purchased though. It does run big so order a size down. I definitely would recommend this to anyone who is going to a dressy event.

Breathtaking dress!!!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jul 5, 2011   

After reading 2 pages of reviews, I felt I could add information for girl built like me. I am 5'10' and around 190lbs. I am very curvy and voluptuous. I have real G cup breast and a thin waist and medium hips. This dress fits beautiful. I read one review and the woman said it was shapeless, all I can think is that she ordered the dress way to large for her frame. I am a 12/14 so I'm straddling the fence on size but this dress was made for me!! I can't wait for a special occasion to wear it!! Total thrilled with this purchase.

Perfect cocktail dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jun 21, 2011   

This dress is even prettier in person, looks much more expensive than it actually is! Fits beautifully, though it does run on the generous side. I'm usually a size 0-2, 5'6 and 108 pounds, ordered size 0 and 2, the 2 was huge, and 0 worked great, so I would definitely size down. Can't wait to wear it.

I was looking for a dress that was the perfect combination of sexy but also conservative enough for a business event. This hits the nail on the head! It is incredibly well designed and made. Couldn't believe the beading is all done by hand. The color is a sexy nude with gold shimmery details. A real stunning look.

loved this dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jun 6, 2011   

The dress fit perfectly...and looks great. It is elegant and fun. I think this dress would probably look good on most body types... and it is forgiving of 'problem' areas. After reading the other reviews I was able to order the right size...I ordered it by paying attention to the hip size even though I am bigger in the bust area...I bought a great pair of open toed nude heels with a slight platform and a silver and nude evening bag...they look great with it. I also saw the white and silver version on a girl going to her prom and it looked teriffic on her..with all silver accessories. This is the first time I have bought a dress on line and I was very pleased. the descriptions were good and the other comments - especially on sizing were very helpful.

Nice and sparkly, very comfortable. I like that it narrows down towards the bottom giving you the hugging feeling. I would have loved a 6 but scared it might be too short. the 8 worked fine.

Sometimes, you see a dress that looks great on the hanger or the model, then you put it on and find that it doesn't look that great on. This dress was quite the opposite. When I put it on it looked even better than I imagined. Love this dress!

So happy I found this!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jun 2, 2011   

I bought this online for my daughter's wedding. It is beautiful yet comfortable. It doesn't wrinkle so it will be great to take to her out of town wedding. I usually wear a petite 4 but it didn't come in petite so I ordered a regular 2 and a regular 4. The size 2 was short enough and fit fine. (I returned the size 4.)

YUCK!
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 25, 2011   

I wish I could say that I loved this dress like so many others...but I thought it was horrible. It is totally shapeless and almost confusing...I ordered it in both black and gold and they are on their way back...definitely not for me.

Gorgeous Dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 16, 2011   

Dress is gorgeous. Truly fits as indicated on model--will be a bit more fitted on hips if you have them but it really is meant to be loose fitting so be sure this is what you want. As indicated it can be forgiving as it is not tight but if you are slim it lies flat on you so it still shows off your figure. Good length, short enough to balance off volume on top. (i am 5"7) The best measurement is hips, the same as previous reviewer has indicated (thx for that detail!!). Well made, very sparkly. Wore to evening wedding with black platform pumps and clutch. I have an athletic build- decent legs, defined shoulders, normal hips and a smaller bust and the dress fit well. I ordered an 8 but the could have fit the 6, but I was between sizes on measurement and as I ordered online thought loose would be better than tight. The measurement guide online is very accurate. I think I will get a lot of wear out of this dress!

Beautiful, But Runs Large
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 9, 2011   

Beautiful dress, but go a size or two down. I usually wear a size 8 or 10, purchased this dress in a 6 after reading other reviews and the 6 is perfect.

Flattering and comfortable
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 5, 2011   

This dress is so flattering, hides my trouble spots (waist and tummy), but shows off my legs. I normally wear a size 8 (5'8", 150#) but I ordered a size 10 based on my hip measurements and it fits well. I plan on wearing with Steve Madden Russh pumps in nude. Super cute!

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 4, 2011   

This dress was beautiful -- however, it didn't fit properly. I ordered 2 different colors and one was too small and one was too big -- so I guess not the dress for me. However, it was beautiful and I wished it would have been right for me.

Love It! Love everything about it. My husband thought it was one of the top two semi-formal dresses that he said, "...I look really hot..."in! That is a very good thing. I would recommend this dress to anyone, regardles of of age or size. It is perfect.

4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 22, 2011   

This is an awesome dress but is definitely very dressy, which makes it a little less versatile. however, it's extremely comfortable. I ordered a size 10 and had to exchange for a 6 so it runs big.

Aiden Mattox 'Cold Shoulder' Sequin Dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 17, 2011   

This is a 5+ star. The dress is beautiful. The quality is outstanding. The size runs approximately 1 1/2 to 2 sizes too large. The color is out of this world gorgeous. With gold jewelry it is perfect.

Fabric and design is lush. A little tight in the hips. I returned dress because it felt a little boxy and over whelming on my short stature (5'3").

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 20, 2011   

Let's just say thank goodness I was able to try this on! I tried on every sized they had in the store I visited. Lately i am wearing a size 10 or 12 dress-still carrying a bit of baby weight and always carrying larger ta-tas! I ended up with a size 4! I am very narrow in the hips so makes sense since the top is looser. So if you are ordering this dress without trying it on I would recommend measuring by your hip size and ordering from there. Once the dress was on (and in the correct size) it looked absolutely stunning!

Pleasantly Surprised...
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 28, 2011   

I needed a white dress for a black/white party...looked everywhere for a fun yet sexy white dress that is not matronly or a wedding dress...FOUND IT! This is so beautiful on. I am 5'4 and 130 lbs and it fit perfectly. With Nude shoes and a tan-watch out! I did find this dress to be true to size, not see through and not overly boxy as some others found it to be. Hits right at mid thigh.

Gorgeous dress
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 28, 2011   

The dress itself was beautiful. I was glad to find it long enough in a size 10 for a tall 50-something. My issue is only with how it looked on me. It's very forgiving but having just lost 15lb, I thought it hung from my shoulders and bust and made me look wide all the way down, or at least wide across the upper body. At my former weight I may have kept it, but didn't like the "caftan fit" on my improved figure. I even paid overnight shipping to get it in time but unfortunately sent it back. Great dress for the right person. Gold color is gorgeous on a blond.

I ordered this dress online for a banquet I had coming up. It was very nice and elegant. It's a nice buy but I'm not sure its worth the money when other stores have dresses similar for less.

FABULOUS!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 9, 2011   

This dress is beautiful and you feel beautiful in it! It fits great (a little smaller thru the hips) but still pretty true to size. I am busty with a smaller waist and this dress is very flattering without looking "maternity like" and hits at just the right spot above the knee. Definitely a sexy heel and fun earrings and you are good to go! No necklace needed. I can hardly wait to wear it my sister's 50th birthday party and hopefully on many other occassions as well.

Great dress for eloping in Vegas!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 9, 2011   

This dress is just like the pic. it is a loose fitting dress, so lets not mistake that for: sized too big.. I definitely suggest ordering on the smaller side if you're on the fence between sizes. Don't expect this dress to give you much shape- if you do, you'll be disappointed. It is great quality the fabric & beading is nice. I searched for a dress to elope in Vegas for this spring (before the real/big wedding this summer) and I think this will be perfect. I will probably also wear it again either for the rehearsal dinner or as a reception dress at our wedding this summer. Very pleasantly surprised by this dress. I ordered a size 2 and my size varies from a 0-4.

Great party dress
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 31, 2011   

Bought this for a work cocktail party. Just had a baby so needed something that wasn't too tight around the midsection. I'm 5'10 and usually wear a size 6 (pre-baby) but I got this in a 10 and it fits great. Looks classy and well-constructed. It's so beautiful I'm going to be conservative with the accessories so it doesn't take away from the dress.

GORGEOUS!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 22, 2011   

This is officially the most beautiful dress I own! I ordered it as a "2nd dress" for my wedding (in case it's too hard to dance in my gown or I get tired or wearing that much dress). I am not accustomed to paying three hundo for dresses, but this one makes me feel like maybe it's worth it to start splurging occasionally. When I put it on, I felt like one of those real housewives--specifically Kyle, Beverly Hills! :) So beautiful! The sequins are as shown in the pic, but what you can't see in the pic is the additional white beading that fills in b/t the sequins and just makes it such a quality garment. I was literally shimmering all over the house when I tried it on. It looked white on my screen, but it is a lovely light ivory that IMO makes it look nicer. My usual size 8 hugged my hips but fit just the way I wanted; 6 would've been much too tight. Also, I'm a pear and I get why they would recommend it for pear shapes--the sleeves make the top wide enough to balance out my hips. (And call me delusional, but I think my slight curves look better in the dress than the stick-figure model!) Full disclosure: I am 6' tall so it does make it all about the legs, and it falls about mid thigh on me. For shorter pear shapes, I would think if you got it hemmed to show enough leg, it could still work well for you. VERY minimal jewelry (if any) needed, just fab heels to make those calves pop! In the meantime, I'm going to be working out my legs like crazy to get them in shape for this dress! And I can't wait to find other excuses to wear it!

The Hubs and I are celebrating our 25th Anniversary this weekend-we are throwing a party for 60 of our closest friends with a DJ and dinner and all disco music. I am wearing this adorable "cold shoulder" dress (I am going to wear it backwards) with a pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes. I can't wait!! Great dress!

4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 15, 2011   

I ordered this dress as a "when I need a dressy dress for an occasion and can never find one" spare in my closet. It's very comfortable and I love that it's just a pull over your head style. No discomfort in zippers and tightness in the middle area. I just can't decide if I want to get the black one instead, but I think the gold fits the bill for any occasion and is something different than the little black dress. Love it!

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 5, 2011   

This dress is too cute! I wore it NYE and it was just perfect. I'm normally a size 4 and purchased a size 2 and it was still a little big. The dress hangs on your body and for a quick fix, I purchased a belt and it solved all my problems. I highly recommend purchasing a belt over altering the dress. This has been my best dress purchase online. Highly recommended!

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 1, 2011   

I ordered this for a New Years Eve wedding, then remembered it's best to leave white to the bride. If I had more fun, dressy occasions, I would have kept it to wear somewhere else. It is rather boxy, as you can see on the model...but the sleeves and fabric are so fun, I didn't care. I've seen it in black, gold and blue...but I think this is the best color. It is different. I wear a 6 or 8. The 6 was plenty big...could probably have fit into a 4

Little Gold Dress
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 15, 2010   

I was very pleased when this dress arrived. When I first opend the box I instantly loved the color. It was more of a taupe/gold. When I pulled it out of the box the weight of this dress felt of quality, not flimsy. Finally the fit...I am a bit top heavy and this dress was very flattering on. The weight of the dress allows it to hang beaultifully.

Stunning Warm Gold
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 8, 2010   

I wore this dress recently to a black tie event and loved it. I got a size 12 which on me (5'5") hit @ mid knee. I thought it was going to feel too heavy because it's covered front and back in beading but it's not at all heavy. This is probably due to the silk lining and over skirt which are buttery soft. Even sitting down on all the beading was not uncomfortable. The cold-shoulder-effect is perfect for me as I don't like my upper arms. Probably could have worn a size 10 but as I have a full bust the 12 was better and hid tummy bumps. This dress might not work well for a smaller busted figure and could overwhelm it. One word of caution: the sleeves are kimono-style so when I raise my arms there is a bit of a side view of bra and upper torso. I just kept my arms a little lower while dancing. Wear with minimal jewelry as less is more!

2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 7, 2010   

Pretty dress, but really did not work for me. If you like a semi-shapeless dress that kind of just hangs, then you might like this. If you ilke something with more definition, then don't buy this dress. Note that it's super heavy because of all the beading.

I bought this dress for my 40th birthday and I loved it ONLY after I had it completely altered to fit me. It is not a fitted dress. But once taken in at the sides it was the perfect dress for my 40th birthday party. I can't wait to wear it for a holiday party!

4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 21, 2010   

This dress runs a bit big. I have a bigger chest and usually have to buy a size up for the top to fit correctly. I was able to buy a size 4 and still have room. The cold shoulder look is nice but I did have to have the sleeves altered to give it a neater look... otherwise the shoulders rolled forward and gave it an unfinished look. I plan to wear it for New Year's Eve and the loose fit will make for a comfortable yet stylish evening!
