Adorable dress, Curious! If it were me, I would have the straps altered because it seems to fit well

Yes... that strap would not be very difficult to alter.

Yeah, either wide or super skinny and tight, Prada style or something. I really don't know what I'm talking about.

dream...my favourite way is no belt and with necklace...(the last one)
you don't need a belt if it is a drop waist like that...

agree it really doesn't work well closed...
that with skinny blk pants or jns tucked into high or ankle boots...

I second that, it looks lovely with the necklace

Thanks you guys! That's what I'll do. Just needed some reassurance that the rest of it looked proportioned

I will give it another try with all your helpful comments in mind. The belt thing was blocking me & maybe no belt is the way to go! Many thanks everyone for your helpful replies

that top is very interesting...what about putting it over a ribbed white tank and a full white skirt (like dries)? also, it might look nice with something red...

I agree---the rest of the dress looks like it fits fine.

A lot of times they make the straps way longer than any person could conceivably need. I've fixed straps on more sundresses than I care to count. I don't know what's up with that.

In a lot of catalogue photos, they fix everything with hidden safety pins, anyway. That girl in the catalogue photo probably had it pinned, herself.

i think i agree with evryone else on the top !
looks best open w/no belt & the necklace
would be nice to try different colour combinations underneath !
like the idea of maroon maybe !

i don'tthink this is a particularly flattering dress in general...

i'm going against the grain and saying return it completely...
i'm sure you can do better...
that pouf skirt doesn't do anyone any favours...
...
plus the colour is so difficult unless you have brown skin...

uh-oh...

Well, that's good to know

I was questioning that too and thinking about putting in Yay or Nay. I am a bit pale for the dress and while I'm planning on getting some color, it is a bit on the pricey side for an "it will look good with a tan" dress!

Interesting about the pouf skirt. That was actually what drew me to it! I value your opinion, though. If you say so, it's true!

It was worth a try. The embroidery on it is BEAUTIFUL, but I guess it's not meant to be... * sigh *

Thanks for the insight

And, AYLI, that is true about the straps! I feel the same way about today's jeans. Why are they all 36 inches long?? What percentage of the population is actually that tall??

i agree that the print is lovely...curious...
but imo...that is the only good thing about the dress...
and it's not enough...

it does look expensive...
but i think i'd say this no matter how much it cost...
sorry...

NO! Don't apologize! I'm thankful for the honest opinion

You're right. It's a beautiful print that will work on someone else
