STYLIST REVIEW
Who doesn't want to look like Taylor Swift? This dress perfectly mimics the style of the gorgeous teal dress she wore to the 2015 Grammys! The tangerine color is perfect for fall and makes this leggy style a standout among a sea of LBD's. This style can be worn to either a cocktail party or black tie event because of its high low style. Keep in mind, the fabric is sturdy with no stretch, so if you have wider hips like I do, make sure to size up like I did here! The Regular length was a tad short, so if you are over 5'6, I would opt for the Long length. A nubra is a must, as the back is too low to wear a standard strapless bra.

Nice Design
Received this dress with the tags. This dress fit runs small...Additionally, the zipper was difficult to use possibly because it was brand new. Not a stretchy material. Even S was small on me.

Stunning!!
This dress was really fabulous though I don't think pictures do it justice so I am not including mine. The under skirt is SHORT and very sexy but the over skirt allows you to sit and be covered. The Bodice has zero stretch and I think ran a little tight in the rib cage. I ordered the Small and Medium and wore the medium.

Friends said I looked like a model! <3
The dress definitely does run a little smaller, sizing up one size would be the best idea if you're not sure/between sizes. I haven't worn it to my function yet as its this coming weekend, but all my girlfriends say the color is beautiful and are jealous. It is pretty long and even though it's a high low you'll definitely still want to wear heels if you're on the shorter side. I'm 5'4" and am wearing 4.5 inch heels so that the dress won't drag the floor and get stuck under my feet. The zipper is tricky, even when it's on the hanger, but that's almost expected of a dress with seams like this. There's a weird part of the hem on the mini skirt part, where it bubbles up funny but it isn't noticeable as its beneath the longer skirt. The fabric does wrinkle very easily as well so be prepared to spend money to have it steamed. In addition, for the waist to be so small, the chest area is very loose. I'm not a busty girl but I'm far from flat chested as I wear a 32c and there was some weird puckering on the side where my boobs didn't fill it out too well, nothing terribly noticeable it just bothered me a bit. The straps also fall down on the shoulders VERY easily, when I was trying it on for the first time within the first ten minutes I was already getting annoyed with having to continuously pull them back up and adjust them. Overall though it a very beautiful dress, the color is what makes it special. It's not an orange orange but more of a red orange, and it's very bright and happy. The cut is flattering for waists because it flares out right at the smallest part of a woman's body. The fabric is also very sturdy, so I can't imagine you receiving a dress that's been damaged enough to where it's troublesome, or damaging it and having to pay for it yourself for that matter. Overall I'm happy with it and am excited to wear it.

SO many compliments!
Loved the fit, but I would have liked a petite size. It was really long and got stepped on way too much/almost tripped a few times. Granted, I am pretty short (5/5'1 without heels) The straps were loose but nothing double sided fashion tape couldn't fix. I'd rent this dress again.

Very Unique but had hem issues
I loved this dress. If you plan on wearing heels and over 5'7 definitely get the Long. My only issues were that it required a lot of ironing before wearing it and a good amount of fashion tape to correct hem and stitching issues.

OBSESSED. Everything about it, color, details, material. LOVE XX, Dress Up Buttercup
The straps were a little long so I wish the XS zipper wasn't broken so I could wear that. They weren't unbearable. Other than that, it was PERFECT! The cut, the material, all the chic details. I review more about it on my blog post Dress Up Buttercup ( http://dressupbuttercup.com/ellis-island-award-gown/ )

Celeb Status.
This dress was a show stopper. I really don't think I've ever received more compliments on a gown. Know that the bodice is SUPER tight and has zero give. Definitely size up for that. Also the skirt is really short ... And when you walk around the outer layer of the gown totally flows behind you which is pretty dramatic. Ha! I'm pretty extroverted but it was a little much for me. All together I LOVED wearing the dress- great color, super flattering and reminded me of so many of my fav celeb red carpet gowns! Great dress!!

I wore this dress to a formal fundraiser event. I wanted something that was unique and comfortable.
I am usually a 0 or a 2 and the XS was definitely too small. I'd suggest sizing up if you are in between sizes. The dress also came pretty wrinkled, so I would be prepared to steam it before wearing it. As mentioned by others, the under skirt is pretty short, but overall the dress made a statement, especially when you walk. I loved this and would definitely rent it again!

Showstopper!
I wore this gown for my best friends wedding and received countless compliments!! The vibrant color was awesome for the setting we were in. Bodice of the dress runs very tight, I tend to have a little bit wider rib cage so towards the end of the night (after lots of eating an drinking) I couldn't breathe.... But I loved it. Would def recommend!

Beautiful,small! I'm usually a size 0-2 in dresses and get an XS. But this really is EXTRA small!
The fabric, color and cut are very beautiful. It is a very T-swift type of gown, so if you want this looking good on you, think very skinny and very tall! Or get the petite size.

Wore this to an evening wedding reception. It's so fun to dance in!Just enough sexy & coverage.
This size fit me perfectly but I could see how it might run small considering this size on me, was just the right "snug" in the right places. I definitely wanted a back up size but they didn't have it available so I took a chance. The straps do exactly what everyone has said - they fall all the time. Minimal in my opinion. And the zipper did what lots of gals have said - it gets stuck or is super hard to zip up. So expect to get it on and not take it off until you're ready to never wear it again :) Also, I got so many compliments that if you're hesitant to try this yourself, don't be. You will not regret it! Have fun!

This dress would have been beautiful for an outdoor wedding, but I ended up using a different dress
The dress itself is so beautiful, but it runs very small. I ended up only getting the Large Long size because the medium was returned damaged by the last renter, but it didn't matter because the large was so tight up top I couldn't even wear it.

A night to remember in an unforgettable dress!
People GAWKED over this dress on me. It is so flattering if you have long legs, but plan on wearing heels because the skirt was somewhat long. The waist part was tight so I would size up for your extra size, and not go longer with the length. I felt fabulous in this dress and wish I could relive the night over and over again.
