Whimsical

The color of this dress is so beautiful, it's hard to capture in a photograph. The scalloped trim and ruffled neckline gave it such a fun twist. It could be worn to pretty much anything- wedding, cocktail event, even daytime with flats walking around town. Fabric is a little thicker but doesn't wrinkle easily and isn't too boxy. Loved wearing this dress!

Very unique and gorgeous dress. Love the classic cut with the twist of the ruffles.

It was smaller than expected. I could have still worn it but because it was a mini dress I would have preferred it not as fitted.

Gorgeous color, perfect length (I'm 5' 2"), beautiful material. Got so many compliments!

Wore this for a charity event for which purple was the theme color as it is the color of Domestic Violence Awareness. Everything about this dress was PERFECT. Gorgeous color, great fit, loved the scalloping at neck and hem. Perfect length for me (5'2"). So many compliments. Honestly, I'd like to BUY this dress. Can I?????

Beautiful, unique dress for any occasion!

This Giambatista Valli dress is fun, flirty, and elegant! It has some stretch so is very easy to wear and fit. Plus, the fabric is very comfortable as it's not too heavy and not too light, AND is not itchy at all, even for someone with suuuuper sensitive skin like me. I would recommend it! -Axelle @axelle_claire

Short

This dress is much shorter than it seemed on the model. For me it was loose through the waist and fitted around the hips. Not flattering. This could be solved by going up a size, but the fabric is a bit heavy and stiff to be worn loose so I'm not sure this would be flattering either. I would only recommend this dress for ladies with a more straight line figure. Final warning - the ruff around the neck also feels much larger once you put the dress on.
