for like $40 cheaper. Since I have bought many things from sites like these, I must say that in my experience, Hautelook always has the cheapest prices for the same brand/merchandise that appear on other sites. But they also tend to have cheaper brands in general - very little "high end" brands. I find Gilt to be the most expensive for the most part and has the best brands. Ruelala and ideeli are about the same in the middle somewhere. Oh well! You win some and you lose some I suppose. Though the dress is very pretty and flattering! So I'm still happy about that.
This dress is from Sue Wong's Walt Disney Collection. She was inspired by Alice in Wonderland, all the flowers, the ethereal look, and the white queen!
I loooove it! I think the flower details are so pretty. And it's great that they are on the shoulders, the waistband, and the bottom band. I got it in a size 6, same as my other Sue Wong dress, it is a little loose on the top. But I think a size 4 would have been a little too tight. So I'm really like a size 5 with Sue Wong dresses. I really like how this dress fits around the waist though. It's perfect, and gives you a very slim waisted look. It also has lightly padded bra cups built in which I love, especially since you can't really wear a bra with the open back of this dress. I think Sue Wong is on Ruelala tomorrow or Thursday... might have to check it out.
I think this is due to shipping, but the dress doesn't drape as well on the bottom as the picture shows. There are wrinkles on the silk, so it just kind of sits on top of the bottom band of flowers all flat, not bubbly like it's supposed to be. I guess I have to try to iron out the wrinkles and see if it flows better. Because right now it's covering about half way of the pretty flowers on the band! I wish they had shipped it in a hard box instead of a soft bag! I really need to find more occasions to wear this dress to. My fiance said it could be a summer day dress but I think it's too dressy looking for that. But maybe it could work as just a nice dinner dress.
