I ordered this item and was pleasantly surprised to have it delivered practically the next day! The packaging seemed like a present rather than something that had arrived by mail order, complete with gold tissue, a candy cane and a 10% discount card for use within the next 6 weeks.
The dress itself is beautiful. I thought it was just an off white until I tried it with a white clutch and saw that it really is ivory as described. The fabric is suitably heavy for the draping effect it has and it fits perfectly, just like in the photo. I'm a size 10 and ordered a 10, I found the sizing accurate. I'm not really into broach-type things and had planned to get rid of the clasp when I saw the picture, but on the actual dress itself it is spot-on and gives a very classy and elegant finish to the dress. I'm so impressed with it that I've now ordered one in red for myself too! I'm really tempted to buy the purple as well but I'm exercising restraint. Another selling point for me is that I think I am unlikely to see anyone else wearing this out which can sometimes happen when you buy something from the high street and wear it out in the same season. Nothing wrong in that, but personally for me, unless I'm a bridesmaid I'd prefer not to be in the same outfit as someone at the same event.
