Rated 3 out of 5┬áby eyes777 Weird Shoulders
I fell in love with this dress when I saw it online, however I noticed that the shoulders look nice on the model, but may look strange when tried on. I was exactly right! When I tried it on in store the entire fit of the dress was beautiful, except for the shoulders! Please do not get me wrong... this dress did not flatter my upper body, but for someone who has skinny arms this would look great on you. My arms are an area I try to hide and this dress accentuated them. Also, this dress ran large as I am 5'8 and usually wear and 8, but that was too big. Take my advice and try it on in store before you spend the $300!!!

I disagree with the other two reviewers. I found myself drawn to the dress because of the shoulders. The unique square cut at the sleeves and the lacy detail at the neck is what made this dress stand out for me. I purchased it for a wedding this weekend and I think it is the absolute perfect dress. I would consider myself to have pretty muscular shoulders, being a former gymnast, and I didn't feel like it made them any bigger at all. I thought the wider shoulder up top actually made my waist look smaller. Dress runs a tad big too, which always makes a girl feel better about herself. I bought a 4 but I'm normally a 6......... The color is stunning- can be worn into the holiday season as an off shade of green. Would look gorgeous with a magenta lip and with any type of animal print accessories. Delicate dress but could be make tougher with a leather jacket, tailored blazer, or dark hued belt. Beyond perfect purchase. Perhaps it's a dress that needs to be tried on in-store.

Fell in love with this dress today. The previous reviews are correct in that the color is much darker/deeper in person. This dress fit perfectly except that it was a little snug in the chest area-- although It still fit. I didn't have any trouble with the design of the shoulder area. I actually love the top- I'm going to be wearing this dress to a wedding and I didn't want a spaghetti strap- but also didn't want awkward sleeves- perfect compromise!
