Wow. I ordered this as sort of a "last-ditch" effort to find something to wear for my elopement, and I think Hitherto hit the mark perfectly with this dress (I tried their Fondant Tea Dress in BHLDN's gowns collection, and it was a huge miss, for me).
The dress has a slight shine to it, the material is gorgeous silk-linen, and it is a silvery, pale gray. I am tall with broad shoulders, and it is very fitted through the bust/top - no extra/loose material. The skirt has either a reinforced or "starched" hemline (from that trim detail down), so it stands away from your frame like an A-line skirt should.
All the neat details and beading make this such a special dress, especially for the money, and I'll be wearing it with the Hey Lady "Elopement" pumps, which cost more than the dress, but they are worth every penny, too. My only complaint would be the packaging, as others have noted - these dresses are expensive enough and of such fine material that they should not arrive folded and badly creased.
