 Vernal Tieback Dress
Vernal Tieback Dress
Strokes of lavender, lilac, and wisteria converge on this dolman-sleeved Tracy Reese original. Beads in still another shade of purple line both hemline and sleeves, while a tieback waist cinches for an unabashed feminine look. Pullover. Silk; acetate lining. Dry clean. Imported. • A Frock! by Tracy Reese original, exclusive to BHLDN • Falls 23” from natural waist

Not the same dress as in the picture. For the worse.
I fell in love with this dress, and I read and ignored another review stating that it is not the same as it is pictured. Well, it's really not what it looks like here. Instead of the light, soft, blue and white dress in the photo, it is the kind of vivid purple and blue that I haven't worn since I was 10. The fabric isn't really soft either - it too looks and feels different. It could not be worn casually or to work, which is what I wanted to do.
Well, I usually wear a 2, but I thought it would look kind of fun looser, so I got a 4. Bad idea - just get the correct size with this one. Oh, and the lining feels kind of juvenile as well - mostly just the way it falls under the top layer.

Just like pictured
This bolero is just like it is pictured... I would say that next to a white dress, it does look more on the silver side, but very very cute. I am 5'6" 120lbs and got the Small. Probably could have gotten an XS because of the nature of boleros.

Fits well, pretty
This fit true to size. I wear a 32 D or a 34 C and bought the 34 C. It fit fine.
The lace is a bit cheaper looking in person, but otherwise, it looks similar to how it is pictured.
I would recommend it in general, but maybe not for the price. I returned mine.

Beautiful, but pretty small
These are beautiful. However, I have small to normal sized hands, but could not get them all the way down my fingers.
Also, seeing as they are probably going to be used by brides, you couldn't wear a ring that sticks up. Even if you could manage to squeeze them on, the ring would snag.
