 Citrine Rose Peplum Dress
Citrine Rose Peplum Dress
James Coviello's dress immediately caught our collective eye. We couldn't believe the amount of detail that was poured into such an easy, knee-length silhouette - from a sequined scoopneck and peplum to velvet bow-bedecked straps and a petal-rich applique. Side zip. Silk; polyester lining. Dry clean. Imported. A James Coviello original, made exclusively for BHLDN Falls 29" from natural waist

Stunning piece.. worth every penny.
I'm from the UK and am a UK size 8, and have always had a problem converting to US sizes. Apparently UK8 is a US4 but I've always found this too big, and having only ever bought things online was wary of trying a size down as I'm never a UK6! However, I went by the measurements given for the dress and went with a size 2. It fitted perfectly - so whatever you do, check the measurements given against your own, as they are 100% correct. I would think that if you were very busty then it may not be the dress for you, so avoid if you are top heavy, but I think this will flatter almost anyone. I am not particularly curvy and have a fairly small bust and back.
The dress is gorgeous. I wore it for my brother's wedding after searching for something unique and special for over a year, including many top designer brands.
It's very fine, soft peachy silk with a shiny satin silk that shimmers through. Knee length (flattering for the legs), floaty, understated but rich in design and ornamentation, it's a real find and a treasure. I couldn't recommend it more.
Yes, I agree with the last reviewer about having to be very careful with the zip, as the top layer of fabric is incredibly delicate and prone to snagging on anything!
