My favorite dress
I'm short. At only 5 ft tall, I have a hard time finding dresses that fit correctly. I'm a 34C, 124 lbs, short waisted and slim hipped with broad shoulders. This dress fits great, although a little longer than I would like. I bought a size 4, and you can see where it hits me a little above the knees. That's totally understandable, though, and I'm just happy it's not longer. There's an almost imperceptible bulge of extra fabric on the back. I haven't gotten it tailored and nobody has noticed, so I think that's fine. I love this dress. It's so elegant and wearable to anything!

A little loose
The box left on my doorstep was half broken and saran wrapped together, and I worried that my shoes were destroyed in the shipping. Thank goodness they were fine, (the shoe box couldn't be saved, though), and they were truly a beautiful pair, however loose on my size 6 feet. Hence the 4 stars. I have wide, flat feet, and there is still about a 1/4 inch gap where my heels should be. But I will have to make do because a) they don't have a smaller size, and b) I bought it on sale.

Love it
I splurged on three hair adornments, and this one is by far my best buy. I tuck the band into my hair, similar to the model, so you don't see the ends of the band sticking out behind my ears. Very versatile, I can wear it casually or a little more dressed up. 5 stars from this picky girl!

not quite
I'm a little torn about this one. On the one hand, it's very distinctive. You can wear the the three rows of rhinestones hanging down the side of your head (not quite centered; if you look at our left side of the model's head, you can see the three half rhinestone strings looped within the band).
However, a couple of things. The leaves are actually cut out velvet material, and I felt that the one I received had tinier leaves than pictured. I thought they would stand out bigger, as pictured, but they actually look itty bitty when I try to make them poke out. Next, the rhinestone strings pull hair. Lots of hair. So watch out for that.
I want to give it 4 stars for the distinctive design, but 3 stars for construction. I guess I'll settle for 4 stars since 3.5 is not available.

 Marzipan Halo Headband
Marzipan Halo Headband
This pearly, organza bow on a wide matching band is so sweet, we wouldn't be surprised if we were told it was spun from sugar. By Giovannio. Sinamay, glass, elastic. Imported.

Not as pictured!
Where do I start? I was super excited when this came in the mail. Opened it and tried it on and, yep, like the last reviewer, found the band way too big and loose!
First, heads are not shaped like that. The band is about an inch and a half in width, and when I put it on (picture it), the bow was actually on my forehead because the band was so loose. It doesn't conform to your head, either, because the material is so stiff. So you have excess band sticking out of your head
I keep looking at this beautiful picture they have here, and it just doesn't look like that. Clearly, the head band on the model was fitted to her head. Unless you want to do some DIY or tailor it, skip this buy. It's gorgeous but poorly designed.
