Horrified by my purchase
I bought this dress based on the gorgeous picture and trusting other reviews that said this was a little bright but really cute and am absolutely horrified by what just arrived in the mail. Let me preface this by saying I love Tracy Reese and I love so many things that come from the Urban Outfitters company, so I have a hard time believing that what arrived in the mail has any association with either of those brands.
First, when people say "brighter than pictured," they mean "fluorescent yellow with a slightly green tinge." The color is not even close to the nice, buttery yellow pictured.
Second, the slip underneath that looks like it should be satin or silk is actually cheap, thin, shiny polyester. I may be naive, but i do not expect to spend $375 on a dress, only to receive a slip that probably cost no more than $2 to produce.
Third, the lace feels extremely cheap and poorly woven. By the way, it's made of nylon - that's not what lace is supposed to be made out of.
Finally, the "belt" on the waist is made of a cheap cottony material that looks and feels more like what you would see on the waistband of a pair of shorts/on the strap of a gym bag/on a pair of shoelaces rather than on a dress you plan to wear to a formal event.
I have to reiterate: do not buy this dress! It is cheap, tacky and you can find MUCH better for $375.
