Silk San Marco Dress

Item #B30519
Was: £0.00
Now: £0.00
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress I thought that the San Marco dress was really beautiful in the catalog and decided to order one. I loved the dress, but it was too big for me and I knew that the next size down would be too small, so unfortunately, I didn't keep the dress. One think that I found was that the balloon hem will catch on things, like chair handles, and I was worried I would tear the dress, as the silk fabric is very fine and thin. I still recommend the dress if you want a nice evening dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't look like the photo but a great buy This dress looks nothing and I mean nothing like the photo. It is not at all metallic and has greys and light browns in it. It is still pretty cool and something different to wear to a black tie event. Great fit and super lightweight. I am a size 10 and it fits like a perfect 10.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not what I'd hoped This was a lovely dress but like another reviewer, I thought there were some metallic threads in the fabric. I wish I would have checked the reviews more carefully before ordering. I was looking for a very dressy special occasion evening wear outfit and without the sparkle, this didn't quite fit the bill so I returned it. The sizing was perfect for me. I usually order S or size 4.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sewn correctly The hem of this dress was sewn at an angle. At first I thought perhaps that was intentional until I looked at the back with was part at an angle, part straight and part at an increased angle. Some was actually longer than the rest. You'd think at this price they'd get it right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but not what I was expecting This is a truly beautiful, elegant, and high quality dress (which is why I gave it a good rating). I'm returning it because from the pictures, I thought that the bronze color was metallic, but it isn't. It's a taupey, matte shade. The effect is very beautiful, but it isn't what I was after (I really loved the idea of a little shine interwoven with the black). Still, the silk is very light and floaty--the slight amount of volume at the skirt even seems to give it a little translucency (in a good way) in the right light. If things were more solvent at the moment I would keep it anyway, but at the moment I can't justify paying that price for something that wasn't what I wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning The dress is as beautiful in real life as in catalog. Material is very light, not bulky around the bottom / hem. Colors pretty close o how appears in catalog. I wear a 8 and fits perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Dress I was concerned that the volume of the skirt might make me look heavy, but the fabric is really light weight. The styling of the top is also very lightweight and doesn't add any volume. There is a little bit of sparkle in the fabric which add a dressy feel to the dress. I intend to wear it to a wedding this fall and I think it will be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress I salivated when I saw this dress in the catalog. The colors are wonderful. It's a bit expensive, but the quality is excellent, and it's a beautiful dress. I'm wearing it tomorrow evening for the first time for a romantic dinner with my husband.
