I am so enchanted with this dress that I have had a hard time letting go, but alas, I don’t think I will have another event to wear it to. I originally bought this Girl by Band of Outsiders silk-chiffon dress from Net-a-Porter after seeing it featured on a write-up on blush colored dresses here on Once Wed in 2012. It arrived and was beautiful and stunning. It is very bohemian and ethereal. You will feel like a gorgeous fairy princess. I never ended up wearing it to my wedding because we decided on a remote beach location that would be difficult to walk to with a flowy train, so I switched to a short dress. However, it was already far past net-a-porter’s return date when I decided, so now I have this beautiful unworn dress to sell. The small details make this a unique and special dress. The majority of the dress is made from a beautiful blush colored silk chiffon, which is layered over inserts of tulle so the dress doesn’t end up hanging completely flat and gives it a light bounce when you twirl. It also comes with two different bohemian woven rope belts that you can choose to wear or not wear.
The fit of the dress depends more on your bra size, less on your usual dress size. I am a 32A and the size 0 dress fit perfectly, even though I normally wear a casual size 2 when buying dresses. I would not recommend buying this dress if you are larger than a 32A bra size, however, you could easily get this brought in a little if you are more petite.
