I bought this dress and it was the first dress I tried on! I fell in love with it. The lace detail is beautiful with the sheer detailing on the straps. It is form fitting and then flairs to make it a beautiful, stunning dress. I bought the floor sample and have not had any alterations done. I was going to have it altered to my size (size 4) which I was instructed is very doable, but then I went to try on more dresses, since this was my first one. Well after that I decided to go strapless!! The sash was purchased separately but is included in the price, you can wear it or not. It is a beautiful rhinestone sash with satin ties. This dress has never been worn, and has had no alterations. Purchased two weeks ago in 12/2015. The picture with me in it was at the store when I purchased it. Please feel free to ask questions. The dress was a floor sample, but has never been worn outside of the shop. measurements listed are designer measurements since the dress has not been altered or hemmed.
