This dress is beautiful and elegant! Unfortunately, the sizing chart was inaccurate and it is much bigger than I expected--I will have to take it in quite a bit. However, the design of the dress makes it so that all you have to do is shorten the chiffon straps across the back, without having to mess with the front (thank goodness, with all that pleating and draping). Some of the sewing on the seams is a bit sloppy, but for $149, I wasn't expecting couture perfection! The eggplant color is just like the picture and the gem detailing on the strap is gorgeous (unlike many prom/evening dresses with cheap-looking plastic beads or sequins). I think they are transparent plastic with crinkly foil inside, which gives it a somewhat metallic shimmer. It is my bridesmaid dress for my sister's wedding and I am so looking forward to wearing it (she loves it too)! I love it, and love promgirl for shipping it SO quickly!
