on the shorter side
This dress looked like a clubbing dress because of the length. I'm sure it's perfect for 18-25s but any older or curvier and it looks like you're on a night out, lol. Size wise I had to get an extra small to fit in the body but it looked way too short. I'd say great if you've got long flawless legs that you want to show off. Otherwise it's just not really appropriate or flattering. Shame because otherwise it's beautiful. Lovely color, pretty lace. A bit longer and I would have bought it! A little A-line and I'd have gone wild for it and bought it in every color ;-)

Effortless Elegance
I know I must have been living under a rock but I didn't even know of Raquel Allegra before this dress. I do now! The quality of the lace is not visible in the photo. The color is a bit more on the ivory side than white, which is fine by me. I usually get a small top and medium bottoms but I ordered a medium (size two) and. it. is. perfect! I am overjoyed as getting anything over 300 online is always a gamble. I looked in Harvey nics, harrods and selfridges and I'm telling you right now there is no better dress for this price. I tried the DVF lace dress and it was so badly cut I needed a four to fit me but it was way too short. Tried an Alice & Olivia dress (white top/black skirt) also cut for stick insects. The stretch in this Raquel Allegra dress means it's perfect for hourglass figures! I love it! Worth every penny! Couldn't be happier! Great quality!

The best workout pants ever
These are amazing. So flattering and very functional. I had to have them shortened but I think that's kind of a given. I'm 5'7 with a long torso and shorter legs.

Great from the front
I find these jeans flatten my butt. Not a great look. I think it must be the material. I usually stick to jeans that are ninety -something percent cotton and some elastic material. These have polyester. They look great from the front as leggings but not so great on the butt. Possibly why, in retrospect, the model in the video is wearing a longer top. If you have an awesome butt you could get away with these but for anyone with a less than awe inspiring butt they are not the most flattering. That being said, I do like them. They are comfy and who knows maybe if I work on my butt and with wear, they'll look better? For now I'll probably wear then with a long cardigan. Shame, as I wouldn't have guessed this from the other reviews.

Hot!
This dress is terrific. Wear with black tights and boots if less than perfecr legs. Neckline and ruching very flattering. Awesome value. Wear and wear. Not too short.

Beauty is more than looks
These look great, but the leather is very hard. I personally love nice soft nappa leather or in between. This gives me blisters on the ankle everytime I wear them. My ankles litterally bleed. Coco Chanel wisely said luxury is not luxury unless it's comfortable. I'd trade these in an instant. Plus, as other reviewers have said, it's very tight around the ankle, and in a struggle to get them on/off the heel pulled away. I will have to take them to a repair shop - not the quality one would expect. But they really do look good! So maybe I can have a friend break them in. Or pad up my ankle first.

Great if you have narrow feet
If you have narrow feet and have horses or live in the country-side these are worth every penny. They look so good on, I'm not even kidding. They are so practical (being rubber). The downside for me is that my foot was a little too wide, and whilst in a leather/suede shoe that is not a problem because it stretches, rubber does not. I just couldn't justify spending so much on something that wasn't comfortable. It is extremely rare for me to send anything back, but sadly with these I had to.

Can't wait for the holiday party season
I'm going to kick off the party season in style with this feminine clutch. Perfect for putting my cash, keys, and glasses (when I go to the opera)! Not too small like some. Lovely.
