    Ooh I love it!
    The colour is lovely and I like the jagged edge detail at the bust.
    Simple but very pretty 🙂

    Not sure. I like the cut and neckline, but the super-shiny fabric reminds me of those huge discount formal/prom/bridesmaid dress shops (“Polyester-R-Us”) and it cheapens the look for me.

    Well, if the aubergine color isn’t your style, then you could always try it in gold. 😀
    Obviously, I like this one. Particularly the color. I’d really like to know how this one feels both to wear and to touch.

    I’m indifferent. It looks like every standard-issue homecoming dress that I’ve ever seen.

    I really like the color and the styling of the dress, and I think the neckline makes it unique. However, I agree that the shiny fabric isn’t so great. It gives it that generic prom/homecoming dress look. Plus, shiny fabric isn’t exactly the most flattering option for girls such as myself who are sporting minor tummy pooches.

    that shiny fabric isn’t right for the design, takes away from the great detail.

    I’d kill for that dress, and I don’t even wear skirts.

    Interesting details, but the overall impression is “80’s prom dress”.
