Pisarro Nights Beaded Illusion Cocktail Dress
Pretty but Runs Large
Ordered size 10, usual size in Pisarro Nights. Style runs very large. Alteration near impossible with side zipper. Try ordering at least one size down if available. I will be returning this dress. Disappointed but will try another Pisarro Nights style.
just didn't fit well - very big around the waist. maybe that is the "shift dress" style, but not very "va va voom" which is what I want in a beaded cocktail dress. too bad because otherwise I loved it.
This dress is gorgeous but BE WARNED- the color is nothing like in the picture. It is almost a navy blue at a glance, you have to look at it closely to notice the greyish/slate color, but I have to say the sparkles stand out much better on the darker color than in the picture. I ordered 2 sizes and I'm normally an 8 but was elated when my daughter told me the 6 looked better. So I'm guessing it runs slightly larger. Overall it is a beautiful dress and you won't need any jewelry or fancy pumps to dress it up because it is fancy as is.
So I bought this dress in a 12 and 14, as well as the Pisarro Nights Shift Dress in a 12 and 14--all online. I had a "Paris Chic 1920's" black tie fundraiser to go to, and I had no idea what to wear. I wound up wearing this dress in size 14--think it fit true to size, regrettably :)--and within five minutes someone complimented me on it. I felt like a million bucks! The shift dress was cute, too, but fit a little more snug than this one. I have a muffin top I'm working on and I felt this dress did a good job of hiding it! I had read previous reviews about sequins falling off--not a problem here. Couldn't have been more pleased. I would highly recommend this dress!
