Hi bees, a few people have PMed me asking for a review of TheCelebrityDresses.com…Here you go! Here is the dress I bought:
Overall I found the experience to be very good. They are very responsive to email (just give them overnight for time difference) and it was delivered entirely within the time they specified. Their customer service seemed solid (I emailed a few times with questions).
As for the dress. The quality was pretty great. The material itself was on the slightly thinner side, but the workmanship was excellent (I sew, so I have some understanding).
The kicker? I didn’t love the style on me. It was a bit of a drop waist, more so than I thought it would be, which I didn’t love on my figure. The top also had a full, very well made built in corset, which I was pretty surprised about. Since it’s just a cocktail dress, I thought it might be a little simpler, and sort of wished it was. Like I said, the lining and boning was very well made, it just seemed like a bit ‘much’ for a cocktail dress.
If you’re contemplating ordering from them, I would definitely make sure that you have tried on a similar style dress so you won’t be surprised by the style. I just took a gamble, didn’t end up working out for me, but hey, now everyone gets a review out of it! I would probably order from them again if I knew what I was looking for as they really do have some cool styles.
Additionally, make sure to click on the color swatch chart when deciding. THEN, make sure to click on the “Click to View Real Fabric Samples” to see the actual sample. I did not do this. Oddly, I ordered ‘Royal Blue,’ then realized I really wanted the ‘Dark Royal Blue,’ but when I got it, it was actually the color I wanted. A dark royal blue. I know that isn’t entirely helpful, but maybe specify in the request. I was kicking myself for not looking at the link originally, but actually ended up with the right color if that makes sense.
Lastly, their return policy and all that looks pretty complicated, so I just didn’t bother. I know other sites probably have easier policies, which might be something worth looking into.
Would love to hear anyone else’s experience as well. Hope this helps!
