Q & As


Ariella Rafaella Velvet Dress, Red 4.5 5 2 2
Beautiful Fits like a dream. Size is a perfect match. Doesn't crease. Lovely colour, simple design but elegant and timeless.. Perfect for my work party this Saturday. 10 December 2013
So close to being a perfect dress... Gorgeous fabric and colour, lovely detailing at neckline (front and back) and for once the perfect length! I'm 5ft 7 and it was an inch off the floor in heels. But not at all fitted around the waist which made it a bit shapeless and not quite right for me - perfect though if you don't want to draw attention to your waist. True to size otherwise and lined which really makes it hang well and skim your figure. Very classy! 06 December 2013
