Needle & Thread Dress Review

Below is the dress that I wore to the black tie (optional) event I went to this past weekend along with some pics from the event and a quick review of the dress. 
I found Needle & Thread while browsing the ASOS website. The pieces are all hand beaded which adds to the price point, but I found all the dresses to be unique and I had a hard time picking only one out to try. I ended up choosing Geo Sundown dress. It has all-over sequins along with some different sized beading in a geometric pattern on the front. The sizes range from US2 to US10. ASOS's US2s are generally the equivalent of size US0 or 00 so that's the size I bought. Unfortunately, it turned out the US2 was true to size. However, I ended up keeping the dress because I didn't want it to be a tight mini-dress - I wanted it to be sort of classy, and the looser fit made it more of a shift style dress and the longer length made it appropriate for a work event. Overall, I was impressed with the quality of the dress and I would definitely purchase another (if I have another fancy event to attend). Right now, Needle & Thread is still a fairly new company - their website isn't even fully functioning yet (says coming 2014), but you can check out the website to see where you can purchase the items in your country.

Dress: Needle & Thread (same dress but different color here, midi length here)
Silver shoes: Calvin Klein
Bracelet: David Yurman
Clutch: (barely pictured) Amazon
(Note: the clutch is really small - I could fit my iPhone (barely), some money, my ID, a credit card, and my apartment key - that's it. No room for lipstick or gum. Still a pretty clutch though)
