Angel Sanchez/Flechada.com Review

I won a dress from Flechada.com a few weeks ago and am finally getting around to reviewing it. I was given my choice of any of these dresses http://flechada.com/sales/angel-sanchez I decided to go for this one http://flechada.com/sales/angel-sanchez/bias-drape-lbd I wasn’t very excited about the dresses, I think mostly because they need a curvier model or to have them displayed better. When it arrived, I was actually really excited because it was much higher quality than it looked in the photos and was much more flattering on me than I had suspected from the model. Mine actually has a little bit different detailing on the neck that I prefer to the one pictured.

This angle isn’t the best and I’m not all done up, but I’m pretty happy with it. It’s much more age appropriate than the LBD I had and I could actually wear this out somewhere. However, the price. This dress was originally listed for $975 and marked down to $293. I think even the sale price is far too high. Yes, the fabric is high quality and the construction is fantastic and it has a boned corset worked in, but I’d never have bought this on my own for that price. I could see it in the $100 range. But then again, I’m one of those people who can’t stand to spend $30 on a T-shirt. I’m sure that it was a steal for someone looking for a designer piece. I’m glad to have it because I wouldn’t have bought it for myself and it looks lovely.
