As Seen on Emily of The Ivory Lane! When the occasion calls for pretty and proper, let the Genteel Breeze Backless Mint Lace Dress sweep you off your feet! Minty green lace is beautifully embroidered all over this lovely midi-length dress, with sweetly scalloped edges along the crew neckline, sheer short sleeves, and hemline, as well as an open back cutout that'll put a little twinkle in your eye. Darted bust tapers into a cinched waist, where multiple pleats gently flare into a modest A-line skirt. Invisible back zipper/hook clasp. Dress is lined; sleeves are sheer. Fit runs a little wide. Model is wearing a size small. 100% Polyester. Dry Clean Only. Imported.

First off, the overlay on the dress is mint colored too.. In the picture it looked white to me so I thought I'd pair it with a mint belt and heels. The neck on the dress was much smaller on mine than in the picture. It was literally up to my neck. The dress was not flattering on me at all. Literally made me look like a baby doll (not in a good way). I'm 5' 11'' and usually wear Medium, but after reading reviews got the small and it fit perfectly. The length was good (even on my tall self) but it just was not meant for me!
I loved this dress! I wore it to my brother's college graduation and if I had any weddings to go to this summer, I would wear this dress without hesitation. I was a little worried when I saw the reviews that said the dress was poor quality, but I would say those people had simply received a defective item. The lace on my dress was beautiful! I think this dress is a must have in a summer wardrobe because it is dressy enough and conservative enough to be worn anywhere, but the open back gives it a fun, modern flair. I would recommend this dress to everyone!
This dress is so beautiful. I am using it for my Wedding next year. It is a great length for a wedding (down to your knees). Some may think it's too long for an everyday summer dress. I am usually a small, sometimes medium depending on brand. I was surprised when I got it that it was still fairly big in my rib cage and bust area. I usually have issues with cap sleeves cause I have muscular arms, but the arms were good. I would DEFINITELY get a size smaller then you usually get, unless you need an extra small cause they don't offer that. I was in love with the color and was not disappointed when it arrived. Beautiful light mint. Soft on the eyes. The lace was beautiful, but be careful cause since it literally is ALL lace, it catches on everything. Other then that it is a beautiful dress and definitely worth the purchase. I also checked with alterations, and yes this dress CAN be altered - for all those too tiny for smalls. :) Hope this helped and happy shopping!
I bought this dress for a wedding that I was attending. The keyhole back and the color were too cute for summer! When I received it I was disappointed that the lace is much thicker and cheaper in person. This feels like a dress my grandmother would wear. The length is so awkwardly long. If you plan on buying this buy it a size smaller. I am 5'9 and 140 lbs and I bought a size small and it fit like a glove. I would not recommend it but if you plan on buying it SIZE DOWN
I was so excited to wear this dress to an upcoming wedding. It was delivered to work, and I couldn't wait to try it on! Right out of the box I was disappointed. The lace had lots of pulls and threads hanging around. I still had faith that it would look good on, though. I'm not entirely sure who this would look good on--the length is all wrong. The arm holes are small-ish and the bottom is a bit poofy. The color is really pretty, but I couldn't get past feeling like it'd look better on an 85 year old woman who was probably over 6' tall. It looked very cheap to top it off. Have to return immediately.

I bought this dress as a rehearsal dinner dress for my upcoming wedding, but it just doesn't look as good in person. The crochet-like outer layer looks like a doily that you might find at your grandmother's house. The very modest neckline and cap sleeves do not help. The dress is also fairly long, as you can tell from the picture. All in all, this makes it seem rather frumpy and overly modest despite the open back.
I adore this dress! I have started shopping early for a slew of summer weddings, and this is the first dress to make the cut. Mint is SO in for weddings coming up, and I love lace, so this is perfect. The lace does look a little cheap, but the cut and everything else makes up for it. That's the only reason I don't rate this 5/5. I also thought the fit would be a bit tighter...I'm 5'7" 140 lbs. and consider myself athletic/hourglass and I was surprised the small wasn't skin tight. I assumed I'd have to diet to fit into this well, but I could have it taken in if I really wanted to. Keep that in mind. Overall, this is such a lovely dress and I am so excited to wear it! I'm pairing it with simple nude patent Louboutin platforms.
I purchased this dress for my Maid of Honor at my wedding. It was the perfect color, but sadly it was poor quality in my opinion. Runs large, lace has a more metallic sheen. Not very comfortable. The lining is sewn inside out. I don't know if that was done on purpose, but it made it very static so it clings to you. In conclusion I would may 20 bucks for this, not 70.
I absolutely love this dress. The lace and color are beautiful. As stated the dress does run wide. I was able to purchase a small and it fit me like a glove. I am a typical pear shape and my hips had no problems fitting in this dress. I would recommend if you are small on top that you size down. The quality looks wonderful. I am 5'4' and the dress goes to my knees. I think with a low back bra you would be able to wear the dress and not have your bra show on the back cutout. Highly recommend. I just need to decide if I keep both colors I bought- yellow and mint,
