Rated 3 out of 5 by Princetongal Knock out dress but design flaw
The Augusta Shift is a knock out -- gorgeous fabric (looks even better in person) and beautiful fit BUT in the samples at my Lilly store the circles that are part of the beautiful bands of lace don't stay up but flop over. This is true for the circles at the top of the band, not the bottom and not every circle curls over, but enough do that it is a problem. At first I thought, this dress is so beautiful that I will buy it anyway and find a way to either sew or glue the circles so they stay in place, but then I thought, no for almost $300 I shouldn't have to fix the dress. What a shame there wasn't better quality control because this dress is absolutely gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EAB13 Great, FItted dress
I absolutely love this dress. It looks much more stunning in person. The detailing doesn't pop online as it does in person. It definitely hugs your curves- very fitted through the waist/hips. Will be a staple in my wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Addie Perfect for a summer wedding!
I was a little worried that I would see myself coming& going (mostly on cute 20-year-olds), but since I bought this dress the day after I received my catalog, I was the first & only!
Not sure of how formal this outdoor wedding was, the timeless Lily style dress dressed up with gold & white lace was perfect.
That said, I had really wanted the Della Scalloped dress, as it looked dressier, but SO ridiculously short! What a mistake... Not only limits the purchase to young girls, but at that length, the style isn't flattering with the pattern! Really too bad.
Also loved the Gabby dress, but they didn't have my size. Very helpful salesgirl offered to order it, but I needed it right away.
Still, very happy with the dress I got, it will see lots of parties for years to come.. I have several 'vintage' styles..timeless!

I purchased this dress for a summer wedding; and I am absolutely in love with it! The dress is beautiful in person; and it's even better on! The navy makes it sophisticated, while the white and gold details give the dress a little pop! It's also a dress I know I'll be able to wear again to other events - perfect with a pair of gold slide-on sandals or with a pair of strappy open-toe heels! Definitely recommend giving it a try!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AmberAP27 Beautiful online and in person
I'm a sucker for navy anyway, but navy, gold and white?? Love it! Online you can't really see it, but the navy fabric has a cute little anchor detailing in the print -- not too much to be "too much", but a really nice touch within the dress! The only complaint I have is that the "V" comes down very far, so your bra tends to show -- perhaps that's just me, but I do have that issue. Also, some of the little circles on the gold/white bands flop over, but that's not a big deal to me. Overall, I would certainly recommend this dress for fancy date nights or for weddings!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adrienne SO Flattering!!!
The photo does not do this dress justice. When I saw it in the store, I had to try it on. The fit is very flattering, and runs true to size. I took my normal dress size 2 in this dress. Even the navy has little anchors in the fabric. A must have from this delivery!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CathyH Runs small for large bust
I wear a medium in most Lilly tops and a size 8 in Lilly shorts and skorts. I needed a size 12 in this dress. If you are top heavy, this dress is not true to size.
