The colors are even more vibrant in person. The skirt Is super pocket plus it has POCKETS, which is so practical.

However, go a size or two up. The elastic waist was so big on me.

Excellent service

Arrived promptly, looks fabulous - very pleased!

Awesome quality and customer service

I needed a African Print dress for a cruise and had been looking for a while. Then one day I came upon the Laviye Instagram page. The dresses were gorgeous, but I was doubtful. I read some of the comments and decided to take a chance. I ordered it Tuesday evening, if I'm not mistaken and the next morning I woke up to a text and email that it was shipped and then the tracking email. I also received another email about the owner and her background and how she got started, which was a great personal touch. My dress came in the matter of days and was exactly what I saw on the page. The color is vibrant and the quality of the dress is awesome. One suggestion is that an illustration card be sent with the multi-wear dress to show how the dress can be worn. I will definitely shop on this site for my dresses.

Thank you

I felt like an african Queen in it. Thank you for the prompt delivery and for the beautiful product.
