The picture is deceiving
I really wanted to love this piece as I tried on several other blushers and fell in love with blushers in general — not to mention that I have VW's basket weave organza gown with floral detail which would have matched perfectly. Two things not apparent in the image — if you have any dress in ivory this will NOT match it colorwise. The flowers and netting are very much white/soft white. Also, the netting falls over the face in an awkward and undesirable way. (Perhaps this would have been better as a headband instead of a comb?) The image is quite deceiving and is most likely photoshopped or rigged in a way that is of course extremely flattering on the model, but doesn't show that there are a million bobby pins and such on the side of her face that's not showing. Such a disappointment considering this piece matches so well with many of the VW gowns. On the upside, the piece seems to photograph well and the little gray flowers can be bent into place.
