Pictures cannot do it justice, you have to see how it moves!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Hardest thing about deciding on this dress is figuring out what color it actually is. I knew exactly what I was getting, because I tried the dress on first in the BCBG store, but for those of you not sure, this dress is a BRIGHT EMERALD GREEN (closest to the shots with flash). For that reason, it just does not photograph well, it's literally a non-photo green, the color they use for green screens.
Another thing you cannot tell from the pics is how beautifully this dress moves. It's very fine and wispy, and flutters like a breeze when you walk. There's something that looks like a short flap across the front in the RTR pic - that didn't exist on my dress. It has a VERY short mini-skirt in the underlayer, and once you get to walking, that fluttery dress flies all the way open - so if you are needing more coverage, keep the fashion tape handy.
I said true to size, but I think it's a hair on the big side. I can't always fit into a 4.
It is truly a beautiful, goddessy dress. When I came out of the dressing room with this one on in store, people were gasping all over the place.
