Thanks to this wicked hot dress, I collected hundreds of dollars for Hurricane Sandy relief!
Size worn: 42
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I was attending a holiday event that was raising money for Hurricane Sandy relief, and the director of the event pulled me aside at the beginning of the night and said jokingly "You know, many studies have shown that very attractive women are excellent at raising money", and then asked me if I could go around with him and collect donations for the 50/50 raffle from all of the guests. It was a blast, and all of the gorgeous gold sequins could be seen across the room. It was perfect. I usually don't wear anything with sequins because I think they're going to come off and get all messy, but the quality of this dress could not have been higher. They are tiny, and sewed very very tightly to the dress, so they did not flake off or chafe my skin like I'd expected. Just like any strapless dress, I did have to tug it up now and then, but overall it hugs quite tightly. I got a back up size one bigger (8, or 44), but I ended up wearing my regular size (6 or 42), and it was perfectly snug.
