The dress was a knockout-----it was completely appropriate, but stood out in the crowd.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
We were invited to attend an engagement party for a close friend's daughter at a gorgeous home. I was uncertain as to how dressy to be......should I wear a cocktail dress or just dressy pants and a cute top? Recently I had received a $50 coupon toward my first rental, so I turned to a RTR stylist for advice. As I am only 5' tall, my first request to my stylist was to help me find dresses that were no longer than 35" from shoulder to hem. In addition, I am 57 years old, so I didn't want to show my arms. Armed with all those demands, she offered several options that were not too glitzy for a home cocktail party, were short enough for my 5' frame, and also covered up my arms. I loved this Shoshanna lace dress, but was afraid that a straight shift would not be good for my hourglass figure. But since my stylist knew the dress, she was able to assure me that it was tailored to accent my waist and would be a perfect fit. She was right! The dress was just right.....appropriate for the home affair, but such a knockout that I received compliments all evening. Thanks RTR, for making the evening perfect.
