Classic, timeless, and elegant.
I wore this dress to a fundraising event I planned. I needed something that was professional but still memorable, yet comfortable to be running around in. I also needed some modesty - I didn't want a super sexy dress since this was a fundraiser for a school my children attend, and we had a lot of community leaders attending. This dress fit the bill perfectly. It was very comfortable, the cut was modest (i.e. my back was covered and the cleavage was right on target,) and the length was just right. I felt very elegant and classic, but super ahead of the game because no one else had a sequined dress on (I wore this in 2010, before major retailers had caught on that sequins were back.) I was actually pulled on stage to help with the live auction portion of the evening, which required a bit of "Vanna Whiting," so it was perfect and shimmery. I had a great time in this dress!
Oh, and I felt it fit a little large. I was probably in the 130 lb range at the time and wore a size 4.
