Nice, flattering fit and style. Very elegant in a fun, party way.

This was an accidental rental. Well, sort of. I didn't see the email about my previous return being received so I didn't realize I needed to pick a new item for my next shipment. This dress was in my queue so I did want to rent it at some point.
My original plan for the bachelorette weekend was to rent the Trina Turk Portrait of Elegance dress for our "nice dinner out" portion of the bachelorette weekend. However, since I missed my chance to CHOOSE my next rental, RTR took it upon themselves to choose something for me. This is the dress that arrived.
I was disappointed at first because I really wanted the fun, purple sexiness of the other dress. But after trying this dress on, I changed my mind. This dress was perfect. It is a nice, thick material and though it is very form fitting, the thickness of the material helps disguise less awesome body parts. The length is good (about mid-thigh) and doesn't ride up while walking which was perfect since I was going to be wearing this in NYC and walking a lot.
The dress is really hard to zip up. Not because it is too tight but because the zipper goes all the way down the back and the zipper is a bit stiff. At home I had to put it on backwards, zip it most of the way and then shift it around, put my arms through the holes and finish zipping. I'm pretty flexible and zippers usually aren't a problem but this one was a true struggle. Luckily my friends were able to help me during the actual party weekend.
