Odd fit but fun color and beautiful fabric!
When I first put this dress on, I was determined to give it no more than 3 stars (Sorry about the picture quality!). The fit really threw me off - there is definitely some ruching on the right hip area that it took me a while to get used to, especially since I was not expecting it AT ALL. I don't think the pictures really describe the dress accurately in this sense. Fortunately, once you are moving around, it's not that noticeable but be aware that if you rent this dress, it does not fit symmetrically from the waist down. That being said, I wore it to a friend's bachelorette party in April and it definitely grew on me over the night! The color was fun, the material was almost a wool-blend material (not python-y at all!) and the length and fit were appropriate and yet a little sexy. I wore a few small bracelets, tights, and heels to accessorize in chilly spring weather. I would have probably preferred to wear the 4 but since that size was unavailable, I went with the 2, which still fit really well. My main complaint with this dress is the weird fit in the skirt - I made the most of it but given the option, I will rent something else next time!
