Why wear black when you can wear red?!
I rented this gorgeous, vibrant ruby red dress for dinner at Per Se; while everyone else was donning black, this red stunner makes stand apart from the crowd. The particular dress I received had little pulls in the lace (probably due to someone's rings or bracelets getting caught on the lace), but it was not terribly noticeable (especially when sitting down at dinner). Other competitive athletes can probably relate (and I sound like a broken record on all of my RTR reviews), but I struggle with having dresses fit in the bust area due to a muscular and lean upper body. The XS was definitely big on top, relative to the hip/ waist area, and the structure of the dress on top made me look like the widest part of my bust was a little "pointy" because I did not fill it out, but the rest of the dress was such a flattering curve-kisser that I don't think the bust situation drew too much negative attention. Even after a 9 course tasting dinner, this dress fit comfortably - a definite plus.
