Great dress but dress has seen better days!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
As soon as I tried this dress on, I was in love! It felt like it was made for me, which is hard to find since I'm 5'1. The color was fabulous and the material felt comfortable like jersey, but appeared more dressy. I have a large chest, so feared the top would be too tight, but given the stretchy material, it looked great.
I wore to my birthday party. I didn't want to be overly dressed up because most of my friends tend to dress fairly casual. I wore it with a pair of Alexis Bittar dangle earrings, pair of nude wedges, and at the last minute grabbed my jean jacket in case I got cold and/or felt overdressed. I didn't feel too dressy at all, yet this dress could easily be more formal, depending on how it's worn. I got tons of compliments, and have become obsessed with the brand since renting.
The only reason I gave this dress a 4 is because both the 0 & the 2 had several snags, especially on the back. I was able to conceal them, but it was a bit disheartening when the dress was so perfect in every other way. I loved it so much, I'm considering purchasing because Barney's currently has it on sale for $300.
