great colors, comfortable, and easy to wear.
This was an alternate dress hastily selected at the last minuet after receiving an email one day before my shipment that my first choice alternate was no longer available. Sadly my first choice didn't fit and I had no choice but to wear this one. I don't hate the dress, it just wasn't quite the same as the one I really wanted to wear. I have a long torso and I felt the waist on this dress was not flattering on me. It was not empire waist-ed or sitting on my true waist , so I felt like it made me look heavy, but really that is my only complaint. As many others mentioned it was nice to be able to wear a normal bra with this dress and it still felt elegant with the open back. Pockets on a dress are always a plus! Perfect for your phone and a lipstick. The color was truly beautiful and bright, a real stand out in a crowd. It was appropriate for the wedding we attended as it was on the more casual side. If it is a fancier event I'd probably select a different dress, unless you really want to dress it up with fancy jewelry and shoes. As for jewelry I also rented a coral/orange pair of Kendra Scott earrings. I already knew I would love them because I own them in blue and black. The orange was the perfect color to match the little patch or orange on the dress. Shoes- I wore a very small wedge and it was just enough to keep the back of the regular length dress from dragging on the ground.
