Has a glam and classy factor to it that was perfect for my formal work event!
This dress was great for what I needed it for -- a classy, late night formal work event. The gold was perfect and made me stand out in a really big way -- I got compliments left and right all night on how great I looked. The gold really, really popped.
However, I don't think I'd ever wear it by just itself. I think my accessories and style choices were what put it over the top, because while it looked great, it didn't have the WOW factor until I put it all together. Also, The dress ran SUPER small. I normally wear a 14-16 in dresses. They were out of 18s, so I settled for renting the second size of a 20. Thank goodness I did.
It fit OKAY, but was too big in a few places, predominantly the bust and shoulder area as a result, which was a non-issue because I was wearing my blazer regardless.
Overall, an okay dress, but I don't think I'd rent again. Compared to a Monique I rented a few months ago, it felt a little cheaper, but still worked great for my event.
