Beautiful - but didn't have my size!
Only picture I took that night, unfortunately! Uploaded to show that the dress completely looks black (as long as you aren't outside) and the peep hole isn't too bad :)
It was a very beautiful dress. Very Mad Men-esque. I didn't find it too short (I'm 5'6" and wore it with 3 inch heels). I rented the 8 and the 12 because they were out of 10. The 8 fit and was a bit snug, though it made the middle gap section expand, making it look weird. I decided to size up to the 12, which I ended up wearing. I thought it look absolutely amazing, though since it was a big size, it expanded A LOT at the hips making me feel like a giant bubble walking around.
I would rent again--but would probably go with a 10 if they had it. I paired it with nude pumps, dark eyeliner and red lips. The only suggestion I would have in renting this dress, is to make sure you get your exact size. Something too tight may stretch the bottom part more than it's supposed to, and something too big would make you look way hippier than you'd want to.
