When the older gentleman sitting next to me told me that the first time he met his wife of 47 years, she was wearing sequins.
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this to an Annual Fundraiser Gala. The Gala was black-tie optional and I wore a floor length gown last year, so I knew if I was going to go for a short dress, it had to be special. This dress is very pretty and sparkly with all the sequins and was perfect for the event! My husband joked that sequins are from the 50s (like he knows fashion haha) but I told him I was bringing sequins back :) I wear between a 10 and a 12 and the 12 fit okay, but the 10 was definitely a better fit for me. I also had to use a bit of the fashion tape that RTR sent me to have the top fit well without showing my bra. I was able to wear a regular tradition bra with this dress which was nice. It's really hard to describe the color of this dress, it's not as silver as it looks in the picture. It has a pink/ gold tint to it, but I loved that. The hardest thing for me was finding the best shoes to match. I ended up going with a pair of ivory shoes that worked well. I would say if you can find a pair of gold with skinny straps, that they would be perfect. Overall, I really loved the dress and got a lot of compliments considering everyone else at the Gala looked fantastic!
