This gown was perfectly suited to the Indo-Western theme of our commitment ceremony!
Size worn: 16WL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I needed a flowing gown that had a simple silhouette because I was creating a sari-inspired look. The Go-To Girls at RTR helped me narrow down my choices to this halter cut, flowing, emerald green gown. The first one I chose in a 12L was way too small. I forgot that formal wear does not always fit the same way as normal wear! In everyday clothes, I wear 12 and 14.
It was also Thanksgiving, so that really stressed me out. However, it all got resolved on Black Friday: RTR shipped out 2 dresses- this one in a 16L AND a gorgeous strapless version in an 18L. They promised a delivery no later than noon on Saturday (the day of our 2:30 PM event). As promised, it arrived at 11 AM. Both gowns fit perfectly, and I stuck with my original choice, mainly because it looked better with the vintage dupatta (ornate scarf from India) I had to drape over it. Unfortunately, it hides most of the gown, but some of it does peek out. The length of the gown was perfect, and I am 5'-10" and wore ballet flats. (So, If you are tall, please order the gown in Long.)
I have holiday parties coming up, and can't wait to use RTR again!!! xoxo
