Very pretty and classy dress that helped me stand out from the typical black at a work party!
The dress is elegant and has subtle glitter that is fun but not gaudy. The belt on the dress is very beautiful. The lining on the dress does peak out from the bottom ,but it is obvious this was the look the designer was trying to achieve. I don't think it made the dress look worse. Overall, I thought the dress was beautiful and I am very happy I wore it.
Fit: I usually wear between a 6-8, and wore the 8. I think the 8 was most certainly a smaller 8. I have broad shoulders, so the dress was a little tight on them. I would definitely recommend sizing up.
It's a good length too! Fun, but not too short for a work function, and I'm 5'7.
Fabric: The dress is overall beautiful, and catches light wonderfully. The ribbon on the belt on the 8 had been creased in half, which was a little odd. However, when tied, it was not really a huge factor. The sparkles are slightly itchy on the underarms, but I think this is bc it was a little snug on my shoulders.
