Fitted, fun, floral!
I ordered a 0 and a 2, since my usual size is 2 but with dresses I often can wear a 0 (especially if strapless since I'm narrower/smaller on top), but I was really concerned that I wouldn't be able to fit into the 2 after reading some of the reviews. It turned out that although both fit, the 0 looked better since it was more fitted to my body and less bunchy around the waist. This dress is very pretty and ladylike, modest in length (it hit below my knees) but not too conservative due to the fit and fun floral print. The background color is a dark midnight blue, and the flowers are sort of a tomato red, white, and light blue, with touches of green leaves. The fabric is cotton with a brushed finish, which keeps it from being very fancy or fussy. I wore the dress with nude patent peeptoe platforms, a metallic champagne clutch, a clear crystal and gold tone J. Crew bracelet, and simple round sapphire/gold earrings. (Spanx aren't necessary but my husband said they improved the look, haha. Just hike them up a bit because the slit in the back is a little high.)
