I had my first RTR experience for my work's holiday party. I was overall pretty happy with this dress, although it wasn't perfect for me. It came in great condition and I got 2 sizes the 40 & 42. Because I have a large chest (34DD), i had to wear the 42; the 40 just wouldn't zip up my chest because it was a side zipper. Since i had to wear the larger dress, it wasn't as tight or form fitting as I would have wanted in the torso, legs area. It was also about knee length on me because I'm pretty short, but for a work party, I didn't mind it being a little long. The dress came with fashion tape, which i thought was a nice touch but you can't use it on the hem of this dress, the material is just too heavy and chain on bottom is too chunky for tape. The color blue is a little lighter than I expected from the photo on RTR. I was hoping for more of a royal blue and it's just a few shades lighter, but still very pretty. The chain detail on the shoulders and zipper detail on the body is awesome. lots of compliments. Wore it with Assets Black tights (by Spanx) and black sparkly shoes. Also wore it with Dannijo Finley earrings from RTR, which I loved!
