I wore this dress to a black tie wedding in Newport, RI.
I'm 5'6, 118 lbs, but I measure 56'' from the top of my shoulder to the floor. I ended up ordering a size 2 petite because I was nervous the dress would be too long. The petite fit perfectly, even with a one inch heel. Trust your measurements when ordering. The dress was incredible and a total show-stopper. It is definitely most appropriate for a very fancy event as it almost feels as if you're heading to the oscars or the grammy's wearing it! I had dozens of compliments throughout the night, almost to the point where I was concerned it took some of the attention off of the bride, so I'm not sure if I'd wear it to a wedding again. The color is a deep red and the dress is beautifully made. The fabric is amazing and the style is timeless. Highly recommend.
