The color/the shoulder embellishment MAKE this dress.
The color is rich & just as pictured. It photographs very well even in low-light. I received an endless amount of compliments. I felt like a million bucks, I looked like a million bucks. I ordered a 16L and 18L, I normally wear a 16 and the 16 looked nice but I liked having extra room in the 18 since I was eating dinner at this event. Also if you're a tall lady like myself, I'm 5'10 1/2, invest in the Long version of any dress; even with 3 inch heels the dress hit perfectly. It wasn't long enough to drag on the floor, but it was long enough that you didn't see the tops of my shoes while I was standing, only walking. The only thing I would let you ladies know is that the dress can be clingy, not like a body con dress (form-fitted), but it's similar to the way silk has a tendency of hugging everything. I would say for a smooth look definitely wear "Spanx" to hold in your "problem" area. I did and I love ALL of the photos from that night! Enjoy ladies, Carmen Mac Valvo is kind with his cuts.
