Fun pattern, soft, comfy fabric. Could have sized down.
I ordered this dress for my father-in-law's memorial party, an event he wanted to be more celebratory than sad. He knew every artist, dancer, and writer in town, so I needed something that struck a balance between arty and conservative. This dress fit the bill for me. Paired with a cardigan, (we had an unexpected snowstorm in May!) it was sexy enough to meet all of the ex-girlfriends from high school, but demure enough to hang with the grandmas. I loved the fabric; it was form-fitting, but not constricting. I did find I had to pull it down every so often, because it would ride up and bunch a bit at the waist. I think these problems could have been eliminated if I sized down to the XS, but overall it wasn't too annoying. I wish I had been able to get a photo, but that just didn't seem appropriate at a memorial!
