Definitely a standout!
I wore this dress for a wedding at a mid-mountain ski lodge, where the temperature was obviously a factor. It turned out to be a really great choice, the neoprene kept me relatively warm. It was also a very forgiving fabric, given that I was also trying to hide the fact that I was 8 weeks pregnant and starting to get a bit of baby bloat. I definitely got a lot of compliments on it, it's totally a standout dress!
The only downside I would say for girls of my height is that the length is definitely not petite. The hem fell just a few inches above my knees and made my legs look like they disappeared when I put opaque black tights underneath. I ended up skipping the tights and going bare-legged, which was not ideal for the temperatures, but looked much better.
