I wore this dress to my brother's graduation from med school (followed up by his engagement party).
The color is amazing—it's definitely more neon yellow (and gets even brighter in the sun)! Definitely eye catching... I paired it with a sharp blue statement necklace, earrings, and 5-inch heels. I was originally worried that the size 2 would be too tight, but it fit perfectly and hugged my curves. Over the day, however, it does feel that it gets stretched out a little so it starts to hang loose, which isn't terrible. The only thing that I would say I didn't expect from (and wasn't thrilled about) is that the dress is really SHORT. I am totally OK with short dresses, but not for a graduation/engagement party. From the images and reviews, I didn't expect it to be THIS short (it didn't even reach mid-thigh)! I thought it looked short on the model in the image because of her height, but no—it really is THAT SHORT. I was constantly tugging at for length whenever I sat down or stood up. The first things everyone noticed when I walked out was how short it was. I tried the size up, but it looked like it hit the same point on my thigh (the only difference was the size up was looser). However, it was still a beautiful dress and I got a ton of compliments on it (and even converted a number of girls to Rent the Runway)! THANKS RTR! :)
