Beautifully unique! I'm in love.
This one of two backup dresses sent to me in place of a damaged original order. I had a truly difficult time choosing, because I fell so in love with this maxi. The matte silk is substantial and exquisite. The colors are nothing short of fabulous. It's exceedingly comfortable without being dumpy or blah. If the wedding I was attending was on a beach? Jackpot! I was sent the 8R, and believe the 6R would've fit me a little better. The top of the bodice did sag just a little, but mostly just looked relaxed, and not ill-fitting. If I'd worn it, I would've belted it as shown. But if you want to wear something with remarkable style that doesn't squeeze your mid-section, this is for you. The length of the 8R would've worked fine with any not-totally-flat shoe; I think if I'd wanted to pair a heel over 2.5" with it, it may have started skirting too-short territory. I can't emphasize how much I loved, loved LOVE this dress. RTR, put it on sale! I've got dibs. ;)
