My favorite dress from RTR so far!
I love, love, loved this dress. It was spectacular--beautiful fabric, very luxe but not too heavy or hot for a summer wedding. The particular dress I received wasn't in prime condition--I could tell it had been "in the rotation" at RTR for a bit, but it was still completely beautiful. The fit was perfection for me--I am definitely a pear shape (6 or 8 on top, and a solid 10 on the bottom), and it was small enough on top and roomy enough on the bottom, despite the fact that there was no stretch. I wore some Spanx but mostly just for the smoothness, not because the dress was tight. The length is so elegant--the dress hit me right at the knees, with a little slit that lets you sit and climb into cars comfortably. I wrapped the belt twice, tying it just in a knot on the side (I thought tying it in a bow was just a little too sweet for such a sophisticated dress). I accessorized with gold shoes, bag, and jewelry, but I think it would look so beautiful with gunmetal grey accessories, too.
