One of the waiters took me aside and said that he loved the way my own "ink" seemed to flow into the ink design of the dress. This is not a dress that I would buy, since it falls outside my normal day-to-day style, but RTR gave me an opportunity to try something different. I'm glad I did, because I got tons of compliments.
This is my first order from RTR. I ordered this dress in a 0, which is my normal size, and a 2 as a back up even though I was sure I wouldn't need it. Sadly the 0 had some problems, including a snag in the fabric and a weirdly rippled hem. I had to wear the 2, which was fine since it's a sheath-style and not meant to be super tight. It still looked pretty good but was really loose in the waist.
When I contacted RTR about the problems, they were very apologetic and offered me a discount on my next order. I'm willing to try again and see how it works out.
I also ordered the "mystery bling" which was a fun surprise and turned out to be these onyx geo earrings, unfortunately not really visible in the snapshot. I completed my look with Giuseppe Zanotti black patent pumps with a snakeskin heel and a vintage clutch. Overall, I was happy, but would have preferred a size 0. My dog, Butch, clearly thought I looked great.
