Easy, breezy, & a bit boho with a real wow factor.
I wouldn't have picked this dress based on the pics from the site, it just didn't seem like the right colors, but I went to the RTR location at Henri Bendel (lucky that it's close, since I live in New York), and the stylist pulled it for me, and I'm so glad she did. The colors are actually more reds/pinks in person and the patten gives it a very free-spirited, boho vibe. The flow makes it more of a casual (in terms of wedding attire) choice, which is perfect for an out door wedding. I actually wore it with some swedish hasbeen platforms, so I wasn't sinking into the grass the whole time (a bonus!). Cons are that this dress might be tough for the bustier ladies, since the peekaboo neckline in front means you can't wear a bra. It was also really comfortable, though I did have to make sure I was standing up nice and straight (not a bad thing) so that I didn't flash some side boob! The cut out gives the dress a sexiness, but it's also subtle so that keeps it classy. I got the 2 in regular length, and with the platform shoes, it was still brushing the floor, so that's something to keep in mind if you are on the shorter side. Overall, I felt like a million bucks in this dress, and would highly highly recommend it!!
