Comfortable cocktail attire!
I wore this dress for a Fall cocktail party for my husband's work. It was different from all the little black dresses, comfortable, and yet sexy without being too revealing. I felt like it hit a nice balance between being high end with the silk, but casual with the maxi like shape. It was easy to move, eat and drink, and I received many compliments. I would love to own this dress!
Fit and color notes:
Overall, the dress runs a little small. I usually wear a 2 or a 4. I thought the 4 fit me in the waist with being just a tad snug. However, the more fitted construction helped the top stay up without a bra. I worried it would lack support for my natural 34D chest BUT it was great (and my cleavage looked amazing!). Also, at 5'7" with 3 inch heels the dress Still skimmed the ground a bit. Wearing higher heels, or bring slightly taller may be helpful.
The color is much more orange and grey than pictured. It still worked for me, but was a little shocking when I opened the box.
