Pretty but fit kind of odd
I wore this to a holiday cocktail party. The black shift was comfortable but short, the lace and sequin overlay was the part that was kind of odd. It was a good couple inches longer than the shift and since they were two separate pieces, I was always worried that one might be tucked or ruched up somewhere when the other wasn't. The sequins got caught on everything, including themselves, so putting it on and taking it off could be a bit hazardous. It feels like the dress has been worn a lot - the difference in lengths, there was a tiny zipper hook stuck in the arm where it had probably been torn out after being caught previously, the hangar straps were frayed and twisted. It was a pretty dress, but not one I would want to rent again.
