Loved this eccentric dress that stood out in a sea of monochromatic dresses!
Fit: THIS DRESS RUNS LARGE. In US sizing, I ordered an 8 and a 10 (I triple checked the conversion). At the size I'm at now, I should be either a 10 or 12, but I ended up wearing the size 8 dress. Even though it was fitted as you can see from the photos, when I sat down it wrinkled up through the midsection (in a good way!) and I had plenty of room to breathe. Take this with a grain of salt, but I don't think this dress is true to size. Also, I have big hips/chest and this dress fit me great, so don't be scared curvy girls!
Pros: The material is thick and comfortable, almost the texture of a thick sweatshirt. (Probably not a good pick for an outdoor summer wedding!) This pattern is as bright and beautiful in person as in photos, and everyone LOVED this dress.
Cons: Length. This is a TRUE mini dress, so unless you are 5'3" and shorter, don't expect it to hit mid-thigh. Full disclosure: I danced like a crazy person to Usher, T Swift, etc., and had no issues. Yes, I had to keep pulling it down, but I repeatedly asked my friends/date if I flashed anyone, and they said I was good. Success!
Takeaway: Rent this dress if you want to be comfortable and standout! Also, I rented my jewelry as well and thought it went perfectly. Don't be afraid to wear some major bling even though the pattern is intense!
