Perfect for a Day at the Races!
This was my first experience with RTR & I have to say, I'm super glad that I joined! This dress was as cute in real life as it was on the model (no offense to models, but we all know a brown burlap sack would look smashing on them, but like something that got smashed on an "actual human"). I'm 5'5" & 100lbs & normally wear a 0, so I ordered a 0 & it fit great, just a little snug in the torso. So, knowing I'd be eating & drinking all day, I ended up wearing the back up 2, and it was perfect (just slightly less snug, but still form fitting).
I wore it for Steeplechase races, for a corporate event (so I had to be on my best behavior & dress the part, lest my friend disown me). I paired it with a big black & white hat & a few pops of color (a pink necklace & pink shoes as accent). After a while the wedges weren't cutting it on the grass, so I switched to black Chucks with pink accents (more my tomboyish funky style anyway) & got SO many compliments on the whole ensemble. All in all, I was sad to send the dress back. Perfect fit, with a little bit of age appropriate girlie flair but not overly so, and POCKETS!!
