Cute, Comfortable Dress
I rented this for a casual NYE party, but ended up wearing it to work. Just...a regular day of work. I paired it with navy tights and dark brown riding boots. Obviously I wouldn't normally rent a dress for work, but I figured I have it and might as well wear it!
So it's casual enough that with tights and boots, you can definitely wear it as a day dress. I think it could fly as an evening or special event dress with some bold jewelry, heels and no tights (it's somewhat short, although not awkwardly - although I'm only 5'2").
It's very comfortable - I didn't even try the 0 on, as the 2 fit with enough room to move, eat, breathe, etc. The sleeves are cut in the back, so even if you have bigger arms (like me) you don't have to worry about them not fitting. As you can see, they are sort of an unusual sleeve length. On the model the sleeves look loose but they fit my arms snugly (but comfortably).
The material is soft with a slight stretch, almost like a cotton feel. Not shiny or heavy weight.
If I owned this dress, it'd be the type I'd wear to work on a regular basis, and to things like baby showers, family events, etc. So while it's not a showstopper, it's a very nice dress!
