I wore this to my fiance's summer firm dinner. Conservative yet stylish.
Positives: flattering fit, pretty shade of pink, works well with a variety of shoes/accessories, transitions well from a work event to a night out
So, a couple of things on this dress. First, the model photo makes it look like the lining of the dress is red rather than the same shade of pink. When I ordered the dress I was expecting the contrast. Now I can see that it's just tricky lighting that makes the inside of the bottom of the dress look like a different color. As a result, the dress was a touch more boring than I expected. But, it definitely served its purpose for the event.
Second, it might be RTR's new method of shipping (garment bags rather than boxes) or the actual material of the dress, but it was really wrinkled when I received it (especially at the bottom). I was able to steam it and get it into better condition in time for the event, but there were still some creases I couldn't eliminate. It's a tricky steam job because there two layers of fabric. I had never had this problem with RTR before.
