People asked where my red carpet was!
I ordered this for a NYE wedding and it was the perfect look! The dress arrived on time and in okay condition. There were some missing sequins around the hem, but this is to be expected with a rental (and really who is going to notice?). I'm a true to size 2, but the 0L back up size I ordered actually fit better as this is a stretchy material. I have small shoulders so things tend to be long in the straps on me and the 0 was a better length from the shoulder to under the bust. Unfortunately, the 0L had a run of missing sequins down the front left side of the torso, which was a noticeable spot. There was also a long thread at the end of the missing row and I was afraid if I trimmed it, more would fall off. So I went with the 2, and it was completely fine. I wish they'd had a L available when I ordered since I like to wear very tall shoes, but the R was just barely above the floor with my 4" heels. If you like to wear any sort of platform heel and you're my height or taller, make sure to get a long length. I kept the styling simple with some Chanel crystal stud earrings, some Alexis Bittar bangles, a tan mink stole, and the previously mentioned black lace peep toe Jimmy Choos. All in all, I was quite satisfied!
