Everyone else was in either boring and conservative shades of black or trying too hard to be sexy in short strapless gold sequins. I looked both elegant and flashy. My dress and neckline glowed in the lights and every time I looked around while talking to someone I saw a few pairs of eyes on me. This dress demands attention! And it's the right kind of attention!!!
I rented this as my back up dress for my 10 year high school reunion and ended up wearing it because it fit better. Usually I can't wear coral because it washes me out, but this shade has more red than orange so it looked fantastic on me. It has little hooks inside the neckline to secure your bra straps which also keeps the neckline and sleeves in place so you don't have to constantly readjust it when you move or bend over. I was able to wear a regular bra with it. Without the hooks it WILL move around and possibly show more than you intend. It was definely a unique dress and the color really popped. No one else wore anything near as lively and bright. I really did feel like a movie star! The fabric is of such a nice quality. I paired it with a sparkling pair of silver/pewter heels to compliment the neckline, and I would have matched my bag to that as well but I only packed a black and a champagne clutch, and the black took away from the dress too much. I also wore the Anton Heunis emerald drop earrings that I picked out to wear with my original green/blue dress, but the green also complimented this color so well and they didn't compete with the neckline too much since I wore my hair down. They wouldn't be my first choice to pair with the dress though. I'm so glad I trusted RTR to ensuring I looked fabulous. And they make it so easy to rent and return. I couldn't be more pleased!
