Stylist helped me when it seemed every dress was already rented.

This was my backup dress. I did not wear it. Fabric is see through, you would have been able to clearly see my bra. Too much fabric for a petite frame. The dress swallowed me up.

Dramatic, sexy, and comfortable.

Fit very loose in the top and sleeves, but was fitted and sleek through the waist, hips, and thighs. Easy to walk in, and looked SO cool. Lots of compliments all night!
