Gorgeous dress, heavy material
This dress was gorgeous and incredibly flattering. You can't tell from the picture, but the blue and white print is actually a different piece of cloth that really pops out of the black background when you see it in person. The darts also pop out of the fabric, giving the entire dress a more 3-dimensional look than the picture suggests. The print is also a very silky material that adds a lot of depth to the dress. Overall, the look was more formal than I was expecting, so instead of wearing it to work I wore it to a formal event.
The dress came to just above my knees. Unfortunately, the neckline was a bit loose on me, even though I have fairly broad shoulders for someone of my size, and I was wearing a push-up bra. The material was also much thicker than I expected, and I would not recommend this for an outdoor or a summer event, but it's the perfect thickness for a winter event. The thickness was good for hiding any unevenness.
