Great color, great cut, didn't love the material
Overall, I was a fan of this dress. The color is amazing. It's a very vibrant deep coral orange color. I have dark hair and fair skin and this color was just great on me.. The cut of the dress is very unique with the origami style sleeves. I also liked the length on this, as it was long enough to look professional at my conference by short enough to be fresh. Do be aware that the neckline is quite low cut. I'm a B/C cup and this was fine on me but if I had a larger chest, this probably would have been too low cut for a professional setting.
I did knock my rating down a start for the fabric. The fabric is VERY thin, almost like a stretchy linen. It really would have benefited from a heavier lining. Also, the stitching on the seams down the front is quite large and obvious. I actually thought at first that someone had added stitching to fix some damage, but then I noticed the same stitching on my backup dress. The heavy stitching and thin fabric made the dress feel a bit cheap to me, although it looked great.
