Cute dress, but not exactly what I was expecting
I changed at the very last minute back into this dress, and I was late for the ceremony, forgetting to change back into my nude shoes. I was in Florida for a destination wedding, and I had limited options with me. I ordered it, because I wanted to wear a pretty, brightly colored dress. This dress is a very pretty color, and it photographed well. But, the fabric is heavy and has a shiny, patterned texture, which did not make it feel summer-y and light. I felt awkward being in a beach setting wearing this.
As Michael Kors would say, "wear is she going?" I don't know what season you'd wear this dress or wear you'd be going. Maybe an early fall wedding or event? I don't know.
It was also very big in the top. And it was really stretched out in the waist. I ended up wearing the 6, because the 4 made my waistline look strange, due to the stretchy fabric on the sides of the top of the dress. The stretchy sides of the dress also made this feel cheaply made.
I have had great luck with rent the runway on past purchases, but this was my first disappointing choice. I wouldn't recommend this one! Sorry RTR!
