Feminine, interesting, and comfortable
I wore this to an outdoor, lake-side, late afternoon wedding and was very pleased with how comfortable and different it was. It doesn't quite come across online but the textured overlay (wrong word, my bad) is really intriguing and flattering. The silhouette reminds me of a ballerina and cinches slightly at the waist before pouffing in a flirty but sophisticated way. It's a very well made dress and fits a touch large (though not in a revealing or bothersome way).
Two things to keep in mind:
I adored how this dress looks in person and in the mirror. However, after looking back at a few photos from the wedding, I feel as though I look like a bit of whale (like, not the whole whale but ... whale-ish, still). So, whether it's the way the fabric falls or the pattern or the color or some combination thereof... keep this in mind when renting if you (like me) aren't a pro at posture and posing during events
Also, the delicate detailing seems like it might easily catch on a studded or otherwise more-3D-than-usual bracelet so be careful of sharp edges!
All in all, a very lovely dress that fit well, felt great (approved for dance floor), and received many compliments !
