Cool, edgy up top; flirty, feminine on bottom
My original choice, which was the same dress but with the mustard skirt, was unable to make it to me due to the severe storm on the East Coast. They were able to send me a very comparable dress which I was fine with, although a little disappointed because the skirt looked black in the picture and I wanted a more vibrant look. But who was I to be ungracious when, I'm sure, the people involved with getting me a replacement were probably much more disadvantaged. When the dress arrived, I was so happy that the skirt was actually blue! The colors of the wedding I was going to were blue and mustard so it would work out really well. I was also pleased that the delicate beading of the bodice and pleats in the skirt were all perfect even though it was apparent that it wasn't a brand new dress (slight wear on edges of silk chiffon).
I ordered both the size 4 and 6 and ended up going with the 6. The 4 was very snug in the waist and bodice and the 6 gave me a bit more breathing room.
I wore it with a blue feathered headband, rhinestone hoop earrings, black tights (because the outdoor wedding venue was freezing at night), and Anaconda cut-out booties.
