Get ready for the gushing...
I didn't get a full-length picture! UGH! And I regret it deeply because this dress is DIVINE! I am not one to like to be the center of attention, but this dress is a head-turner. It garnered compliments all. night. long. It's easy to wear - no special bra required - and fun. The sequins did catch on my hair all night. After a few drinks, I didn't notice it much. So consider low updo - nothing too fussy though b/c the dress is enough. I wore vintage-looking chandelier earrings and nude D'Orday heels to round it out. No other jewelry b/c the dress is enough.
Now about the sizing... it's supposed to be a little blousy, so when people say that it "runs large", it doesn't really. It's totally true to size. In fact, I wish I'd done a size up in my backup rather than down to see if it would have fit better. On me because I'm a busty girl, the 8 fit everywhere but my chest was a little snug. So I totally would have gone up for that and to make it look the way it should. Other than that, it was perfect!
