Unique dress, brilliant colors
I wore this to a graduation ceremony at the University of Illinois so the colors were perfect! I got a lot of compliments on my orange & blue.
Pros: this dress is so unique and the floral design & color are absolutely gorgeous in person (pictures due this dress no justice in how vibrant it is in person). A dress like this is really memorable, so in a way it's a great dress to rent - if you owned it, you probably would only wear it a handful of times because it does stand out so much that you couldn't really get away with wearing it to multiple events without people noticing. I was worried about the length of the dress, as I am about 5'8''/almost 5'9'' on a good day, but it ended up being a comfortable length for me. I added a second photo to emphasize the length on me for taller girls, because it still is quite short, but for me it felt appropriate (but for someone else it might be uncomfortable).
Cons: the fabric is a little thicker (but breathable) and holds some smells in... I have a feeling someone that rented this before might have smoked some cigarettes in it or something, because the dress kind of seemed to hold that smell.
