Eye-catching, compliment-inducing dresss!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was the backup dress I rented for a wine country wedding. I ended up wearing it out to a nice dinner and shopping at the Grove in LA the night before, and the compliments came from nearly every single person with whom I spoke. I was pleasantly surprised by how well-maintained the lace portion of the dress was -- as many RTR ladies know, popular dresses such as this one tend to show their age due to myriad of wears and cleanings they undergo. With a size 0 (and I usually wear a 0), this dress fit comfortably and a little loosely. It was heavier than I had expected, but the skirt draped beautifully without adding much bulk. The amount of fabric and heaviness was the only reason I chose the other dress over this one (Shoshanna Lace Cecile Dress -- RTR misspelled the name of this dress, FYI, by spelling it "Ceclie")
This dress seems incredibly versatile; it's comfy, cute, and flirty and elegant at the same time. I would recommend this dress for a romantic picnic, dinner, theater, cocktail party, or a daytime wedding.
