Nice dress, needed accessories
I really really liked this dress. The peplum wasn't as peplum-y as it is on the model, but it showed just fine. The one thing I will say is that the dress needed accessories. It was pretty so-so without any, but once I added the necklace and belt, I think it really came together. I even went a little flashier with the necklace than I normally do (Slate & Willow Dripping Arbor necklace) because I felt like the dress could handle it and I was right- neither the dress nor the necklace overpowered the other and I felt like they balanced each other well. The dress can be pretty busty if you're well-endowed. I'm a 34E and if I twisted the right way or bent over at all, the girls were definitely saying hi, but it wasn't anything distasteful as long as I was careful. The skirt fit perfectly snug which was nice to perk the booty a little and there was plenty of room up top, even if you're busty. The peplum was perfect if you like to hide your stomach like me. Material was slightly heavier, which was good to bring everything in and was perfect for an early fall wedding. Overall, I was really pleased with the dress and got lots of compliments, both at the wedding and from pictures.
