Absolutely Perfect, Classy Dress
The title says it all. I wore this to a celebration dinner date at a very upscale restaurant in DC and it could not have been more perfect. For those of you who have any doubts, it's formal without being floor-length, but you can truly accessorize it to match whatever your occasion might be. Seriously a perfect and versatile, but very classy, dress.
Fit: Definitely true-to-size. Probably a bit better suited for those smaller on top though, just given how it felt on me. It's very structured and unforgiving fabric, as others have mentioned, but it's gorgeous.
Accessories: I wore a pair of Chinese Laundry "Lucky Charm" shoes which wrapped in a bit of gray and silvery white which were perfect, since I'm not a huge fan of nude shoes with a silver dress. I rented a pair of gorgeous earrings too (Gerard Yosca Nouveau Drops in grey), and paired the dress with a blue-silver pashmina. It's a silver dress with silver detailing, and is on the "cool" side of the spectrum.
Overall, this dress is an eye-catching and unique one, and it couldn't have been more perfect for the occasion. The boyfriend loved it, and I wouldn't hesitate to use RTR again for special occasions.
