I wore this to work; it was a bit on the short side, but was super cute and still professional.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Most of the reviews said this runs big, but I don't really agree. I had grabbed it as a second dress for $25 on my order, so I didn't get to ask for two sizes. DISCLAIMER, THIS MIGHT SOUND BITCHY, BUT I'M JUST TRYING TO HELP: I almost ordered a 6 based on so many reviews saying it ran big, but was glad I didn't. It isn't body hugging, but especially at my height, I think it was important for it to fit with some room to move given the length, and I think that is the way it is meant to look. If it is tugging even in the slightest on your hips (as it is in some of the photos of people saying it "runs big"), it just wouldn't look classy -- not that kind of dress. I suppose I could have squeezed into the 6, but then it would have looked slutty not cute.
I'm glad mine came with the waist tie. Apparently sometimes it doesn't (people probably lose them). I think it was important to cinch the waist.
I wore it with a big blue necklace and really like the contrast.
Actually got tons of compliments on the color, which I originally was skeptical of.
Sorry not to have a picture. Since I only wore it to work, I forgot to think to snap one.
