Beautiful color, but super SHORT skirt!!
I wore this dress to a party and bar-hop event and loved the color which stood out from all the little black dresses. I accessorized it with a gold belt as the waist area definitely needs something to hide the puckered elastic. I'm typically a size 10 and got the Sz L and it fit perfectly. I only had about a 1/2" of overall extra room in the hip area, so if your hips measure more than 38-39" this dress may not work due to the silk fabric not having any give. Dress is quite short, at 5'3 it fell just below mid-thigh for me, about 5" above the knee. I was a bit self-conscious about that all night- making sure I didn't bend over too much while dancing and when I was sitting down the dress rode up quite a bit too. It loses a star for the length, though for younger women that may not be an issue.
