Non-stop compliments all night. This dress was definitely stood out from the crowd!
I absolutely LOVED this dress and would have kept it if I could. I wore this dress for a black tie Mardi Gras event, and it was the perfect blend of festive and and formal. I typically wear a size 2, but the recommendations for this dress said to size down, and it was correct. I ordered both, and with 5 inch heels the size 2 was still too long but the 0 was just perfect. 2 reasons I knocked a star off- the material is silk and wrinkles pretty easily, so travelling in the car was difficult. The second, was the lining is pretty thin- so depending on where the pattern of the dress falls, determines on what undergarments are appropriate. I had hoped to get away with just wearing pasties, but on the size 0 I received, the white part of the fabric fell across my chest and you could see the pasties through the material. I ended up having to go buy a Nubra at the last minute... Not a big deal, just a minor inconvenience I wasn't counting on. If the size 2 had fit, the pasties would have worked, because the pattern fell a little differently. One other fun thing that you don't see in the picture, is that there is a long slit up the front of the dress that opens up when you walk- a very sexy and fun surprise. I definitely recommend this dress!
