My backup dress (the Carlos Miele) wasn't available in the size I had initially requested, so the stylist allowed me to either pick a dress of any price to rent instead (free of cost) or he would pick one himself! Also- the mystery jewelry ended up being a great pair of earrings that really complimented the dress (Kate Spade NY: Putting on the Ritz chandelier earrings)!
This dress was a great pick for my senior prom! The color is amazing and it's very different from the dresses many other girls were wearing. It does run true to size, but the bottom half of the dress (the section that's not rouched) is fairly tight. I would have worn a 2L if the bottom wasn't so form fitting. The upper half is very loose, so while wearing a 4 I was constantly adjusting it. The sides are open so beware of side-cleavage! Can't wear a regular bra, so I stuck (no pun intended) with a stick-on bra. Loved the dress, just wish I had known my tummy was going to be on display so I was able to prepare better!
