This particular dress seems to run small – so you may want to order a size or two larger than you think you should. Part of this is because the silky skirt fabric is kind of unforgiving and you don’t want it too tight if that’s a problem area for you. The top of the dress is absolutely gorgeous – from the almost hot pink color to what I call an “artichoke leaf” texture.
If your décolletage, shoulders and back are something you like to show off – this dress is definitely for you. I loved how much skin it showed up top so much that I didn’t wear a necklace so I could keep it open visually. Everyone complimented the design and color of this dress and I felt comfortable in it. The top part holds you in and up which gives the appearance of a good figure.
Accessories: I paired my dress with a black scarf I already owned to cover my upper arms and to take it from fun party dress to something a little more elegant. Shoes: A classic pair of black pumps or simple strappy kitten heels would work perfectly. Don’t try to wear this with footwear that is too complicated visually because it distracts from the dress. The bag: A simple black clutch. Jewelry: Again, I tried to keep it simple to make it more elegant. I used some small “diamond” earrings and a matching ring. Hair: This could work with hair down or up. I pulled mine back and slicked down the front.
One Last Tip: Make sure you have an assistant when you’re getting dressed – you’ll need someone to help zip you into it.
