"I was asked to do a reading in a close friend's "beach formal" outdoor wedding. This dress couldn't have been more perfect! The beautiful flower pattern suited the outdoor theme perfectly.
The hemline shows off the best part of my legs and my strappy shoes, while maintaining an elegance that would be appropriate for many occasions. I love the adjustable halter neckline, which is so flattering, and the "H" shaped straps underneath which gave a lot of support and allowed me to get away with wearing a strapless bra. My only complaint was that the straps were to wide across my back, requiring some last minute fussing to avoid it looking sloppy. The dress if fully lined which is great, however I had to be careful as the sheer flower printed fabric could easily catch on things and doesn't have any forgiving stretch.
Overall this is one of my favorite summer dresses ever - much more elegant than a typical sun dress, but the light fabric and design keep it suitable for hot summer days and outdoor events. I know I'll get a lot of use out of this one!"
"I just bought this dress online, and I love it! I found 2 different looks - with simple gold heels and earrings for a professional, sophisticated look, and belted with gold toned flat gladiator sandals to break it up for a younger, more casual, and edgier look.
This dress is so flattering - the below-the-knee length is perfect at my height, and the sleeves are long enough and fitted enough to cover my upper arms and not bunch up. The asymmetric design makes it unique and visually appealing, despite the conservative height of the neckline. The liner stops it from being too clingy, and lumps and bumps are hidden by the flattering rouching. The rouching on the back side also shows off my butt in a really flattering way! And I love the jewel-tone color - flattering with my dark hair and green eyes.
I wore this dress to work, and with a quick change of shoes and accessories it took me straight into my evening which involved an outdoor cocktail party with a pile of clients and other professionals. I got tons of compliments from both men and women. With a cardigan or blazer and tall boots, this dress should take me right into winter.
