"For the perfect holiday dress, you want something special, glitzy, memorable, and that you feel fabulous in. Enter the Amaryllis.
It looks to be dusky purple with raspberry sequins in photos, but like it says in the description, it’s a mocha brown dress with a black mesh overlay. The sequins are more cranberry than pink. It also comes with a cranberry satin sash.
The neckline was not so low that it showed my bra. I didn’t need a cami, but raspberry, red, and black paired nicely, and I noticed that the cami and accessories you pair with the dress can make it look more purple, black, or brown and the sequins more red or pink.
I have a tummy, so the weight of the sequins made the dress hang close to my body and cling. The waist was also very high and accentuated my midsection. The sash helped cut more of a figure, accentuating the waist. I also love the elbow length sleeves because it means a dress I can wear as-is, no cardigan or wrap necessary.
I wore it to a formal dinner and again to a Christmas party, and I’ll definitely wear it for future special occasions. Now that I’ve worn it twice, I definitely notice how great I feel in it more than its less than perfect fit.
"the rich but fine sequin embroidery is exquisite and beautiful, and together with the neckline design is my favoirite feature of the dress. I find it is perfect for those who like to flatter their bust but not to show their tummy too much. I felt like a princess wearing this dress to an evening party and everyone complimented me about the fine embroidery and beauty of the dress. Will wear this for New Year's Eve as well and match it with a golden baroque motif clutch and styling my heair like an Indian princess!"
