I bought this dress for a wedding I am attending in March. It's the first dress I saw that I really liked. Wasn't sure I'd like the beading but it adds some panache to a classic dress. I am 5"7 and typically wear a size 6. This dress though not body hugging hangs nicely but would not be that flattering on anyone carrying some extra weight. Nice to see that it's USA made. Plan on buying a pair of silver shoes.
