It's so hard to make out details of black items when using my iphone and not very good lighting in my hallway. So these web shots should be better:
So this dress is made of crinkled shiffon silk material. It has the rhinestoned sash that ties in the back. I really like the asymmetrical neckline, and the upper body is corsetted so it sucks you in very well. Though I must say, it sure is hard to zip up! I bought this dress in a size 6, because my other Vera Wang Lavender dress is a size 4 and it is just a bit too tight in the chest. And from wedding dress shopping, I know Vera is a mean seamstress. But the size 6 is very tight fitting in this dress. It basically fits like second skin on top. The zipper does not zip up easily even when I'm not wearing it, so I had a lot of trouble putting it on! I almost gave up and returned it. But alas, it did happen in the end. I'm actually pretty happy with it even though it is a little hard to breath with the corset top.
I am keeping it though. I just can't bare to return it! And I'm sure an occasion for it will come at some point! Besides, I think my Cesare Paciotti Crystal pumps will go very well with this dress. I should have worn them in my photo, but I don't know where they are right now.
