Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect evening wedding guest dress! I got sooo many compliments wearing this dress! It's quite short, so I would be tempted to go up a size .. but if I was still in my early 20s I would have felt much more comfortable ;) It was perfect for a sit down meal as a wedding guest. I wouldn't call it a dance floor dress though .. Better for perching and posing :D

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty dress I hired this as a backup dress and even though I didn’t wear it, when I tried it on, it fit nicely and would have been perfect for a black tie event. The fabric did take me a bit by suprise (it’s more furry than I imagined) but still a lovely outfit!
