Lace Ruffle Dress
I got this dress in turquoise... overall I'm happy and dresses are hard for me... I'm short and very round in the middle... this dress is very flattering which i almost never say. The belt seems cheap, but but I never really had the intention of wearing it... looks fine without it. The style is very cute...
A few things to be aware of though... 1) the turquoise color is VERY bright... like a fluorescent turquoise, not as muted as the photo shows. 2) the little lace ruffles at the top are not finished, just simply cut with scissors and quite sloppily at that... I may take it to be altered/hemmed a bit, still considering it because it really does cheapen the dress, I guess it just depends on your style taste... a little ratty might work for some - I'm wearing it to a wedding so I'd like it to be more finished, I think. 3) The top elastic is VERY loose and stretchy... I'll probably pin it back to be sure it stays up since I will most likely wear a little cardigan anyway.
It sounds like I have complaints, but really this is just minor stuff for an otherwise cute dress... I actually plan on getting the black also I like it so much.
