The material of this dress is a very very soft stretchy jersey type. Most rayon, with some spandex. It's got a loose fit on top, a drop waist and tight fitting on the bottom. The black belt comes with it, but it's also detachable which is nice since that means I can use other belts with it, or use this belt with other things. It's made in the USA which is always a plus for me. And it was only $18! Down from $50. Totally worth the price. I actually don't have a red dress, but I love that song Lady in Red by Chris de Burgh! Gotta play that on my ipod when I wear this. =)
These are the model shots:
I also got this Belted Epauletted shirt dress, which looked cute on the model, but way too short and see-through for me to keep. I'd only wear it as a tunic with jeans or leggings or something but I am not really into that style. So this one is going back. It's too bad, because I like it as a dress.
This is how it looks on the model. Very misleading, since I always assume models are way taller on me.
Oh well, returning this will save me 24 bucks to spend on other things. =)
