Now that I got it, I think it's just TOO short! Argh! I like the style still, but being so conservative looking on top and so short on the bottom just makes it hard to wear. When I raise my arms while wearing it, the dress actually rises up to like the middle of my butt lol. Unacceptable! I was hoping I could wear it to work but that's definitely out. Size 2 probably would be looser but not much longer so I don't think that's a sizing issue either. How sad! It was such a good price on Hautelook too - from $248 to $129. Oh well. Money saved I guess.
The collar is actually a bit tight and uncomfortable - I'm not used to having something around my throat. Now I totally feel guys who have to wear ties all day lol.
The chain connected by bows is cute though:
The cuff detail is cute too:
Well, the Currie dress I've been eyeing is very similar but in black, and the collar and sleeves have lace details. I actually like it better so maybe I'll give it a shot later if it goes on sale. I have a feeling it's going to be the same cut and length though.
The Eelah Embellished Dress is also similar. It comes in navy and red too.
I love these dresses! But seriously, why so short!! I thought they would be ok length on me since I'm way shorter than the models. Sigh.
