Describe Yourself: Trendy/Stylish Dresser
Comfort vs Style: Style Driven

I ordered this dress hoping and praying I could wear it for a special banquet. My mother thought it would be to casual by looking at the picture. We were both pleasantly surprised when the dress arrived. It was gorgeous! I figured I needed to order it a little big and was right. One size bigger made it a perfect fit. Fast forward to the night of the preverbal ball. Much like Cinderella the dress literally began to unravel. The sheer material overlay began to separate from the thread. There were also holes on the sleeves around the eyelets. I prayed the dress would hold together until I could make it to my car. I debated returning the dress for a new one... Maybe this was a fluke. But instead I think I'll just return it and be thankful I got to the car before the carriage turned into a pumpkin.
