I was so eager to try on this dress that I ended up wearing it straight out of the box for these photos -- so I'm sorry for the wrinkles! I was in a bit of a rush, since I took these right before I had to head to the theatre for the staged reading I did last week. I played Nellie Bly in the reading (if you're familiar with female journalists, you probably know who she was), so I kind of needed to wear my hair up, which always feels weird to me. But I sort of ended up liking it in these photos! Plus, this dress is so fluffy and pretty that I still managed to feel very feminine.
I'm glad I was able to get this dress when it went on sale, since I'd been eyeing it forever. I wish that ModCloth would specify brands on every piece they carry though, because this dress is actually made by the same company as this other dress -- which I absolutely love, but they have similar sizing issues. The skirts of both dresses are incredibly full, and both of their tops very snug. I'd definitely recommend sizing up on this one, since I could barely zip it up while wearing a bra. Both of these dresses are so gorgeous that I have to keep them, but I can't help thinking that if ModCloth explicitly stated the brand, I would have felt more secure about my sizing choice.
