Rated 5 out of 5 by Ironwoman Classy Party Dress
I searched for a dress online and loved this, because it reminded me of Rumplestiltskin from OUAT (and I adore him!), but I was trying to stay away from black. So I searched others and made a list.
I went into the store, never having been inside a Bebe, and was offered complimentary champagne. Pampered by great employees at the Ala Moana location, I tried on many styles and colors, and this dress that I did not intend to buy, ended up being the best style, best fit, and really showed off my hourglass figure. I worked hard for this figure, after months of hardcore exercise and eating lifestyle change. Wearing this dress makes me feel powerful and classy. Hourglasses don't need a lot in their clothing, and this was perfect!
The one con about it that I've noticed was the sticky stay (non-slip string? I dunno what it's called) on the inside at the top. The dress, with the strapless bra I will be wearing underneath, rolls out a bit if I don't keep an eye on it. But I doubt others will notice as it's black, and blends in well with the glossy animal/paint texture.
The hem is the perfect length, slightly above the knee, to give it that pencil skirt sexiness. As much as I love showing off my work with short dresses, I don't want to work on not revealing my rump when I bend/kneel over. That makes me self-conscious about moving comfortably, and that's no fun at parties.
Kept simple and beautiful, light-weight, but high quality material, and for the right price, I highly suggest this wonderful piece.
I will be returning to Bebe, if not for the awesome customer service, and feeling comfortable in the store (that wasn't the champagne talking), for the quality work put into the fashion to really helps me find the best outfits for a body shape hard to shop for.
Thank you, Bebe!
Bought size Large. 38C bust, 33 waist, 41 hip, 178#. Dress fits true to size and still dropping the inches. Hope the dress doesn't slip off or I gotta return for smaller size. ;)
