Two days ago, EIGHT articulate, perceptive, loyal readers voted in favor of keeping the unwarranted cocktail dress despite having only seen said dress in a blurry cell phone photo.
Ladies, I was thrilled to bits by your feedback and support. But before I do anything rash like (gulp) removing the big, red “DO NOT DETACH THIS TAG” flag, let’s see a better photo:
My only complaint? The skirt rides up when I walk, creating a little horizontal fold across my lap which I have to tug back down periodically. My weight’s been trending downward [since I stopped eating chocolate bars with every meal and baking thrice a week], but there’s no telling if and how my measurements will change with weight loss. Can I live with tugging the skirt?
For reference, this dress is an Adrianna Papell Split Neck Stretch Taffeta Sheath Dress in Mood Indigo. Big title for a dress, eh?
I got lucky and found mine at Ross, but you can see (full-priced) others here. The professional picture gives you a better look at the neckline detail and cute waist-ruching.
(Psst! Katie! I didn’t see a 16 in taffeta, but I DID find this jersey version in royal blue. One reviewer said it felt more like a silk blend.)
SO, articulate, perceptive, loyal readers— now that you’ve seen a clearer photo, should I still keep the dress? Would you?
