Babel Solid Silk Ruffle Dress

Ok, I love this style. Problem...the color is a muted brown ecru mud color and no where near the copper as depicted in the pictures. The size medium chest measurement it accurate of 31" and it does stretch a few inches. Not sure this is worth the price though, very disappointed in the color. I would only wear this as a skirt.
A Hot Mess...
After weeks of telling myself this dress was too expensive, I finally splurged because I was in love with the color and the styling and I had a couple of Nicholas K pieces that I go to all the time, so I figured would be the same. I was more interested in wearing it as a maxi skirt, so I sized up from my usual small to a medium. Nothing about this dress/skirt worked. The color in real life was flat and muddy. The material was a very heavy silk that was scratchy, and the ribbon detailing added too much bulk to the layers. It didn't float or drape at all - it just kind of clumped all over the place, making me look like I was wearing a messy sack. Even if I had ordered a large it would have been unlikely that this would have worked as a skirt. There is zero give in the material and the cut is very slim from the torso all through the skirt portion. Back it went...and I'm consoling myself with a giant store credit. If you are REALLY slim this might work, but definitely size up if you don't want to feel tightly wrapped.
