Style: 31966120 Colour:
Gorgeous statement piece with an embroidered, embellished, and bejeweled bodice. Cap sleeves and an elegant dipped back. Pleated chiffon maxi. Fully lined.
Great Attention to Detail
This is one of those classic dresses - the quality is high enough that if you have a chance to re-wear it, you should. There's a good attention to detail in the upper bodice. The fabric is pretty rigid, which gives it the armor like appearance. However, the inside is well-lined and somewhat quilted, so the dress fits comfortably. All the hems in this dress are finished, so there will be no unravelling (like some Candela dresses). That being said, like all Candela dresses, it runs long. I had a good 4-5 inches on the size L, so you have to be over 5'4" to wear the L well. I would love to see this dress as a mini because it'd allow more short people to wear it well. I can't get over how great the top is constructed - really great detail to the embroidery. The coloring is somewhat brighter than it appears on the model - a more golden hue.
