Happy Halloween!



Still alive! I managed to get into Anthro for the first time in a long time recently, and I couldn't help but grab some snaps for old time's sake, particularly as I happened to have on the gorgeous Caridad Ruffled Dress


This dress is gorgeous, much more green and sophisticated in person than it seems on the website. The silk outer feels amazing (though you're going to want to keep it away from velcro/pets/small children as it seems fragile) and the sheer panel at the top lends it an extra something. The only downsides are the belt, which seems little more than an afterthought - but it could easily be left off or substituted for something else, like a skinny silver belt - and the slightly unfortunate bust darts, which can look like a wardrobe malfunction. The dress is so pretty, though, that I'm kind of willing to give it a pass! It does make this a try before you buy, though, as you need to see how it lays on you. 
I'm wearing a UK10/US6 here, which is the right fit for me as the size up was huge on me. A strapless bra is necessary to wear this dress, but as you'd only really be wearing this as an occasion dress, this shouldn't be too much of a problem.
Happy Halloween everybody!

Gorgeous!  I found this dress prettier in real life than the dull shot online.  And yeah, the sash is so boring!

It's beautiful!  I think your idea of wearing a skinny silver belt would be perfect.
