Red Carpet Ready

I read every review for this dress before I made my purchase. I wore this dress to an annual award ceremony for my job. I work in costuming for Universal Studios. Though, I am a poor starving artist, this was not a night to be looking like it. The Ever Pretty Trailing V-neck Ruffles Cross Back Dress was an excellent purchase. The price fit right in my budget. The cut is form fitting. The design is figure flattering on any shape. I am 5'8,(36-28-40). I wore 6 inch heels, making me 6'2. I felt like a movie star in this dress. The length in the front covered my heels, but it did not touch the ground. When I walked, I was able to show off my peep toes with subtlety. Surprisingly the back still trailed down to the floor in my heels. I hand stitched & looped black ribbon underneath the train. The ribbon fit comfortably around my wrist & allowed me to carry my train w/out actually having to keep in my hand. The fabric has a luxurious look & feel to it. It's light weight, shiny & soft like silk. There is a bit of a stretch allowance in the fabric, which silk doesn't have. The packaging is very simple. I would suggest that the dress be steamed (NOT IRONED) to release all the subtle wrinkles. Steam will wake this dress up from it's packaged slumber. For under garments...I wore Bare Lifts (boob tape that lifts & covers the girls) & Spanx (seamless long underware). This is dress is chic, elegantly simple & oh so feminine. Tall, short, curvy, thin, it doesn't matter, this dress will flatter anyone. I have photos of me wearing the dress from the event.

I wore this dress for 2nd year at the Golden Woody Awards. I got more compliments this year than last year. I love this dress. It is sleek, stylish & very comfortable.
