This dress gives an impact with just its presence. I received many compliments this day and felt like a thorned rose – Pretty and Impacting at the same time.
This is my first dress from the “Melissa Masse” line. It was comfortable and elegant with a little edge that I played up a bit with my spiked necklace (ROCKSBOX) and spiked metal cuff. I’ve been using animal print as my “new black” and LOVE how it contrasted the rose print!
The design is classic and can be worn in various versions to fit your own style. I wanted to keep it dressy-casual with spunk and kept it in this theme. My makeup is a neutral pallet with a grey eye shadow to emphasize the eyes. I went to work after this shoot and it’s a great look to convert in to an evening out. Can easily add a belt and a contrasting color scarf or jacket. Think of it like your “not so little” black dress.
Design and cut is giving and has a little bit of stretch. The skirt flowed around me but is made of a heavier fabric that I didn’t worry of it being swept by the wind gusts we were having that day. There’s a contrasting plain black panel under the arms and sides that helped accent the curves. It’s a full back zipper for a more fitted wear.
Measurements: 48 – 44 – 54 Height: 5’0
I’m wearing size 2X and it fit me a tad loose but don’t think my beefy arms (18″ biceps) would fit a size smaller – so keep this in mind. The length was about 2″ under my knee at my petite height.
