Still, I'm willing to do what it takes to make the dress wearable.
I ordered this dress for $29.99 & tried it in a size 4 & a size 6. Both felt too tight. I returned the dresses at the store.
In Urban Outfitters' post-holiday sale, the dress went down to $17.99, so I bought it again in a size 8 & wore it with tights & a turtleneck to a New Year's Day party :-)
But, for work, it felt too short, so I had it taken down an inch & a half (the alteration cost me $15). I think now I can wear the dress on a casual work day if I wear a top underneath, or this summer, I can wear it with just a tank as I have here...
