If you have been thinking about possibly purchasing this dress, I strongly recommend you do. Why? 1. It's modest. For example, it elegantly covers your arms by having the sleeves covered but unlined 2. It's wearable all year long. I plan to wear it mainly in the fall, winter and spring. However, it's also suitable for an evening out in the summer 3. It is easy to style and can be dressed up or down. I styled it with black leather boots and a black leather jacket and it looks fantastic. I also paired it with a military style black jacket and it also looked great. 4. It's comfortable, although the size I picked is a little but big on me, it may feel different if you purchase a firm fitting size Last, the photos on the model make it look like the bow has to be tied around your neck. I choose to tye the bow lower so it looks like a bow coming out of the trim along the neck.
