I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

I absolutely love this dress and I fully intend on getting the other two colors as well. I was just very pleased to see it completely match the product page picture.

As much as I would want to give it 5 stars, since my seams were all wonky I can't.

Pros:
Super comfortable, absolutely adorable, and it's so bright!
Cons:
I had sequins poking out of my seams and they can really rub your arm the wrong way.

Are Dorothy's ruby red slippers not enough for you? How about a whole dress! I collect all things Wizard of Oz, so whenever I see ruby sequins I am reminded of those slippers and I have to have it. This dress was one of those things.

I was so pleased to see the dress looked exactly as it did on the product page. There might be a slight color difference(as in it's brighter in person) but it's pretty much the same. So what you see is what you get. It's a tank-style dress, and yes it is mini.

When I first received the dress the first thing I did was check to see how well the sequins were attached. Most of them lay flat and are straight, but some of them were sticking up where the seams are. The dress has three seams going down it, one in the back and two on the sides. When they joined the two pieces together, they kind of just folded the sequins in half and sewed right on top of them, making them stick out down the majority of the seam. You can't really tell by looking at it unless you're downright examining it, but you can feel it with your arms when you walk. It's not terribly bad in the armpit area for me, but I'm sure it will irritate anyone who wears it long enough. I don't think the dress would be as itchy if the seams were done correctly.

Another thing I noticed when I got the dress was on the inside, when the seam going down the side was being sewn together, the sewing machine messed up a little causing a good 3 and a half inches to not get sewn together. Since it's on the inside I figured it didn't matter so I fixed it myself.


Material: 100% polyester + sequins.


Sizing and fit:

Dreamgirl's size chart:
MEDIUM:
Dress size: 6 – 10
Cup: B – C
Bust: 34 – 36"
Waist: 26 – 28"
Hip: 36 – 38"

My measurements:
Dress size: 5 – 8
Cup: B
Bust: 34"
Waist: 29"
Hip: 35"
Height: 5'6"


I purchased the medium and it fits really nicely. My waist is slightly bigger than what it says a medium will fit, but I feel like the bottom half gets a little bigger so there's a little extra room. I don't have a lot of cleavage in this dress, but I normally don't in something unless there's a lot of magic going on in the bra department.


Care: The tag says dry clean only, but I've hand-washed this and hung it up to dry and it's fine.
Experience
I've had this dress for a while now and I still don't have proper shoes to go with it. So lately I've just been wearing the dress without any leggings and just wearing a pair of red chucks. I guess that's a 'casual' way to wear it. I can't wait until I actually have better accessories for it.




And one last note...
If you have cats I wouldn't recommend hanging this up anywhere they can see it. I had mine hanging in the bedroom from the blinds and my cats just thought it was the best play toy mommy had ever gotten for them. I now keep it in a closet.
