Tadashi Shoji Metallic Ottoman Sheath Dress
Ladylike and smokin'
This is a very modern dress which, paradoxically, has a classic, timeless look. The color is a true charcoal blend, and not too shiny. It's best worn by someone with a reasonably flat stomach, but otherwise it should make the most of any figure. I'm on the flat-chested side, and probably for this reason the straps were too long on me. Unfortunately, I don't currently know of a tailor with the skill I'd trust to alter a dress with a design like this which must be very carefully matched, so with great regret I'll be returning the dress. It's an excellent buy at the discount price. Would wear with silver or black shoes, long earrings, and a bangle bracelet; the neckline looks just great unadorned.
Super Classy & Sexy
I am very happy with this dress. It is true to size and length. I am 5.7, weigh 144 & hourglass figure. I bought the dress for a cruise but I think I will be able to wear it for multi occasions. It is just as nice as the picture. I am going to get the length taken up a bit so it is above my knee. My husband loves this dress and can't wait until I get to wear it. The "true fit guide" is a big help and now I can't shop at any other stores.
Gorgeous Dress by T
Tadashi Shoji is fast becoming my favorite dress designer. This is the 10th dress I have bought from this label in the last few months. This dress just looks expensive and elegant. The metallic fabric is NOT itchy, I think its printed metallic not woven. It is not a cheap shine either. Somehow the silhouette works beautifully with the different cutout panel angles and pleats without overdoing it ... so that YOU are the centerpiece not the dress. It compliments a busty figure very well. Wear it with white gold or platinum accesories with a somewhat geometric design.
This is a very classy dress. Looks better in person. Fits beautifully. I had to size down one size. It fit perfectly. Very sophisticated. Picture does not do justice to this dress!
