"I love this dress ! The fabric is a luxurious silk, and the colors are more vibrant than you can discern from the photos. it was tricky to find something to wear underneath. ( I wanted a long under layer so it wouldn't be so sheer)i ended up using a black silk long nightgown with spaghetti straps which worked perfectly. The dress is both elegant and comfortable to wear. Can dress it up or down. i wore it with gold strappy sandals, which looked great"
