Wasn't sure about the dress
When I tried the dress on, I was a little disappointed that it was a little shorter than I thought, even though the picture shows the dress above the knee approx 4 - 5". I would definately say the dress is true to the photo. Being an almost 50 woman, but stylish, I contemplated sending it back because it wasn't long enough. However, I paired it with black tights, wide black belt, and black suede booties, and WOW, it was fabulous. My whole family complimented me on how pretty I looked. I did not wear the scarf, I felt it was itchy against my neck. One last thing, the dress shows lots of curves, and if you have the dreaded " muffin top " like me, I would suggest wearing some type of tummy control under garmet. I did and it worked great!!
