This outfit is even more mesmerizing in person than what it is in pictures.
It arrives in a beautiful shiny silver box and all.
The dress is absolutely gorgeous. The velvet is soft and flows well. It has only snaps- no velcro. There is a bow in the back- which also has a v-back design. The front's designs are beautiful colors, contrast well with the black, and look just plain stunning.
The stockings work quite well with this dress. I am glad they are knee-highs and not tights.
The shoes are not so good. I could not get them to stay- so I just used the black patent Mary Janes with this outfit.
One comment I have to make is that this dress seems more like a prom dress than what a tween would wear. Perhaps due to the back's design. It's not inappropriate- but I would not have worn something like that at age 10.
