^ If you love it, get the dress, sea of stitches. Polyester isn't necessarily the fabric of the damned anymore, these days there are many very high-quality and tactilely pleasant synthetics. If you're still hesitating, why not email the store and ask for a more detailed assessment of the fabric quality?

actually it's been worn by someone you know look at the seller's id.

i agree. i used to despise synthetic fabrics, and they still irk me sometimes, but some of it has become top-notch. however, i think if the dress is inexpensive, chances are the fabric will suck.

^i've emailed aloha rag to find out the quality of the fabric. it was $500something before sale and is $227 now (60% off). but i was thinking the price was due to all the beadwork (although it was made in india) and perhaps not the quality of the fabric. what price is an "inexpensive" dress to you? oh, and it's bernhard willhelm if that helps...

coldrice, have you tried the blazer on? Does it fit in the shoulder coz it looks kinda saggy, but that may just be the coathanger.
Otherwise, it depends how you'll wear it. If i was a guy i'd wear really blue jeans, a plain white tee and adidas or reebok high tops! That's me anyway. So yay.

yea, i would assume it's supposed to be snug. Just make sure you can return it if need be.
