I was on the lookout for a classic, simple, and versatile black dress, and when I bought this one, I was not disappointed. The subtle ruffle detail along the hem and wrists is so elegant. Plus, the fabric is the softest thing ever. So soft. So so so so soft. The fit is so flattering. It hugs at the waist and has a little flowiness to it. And to top it all off, as soon as I tried it on, I wanted to dance around in it, which means it's basically perfect.
