learned the true meaning of “It takes a long time to look this good.” My purchase was way-laid but the gracious owner worked with me to track it down. And when it arrived…Oh!My!Goodness! It made my middle-aged self look 10 yrs younger, 10lbs slimmer, 💯 X more stylish & my legs a skosh sexy. Get the dress! You need it & you deserve it.
