I ordered this Ann Taylor Halter Trench dress a few weeks ago when they offered free shipping on any purchase. However, I can’t decide whether I should keep it or not. The dress fits me much better than expected for a 00R. The halter straps are a bit long and need to be shortened. I did pull both straps up and tied them with a hair tie in these photos. Other than that, it fits me well all around. The length is also perfect for someone my height.
My only concern is that where would I wear this dress to? Obviously, I can’t wear it to work because of the naked back. It looks OK paring with a cardigan. However, IMO, this dress was meant to be worn by itself. I also ordered this double-weave utility skirt (in 00R as well). I didn't even bother to take any photos because the fit was way off for me. FYI, additional 40% off everything ends today (in-store and online).
I need your opinions, ladies. For $60.00, should I keep it as a special occasion dress? Should I return it because I won’t get much wear out of it? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your input and enjoy the rest of your weekend =)
