On our visit to the Bravissimo store last month, I tried on a couple of holiday dresses. Bravissimo’s Claudia Velvet Dress was the one I liked best.

This dress isn’t very fitted around the waist so I sized down to the 12 Really/Super Curvy (in US Sizing, 16 RSC in UK sizing). A major point about this dress – it’s short at only 35.4 inches long (I’m 5’7 and measure 49.5-39-46). It looks great with black tights and my black suede boots.

I truly thought long and hard about buying this dress but didn’t buy it because mostly I don’t need it. And I’ve been craving something other than solid black lately. It’s also kinda of short on me, but for a party dress I think that is fine. It retails for $110.

Would any of you have kept this dress?
