The eye-catching gold color combined with the huge puff sleeves make this Alice + Olivia dress truly dramatic and fashion forward. Puff sleeves are very "in" right now -- although Chapin likes to say I'm coming from the '80s when I wear anything with a puffed up sleeve. (That's not necessarily a bad thing... is it? I loved the '80s!)
I love the dress. It's a little snug on me -- I'm wearing a size two and probably should have opted for the size four with all the desserts I've been eating lately -- but hopefully it's snug in all the right places.
The real problem with the dress: the thick fabric. It wrinkles so easily. I was pretty much a wrinkled mess from the time I got in the car to drive to the office.
