Comments about Emma Street 3/4 Sleeve Beaded Applique Taffeta Dress:
This dress reminds me of one my mother wore back in the 50s. Not because of the styling -- this is very modern -- but because of the horizontal design of the black over the lighter taupe. My mother had a similar dress, and that is why I love this one. It reminded me of her, all dressed up. My only complaint about this dress is it is VERY LONG. I am 5 foot 6 inches and I do not wear very high heels, so I will have to raise the hemline a good 4 inches. I am not pleased that dress designers and manufacturers make formal gowns so long. Most of us are not 5 feet 11 inches tall and some of us do not wear 4 inch heels, although I understand that many younger women do. Anyway, that is my only rant. Gorgeous gown. I just need to get the hemline raised.
