I bought this dress in the Champagne color to wear for the holidays AND for my 40th birthday party. The fabric is good quality and the sequins seem to be well placed, not itchy or scratchy. The dress is not heavy and I love the long sleeves and the fact that the wrap dress style allows me some flexibility to adjust the waist and bust. It also arrived quickly and the dress was neatly folded and wrapped in pretty pink tissue paper when it came. Very pleased with my purchase.
