I'm going to thoroughly read this review later when I have some time because it looks like a good one full of information, but I had to write a quick comment to tell you that this dress looks GREAT on you and I love all the pictures! No wonder that you feel 10 years younger in this, because it's such a lighthearted, spirited dress. Fantastic with the leggings, GREAT bag, perfect styling. I love it!

Great fun photos! And the dress is way too cute. Been there and done that with the zipper ordeal...what a pain! But as you said....all is well that ends well, and this certainly ended well.

Super cute version of this dress! I love the fabric! Also, you leggings are adorable. I gave this dress a chance a while ago and it didn't work. I think I may give it another shot!

What a great dress and fun photo shoot! I have done that zipper thing so many times that now I never cut the top off until I am sitting at the machine and ready to sew the facing on that will stop the zipper. I live with the floppy extra zipper tape through the fitting process.

You look simply fabulous in this, Deepika! The way you put this together, so fresh and original, yet, like my 7 year dd would say; "not trying to look like a teenager" :)) Just masterful. And what a fun review, love the inspiration to play with pics- you look great in every one of them.
