    Belle, what are your feelings on the material for the Hill Staffer dress? I always steer clear of the polyester type shiny material for work? I would love to know if you think it is work appropriate as I have plenty of those types of dresses already. Thanks!

    Nancy-It's tough to tell how much of the sheen is camera flash and how much would be visible in natural light. That being said, I am generally not a fan of fabric that gives the dresses a sheen.

    I own the RL dress. It's beautiful, and not too shiny, but I can't wear it to my office because it's clingy. The cling factor makes it super flattering for dates (my husband loves this dress), but I can't pull it off as work wear.

    I agree with BB's comment. I hope I don't seem silly for posting this, but I wore a Ralph Lauren dress similar to the one Belle posted for this photo shoot in case you want to see how the material would look in a different setting: https://thehill.com/capital-living/173451-50-most-beautiful-people-2011-washington-congress-capitol?start=23

    I specifically chose it for the way the color would pop on camera, but didn't wear it at all while I worked on the Hill because of the way it fit all around. Hope that helps!
