Her line encompasses everything from swimwear to cashmere coats pulling inspirations from nature, world travel, and fantasy.
This dress is LOUD but that's the point of Mara Hoffman prints - they are fun and perfect for Spring/Summer. THere was only a size 2 available so I bought it even though I'm usually a size 4. It works but is a little tight on the hips. The length is perfect with a 2 inch heel that I like to wear for weddings. If a 4 was available I think I would have preferred that but I will suffer for fashion :)I am usually a Medium in her swimwear. I am 34C size 4 5'4" tall.
