I wore this top to my nephew's New Year's Eve wedding, and it sparkled and shone all night long! I love the fact it can be worn different ways. I chose to wear it with the shear side in front and the satin side in the back. It was super light and comfortable and very stylish--no slipping or sliding or readjustments needed after dancing. It was so well made--I will treasure this top for years and look for more opportunities to wear it. You can't beat the speedy customer service from Malaika New York!
