Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning! I bought this dress 2 weeks ago and have gotten so many compliments! It is light and airy which is perfect for summer! It is elegant and colorful and I just love the lace details on the chest. Great price point too! LOVE! July 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A total surprise for me I don't like busy prints...and this is what I'd typically consider as "busy". But I saw a review of this dress on a blog and it looked so good on the blogger that it made me want to try it on myself. I walked out of the store with it--it was flattering and looked nothing like anything else I have in my closet. The silhouette is simple and therefore goes well with the vibrant print. I love the top lace panel, I probably wouldn't have purchased it if it didn't have it. Shows a bit of skin in an otherwise low neckline that would probably show a bit too much when you bend down. The material is thin yes, but perfect for summer and I don't think it feels cheap at all. It's 100% rayon but doesn't have a whole lot of stretch. The waist band is elasticized, my only issue with this is the elastic doesn't go all the way around, so I'm a little concerned that it puts stress on the material where the elastic ends...some of the stitches don't look like they're very secure so I might reinforce it myself by adding a few stitches. In addition, the elastic causes some minor distortion in the straight line down the front of the dress because it pulls the material out. Looks a little odd, but only noticeable if that's what you're looking for. There are pockets but for a dress this thin I would only use it to carry my work building access card-this feature is much appreciated as I often forget my access card when I don't have a belt or something else to clip my access card to. I know some reviewers mentioned they will need a slip with this dress... I'm not sure why as nothing showed through when I tried this on. Overall I'm happy with my purchase but will keep an eye on the material snagging/pulling...just in case. Dress looks good with or without a belt--I will probably be boring and wear the dress with a thin black belt. My measurements are 36(34D)-29-37 and I took a small in this dress. The medium also fit but there was too much extra material above the waist and didn't look flattering. I typically do buy a small at Anthropologie. I'm 5'7" and the bottom of the dress hits about 2-3" above the knee. July 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it! It's beautiful, super comfortable, unique looking and very flattering. Love the pockets. Perfect for a party, a brunch with friends, a romantic dinner or a trip to a museum. Was hoping to wear it to work but it's a ted too revealing for work (mb if I wear a cardigan on top it's fine). Got it in S and it fits beautifully! the colors are fun. Overall very happy with it. August 14, 2013
