Gotta say I didn't recognize this online when I went looking to write a review. I almost passed it up in the store, as well, but it was facing the dressing room, I loved the "tribal" influence, and on a whim grabbed it "just to see". Big surprise how unique and flattering this is. On me it's a dress (5'1" 115 32DD) took the PXS/S and I plan to wear it that way with tights and booties. The front hit just above my knee with a slightly longer back. The top is not as loose on me as on the model and the bottom curves in slightly keeping it from being totally straight and shapeless. Will look great with the long two toned horn earrrings I bought at Athro last summer. Can't imagine it with boyfriend jeans, although it would probably be fine with skinnies. Although I usually look best in fit and flair, as I'm petite, but hourglass, I'm thrilled with this new look for me. Plan to wear it year 'round.

Another winner by Tracy Reese!
I wasn't sure about this tunic/dress when I saw it online, but in person the shading and design is so unique and eye-catching, you find yourself picking it up! The super soft fabric blend has spandex which makes this dress feel so good on as well. Because of the reviews I originally got a small thinking that as a petite person the dress would be overwhelming. But, I found the sleeves were super tight, so I sized back to my usual medium, and the dress fits very nicely. I say dress, because at 5'3 the front is only slightly above the knees. I also have good skimming coverage over my chest and hips, unlike the smaller size which was too exact. Feels like I'm wearing a big sweatshirt, except it looks so chic! Pair with a low ankle bootie and leggings or bare legs in warmer areas.
I have a very similar dress by this designer in the same fabric with a shorter cut and bracelet-length sleeves. I'm so glad that I didn't wait to buy that dress when it came out last Spring because it sold out before making it to sale. The fabric is substantial and drapes nicely. The quality is great. It is machine washable and has held up nicely in a gentle cold wash. The dress is quite versatile. I wear it as is, or with a heavier cardi or a fitted down vest in colder months. I would say the dress is TTS but suggest sizing up. Choosing a L from my usual M was perfect, as the style is body skimming and the fabric is knit. Go for it! I'm sure this latest version will not disappoint!

I bought this dress since I travel to several colder climates and wanted a work dress with long sleeves. I bought one of the beaded belts to wear with it, and it is beautiful. I get compliments from people every time I wear this dress. I do think the belt adds a nice touch and breaks up the longer length of the dress. I'm about 5'8" with very long legs, so I love the longer length of this dress. Definitely a winner.

Perfect - Love this dress!
I bought this in the store, and instantly fell in love. The sizing is true to fit, snug without being too tight, easy to pull over, and perfect for black tie or office wear, depending on the accessories. Worth every penny!
