I'm seeing an older man and as soon as I walked out in this he said, "STUNNING!'. When I say older man, I mean the type of sophisticated gentleman who is urbane and observes cocktail hour, a man who notices every detail, and if it passes his litmus test so effortlessly, my goodness, I may wear it everyday!
I love the fabric, as always soft, just about wrinkle resisted, flows. The design on the fabric is played out perfectly to flatter any woman, and the for the busty woman, there's no need for a cami, they've got your cleavage covered, literally. The back is cut low, too, which is really nice (said older gentleman pointed that out, he said, 'it may just be me, and that I'm a swimmer, but the low back is a real turn on I think for men in general.')
I can find nothing wrong with this dress, and well, everything right! In an effort to beg spring I wore this dress today, and I have OPI's Cajun Shrimp on my nails--HOLY COORDINATION (by accident)!

In LOVE with this dress!
This dress is amazing! Yes, the price is high but it is WORTH it and you will feel like a million bucks wearing it. For reference, I'm 5'1", 118 lbs, average build, small (34A) chest. The XS Petite fits perfectly, with my flat sandals it just barely skims the floor. Coverage in the front doesn't gape, and so even when you bend over there is no sign of cleavage or bra (at least on me), the back as well doesn't come down so low that your bra is showing (though I think you could totally get away with not wearing a bra at all in this). The sleeves on me are true to the model; just barely a cap-sleeve over the shoulder. The fabric is amazing, not too light, not too heavy, and is just weighty enough to drape perfectly and move fluidly when you walk. The dress is lined from the empire waist to the knees with a navy blue slip (in the same fabric as the rest of the dress), in case that matters to anyone. The colors are bright and vibrant, and would look great on any skin tone. This will get a lot of wear from me, definitely worth the money!

Vibrant, Bright & Comfortable Summer Dress
I bought this for a wedding I am attending this summer. I wore it for some pictures, and I received many compliments to how beautiful it is! It fits and feels great. This will be in my closet for a long time to come! I am 6'1" and it is long enough for me!
I love the material of this dress, the print and the vibrant colors, which is why I bought it. For me, though, it needed the straps altered. It is criss-cross in the back, and while it looks good, I hate wearing a strapless bra (I have 2 kids, it's impractical unless I want a wardrobe malfunction, I swear), and with my bra criss-crossed, it was too busy. The answer was taking it in and having the straps straightened out. It was an inexpensive fix and worthy investment for such gorgeous, vibrant print.
My complaint (I can't complain about the straps, those are just my quirk) is that it is a little short. I like my maxis pretty much on the ground, it could stand to be a 1/4" longer, but I'll deal (I looked around at women this weekend and noticed that many wear their maxis at a bit more off the ground than I do, maybe it's smart, I'm not going to trip!).
With a tan, I'm pretty sure this dress will be SPECTACULAR!

Great dress for summer
I was looking for the perfect summer maxi dress and was very pleased to find this one. Love the colors and material. Can be worn casual or dressed up a bit as well. Big plus- it has pockets! I'm 5'2 and the length of the MP size was perfect. I will agree with other comments about the chest area being small. I'm large chested and would usually prefer a little more coverage, but I love the dress and can easily add a sweater for better coverage. Definitely worth it!

As soon as I saw this dress I knew I had to order it. I am 5'9" and a 36C and my usual M fits perfect, other than being a tad bit short but that is inevitable when you are 5'9". The fabric is comfy and stretchy, colors are beautiful! This is going to be the perfect dress all summer long!
The photo here makes this dress look slightly like a window curtain, but I swear it's much more flattering in person. I tried this on in store after seeing it on display. This dress would be great for concerts/festivals, traveling and general casual use. Depending on your office environment, I could also see this as work appropriate if styled correctly.
The good: The dress is super comfortable, true to size, leaning toward a more relaxed fit. The color is a lovely shade of warm ivory and the lace is quite pretty, in my opinion. I also love the shorter chemise/slip and longer outer layer. It makes the dress modest without being old ladyish
The bad: The dress is way too long. I'm 5'6' and this dragged on the floor for me in a medium. However, when styled with a more substantial leather belt, you can blouse the top a tad and take off a few inches there. (Warning: This also makes the slip shorter so take that into account when determining sizing). Also, the belt it comes with is pretty much useless. If you are petite, or even just shorter than 5'6, the length on this dress might be an issue for you.
Overall, I would recommend this, but definitely ditch the attached string belt and use a more structured accessory instead.

Beautiful and comfortable
5'6, 140lbs, curvy frame - S fit perfectly
Received tons of compliments. A little bit, I feel like I'm about to get married on a beach, but some chunky wooden jewelry fixes that.
Love how the inner lining cuts off at the knee.

Pretty enough for a beach wedding
I bought this dress in the store a couple of weeks ago (I had trouble trying to find it online to leave a review). Very comfortable, it feels like you are wearing a super long t-shirt. I sized down in this dress so I could have a little more fitted and wouldn't have to hem the bottom. I would say it runs true-to-size to slightly large depending on if you want a loose or fitted silhouette. Very feminine lace design, in a cream color.
I purchased this in the store on April 9th for a trip to Tahiti. The material is beautiful and so is the dress. The only negative is that I have to take in the waist of the dress because it just falls straight and could look so much better with that adjustment. All in all, that's still worth it to have such a unique dress for the summer. Highly recommend. Also runs large - I am a size 4-6 and purchased an XS.
I received my dress today and its so adorable. I wasn't sure what size I was because I never bought this designer before. I went with my regular size (small) and the dress fit perfect. The fabric is amazing, so soft and comfortable. I am tall but for some reason maxi's are still a little long but this one is perfect. I will be wearing a flat sandal and flip flops as well so the length was just right on this dress. Normally they make these day dresses so long you trip over them, not this one. I love the stripe in this dress makes you look slender. The blue coloring is so pretty. I am very happy with my purchase and this was a really great find.
