I picked this up on a whim last week and got so many compliments when I wore it out.. I styled it a little more edgy with a leather jacket and ankle booties while the weather is still chilly ( eternal winter in NYC this season!).. but cannot wait to break out some great sandals when the weather gets warmer... imagine this for a post-beach day dinner with friends... amazing.
I will say, this does run large - so maybe size down, the slip can also be a tad short underneath after a wash - so i let both items line dry.

The fabric is to die for
I have to admit that I partly bought this dress because of the reviews,though I have been looking at it since it came out. I just got this in the mail and I am thrilled. The fit is perfect, I wear an XS and sometimes a S.
I am glad I ordered the XS because there is a lot of fabric to this dress. The fabric is beautiful with a weave in the material and the dress just floats around you. It looks good with the sleeves up or down and it can be dressy or more sedate. I can't wait to start accessorizing.

CLASSIC with a touch of boho chic
LOVE this dress! It's both classic and boho chic and can be worn day or night, belted or unbelted, worn with heels or ankle boots... It's so VERSATILE!! I'm petite but decided on the regular size 0 as I prefer the longer length on me. There's plenty of drap and fabric, but it's not overwhelming at all - even on my petite frame. I highly recommend this dress!!!!!
Everything about this dress is amazing. The cutouts are in all the right places for it to be revealing yet flattering. The fabric itself is so thick and gorgeous. Heading to Italy in May with my husband and cannot wait to save this for a special night out! I am a curvy size 6 and it fits like a glove and I must say- looks better on a fuller figure than on model.
I almost didn't order this dress because it's described as a caftan; I wondered if it would be too sheer or open on the sides - more appropriate as swimsuit cover-up. But the dress arrived yesterday and was exactly what I'd hoped it would be - a comfortable, flowing informal gown - just right for my son's upcoming outdoor wedding The design and the opaque black and white and sheer colorful fabrics are beautiful, and the length of the M/L Petite (which is 4 inches shorter than the regular-sized dress) is perfect for me (I'm 5'6").
I bought this dress to wear to a few weddings this season. Its beautiful, the quality and fabric are both top notch. I love the neckline, the colors are vibrant, just like the images. I was nervous about the hanky hemline, but its fun and looks great with heels. I am typically a size 4-6 in more structured dresses and the 6 was a little tight. There is no stretch in the fabric, so I may need to size up to be comfortable all night. If you're in between sizing, I recommend sizing up in this style.
I fell in love with this dress as soon as i saw that beautiful poppy pattern. The fabric is really nice and the construction is very good quality. Unfortunately I am returning because it just didn't fit as well as I'd hoped. I could probably keep it and get a lot of compliments (because of the style/fabric) but it doesn't necessarily do much for your figure. The flowy top portion just has way too much fabric, and while it doesn't necessarily make you look larger than you are, it doesn't really allow your actual figure to be shown. My boyfriend mentioned that it didn't show off the parts of my figure that he liked. So sad because its just so pretty.
For reference, I am 5'5" and 130 lbs, 34B. I purchased the small and small petite. If I were to keep it I would go with the small petite because it hit at a more flattering spot on my legs (right below my knees). I have a long torso and the waist was just pushing being too high - but it was fixed with the adjusting the straps.
