Rated 5 out of 5
Â by shoppingurl Super cute!
I love this designer, and have not been disappointed by her clothes yet.
This dress is no exception. When I first put it on, I thought that it made me look like a little girl because of the full skirt and poufed sleeves. But my friend insisted that I buy it, and the longer I had it on the more I loved it. I guess it kind of grew on me. It's definitely a unique dress, and you will stand out for sure. (and looks better with a belt)
I found it to be tts, and took my usual size 6 and had a little room to spare. For reference,
I'm 5'2", 132 lbs, 34D.
oh, and the fabric has a very nice weight to it. I'm actually surprised that it didn't cost more than it did. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Suze I haven't written a review in a long time but I felt like I should since is listed as "online exclusive", although my Anthro at Houston Highland Village had it in store. I'm 5'5 roughly 140 and carry my weight in my chest (36/c) and my hips (about 39/40 inches). I didn't feel like this dress felt too short, maybe 3 inches above my knee. It's definitely a mini but I didn't feel indecent in it and I'm usually uncomfortable in short skirts/dresses. It has a swingy-ness to it, but I don't think it looks too childish (I'm 25). This doesn't have pockets which I was sad to see but it's not a deal breaker for me. I had trouble opening the button at the nape of the neck to put it on but it was easy enough to slip on once I did. I normally wear a 6 or an 8 in Anthro dresses and usually will size up to an 8 if the dress doesn't have any stretch but the size 6 was the right fit, even a little bit loose. I probably could have sized down to a 4 but then I wouldn't have much room to move or eat. I think girls with smaller chests could easily size down from their normal size with no problem. I feel like the picture on my computer makes the blue look a little drab but I was pleasantly surprised to find that while it is a grey/blue it doesn't have that sort of "dirty" look I tend to associate with muted colors. Another thing worth noting, I'm usually weary of cotton poplin pieces because I think of poplin as a stiff fabric but this dress is actually pretty soft to the touch. I would love to see this in a different print but I may cave and buy this because it's so flattering on an hourglass/pear shape.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jcrewuchick Cute style, good fit
This Charlotte Taylor dress reminds me of what I used to come to Anthropologie for... great fitting clothes with a touch of whimsy. The dress is not nearly as short on me as it appears on the model (I'm 5'8''), and I love the way it fits. The print is nice, too, though I wish the colors were more vibrant. I think the price is decent for the quality.
