Rated 4 out of 5 by LaurenSophie Pretty Print; No Lining; Cheap Fabric
First off, sizing: at 112 pounds/34B I typically wear a 0 in Anthro's dresses. But the smallest size this dress comes in is a 2. It fit fine with a comfortable amount of room to move around in. The belt has enough notches to accommodate a small waist and the skirt hit me right above the knees (I'm 5'4").
Fabric: It's 100% polyester with a slightly silky feel. There's no lining, which does make the dress feel cheap. I understand the price tag here is for the design, not the fabric, but still, it's frustrating to have to pay over $150 for a polyester dress.
Print: The best part of the dress is the print. It's got a mix of black, yellow and white on a soft red background. The ruffle neck is flattering and feminine and it's easy to pair the dress with a variety of different shoe colors and styles.
Pros: This is a pretty, attention grabbing dress that can transition from the office to weekend parties to bbqs.
Cons: Besides the fabric, the one con here is that this dress is strictly for warmer weather--in my opinion, it would be very difficult to winterize it effectively, even with layers.
Verdict: IThis is a lovely dress, but it didn't blow me away. I tried to not be overly fussy about the fabric, but it didn't feel that great against my skin. I ended up returning the dress, but might re-consider at sale time.

I am always a fan of a good throw-on-and-go dress, and this dress is exactly that! The perfect piece for those days when you have to run straight from work out to dinner with friends! The darts at the waistline create a slim silhouette through the body, and it runs true to size, hitting an inch or two above the knee, depending on your height. This dress is so wearable, I'd recommend snatching it as quickly as possible if you are in the market for a timeless staple!

Her designs are very beautiful but it's a shame that she does not make clothing in size 0.
