Rated 4 out of 5 by MKDC Great suit alternative
As a lawyer, I am always looking for work-appropriate dresses that I can wear instead of a suit. This dress is perfect in that respect. The style is simple and classic, in a beautiful navy color and a substanial fabric, Perhaps the other reviewers were in the market for something more exciting, but I think this dress is a great wardrobe staple. I did originally order a size 6, but returned it for a 4. I found it ran particularly big across the shoulders.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Arlesienne Looks great, runs big, iffy quality
I wanted to like this dress. It has a lot going for it - great color and some good minimalist styling. I'm surprised by the reviewers who liked the fabric - it was a major turn off for me - it seemed a very cheap grade of polyester, like something you'd pay a lot less for elsewhere. At this price, I want fabric that hangs better and feels better on the body. The bodice was lined but the rest of the dress wasn't, which didn't make a lot of sense (except as corner cutting) since it's all the same fabric. The zipper of the dress I tried on stuck halfway down. The quality just wasn't there for me. The dress runs really large - I usually take a size 10 but I was swimming in the 10. The 8 was better but was still on the loose side, except in the shoulders, where it fit my very broad shoulders just fine.

I like that this dress is appropriate enough for the office or a day function. Its longer length and classic look make it a great blank slate for pilling on jewels and pairing with fun heels.
