Rated 4 out of 5Â by sueloma Color for Cold
The velvet panel puts this in the winter season for me. The colors are lovely and the dress is well made. It is not the best cut. Even for a straight shift, the cut and chest darts could be more flattering. That said, I took the advice of another reviewer and ordered a size up. Big mistake. (pun intended.) it's too big. I think my regular size would fit. I'm just not convinced that this dress has a place in my wardrobe. If I go out, I want a little more flattering cut. This is not for work or day, so the use is limited to those times when one might want to look a little sexier than this cut.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by modagirl Comfort and quality all in one dress!
This dress is way prettier in person. I think it kind of looks ugly in the photo; however, when I saw it in the store, I was definitely interested. As mentioned in other reviews, the front and back panels are made of really beautiful velvet, while the rest of the dress is silk. It's not cheap, but I think the quality helps justify the price. My only complaint is that it runs really small. The inside lining I found to be especially tight. I'm normally a size 4, sometimes a 6, but bought this in an 8! Maybe it's just me, but I think this dress should be worn a bit loose, since the design isn't form-fitting, but rather more boxy. It looks really cute with black tights/boots. Great fall dress!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by InLoveWIthDesign Effortless and gorgeous
I tried this one one, despite some negative reviews, to find that I absolutely adore the dress. It has just enough drape to be flattering to my less-than-perfect belly and thighs. The fabric is gorgeous. Soft, velvet-and-silk. Colors saturated and show-stopping. I try on so many dresses at Anthro with high hopes -- and this one fulfulled them all. Needless to say, I bought it immediately.
