Rated 4 out of 5 by no1shopaholic Must see in person to see its beauty!
I am not really into the crochet style and I was looking for a sweater dress but this item won me over when I tried it on for fun. The online pictures do not do this beautiful dress justice. It must be seen in person as it actually is a dark golden color (so us blonds will not feel washed out) plus you can't really see the golden metallic thread in the pictures (the pic with the short-haired model wearing the green necklace is the closest to reality). It feels and looks well made and there is some weight and stretch to the fabric. Very flattering cut - with an hourglass shape I tend to worry that heavier materials will add weight to my bust or hips but this one - whether the style or the cut - does not make me look larger. I am a D-cup and typcially a size 8-10 at Anthro and I got the Med so TTS. It is two pieces with a nude detachable slip underneath. This is a hand wash or dry clean item. I plan to wear it with some great wedge brown boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Inluvwithanthro Beautiful Dress
I loved this dress as soon as I put it on. I have a petite curvy shape and have a difficult time wearing certain Anthro dresses, most fall at an odd place at my hip. This dress, I feel, flatters my waistline and flows so nicely in the hip area to just above the knee. My only complaint is that the detachable nude cotton slip under the dress is extremely form fitting. It contradicts the flowy crocheted overlay. Maybe that Is how the dress is supposed to look and I am sure on a less curvier frame it is beautiful, but for me I had to purchase a new slip to place underneath that was a little more forgiving. Now when I wear it I feel amazing.....it is truly gorgeous! I have received many compliments too!

I just tried this on in the store yesterday and fell in LOVE. I have not bought it yet because it's a bit out of my price range but i haven't stopped thinking about it so I might have to pull the trigger. I disagree with whoever said it was too short, i thought the length was perfect, then again I'm 5'3". The material was quality! It felt nice and heavy and was very flattering. There's a nice shimmer to it, I think it definitely looks a lot nicer in person.
