Rated 5 out of 5 by Naeco Simple, classic and modern all in one
This is cut beautifully and drapes well. It's classic, yet the embossed fabric and dual colors of the dress make it modern, as does the back gathering, which adds artistic volume. The dress is chic. The back is so impressive, I will even wear the dress backwards -- the pockets of the front just tucked along the seam with fashion tape. I love this dress. I just wore it out to happy hour cocktails and a light dinner with my husband -- and the thicker, embossed fabric was not too warm for our outdoor summer evening dining.
I cannot say enough about this. A wardrobe staple that is classic and modern rolled into one, which makes it easy to dress up or down. The model wearing this shows the dress oversized and I'm sure that's lovely if you're tall and waify, but I sized down for a more fitted look (but not tight). (FYI: right now my postpartum size is six, and I bought a small, and I love how it fits -- just a bit snugger than the dresses' look on the model. I'm 5'4" and 135 with an hourglass figure.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by ValsReview Great Design - Wonderful Style.
The photographs of this dress do not do it justice. The first thing that appealed to me was the texture of the fabric. I am a full-figured girl, so the cut was also very appealing. The length is just right and just as the other reviews say, though the fabric appears heavier, it is light enough to wear in the summer in Southern Cal.
The color choice was also brilliant making the design unique (as Anthro is so good for). Bravo on this one, Anthro buyers!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by FayeValentine The perfect birthday present
My girlfriend bought me this dress for my birthday this month and I am in love. I'm a 36B, 5'7" and 140 lbs and she got me a medium. The dress is a bit on the tight side up top but easily fixable with the right bra. And even though it is loose throughout the rest of the dress it still flows along my curves showing my shape. The color combination coordinates perfectly with my winter wardrobe and I can't wait to wear it out!
