Rated 4 out of 5
by tbj90 Unique and beautiful
The length is perfect in front; the dress hits just above my knees. It feels a bit short in back. The darts are slimming, and the dress fits true to size (I'm a 12, but I might've fit in a 10 okay, as the design of the dress is somewhat loose). The dress is teal, which is still a nice color, but I would've preferred the blue depicted in the picture. Love the cut and the pattern! It looks good with heels or tights and boots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FJRM Beautiful Origami Print Dress
This is a beautiful dress that is a rich turquoise blue. I was drawn to the origami bird print on the dress and it is what makes this dress unique. I must admit that I am drawn to any clothes that has birds on it. I ordered a size 2 given that I am a 34B 5"2 and 115 pounds and size 26 waist. The waist line is right below the bra line and it fit just right. The pleats are slimming if you have a little belly and the dress hit well above the knee. It's nice that the hemline is a bit on the shorter side because the chest area is so covered up. The chest area is a bit roomy but that is the way it is depicted on the model. This dress does not have pockets and has a side zipper. I can imagine going to work and out to drinks in this dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ree511 Not Quite What I Expected
I had high hopes for this dress, but was disappointed. The color of the one I received wasn't the nice powder blue of the photos, but a very bright teal - not at all what I was expecting. I ordered my usual size 6 and it fit fine, but I felt like the proportions were off. There's a lot of material on top with the higher neckline and thick shoulders, but then the skirt is a bit too short to balance it out. I looked like I had very wide shoulders, when mine are actually on the narrow side. It just went too far past balancing out my narrower shuolders wth my wider hips, and gave me a bit of a top-heavy look. It just looked odd to me, so back it goes.
