Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sunshine27 Love it
I fell in love with this dress when I first saw it but couldn't justify the full price. It went on sale and then went 25% off of that so I had to try it. It s definitely a thin material, not worth the full price, but when wearing you can't really tell. But I can justify it for the sale price. I am a curvy 6-8 and ordered the small. It fits perfectly not too tight but also not too loose. So unique! I can't wait to wear it! I will wear with tights and boots in the fall/winter or in summer with sandal. All year wear!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by pymblewiz Most flattering and beautiful dress I now own
This dress is designed for someone tall and slim. It is a blouson style from a silken polyester. It would not work if the material was more substantial as it is meant to flow and drape. I am 5â€™ 10â€™â€™ (size 4) and loved this dress from the moment it appeared. I ordered a small and have long arms so was glad the arm length was appropriate. It is long and thankfully has given me an option aside from the mini dresses on offer. The torso section for the small was perfect for me but I have a long torso â€“ more proportional mid sections may be overwhelmed.
The print is just beautiful â€“ the blue tones compliment a fair complexion/dark haired person very well and no doubt it would suit may looks due to the black accents and vibrant shades. Bear in mind that it isnâ€™t a natural fabric with a lot of body covering so itâ€™s best suited for mid-season or night-time ventures. I took a star off for polyester but suspect the print may only work on this fabric.
I would wear this to a cocktail party or gallery opening. It is a high fashion, beautifully sophisticated dress, however it would no doubt be too much length for a person more petite.
With the crossed nerodia wedges in snakeskin it is a killer look.

Evocative of the 1920s with a very 21st century photo print, this dress is super flattering. It skims over hips yet is cut slimmer on top (not a blousy blouson). My quibbles? It's polyester (though looks and feels like silk), and the hem is top-stitched. The latter is the sign of a cheaply made dress, but this one is carefully made in other ways (the cording is top drawer). So I will sew a narrow handkerchief hem to hide the machine stitching. It will also require a cami as it's just a tad too low cut on 5" 2" me. Otherwise a great day piece or a dress-up piece that doesn't "try too hard". FYI: In your hurry to try it on, don't forget to undo the button at the neck. I didn't and almost strangled.
