Rated 1 out of 5 by BWeaves What's it got in its pocketzes?
1. I'm 5'5" tall, 135 lbs, and 36D-30-38 and the size medium fit me but was not flattering. It gapped at the armseye and the rectangle over my belly made me look fat.
2. What's it got in its pocketzes? The pocket bags are thick and wrinkled and make your hips look huge. If the rest of the dress had been flattering, I would have sewn the pockets shut and cut out the pocket bags.
3. The dress skimmed the body and hit below the knee.
4. The fabric is a very thin silky rayon with sequins, and it's lined with a thicker rayon. The pockets are made out of corrugated cardboard (kidding, but close).

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anthrosterical Exquisitely gorgeous w/ TERRIBLE pocket placement!
I am going on the TCM cruise which has a flapper night. I saw this at Anthro, and it looked like the perfect dress for the occasion without being too costumey. The fabric is fantastic and rich, and has a decadent look to it. Nice change from all the twee-ness.
I tried on the 4, and ye gods! The pockets poofed out ridiculously. I looked like I had two growths, one on each side. Now I adore pockets, but they are usually found on dresses and skirt with fuller proportions not a slim sheath.
But darn, looking at the picture makes me still want it. I may Wish List for a sale and have it fixed by a seamstress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BabyDuck Beautiful Dress with a Weird Fit
I received this dress yesterday. It is a beautiful and uniquely decorated dress. The purple is a little more bright and bold than shown in the picture, but the color is gorgeous. The neckline is the best feature of the dress.The detailing is unique as there are little mirrors, sequins, and beading there, which you cannot see in the picture. I love the Indian/Middle Eastern vibe and the lightweight fabric of this dress. Overall, I love this dress. The only issue I have with it is the fit. I usually wear a medium, but because it is a sheath dress and I have a big chest and hips, I ordered a large, but the dress runs large and therefore is a little baggier than I thought it would be. The pockets poof out and make your hips look wider than they really are from the front view, but with a belt the dress fits a little better and defines the waist. I am keeping the dress, but I wish the design of the shape of the dress was a little different.
