My transformation into crazy cat lady is nearly complete? What I love about this dress is that from far away it looks more like a geometric zigzag pattern, until you get close and see, yes they are in fact cats. The shorter length, Peter Pan collar and looser fit make it fun and youthful. I tried my usual S (5'6", 130lbs, 32D-28-38), and it fits fine. The length hit me maybe 3" above the knee, longer than shown on the likely taller model. It is fully lined with a navy T-shirt-like material (mostly rayon), so it is not at all sheer. Machine-washable. No pockets. I prefer a defined waist, and thought it looked cute with a belt; though at that point it's a little too short for work, at least in the summer with bare legs. Very cute dress.

This dress is absurdly cute. I might have (as apparently many Anthro shoppers are) a tendency to be a crazy cat lady, or at least a lady with animal printed dresses. Along with the pony dress featured earlier this year, I was immediately and irrevocably drawn to this catty number. At first, from afar, it's actually hard to tell that they are cats; it almost looks like waves (or as someone else mentioned when I was trying it on, skulls). I was immediately drawn to the sixties shift styling and the rounded collar, and when I realized it was green-eyed cats, I was stuck. (As the owner of a very adorable green-eyed cat, what is a lady to do?) But what actually pushed me over the edge for this dress are the details. The collar is sweet and fits well, and is fastened by a cute, stamped button at the back of the neck. The dress is swingy but not heavy, and there isn't too much fabric, something that can often happen with looser fit dresses. The top layer has a navy background, but the lowlights of the cats are black, and both ivory and white are featured, making the variety of neutrals available for coordinating shoes and accessories pretty simple. And it is lined with a soft, light, jersey-esque material that brings this dress up one notch from just adorable to super comfortable. It's easy as summer-wear, but I think will be just as sweet with tights and a cardigan this fall, something that one starts to think about as we head into August.
All in all, this one is pretty hard to refuse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SMK7 Super cute swingy kitty dress!
Tried this on in my local store in a small, which fit me perfectly. For reference, I'm 5'8", 34B, 140lb, and usually wear a S/M or a 4. It's short on me like it is on the model. Super soft lining, comfortable, and sweet print. My only complaint is that the collar feels slightly tight, but that's a function of the design.
Would definitely recommend if you're interested. Can't wait to wear out on a cool summer night and with boots and tights in the fall.
