by thisbefluff all season stable, different pattern
I'll second what the other positive reviewers said. One of the few times I've sprung for full price Anthro. I'm looking forward to wearing this to a summer wedding, but could easily see it showing up again at a holiday party. Without the top piece, it's perfect for a more casual lunch date. Two important caveats: 1) be super careful with the beading, I lost one just trying the piece on at home 2) the brocade is a different pattern than the geometric one shown on the model, it's lager, more organic/ floral and may snag (see my detail photo)

Rated 5 out of 5 by OneMtnAtATime So Versatile!
So...I never pay full price unless it's absolutely a must-buy. This is a must-buy. Not only is the color AMAZING and the fit very flattering (and I'm busty and very petite) , it's so versatile. You can wear it to a dressy occasion with the top on or the top off and some bling, but also you can wear it to a less formal occasion with the top off and more subtle jewelry. I can wear this to work with a cardigan, which is a plus. I am 5'2", 32DD,125lbs (athletic) and the fit is a dream. It hits a little bit lower than on the model but definitely above the knee. I don't expose anything if I over or dance, which is a plus. It's funky but respectable. And...I can ALMOST wear it without a bra because the top is structured enough. Perfect for me!

Rated 1 out of 5 by shopgirlchic Very poor quality
I died when I saw this style online released, but when I saw it in store I was so glad I didn't waste a shipping charge on it. I think this is likely one of the worst executed designs I have ever seen at Anthro. The design and concept is fantastic, but the quality in every aspect is rediculous. The "stones" are absolutely weightless plastic. And up close not nearly as bold and interesting as the pics depict here. The fabric, although a great color is more poly than anything else and has that "poly" sheen that only polyester has. It also looks like it would snag very easily due to the weave. I find more & more at Anthro my favorite brand that the short cuts and cheap route is taken in their designs. I would paid more for the design alone of this dress if i was executed in decent materials.
