Rated 3 out of 5Â by Ilovejakeryan Cute but you might need to try this in the store
This dress is a great, fauxish (half) wrap dress- however I just wanted to call people's attention to the fact that the print hits differently on each different dress if you are getting the navy version.
One previous reviewer commented that her dress print
hit in such a way that looked like she was wearing a thong outside her dress, and that's totally possible. I tried on two- the XS that while too tight otherwise was fine, and the S on which the print hit in such a way that I looked like I had a giant bullseye on my butt. Even the saleswoman laughed when she saw it (nicely.)
What I'm saying is that it's a cute dress, but you have to get the right one.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mybohemianstyle Love this dress, perfect for holiday parties!
I just bought this dress in black and can't wait to wear it to my holiday work party. I am 5 ft 8 in, weigh 140 lbs and bought the small which fits like a glove. I am a C cup and the top fits great, no need for a cami at all. I tried on the blue pattern in the store and loved it as well, but went with the black for the versatility. This will likely be in my closet for years to come. This dress works great on an hourglass shape, it's sexy without being inappropriate. At my height the dress hit about 3 - 4 inches above the knee and the sleeves are a true 3/4 sleeve. If you are more petite go for an XS, there's a nice amount of stretch.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by thinkingincolor Oh my word...look at the print on the rear
I tried on this dress loving it on the mannequin and thinking in would look great and give my slender, shapeless body some shape. I was right...beautiful dress, fits like a glove. However there were 2 problems. 1) although on the model here it doesn't look like you'd need a cami...on me it was extremely open and needed a cami underneath which ruins the lines of the crossover. The 2nd problem: LOOK AT THE PRINT ON THE REAR END!!! It looks like a thong on the outside of your dress. I almost bought this dress and was going to figure out a fix for the cami thing until I did one last glimpse of my backside (which looked great in this dress) and noticed (thank goodness) that the print gave the appearance of a thong on the outside of the dress. OMWORD!!! I almost bought this dress without noticing that. I went out into the busy dressing room area and asked everyone if they noticed anything wrong with this dress...they ALL noticed the thong. Look at the back picture. Wow. Not good. Fail.
