Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful material, awkward fit As someone with light, coppery/golden tones to my coloring, I am stylistically allergic to the little black dress—wearing black washes me out completely. I saw this dress on the rack in a beautiful, shimmery, saturated warm blue with the copper print and thought I had finally found the dress I had been looking for this holiday season. Unfortunately, this dress hugs (and doesn't hug) the body in all the wrong places. I am usually a very reliable 4P and had to size down to a 2P, which clung to my hips but floated around my waist uncomfortably. Even worse, when I moved, the skirt would invariably bunch and ride up, creating a horrible bubble of fabric around my waist. Even in petite sizing, this dress hit me at the knee, making it look very matronly. I had to put it on the rack with one last wistful look at the beautiful fabric. If you are leggy and tall, this might work very well for you, but size down! November 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Drop dead gorgeous! I sent for this dress thinking, no way, it'll never look as great as it does on the model and the material will be disappointing. WRONG! It is beautiful and the material is stunning, even prettier than the photo. The blues and bronze are even prettier than the picture, very vibrant. Beautiful styling. I ordered a 10 and wear a 10-12 and it fit perfectly. I am very pleased. Now to find the perfect bronze heels. October 14, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beautiful colors but awkward fit I was really excited about getting this dress because it looks so beautiful in the pictures. The fabric is light and colors are true to the picture- lovely shade of blue and shimmery bronze. Unfortunately, the fit is awkward, as another reviewer said. I got the 0 petite (am usually a 0 in this brand) and am a 32C, 5'4", 126 lbs. The length fit fine in the petite, ends about 2 inches above the knee. The top part and arm holes were a little tight but not bad. I would have kept the dress but it kept riding up on my waist every time I moved and ended up just looking very unflattering and feeling uncomfortable. It's a shame, the fabric is really lovely. If only it fit better... November 10, 2013
