Rated 5 out of 5 by AussieOne Cute & Easy to Wear, Runs large
This dress is just like the Tied Spicifera dress including the fact that it runs large. I gravitated to the yellow Spicifera dress, but passed because the color just didn't work for me.
I ordered this online and was so happy when it arrived and looked just like expected! The colors/pattern is bold and bright. The fabric is a soft and lightweight cotton making it great when summer's heat arrives. The lining was cut similar to the dress, so sizing down is not a problem. The blue lining is edged in a red for a nice detail.
I wished I had followed the recommendations on the sister Spicifera dress and sized down. This dress runs large- I tried my usual size 4 (bust 35", 32dd, 130 #),and the straps are necessary to hold it up, but will fit better in a size 2 so I'll exchange it.
Nice length too, at 5 '7" it falls just above my knee.
The only down side for me is the price for a simple sun dress in a light cotton print, - this should be priced much less!

Rated 2 out of 5 by rosygal Just OK, Very light fabric, no pockets
This dress is just ok for the price. The fabric is very thin, like a viole or lawn cotton which makes for a good sundress, but can't justify the price. Anthro has so many dresses made from higher end fabrics with more tailoring at this price point.
Aside from expecting pockets at this price, the quality was just ok- one strap kept falling off the loop holding it in place in front. Dress was fully lined and didn't need a slip.
This dress is just average, cute and comfy, but overpriced. Size runs large so you may want to go down one size. Hits just above the knee on me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AnthroTeacher4 Very excited!
I just bought this in the store and I'm really excited to wear it to a few summery events I have coming up! My favorite part about it is that with the straps and the built in boning, I don't have to wear a bra with it and I almost always have to with strapless dresses. Only downside is that it's pricey, but of course that didn't stop me because I bought it anyway!
