Rated 5 out of 5 by Debsen Great for Upcoming Holidays
I happened to be in my local Anthro store 2 weeks ago when this dress really caught my eye hanging in the store. The picture above doesn't do it justice. It just sparkles and shimmers and is fabulous for any upcoming holiday parties. I plan on wearing it for my parents' 40th anniversary party in December, the office holiday party, and any holiday dinners. One plus is that it is the rare dress that it has sleeves, which is great for winter, and I love that I can tie the belt to accentuate my waist. Plan on wearing with some fun earrings, tights and heels. FYI - The sleeves are a bit sheerer than the rest of the body of the dress. I'm also 5'1" so the dress is not as short as it looks like on the model in the picture (I bought a regular). The only other thing is that I did go a size up from my size 0 to a size 2 so that it flowed beautifully. Women who are pear shaped may want to try on one size up from their normal size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by urbanruffles perfect party dress
I think the pictures online don't really do it justice. The gold foil on black gives the dress a very vintage look. I think it's the perfect dress if you want something fun but still grown up. I'm 5'0 so the regular is down at about my knees. I'm gonna order the petite version to try, but wouldn't mind keeping the regular lengths for a more sophisticated look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nico65 Lovely dress!
I love this dress! I am 5'7, 130 lbs and the dress is a little longer on me than it appears on the model- I would say it hits midway between my knees and upper thighs. I ordered a 6 and it fit well- it had a classic shift shape without trying the sash, but was not too loose. Tying the sash definitely gives some definition to your waste. I was worried the gold "sequined" areas might be itchy as I have sensitive skin, however I didn't notice any irritation when I had the dress on. This would be great for dinner dates, holiday parties, and possibly even a less formal winter wedding. This is a welcomed new addition to my closet!
