Rated 3 out of 5┬áby Shorty Too much dress
I really wanted this dress to work, but it looked ridiculous on me. The neckline had way too much fabric so that it looked like it was swallowing my head. I have a larger bottom, and was worried about it not fitting on the lower half but that part of the dress actually fit fine, other than being too long.
The material is a little cheap for the cost. I also thought that the red/pink design was too bright, and looked garish rather than elegant.
Maybe this would work on someone tall and lanky, but I'm not convinced.

I just received this dress. I tried it on, and love it. I bought the dress mainly for the over design and especially the collar/neckline. I was a little worried about the colors when I saw it online. The background has the effect sort of like a pale pink wall with a subdued purple painted over it. The red motif design is like a tomato red. The dress comes with a chocolate brown belt. The picture shows that you can wear either brown or black with this dress. After putting the dress on, I prefer the brown. The material is polyester, and feels very smooth to the touch. I bought a size 4, and the dress is not too tight in the hip area. The material does stretch a little bit. I am a size 36B, and the dress fits nicely in the bust area.
I am usually cold-natured, and will need to find some sort of coverup. I tried a cardigan sweater, but it doesn't look right due to the bulky neckline. Perhaps a summer-like shawl will work.
In my opinion, this dress will be perfect for the office as well as after hours.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby 1979 Flattering fit and beautiful colors!
This dress is very "Joan" Mad Men style! It's classy, fitted in the waist, the tiny belt nips it in and it is gorgeous up top. It's not a lot of material up top as one would expect, but rather enough space to wear a chunky necklace if need be. I usually wear a 10 in Anthro dresses, but Byron Lars dresses run bigger, so i always order a size down. I wear a 36DD, have 30 waist and 38 hip. It is fitted in my hips, but everything else fits great. The colors are very beautiful too. The orange is brighter than in the pics and the lavender is more subtle. Over, this dress is sexy, classy and hugs in the right spots. A winner!
