Embroidered Dahlia Shift

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality, beautiful details, size down I did not give this dress a second look online until I saw it on the mannequin at Anthro as not my typical style. Due to the looseness of this dress, I would recommend trying it on in store before purchase unless you really know how billowy dresses fit on you. I went down a size which made it a little less billowy (however if you have thick upper arms you may not want to do this as the arms with fit tighter). The material has some weight to it and is really soft and comfortable. The attached slip has spandex so it has some give. The details appear to be well made and are quite pretty. Color is as shown online: the lace at the neck looks black to me but does not look out of place with the navy, gold piping at neckline, and the flowers/flowers on print panels are white. I am 5'5" and the bottom hits a few inches above the knee as shown on model which makes the dress look modern not matronly. The shoulders have a slight puff to them. Due to the price, I agree with previous reviewers about this not being a keeper unless you love it. I will be having the sides by the bust slightly tailored in so to make it more fitted but I love this dress so to me it is worth it. On me, I did not like the look with a belt but that may be an option for others. I will probably pair with booties as on the model or tall boots and colored tights. September 20, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by too much pattern and material This dress was very soft and comfotable, but there were too many things going on with different patterns and waaaay too much material for it to be a keeper for me. October 5, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Huugue, like a tent I am 115lb, 5.5. Got an xs. It was like a tent on me. Have to get it tailored if i wanted to keep it. For the price, its not worth it to have additional tailoring charges in. But you ladies can size down if you love it. The material is beautiful and of good quality. The design, i liked it on the website. In person, i liked it the first day i got the dress. Its waning on me as the time goes by. Will be returning it next week. September 19, 2013
