this is a beautiful little dress. It has swingy panels that swish around when you walk and looks so bohemian! I cant wait to wear it with black tights for fall. It runs a little big, because it is a looser fit dress... I am usually a 6 but got the 4. the slip inside is a soft, stretchy jersey that is comfortable. A little short- I'm 5'6", but not revealing. And i will most likely be wearing this more in the fall/winter with tights anyway. I love dresses with movement- like dresses that flare out when you spin and walk and this little dress is so much fun!

This dress is wonderful! I love how it fits and I love the colors! So happy with my purchase; the print is super lovely. The fabric is a little bit skimpy, but not really a problem. I definitely recommend this dress!

The longer pieces at the sides are panels that move when walking. The fit is very generous so one could easily size down. The length is good meaning not too short. The colors are vivid and may go into early fall but the white background will limit the seasons for my use. What irked me about this dress is the slip. It is a very nice weight and has a nice gray/sand color, but this is a slight racer-back cut dress and the slip shows unless you use the inside shoulder snaps. They should have criss-crossed the back straps. One snap on my dress was broken. Also, the slip should be v-necked like the dress and it is cut straight across the front instead. I happened to have bought the purple silk kimono jacket with the white beading also made by Leifsdottir, so I have a very dressy look with both pieces. But even on sale, it was very expensive. I'm not a hugh fan of silk.
It rained the first day I wore it and got those crinkled dots that water spots do to silk. By the time I got home it was pouring rain, so I slipped off the dress, threw it on the back seat and ran for my front door in the slip! I had worn it to a lunch date and dropped the lemon slice for my iced tea right in my lap, so it's off to the dry cleaner, which is expensive and time consuming.
