Super cute LBD alternative

I love this dress. It's comfortable, pretty, and very nice. I work it for a work panel and got very high marks. The sleeve detail is incredible. Dress does run a little large, but not sure I would have liked the smaller size.

Stylist Review

I am so in love with this dress that I've already decided that I'm wearing it for Thanksgiving this year! I love this color and it fit like a glove. I would recommend sizing up for your backup size, just because it is fitted in some places. I also really like that it's long enough to be appropriate for work or for a family gathering, and it's comfortable enough to wear for a long night and a big meal!

Perfect color for fall!

Wasn't sure about the material at first, but I loved it and the small bit of stretch it has. Sleeves are a nice cut and the buttons are darling. Really well made dress. Will rent again. Only disadvantage is that it's prone to wrinkling if you will be sitting much.

So cute!

Great dress for work! Good length, good stretch and the bell sleeves with buttons make it stand out! The thickness of the fabric hides any lumps or bumps...Really recommend this one!

EXCELLENT DRESS

A little short, but overall great dress. I️ wore it with tights. Definitely good for fall/winter. The sleeves have beautiful old fashioned buttons on the sides

I wore this to a work conference in the morning and into the evening to a Friday wedding.

Fit great, made me look slinder. Only issue for me (b/c im so tall) is it was a tad short, so sitting down and bending over weren't plesant. I put on tights which helped. It was a thick material which was good for cold temps. I dont think itd be pleasant for warm temps esp b/c the sleeves can't be pushed up.

Beautiful sleeve detail (beware, wrinkles easily)

Loved the color and fit of this dress (the deep burgundy color was rich) - and the buttons on the sleeves were a great touch. Overall, great dress and I enjoyed it. Only issues I had were: the length being a little short for work (which was easy to solve in the winter with some opaque black tights and booties) - and that it wrinkles very easily. May not be the best choice if you're sitting a lot that day! Otherwise, loved this dress.

Pretty fall color

Flattering fit. The slightly puffed and buttoned sleeves are pretty. It is shorter than I thought it would be - about 5"-6" up from my knees (I'm 5'4") so I wore tights under - it was also cold so it worked out. This color is really pretty - sort of a dark plum wine color. The color didn't photograph indoors well.

Cute, classic winter dress

Looked really cute with black tights and booties. Wore to work but could easily wear to a holiday party or night out!

Great fit, color, fabric, but short!

Everything about this dress is gorgeous - the button detail on the sleeves in particular. However it is very short! I'm 5'7" with a long torso so it might not hang as short on others, but I had to wear it as a tunic with leggings. It barely covered my rear end, so even with tights it wouldn't have been appropriate as a dress.

Very Short

I rented this for Christmas, but it was much too short--even the slightest bend exposed my underwear. Wouldn't recommend unless you're under 5'5"

Way too short!

This dress is a beautiful wine color with some nice button details on the sleeves, however it is super short!! No way i could wear this out of the house. The proportions on this dress were odd as well. The skirt flared out at a weird location on me and the skirt was not open at the hips, definitely size up for pear shapes.

Wine colored beauty!

Loved the cut and color of this dress. Loved the detail on the sleeves and buttons. Only negative is it wrinkled easily when you sit down.

Lovely sleeves!

Beautiful dress, fantastic fit - except that it's so short it doesn't cover my underwear. I'm wearing as a tunic with leggings.

Great dress

Great, great dress. Very flattering! Only problem for someone who is taller would be the length. Im only 5'2" and it was pretty short on me.

Great with gold!

I wore this for an internal women's day happy hour event and it was perfect. Short to be cute, and the long sleeves with the button details were sophisticated. The dress wrinkles easily. So if you sit for a long period of time, it will crease. I wore it with several dainty gold necklaces at different lengths and gold shoes, and it was a perfect look against the burgundy color.

Too small to fit in

I'm between size 6/8. Size 6 was the only one available, unfortunately, I was not able to fit in to it. recommend to size up, the zipper was very hard to pull up.

Crazy short dress. Barely covered my butt. Otherwise, it is beautifully made and color is great.

Dress runs true to size and fits beautifully. But be forewarned that it is crazy short. At 5'8", it barely covered my butt. The skirt has the length of a professional skating dress. If you can pull off that short of a dress, then I recommend you rent this dress. The details on the sleeves are beautiful and the brown color is very rich. I wasn't sure how many starts I should give this dress. I certainly couldn't wear this dress because it was so short, but if you are daring enough (or much shorter than me), it is a beautiful dress.

Cute but I'm 5'2'' and sleeves are too long.

Disappointing as dress is cute.
