Well made but kind of little house on the prairie

I intended to wear this dress on a date with over the knee boots, but when I tried it on it was a little more conservative than I had imagined. I'm 5'9" and it nearly went to my knees. Wound up wearing a different dress and sending this one back. Overall, though, the fabric is nice and not staticky, the waist is fitted with a small zipper in the back so the gathers at the waist lay nicely.

So many compliments

I received this dress as a replacement in my order and was a little hesitant on what it would look like, but it was beautiful. The fabric is very high quality and lays well. I ended up wearing this to work and then out for a valentines dinner.

Lots of compliments

Really comfy and blousy - sort of a Little House on the Prairie vibe. A little more voluminous than it appears, could be overwhelming on smaller frames.

Runs VERY Small

Renting this for just running around errands and frankly couldn't get it over my shoulders. It's a pretty dress but definitely made for someone extremely narrow and small busted.

As other reviews stated it is a little house on the prairie but I received lots of compliments on it! It was too big so I would size down!

Great dress!

Wasn't sure about this dress as it's more flowery than what I usually wear, but I wore it to work and got a lot of compliments. I'm 5'10" and it ended up being knee length on me.

Great print!

I loved this dress. I wore it twice during my rental - to a nice lunch and to work. It is a pretty conservative length (even on my 5'11" frame), so felt most comfortable in a higher heel. I also preferred to add my own belt, rather than the string belt that came with it. Ill definitely rent this one again!

Perfect work dress. Wore to several holiday lunch events.

The pictures don't do justice to how beautiful this dress is. the fabric is gorgeous, and the details and the drape of the silk are absolutely beautiful. I wanted to buy this dress and would wear it over and over if I could afford it. It is the perfect modern, boho fall/winter work look right now

Larger than expected, better for tall frame.

Length wasnt an issue as much as fit all over was intended for taller frame. Waist hit below natural waist line on me and tie/belt didnt help much.

Not a favorite

This did not flatter me at all. It had no shape and i just felt frumpy in it. On top of that it constantly was riding up and not sitting well and needing adjustment. It was so thin and constabtly staticy both times I wore it. Not a fave.

Not for petite frames

Beautiful print. Too much fabric in sleeves and above the waist. The dress does have a real waistband so it will sit nicely if you have the right frame. I should have waited for a 38 but still don't think it would have looked right

I didn't wear the item.

The dress was tight in the waist. Typically I wear a 36 in European sizing and 2/4 American but the 38 was a little tight. The print is much more dull in person. I opted out of wearing it.

It grew on me

I wasn't sure about this dress when I first tried it on, but it grew on me. I ended up wearing it with my own wide black belt. I felt the dress looked better with the pattern broken up. It was tight in the neck but fit fine everywhere else. Wish I had taken a photo.

The dress fabric was amazing however it was a really large fit. I paired it with some thigh high boots and made it work I received many compliments.

Stylist Review!

Fabulous floral dress by DEREK LAM! We love how comfortably chic this piece is for everyday or a quick brunch. Running large we recommend going a size down for a back up. This dress is comfortable providing room all throughout with some stretch. The dress drawstring along the waist line helps to accentuate your waist and provide great shape. This piece can be worn with a standard bra and falls about knee length. Pair with your favorite fall boots or heels and enjoy the day!

I rented the dress for work. I think if I had the right size it might have worked.

Was a bit frumpy. This is likely because the sizing was a bit larger than anticipated.

Nice dress, but VERY long.

This dress was great, flattering and fit well. The only problem was that it is extremely long! I am 5'7 and this came well below my knees but not long enough to be a cute midi dress. Awkward length. Felt overly conservative for my age.

Second Time's a Charm

The first time I ordered this, I wasn't impressed. It overwhelmed my frame, and was overall unflattering. I waited too long to rent a dress for Easter dinner, and when I saw this was available, I decided to give it another go in a smaller size. The results were much better, though I wouldn't order it again unless the pickings were slim.

Beautiful pattern and fabric

I loved the gathers at the neck line and the blousy arms. I wasn't crazy about the string belt, but it worked. The one thing was that the zipper didn't lay right in the back. The bottom of the zipper kind of stuck out. I still wore the dress, but was a little conscious about it all day. Other than that I loved it.

Didn't Fit Well.

Upon a glance, the dress looks like it just has a drawstring waist/easy to wear, but the dress has weird zipper at the small of your back with a few buttons. To sum it up, it was too tight and uncomfortable. Disappointed.

Gorgeous, flowy dress!

I wore this dress to work in February and froze my butt off! It is VERY sheer! The fabric is flows and moves however you do. It’s more for the Fall than Winter. I wore this with patterned black tights and received so many complements.

Didn't get to wear it

I am 5"4' and didn't like the way this looked. The waist is very fitted whether it was at the smallest part of my rib cage or waist, it was a tight zip. Once it was zipped, the top was very blousy and skirt was a bit long. The bubble on the top coupled with the longer skirt just didn't seem to hit me in the right place. The fabric and print are great. Just wish it had fit a little differently.

This one was not good for me

This one ran long in the waist, which was a killer on my short waisted frame. Not cute. It looked frumpy on me. Darn, had high hopes.

So comfortable. I wore this for Thanksgiving dinner. Loved it!

I enjoyed this dress. Very comfortable, well made and easy. I wore it with tall, heeled, tan boots. I felt it was youthful for my 48 years, but not too much. I am 5'8" and it hit me where it hits the model in photo.

Not for the vertically challenged!

Only three stars but my own fault: I should have read the reviews more carefully--this dress is NOT for short people. It's gorgeous, but I'm 5'2" and it was too long everywhere. Great dress, just not for me!

Fantastic dress!

Wore this for Thanksgiving dinner and it was fabulous! The print is gorgeous and you just put it on and forget about it, it so comfortable and with the longer length and high neckline you are never fidgeting or readjusting it. Absolutely loved it.
