Such a beautiful dress!

I loved the fabric and the colors. I just can wait to find it in my size (it runs a bit small).

Very small sizing

I'm usually an 8 or 10 in dresses, and the 10 in this style was crazy tight on me. I've had an issue with this designer before so went with the larger size, and even that was tiny. Weird sizing.

Tight in bust

Runs small I am usually a size 0 and the 2 was tight in the busy only ! Had to squeeze my Boobs into it (32DD) but once it was on it didn't feel tight So many compliments More than expected You can tie the scarf thing in the front or the back Low cut I wore a cami for modesty Definitely unique show stopper dress The gold yellow is very flattering Beautiful detail

N/a

The color was not good on my olive colored skin and the dress was too long for a petite person

Unique Dress

This dress is very flattering and an attention grabber. The only part I did not love was the deep plunge with the high neck tie. I found the best look was tied to the side of the neck and just a half knot. It you tie a knot the fabric is too heavy and flops a bit.

Gorgeous and on trend

The fit was slightly tight in the upper arms but because of the pattern I was able to get away with it. There is a side zipper and the torso of the dress fits slim. If you are not small in the ribs and bust I would suggest sizing up. This dress is beautiful and flows nicely and I would consider renting again.

Perfect work dress for days between winter and spring to bring some color into work

The fit is great despite the dress being a tiny bit long. The collar is nice to tie. The only inconvenience for work for the flattering sleeves which made typing a bit hard.

Perfect transition piece.

Wore this in San Francisco at the beginning of spring. Perfect with sandals or with booties, by itself or with a leather jacket. Highly recommend!

Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking!!!

Amazing dress, received so many compliments every time I wore it. Such a unique pattern and cut. Just wish the chest wasn't so low cut, the bow definitely comes in handy covering up to make the dress work appropriate. Wore out for a dinner and drinks as well in nyc with fun heels and jewelry. Very versatile piece.

Beautiful Dress!! Extremely tight in the arms.

The dress was perfectly fitted in the body but WOW the arms were tight. If you have bigger arms like me I would try to size up and see if it's a better fit; it took some help from another person to pull the dress off. I received a ton of compliments. Perfect dress for a wedding if you're a dancer land like a little more movement in the bottom of the dress.

I got stuck in this dress for 30 minutes!!

Seriously--struggled to get this off. Unless you're super petite with a bigger bust this won't fit well. I have an athletic build with bigger arms and shoulders and this just didn't work. Beautiful on the hanger though!

So nice.

Excellent fit, cheerful color, perfect for work in the summer. (It's so cold inside and so warm outdoors!) Perfect length and lined. Loved the tie at the neck. This is a dress I'd consider buying!

Le Sigh

The reviews were spot on for this dress. The top size for the style is 14R but it felt smaller than that. I'm 5'7", 180lbs, 36DD wearing 12/14 in Banana Republic/JCrew. This dress was tight across my bust. Also, as several reviewers had commented, the sleeves were really tight. I was not going to be comfortable in the selection and chose to not wear it. Such a shame though, I loved the pop of yellow.

Beautiful and Flowing

I am a solid 14 and the top of this dress was a tad snug on me. The bottom was perfect. I loved this dress. Beautiful material, lined, fun sleeves and bow. Warning - it is VERY low cut. I would have pinned it even if I wasn't wearing it to work. A MUST RENT!

Great print, really flattering fit

Loved this! Sized up based on reviews. Fit was great (although difficult to get off). Upper body fit my petite frame well but it was a bit long - but I think the asymmetrical hem made it work.

Delicate but makes a splash!

Overall, I loved this dress and wore it twice even though I felt the shoulders and chest fit a bit tightly. I wore it once with the tie in a bow and a crew neck sweater over top that created a cute flare of the blouse at the wrists of the sweater. I also work this as is but tucked the ties in which really showed off what a great dress this is. Flattering and not too long on my 5'1 self though on someone much smaller the side slit may be a bit high for work without hosiery.

Comfortable, cheery dress!

Love this dress so much, think I'm going to keep it a while! Does run small in the chest but fits perfectly everywhere else. Super cool asymmetric cut at the bottom makes it move and drape beautifully. Dressed it down for a rainy day with my Freebirds and some sheer socks... Felt super comfy and low maintenance. Rent this dress!

Amazing Dress

I absolutely love this dress, however I had to order it twice to get the correct size. The dress runs small so size up. I love the way the dress hugs the curves. I received a lot of compliments for this dress :)

Runs small, cool pattern

This fit me a little tight in the shoulders and arms, but it wasn't unmanageable. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone with a wide chest - I'm a 32C and it fit well. Deep V that I covered strategically with the tie for work. Good day to night transition dress.

Really tight in the arms/shoulders

The dress looked amazing and well-made, but was too tight in the upper arms and shoulders. And very low-cut. I couldn't wear it.
