It's a lot of dress

I ordered this dress when it was a new arrival. First, I thought it was white, but it's more of a chalky gray color. Second, it's a lot of material in the skirt. It was very overwhelming on my frame, and I'm 5'6" and not super petite. This may work on someone really tall and thin, but not on me

Not the original reviewer, but it was just sent to me without a belt. I was sent an email saying the previous customer returned it without the belt.

The belt was missing.

Very high quality and feels and looks like a dress of this price but I didn't end up wearing it. It didn't arrive with the belt and I didn't have a belt that would work with it. I worried that my belts would leave a stain on the beautiful fabric. Overall, disappointed.

Great Spring dress

Wore this for work in NYC on a hot day. I'm between 8-10 and wore the size 40, fit well. Full long skirt with front pockets is very comfortable and the fitted top balances it out. Light gray color was neutral and nice. Will rent again.

In theory, a pretty dress, but probably best left for tall, slender women.

Eh. This is pretty on a tall, slender model. Not on an average-curvy, 5'5" woman like me.

beautiful dress, fit a bit off

The waist was a bit lower then where my waist is, so the top bloused a bit. this would have been fine but then the top was a bit big on me and bunched a bit. In general the dress is beautiful - the quality excellent and the style classic. I would wear it again.

Just ok

Cute concept.... It's made of a stiff material. For some reason I thought it would have more of a flow. I recommend it for someone considerably tall as the dress is relatively long. The top of the dress is more fitted but the bottom part is a lot fuller. The dress is also a really light grayish/ blue color instead of being white as the picture suggests.

Expensive Feeling Dress- Tricky to Wear but Worth the Challenge.

The dress was longer in person and it was not as white as the photos make it seem. I enjoyed this dress a lot and the material felt very expensive. With a belt, a great shoe, and cool statement earrings this dress can be everything. Just make sure you don’t get it wet because it becomes totally see through. I found out the hard way when I was caught in the rain :)

Runs small, a lot of dress.

Did not wear this - color was a blah grey, was too small and skirt was a little too full for everyday wear/work.

Cute, but not for the chesty gal

LOVED the dress, but the dress pulled at the chest when I buttoned it. I wore a white bodysuit underneath and it worked beautifully! The material is stiff but in a structured way. It does wrinkle easily. I am tall, so I loved how it was t-length on me. The color is more of a light bluish gray rather than the stark white it looks like in the photo. I recommend!

Loved the dress, wish it came in another color

Dress came very wrinkled - had to take it to be pressed before wearing; there are some slight water stains around the waste but not noticeable unless you look hard; the color in the picture looked more off-white, but the actual dress is more ash/pale grey. Loved the dress - wore to work and out afterwards.

Perfect for tall girls!

I wore this to go wedding dress shopping and it was great to take on and off via buttons up the front without messing up my makeup. I loved it--felt elegant and chic in a simple dress. It is a big full skirt though so probably better for taller/curvier women.

Beautiful dress that is sized for someone roughly 6'4"

I am really torn about this one - I like the dress in a lot of ways but it is simply mis-sized. I can’t imagine a person this dress would fit properly. I’m 5’6” and it is down to my ankles - it should be 6-12 inches shorter no matter who is wearing it. On a short girl it would be like a formal gown that touches the floor when you wear heels. I see people here who are six feet tall saying it’s great for tall girls, but even on them it would look better at least 6 jnches shorter. 36 was the smallest size and it was enormous on me everywhere, not just in length. I have a very long torso, but the torso was way too long - the waist was probably 2 inches lower than my natural waist. The flimsy fabric belt is about 10 feet long, and wasn't substantial enough to help keep the dress positioned on my waist. I don’t mind the voluminous skirt, but the top is intended to be fitted and it was too long, and too wide. The style and details of the dress are cute, the fabric was lighter than I expected which was nice, and as others have noted it is very gray but I thought it was a pleasant enough color. The deep front pockets look stylish, and are useful for sticking a phone or other items in but they are also not remotely in the right place to put your hands in - you can use them to hook your thumbs, but it looks a bit like you are wearing a straightjacket if you put your hands into the pockets. Overall the dress is disappointing because the design, quality of the material, and cut is great, but the fit is so inappropriate to any standard of clothes sizing. The designer should call this a Long and simply not carry an R or Petite version of the dress - after all, many designers make only R length so there isn't really anything wrong with carrying only an L. But is simply isn't cut to fit a person who isn't extremely tall, and in fact would be totally unwearable for anyone of average or shorter height.

Cargo material

Cute dress, runs big and long. Not the look I thought it would be; maybe I'll try smaller.

Cool dress, oddly cut, prone to wrinkles.

I wanted to love this dress. The color is fantastic (it's more like a pale slate in person than a true cream or white) and it has such interesting features like the tabs on the shoulders and the extra long tie. It was just far too small across the bust. My breasts were squished and there was a gap in the buttons (definitely wear something underneath). My breasts are neither small nor large, they're really proportional to the rest of my body, so having something cut too small across the chest is unusual for me. Would be perfect for someone with a pear shape though. Needed ironing, and rewrinkled a little afterward, but that wasn't such a big deal.
