Rated 5 out of 5Â by ladela A Standout
From the pictures online, this could be a bit of a risk. If you like A-line, form fitting, clean lines with a bold style, this is the dress. I had people from a homeless man on the street to several people at a wedding complimenting me on this dress. It's not too over the top, simplistic in the cut, but packs the punch in the vibrant color and modern lines. I know the material didn't feel too great, but I made a statement and stood out in all the pictures I took. I am very petite and athletically built and with a tan, this looks great on!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by quetscha Great design, quality so so
The color of this dress is even more vibrant in person and is very pretty, the classic design is also quite flattering.
However, once I tried it on I saw some quality issues. The most disappointing is that the pieced together look is printed on the fabric rather than actually sewn together. For me this took away from the overall appeal. Also, the lining material is very flimsy and kept getting caught in the zipper as I attempted to zip up and down.
The fit is pretty TTS, I usually wear between 4-6 in Anthro dresses, and this dress fits very well in a 4, but slightly uncomfortable in the torso when moving arms around because there is no stretch in the material. The 6 was more comfortable, but a bit loose in the bust and waist.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by teresita Fantastic vintage update
This dress reminds me of a lot of the 60s-era dresses I used to stalk in vintage shops, but with updated materials and sizing â€“ bonus! The boatneck and clean shape are really fantastic, very slimming on my shape. I just love asymmetric use of the graphic material.
I got a size 4 and it definitely hugs the hips, but the other reviewers were right, a size 6 would have been too big for my size 34 bust. It's long enough on my 5'7" frame to make it work appropriate with a little cardigan, but I think it will dress up nicely for a night out too.
The material does ride up when I sit down, making the lining visible sometimes. But my wide hips makes that happen with all my pencil skirts, so I think that's just me.
