Rated 4 out of 5 by BerkeleyJo Fun summer dress
I love the funky retro vibe of this dress. It reminds me a bit of summers in the sixties (whoops, I'm revealing my age!). It's loose fitting (might want to size down) and easy peasy to wear -- but still fun and stylish.

This is an exquisite dress. The shantung silk is the perfect weight, not too heavy, yet not so light that it doesn't hold it's shape all day, minimal creasing! The colours are stunning, and the design is classy. A special occasion dress for now, but will wear for smart work days too. I can be either a 2 or a 4 in dresses. The 2 fits me perfectly. A true investment piece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by foolishgoose Order down a size
This dress has a gorgeous fabric and the length/height proportions seem fine, even for my 5' 4" height (I worried the dress would be down to my shins when I saw it on the model). However, the sizing seems off by a size. I normally buy a 00 or petite 00 in pants from J.Crew, which is the size I bought for the dress and this dress is extremely baggy, and not in a stylish way. I had hoped it would fit more like it did on the model, but it seemed to fit more like the picture on the mannequin, or worse. Honestly, I have not experienced such a discrepancy in fit in quite some time. I bought the dress final sale, but I do believe that my go-to tailor can probably make it more flattering, even with the stripes down the side, so not all is lost.
I also want to note that the fabric has less of a sheen than in the picture. In life, the blues are more vivid and the sheen is less obvious under most lighting--it is still beautiful fabric and a beautiful design, but different than the picture.

You know when you order online - and you are never sure if you are going to be disappointed or pleased with your purchase? well - this dress exceeded all my expectations!! I took notice of comments on sizing and phoned for the dimensions. I am usually a size 6 but ordered a size 4 - this was the right decision (you know the final sale!!). The fabric is a wonderful quality as is the construction. It is a shift dress and hangs straight - although I decided to get the waist taken in a bit - just a personal preference but OK as is. As I live in Florida I can get extended wear from the dress.
