Pretty dress...
I bought this dress to wear during the hot Chicago summer. I love the look of it; the studs are especially unique and the silhouette of the dress is cute. For some reason though, I don't find myself reaching for it in my closet. I think that's probably because although it looks like a summery maxi dress, the fabric is actually quite heavy. The dress itself weighs a lot more than any of my breezy maxi dresses. Hopefully I will wear this more when the weather cools down to the 70s, but for now it's just too uncomfortable.

Cute but...
I really like the fit, color, style, and length of this dress, but I have a few problems with it. The first problem is that although the dress is cotton, it wrinkles a TON. I wore it for two hours and looked like a mess. That being said, the second problem is that because of the satin trim, it's dry clean only. So it's a little silly to have a cotton sundress that you can't just "zhush" up in the wash. My final complaint is that the buttons are not lined on the inside, so you feel the metal against your skin and it's cold! (Or even hot if you are spending time outdoors) I just think that MJ should be a little more thoughtful with those kinds of details. That being said, it does fit very well. I think I'll probably end up wearing it around the house...

Very flattering
I love this dress and I love Parker. I usually don't like dresses that cinch at the waist because I am short (5'3) but this one was great. It is super flattering, and I love the vibrant print. It definitely runs long, but I am used to hemming my dresses anyways. I have a small baby bump and it totally hides it...which is an added bonus! Highly recommend.

great gloves!
I ordered these in pink and absolutely love them! The color is very bright and really pops. They are the perfect antidote to a dull winter day.
