Beautiful color, a bit large
The top and waist of this dress were a little big. This would have been okay except the gathering at the waist looked unflattering. This would look really good on someone large-busted though, I think, except you can't really wear a bra with it because the back is low. The length in size 0 was perfect though (I'm 5'8") - just like on the model and longer than some of the other Tibi styles this year. I'd recommend going down a size, unless you are tall. The tulip color is super flattering. Unfortunately, this dress just looked a little boring and frumpy on me and maybe a bit like sleepwear. I guess it just needs some serious accessories.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cute, just not my color
The fit of these shorts is really cute. They are a little big in the waist, and the hips fit true to size (I guess, but my hips are at least 35"). I thought they still looked good worn a little lower than on the model. I just returned them because I'd already bought 3 new pairs of Tibi silk shorts this year and I figured that was enough. Also, the blush color isn't that flattering on me.

Gorgeous fabric, too large
First of all, the look and feel of the fabric was above and beyond what I expected. It was much prettier than the white honeycomb cotton/linen fabric that this style of short also came in (shopbop had a dress with side-ties in that fabric). I wanted these to work so badly but they were just too big. The 0 in these shorts fit larger than the 2 in the pinstripe buckled high-waist shorts from 2010. They honestly fit more like a 4 and were too large for me to wear them, because low-waisted they just looked dorky. Also because of the way they are constructed, they seemed like they would be very difficult to take in. If you want them to fit high waisted like on the model, go down at least one size.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

HUGE again
I swear, Tibi just keeps getting bigger and bigger every season. The 0 in this top was huge. The model must have a decent size rib cage and be wearing a 0, because I don't know how it would fit as shown. I'm 5'8" 32C (or 30D technically I guess) and this was just too large for me to wear even tucked into shorts. Also, the arm holes hung down way to low for me to wear a bra with it. This is really unfortunate because the nude color is perfect and seemed like it would go with pretty much anything. I was almost tempted to keeps it though and just work an oversize look, but that just wasn't what I was looking for.

HUGE
This top is huge. I looked like I was drowning in it, even with it tucked into high-waisted shorts. The neckline is super flattering though, so if you can go down a couple sizes, I would still recommend it. However, the blush detailing is a little awkward, I think, unless you figure out how to tie it together with a little bit of blush somewhere else in your outfit, like blush sandals or something. The silk is a bit shiny, delicate feeling for Tibi, making this top look a little dressier than I expected. Still though, it might look good worn out with some skinny jeans (blush j-brands possibly), if you have a straighter figure, which I don't.

So flattering!
I originally ordered these in tulip from Tibi, but I loved them so much that I got the blue as well when they went on sale on Shopbop. So far, I've been wearing them with a white silk tee from Tibi, or a Tory Burch voile button down. They'd also look great with a white CDC tank, but I can never get my hands on those in 0. They could potentially go with all different blues, whites, neutrals, even a green color to match the green in the shorts - tons of possibilities. To me, these are a much cuter, more comfortable alternative to a mini skirt. These are super flattering but they do fit a bit large in the waist. I just wear them lower waisted and they still look cute, but if you can go down a size, I strongly recommend it if you want them to fit like they do on the model. I just measured, and the waist on the 0 is 13.5 lying flat, so 27 inches around.

boring
This dress really just didn't do anything for me. Usually, the only way I can do monochromatic is if the fit of the dress is just really interesting or flattering. On me, this was neither. Personally found it to be a little tight in the bust and large in the waist. I personally ordered the dress, assuming it would be "waist-defining," but it wasn't. The elastic just hangs there, and the ties serve no actually function, so you can't actually tighten the dress, as I had hoped. If this dress had had some awesome crazy print on it, I might have kept it anyway, despite a mediocre fit. But it doesn't. It's just white, and hanging loose like a smock, it looks pretty boring.

MUCH cuter in real life
The fit of this top is really cute, though I actually can't wear this "rust" color. I personally think it looks best tucked into high-waisted shorts or skirts. For example, it looks far better tucked in to the istanbul shorts, rather than worn out like a paper bag as shown. Worn tucked into the high-waisted shorts, the high neck and wide shoulders really balance out and complement the cut of the shorts, creating an hourglass shape. It actually looks even more flattering than wearing the Tibi cami with the shorts, at least if you want to accentuate your waist.

So disappointed
I was so excited to order this dress because I think the style and print are gorgeous. However, it just did not fit me right at all. I thought this was odd, because I have a Milly dress of a very similar style from a few years back that fits just fine. This one seemed to be cut very straight, and large in the waist, almost as if a pregnant lady wore it and stretched it out. I tried belting it but there was just too much extra fabric. Meanwhile, it was still fitted through the hips. It also just seemed like the 0 either was cut for someone short (like 5'4") or to be worn lower on the shoulders. On the runway, the model is wearing it off-the-shoulder, lowering the dimensions of the dress proportionately. I found that while the dress fit better this way, it seemed to large in the bust and shoulders to stay up. I really think it is meant to be worn with the elastic off the shoulder, the collar folded up like on the Milly site, or down like on the runway, but not as shown here, just fyi.

Just okay
I've been giving Rag & Bone/JEAN a try lately, and it seems I am consistently disappointed. The fabric seemed subpar and the colors, drab. This dress looked the same on me as it does on the shopbop model and can be summed up in one word: dorky (I ordered it because it actually looked cute on the Saks model). It just seemed too big and baggy, especially in the waist, so I tried belting it but then it just seemed too conservative and preppy for me (like it does on Quin in Glee). I think maybe if I was a couple inches taller, (I'm 5'8") it would have been cute, just very casual. I would definitely recommend going down a size.
