Wanted to love it....
I really, REALLY wanted this dress. When it arrived, I thought the color was phenomenal, the weight of the dress was perfect for winter, but the "sculpted" aspect of the shoulders is a REALLY tough look to pull off. It is difficult to tell on the model, but because the skirt is more streamlined, it just looks like the top wasn't well made, because not only are the shoulders huge, but there is a TON of extra, bulky fabric around your waist, back and armpits. Very, very strange fit. Almost kept it for the color alone, but when I tried it on for my husband and he burst out laughing, I knew it had to go back.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cute dress
I had been waiting for this dress to come back in stock in the light blue, and jumped on it when it finally did. It arrived today and I LOVE IT...great heavier material, perfect for fall, winter or spring (way too hot and heavy for summer), look great with heels, sandals or boots, and is very flattering (a tad tight in the arms, I thought, but otherwise true to size). My only issue are the slits on the side...I bought this dress thinking it would be great for work, but I just don't think the slits are appropriate. I wish they were closed up maybe an inch more--you can't tell in the pictures so much, but depending on how you are moving, since the fabric is stiffer, I think it just shows a little too much. But I wouldn't hesitate to wear it for anything else...i'm taking the day to decide whether or not it will go back.

A great go-to dress
Love this dress. It's just a little more interesting than your average LBD, but is still as dependable and easy to wear. I think it can be worn for a multitude of occasions...I bought it for my sister's engagement party that starts out with a cocktail party at a country club with an older crowd, and then ends at a club in the city with a decidedly younger crowd...I like that this dress can be appropriate for either venue, given the long sleeves and not obscene length, but then the sheer sleeves and top make it a little more fun. I did order a size up from my other DVF dresses, because it felt a little tight in the bust and the hips--I think the cut of this dress is just a little narrower than other DVF silhouettes.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected
