Gorgeous
The fabric and construction of this dress are both of high quality and this dress is more beautiful in person. I find that A.L.C. runs a bit large and the style of this dress is meant to have extra fabric for a relaxed and flowy feel under the arms. I purchased the extra small and it still allowed room for this effect. I'm 5'2 and weigh 114.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

A Little Long
This romper would be great for someone with longer legs. I'm 5'2 so the shorts were quite long on me, even when I tried to pull the romper up higher on my waist. It would have been adorable if the inseam was a bit shorter or if my legs were longer. Sadly, I had to return it.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Not Green
I don't review many items, but in this case I want to save others the disappointment I felt when I opened my Shopbop box and saw that the color of this dress is nothing like it's pictured here. I guess I should have noticed that the color of the dress is called "ocean". In this case the name is referring to deep ocean blue. The blue is pretty but it's a bit dull and not at all what I was looking for; hence the two star rating.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Not a dress for women under 5-10
this dress is beautiful, but has way too much fabric at the top and bottom. I'm 5-2 and weigh 110 pounds, so I typically expect to have to shorten long dresses. However, this dress is exceptionally long in the torso as well as on the bottom. It's also quite loose in the waist. I would have to go to an expert tailor and pay $100 in alteration fees to re-make this dress in order for it to fit properly. The size feels more like a medium or a rtw small. Surprising, especially for a designer dress.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Saw for Myself
I agree with the previous review. I read it before purchasing but thought I'd give this a try anyway. I liked the idea of a winter white sweater and it was on sale. Though even at the sale price of $177 it is not worth it. The sweater is so thin and it doesn't even look like cashmere. There were threads coming out of where the elbow patch is sewn and the patches look a bit out of place on this sweater. Too bad because the cut and shape of the sweater is nice.
