perfect lace dress
I thought about this dress for months...but hesitated because it looked so short in photos. It's barely age appropriate for me (north of 40s) but for anyone younger, it's a (big) step up from a bodycon dress - flirty and sexy and a whole lot more class than a skin tight mini. I'm 5'6" and the length is mid-thigh. Medium fit like a 6 (I have broad shoulders, 36C, large waist and narrow hips. I had room in the hips, not the waist (I'm a true 27 waist, 34 in hips).The white is much more flattering than the red on fair skin.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

very cute skirt, fabric a bit too dressy
I wanted an everyday white summer skirt. The flower cut-outs are adorable, but this is a poly-crepe and too dressy for my needs. I ordered small and medium and stayed with the small, usually a size 4/27 and the small "just" fits. I have narrow hips and a wider waist, this is snug (but very slimming) in a small. I would have needed a medium if I had larger hips. Returning sadly because of the fabric (and it seem to wrinkle easily).

great fabric and detail
Rebecca Minkoff became my go-to brand last year because of the consistency in fit and the great fabrics and design, classic with flair. This is a perfect "basic black summer dress" - covers enough for me to wear to my office and can dress up or down with footwear, really versatile. The fabric is light and cool, fully lined with the best crochet and embroidery I've seen this year (nice and thick but pliable). Worth the price (on sale).

perfect day to night sandal
I bought the tan and it is beautiful. Soft, smooth leather, a comfy padded footbed, nice height heel (walked around NYC for the evening)...only complaint is that within minutes, I had chafing from one of the buckles near the ankle. There is a leather protective "flap" for the top on, but not for the lower two which have elastic...something was just scraping away. I loosened the buckle as much as possible and that seemed to solve the issue, but I would have liked a leather cover where buckle and skin meet. 5 stars otherwise...

frumpy without a belt
I'm a 6 in a dress and the small was a great length but too tight for the relaxed style I wanted (it was bodycon, I wanted boho/festival). I kept the medium but the length is more appropriate for a wedding, nearly to my knees. I belted it and it hits just below mid-thigh. On sale it was a great purchase, not worth full price. It is versatile. I wore it with ankle boots but heels looked nice too. For Love or Lemons San Marcos is much nicer lace.

sporty daytime leather
Unlike the other reviewer, I found the skirt to be of solid quality, not delicate in any way (the leather is heavier weight than a fine buttery glove). I have worn it numerous times to work this summer - the elastic waist makes it so comfortable. I have worn it with flats, but think it would dress up well with heels. It is fairly fitted but unlike so many tight minis that you can't move in, the design is like track shorts so you can walk, sit and bend. I am a size 4/27 and the small was too tight. Got the medium and it is perfect.

Beautiful fabric, long and tight sleeves
I keep trying this dress on hoping the sleeves will magically fit me better. They are too tight from about the bicep to the wrist, but fit ideally through the shoulders and upper arms. I have an athletic build but 5'6" 130lbs, I am not exactly large and the sleeve just binds uncomfortably on my forearm muscle. The other strange thing is that the wrists are huge, so the "too long sleeves" don't stay above the wrist (designed to puff I'd guess). I LOVE the fabric, and the body of the dress is a wonderful fit, not tight and not shapeless (just skims across the bum to show shape). But I think it's going back. Nicest lace fabric I've tried though...

a hit!
I own a closet-full of Clover Canyon, almost all are neoprene. This is a fabulous, fluid fabric in a nice length. I wore without a bra. Ordered a small (CC runs large in my opinion), I am a size 6 dress, 36C and size 4 on the bottom and the small fits TTS like a contemporary 6. It's super cute!

I LOVE THIS (but VERY small)
The small would fit a size 0-2. Waiting for the medium to be returned (and I wear a 4/27 in a skirt). The skirt is SO cute in person. Very dark navy plaid in a neoprene fabric but not form-fitting.

great summer dress
Super cute, very summery...feels crisp and Parisian with the box pleated front adding nice detail. Wide straps make it more suitable for more occasions (and less youthful) than spaghetti straps would. Length is good (not too short, hits me a few inches above the knee, I'm 5'6"). Bust fit (just) my 36C, hips not forgiving if you are larger on the bottom (I'm a 27 jeans)...fits me perfectly.
