I really wanted to love this
This dress ran TTS, and I ordered two sizes just in case my first guess was off (it wasn't). The dress has an asymmetrically ruched side which, as a design element, could be really cool; but instead it just resulted in the pattern on the skirt being wonky despite working with it, adjustments, and a belt...there was just no saving it. Had the drape of the pattern been taken fully into account when the ruching was designed, this would have been a winner, despite the sheerness of the skirt (which necessitates a full-length slip with a slit unless this is worn as a swim coverup). Truly unfortunate since the pattern is so unique, the fit of the top is excellent, and the price on sale is right.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Amazingly versatile
This is the first review I've been inspired to write, despite liking many items -- and successfully incorporating them into my wardrobe -- that I've purchased from shopbop. This is THE perfect glam sweatshirt -- just right for dressing up or down -- and the sequins being a slightly bronzy color takes the shine factor down a notch. I'm wearing it today styled similar to last photo with the white shirt (note to self: purchase ruffled button-down), rolled black skinnies, a distressed black belt, and heels. I can see it working equally well with nearly any color or style of pant, layered over another top or on its own, with sleeves rolled or left down. The material is the perfect weight for a flattering drape, so often a problem in more stiff sequin tops. Though a size smaller would have fit, the proper fit for this item is slouchy, so I'd suggest ordering your usual size. Bonus: I've received tons of compliments on this top.
