Perfect
I put these on as soon as they arrived and they are so comfortable. They're also way cool - classic yet punk. I plan on wearing these with my graphic preppy knits.

Love it
I ordered an M because it was the only left (on sale). I am 5'3", 125lbs, short-waisted with an hourglass build. The color is stunningly vibrant (exactly as pictured - and I'm waiting for the day when Parker comes out with its faux wrap dress in the same color), and the length (an inch or two above the knee) is perfect. Its a very comfortable dress (love the elastic waistband). Despite the eye-catching color and length, this dress has a refined quality and the bell sleeves (which are a little cumbersome, so I'd be extra vigilant during meals) lend a boho vibe to it.

Simple and Perfect
I'm 5'3", 125lbs, short-waisted with an hourglass figure. I ordered the dress in a large because it was the only one left, and it fit perfectly. The only issue was I had to safety pin the neckline in order to prevent me from exposing myself, but I am a 32E so that is due to no fault of the dress (in addition to the fact that I ordered a large) and an issue I encounter regularly. The material is light silk crepe - I didn't find it cheap at all. It insulates heat as well as allows it breath very well - tried and tested in SF's famously finicky weather. Very seasonally versatile length - I wear it regularly with my stacked heel knee boots and tried it on with sandals and ballet flats; and the dress looked great in both scenarios. I purchased it in red, but if this guy comes out in green I'm picking it up too!
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Edgy Twist on a Classic
PROS - Excellent craftsmanship, plenty of room with three large compartments (perfect day bag), inconspicuous yet unique and elegant (check out the feet!). Beautiful color (granite) - neutral and subtle. CONS - There is not one single zip closure on the bag. There's an inner zippered pocket however. Then again, the three compartments are well concealed in the design. Its a little bigger than I expected (despite the scale composite provided above:), the hardware adds a bit of weight and the strap is a little narrow, so that could potentially cause shoulder problems. At the end of the day though, I still love this bag.
