Love the concept, top a little tight
I really love the concept of this dress -- the yellow layer adds some real interest and is a nice nod to color-blocking without being too overwhelming. The vertical black zip also breaks up the top nicely and looks great with a black jacket over it. Only drawbacks are that the top fits tighter than the bottom (I'm pretty small chested and bought the size M primarily for the skirt as I'm pear-shaped, but the top fits pretty tight, which surprised me). Also, I've played with various jacket options for work/evening and the only one of mine that seems to work is black leather -- a flat black looks odd with the skirt, and I didn't want to introduce another color to compete with the yellow. The top color is hard to wear if you're pale skinned, so I'd consider that as well.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Amazing color, looks great belted
The color of this dress is extraordinary - a really vibrant blue-green. It's a little shapeless without a belt, but it looks great with one on. I've worn it with a black belt and jacket for work and with a gold belt and heels for evening. For work, I belted it over the back drape so it looked more like a peplum. The cut is particularly good if you're pear shaped, but I think it would work on other shapes as well.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected
