Actually- the dress fit great!
I am writing this review because some of the other reviews of this dress are quite poor. I am 5'7", weigh about 125 lbs and wear a D cup. I'm typically a size 2 or 4. I LOVED this dress online but then didn't order it because of the negative reviews, not to mention I had no idea what size I'd be. I ended up seeing it at Barney's and trying it on- and the XS fit perfectly. I had a bandeau bra on, which probably helped with the tight-chest issue that some other reviewers have noted. If you are large-breasted then your normal bra probably won't work- you'll need something that minimizes your bust (which doesn't sound all that great but this dress is meant to be loose and flowy, not va-va-voom, IMO). The dress is long but I don't think I'll have to have it hemmed as long as I wear heels. It looks quite chic with heels on- more like a striped gown than a maxi. I love it and I can't wait to wear it.

Okay
This is a cute dress but be aware of your body type when ordering. It made my legs look short and stumpy. Since my waist is my smallest part and this dress is very baggy around the waist, it wasn't flattering at all. Some dresses with this type of fit have looked good on me- this just wasn't one of them. It's not the fault of the dress, though. The colors are really cute and it seems well made, which is why I'm giving it 4 stars. Also be aware that the armpits are pretty low- can make a bra challenging.

Cheap and Cute but Run BIG
These shorts are worth the buy. The tie that comes with the shorts is cute and the fray/fringe is great and looks authentic. BUT- as other reviewers have noted, these shorts run LARGE. I am usually a 26 or 27. I noticed the model was wearing a 26 (I think? Can't remember exactly.) So I thought- well no way am I ordering a size smaller than the model. I should have. The 26 fits but the 25 would have fit way better. I'm just too lazy to send them back. Hopefully I can wash and dry them and shrink them a little, but ladies, don't be afraid to order a size or two down.

LOVE IT
I went back and forth about 50 times on keeping this dress. It's pretty casual so I wasn't sure how much use I would get out of it- not quite nice enough to wear out at night. BUT- I kept it, and the first day I wore it I got about a thousand compliments on it. I ended up wearing it all day and out to dinner and then just put it on again the next morning to go to brunch. So easy and so cute. A great purchase and very glad I kept it. ******PS- The dress looked much cuter on me when I wore a "flattening" strapless bra. With a normal bra the dress made me look pretty top-heavy (as I'm pretty busty). But once I switched bras the dress made me look quite slender.

You get what you pay for
I ordered these shoes on sale. They are cute and... that's it. I ordered a size 9 even though I am usually a 9.5 and they are now too big- after wearing them only one time. They stretched out terribly. Also, the heels don't seem to be well constructed because they are doing that "wobble" thing, like the heel isn't totally connected to the shoe. They are also really, really tall- which is great- but only if the shoe is of good quality. In the case of these shoes it just makes them really hard to wear.

Beautiful
This dress is stunning. I am planning to wear it to a wedding this weekend with a turq necklace. The silk is gorgeous and the material flows beautifully. The belted waist is very flattering. Oh and I weigh 118 and 5'7" and I ordered the XS- it's great.

No thanks
I ordered this dress and despite not liking it I actually ended up keeping it. That was a mistake. Something about the material and where the waist hits just isn't right. The material isn't flowy enough- it's almost like sweatshirt material? It makes me looks like I have huge hips when I really don't have big hips at all. And the waist hits about an inch or two too high. It's awkward. Good idea, poor execution. BUT, for the price, it could work as an easy beach dress.

Amazing!
All I can say about this dress is I've worn it so much that I get excited to do something with a random group of people that hasn't already seen me wear it multiple times, just so I can wear it again. SO flattering, SO unique. Just buy it.

very versatile, very pretty.
I bought this top in the cream color. I have worn it a couple times- once to work tucked into a pencil skirt, once on a happy hour/dinner date with skinny jeans and wedges, and another time to a charity meeting with jeans and flats. I got compliments on it each time. The cream color looks great with my fave pair of turquoise earrings. It's VERY blouse-y; the dolman sleeves obviously don't give much definition. But the waist is fitted enough to give it some shape. Overall, love it. I think it's a great buy for late summer/fall and I'm looking forward to wearing it in a month or so with boots or leopard flats.

Gift
A bunch of girls gave this set (as pictured, but we had to order each item seperately) to a bride on her bachelorette. It is precious and she loved it. Classic and pretty and doesn't break the bank.
