Love this dress & the striped pattern
Love this dress. It's fresh and modern and a perfect spring dress for work. I'm usually between a 00 and 0 in Theory and I got the XS and it fits perfectly (form-grazing but not form-fitting on me). In the pictures online the stripes look like you almost can't see them - in real life they are still subtle but they add a nice modern contrast so it's not just a boring cream dress. I wore this with some light sea green and gold jewelry and got so many compliments.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Looks beautiful but baggy in the waist
The fabric is really nice and comfy, and it looks nice on. It fit great around my arms and chest, and made the booty look really good (without being too tight). My only issue with it was that it's super baggy around the waist. It doesn't look like the model pics above where it comes in at the waist...it kind of hangs straight until your hips. I am slender and shaped like a stick, so I like clothes to come in at the waist to give me the illusion of curves. ;-) Ultimately I decided it didn't work for me. As reference, I'm 5'2", 100lbs, 32-24-33.

Ugly in real life
I wanted to love this dress but I had way too many issues with it. First of all, don't bother if you aren't a tall skinny model type. I am 5'2", 100 lbs, slender and fit, and this dress (I ordered size 0) was NOT flattering in any way. First, it's way too long and hits at an awkward spot on the calf. You can't alter the length because the zipper runs the whole length. Second, I didn't have an issue with the arm width (fit fine) but they were cut way too long. Third, the fabric SUCKS. The fabric has little stretch but the seams don't, so instead of "holding you in", it's super tight along the seams and creates "fat bulges" between the seams. And...I am fit and do not have a lot of fat!! I love the design of this dress but the fabric needs to be changed as well as the zipper in the back to make it work for more women. Oh... and yes, it's see through (even with nude underthings). You can also see the extra folds of fabric where the seams are. Ugly!!!

Shoulder pads are huge and awkward
The structured shoulders are HUGE! I couldn't take it. Didn't sit right on me and made me look like I was wearing my mom's dress from the 1980's.

Love this dress!
I love this dress! It's really cute, appropriate for work (and looks good under a cropped blazer) and has a nice cut. I tried it on with nude under-things and it was not see through (although probably would be with other colors as the perforated sections are covered with fabric that is quite thin). I do like the rayon-blend fabric as it's very comfortable, however, I worry that the fabric will shrink or show wear before it's time... I've had issues with pilling with this fabric. For this price they could've made the fabric sturdier or used a different type of cotton blend to mix comfort and style.

Beautiful but tricky color; cut big
I loved this dress when it appeared on Shopbop and thought it would be the perfect spring dress for work. When it arrived, I found the color to be very true to the picture on the screen (what I'd call "happy mustard yellow"). Unfortunately it just didn't work with my skin tone (I'm Chinese), so I am returning. The sizing was also slightly larger than I was expecting. I own several DVF dresses and a 0 is usually a perfect fit - however, I found the 0 to be baggy. I would need to take in 2-inches in the chest, waist and torso area in order to get a form-grazing sheath dress look (i.e., to be structured but not a tight fit). I knocked off a star for the weird fit.

Way too big and boxy cut
I expected this tee to be oversized but it is WAY too big. I am 5'2", 105 lbs and typically an XS. I would recommend going down AT LEAST one size to get that "cute oversized boyfriend tee" look - otherwise you will look like you are swimming in fabric!

WAY HUGE
This is just a fit review because I returned it. I ordered the S and it was way bigger than expected. On the model it looks like the V-neck goes down to mid-chest and the white band that defines the waist hits just below the chest. I am 5'2" and the V-neck went down to just one inch above my belly button!!! The white band hit me right at the belly button. The outfit is very, very cute and I considered trying to get it altered, but it's complicated with the lacy detailing on the straps and I would've had to ask them to remove 4-5" off each strap. This was definitely meant for someone taller or with a longer torso!

Casual summer top with cute detailing
I got this in the black and I really like it. I am typically an XS in other brands and the cut is slightly loose but in a cute and flattering way. It skims away from the body. If you prefer a tighter fit you may want to size down, but I personally like the looser fit (trying to lose 5 lbs right now haha). The fabric is light but I don't find it flimsy like another reviewer said. It is a good summer weight fabric. The way the lace is cut in the back is really flattering to your shoulders and back! I wore these with white linen shorts and strappy sandals. I didn't feel like wearing my strapless bra that day so I wore a hot pink one and it was actually really cute with the hot pink straps showing in the back!

Gorgeous dress
This is an absolutely gorgeous dress. My boyfriend's jaw dropped when he first saw me in it, and I turn heads (both guys AND girls!) when I walk by. Trust me, I am not one of those people that typically gets that response - the dress is really that beautiful. So much better looking on than in the picture online. I really like the hi/lo cut. It's short and sexy in front, but I don't feel as if I am showing too much because it is long in the back. I am 32B and 24" waist, 102 lbs, and the dress fits perfectly. It may not work for larger busts because the buttons start popping if I wear a padded bra. I am 5'2" and the back of the dress comes down to my ankles and the front hits mid-thigh. It would be a little too short for me personally if it were that short all the way around, but as a hi/lo cut, it's perfect.
