I wanted to love this, I really did.
So in full disclosure, I purchased this dress from a different boutique with a 20% off coupon, not at shopbop. We've all grown to love rory beca for their silk, flattering yet whimsical pieces, & I was sure that this dress - with it's open back and beautiful electric blue colour would be no exception. The dress is pretty, with a beautifully vibrant color, don't get me wrong.. But there's something about the drawstring and the overlay that make it look cheap. I mean really cheap. It's also structured quite strangely - large on top, tight on the bottom. I kept trying it on, hoping that I'd warm up to it, but It ended up being returned.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

What A Shame
Unfortunately, this dress isn't as nicely designed as the photos would show. I believe another reviewer commented that the material is far too thin for such a pricey dress, and they were on the money. It's a great color, don't get me wrong.. It's just not up to par with michelle mason's usual quality of clothing.

Buy A Size Up
I wear a pretty standard size 8 in most shoes, but after reading the reviews I purchased these in a 39 - glad I did. The cloth part will definitely give but the actual platform of the shoe is 100% a size 8. For all the reviews who say that these shoes are not quality - honestly for 18$ I can't really complain, so far they've held up well & saved me form spending $50 for toms.

Must have for all seasons
I now own this dress in a few colors, but I must say this is my favorite hue. This dress is great for spring and summer in sunny california and absolutely priceless with how well it works with a bulky bib necklace and some ankle boots. I will say parker in general runs on the small side, so ladies size up and be safe. I'm 5'6 120 lbs and purchased this in a large & the length is perfect. Yes the sleeves are long but that's just a part of the design, and they really don't get in my way.
