Rated 3 out of 5Â by tinaJ Cute but not as expected
I ordered an XS rather than my usual SM based on reviews and I'm glad I did. The hips of the dress are sewn in an A-line shape, so it doesn't really form to the hips (no way to avoid this as this is the pattern of the garment). Creates extra room from the waist down and is a bit stiff in shape.
I thought it was going to be heavy with intricate stitching based on prior reading, but it is actually very light and thin with a material that more resembles embroidery than true embroidery. Additionally, the back of the skirt's pattern doesn't line up which you can kind of see on the model, but it is more noticeable in person especially if it is the burgundy stripe that is not aligned like mine.
It's cute enough and I'll likely keep it, but I wouldn't have paid full price and even on sale had i tried it on in person I don't think I would have been inspired enough to buy it.

So in love with this gorgeous embroidered piece. There a mixed reviews regarding this dress, however I tried on an xs and it fit perfectly. I agree it runs extremely large, since I usually wear a medium in fp. For reference, I am 5'8, 36B and 135 lbs.

A truly beautiful shift dress with intricate embroidery. The embroidery gives it a heavy texture, so if you're petite and lean, this dress will look beautiful. Not for curvy body shapes. I ordered a small and it fits me perfectly. The colours are more muted than in the photograph, but they come out beautifully in low light spaces. Great for an evening out. Will be a regular in my wardrobe!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by angeleste LOVE the dress-not the size
I am 5'7" thin straight through the body (narrow hips) and wear 36C. i bought the small and its very big, large gaping armholes, baggy (not shift like, i mean BAGGY), but not too short. i'm having the dress tailored because it IS STILL a great dress. High and interesting neckline, beautiful color and design, and the back is a conversation piece all its own. i would rather buy a great designed dress and have it fitted for me than settle for a dress i'm not especially in love with! I love this dress!

Â by discosyl its ok
*note to self* shift dresses are not for vertically challenged / curvy people like myself, having said that I wasnt disapointed the colour is slightly lighter than on the model, the size runs large/bigger I didnt like it on myself at first it looked boxy on me not flatering at all but after a few alterations ( I didnt want to send it back)
1. shortened length of bodice
2. and made it a bit more fitted for my body type
i now love it and have had a lot of compliments, I wear this now as a tunic.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Schappy Fit just didn't work
I couldn't wait to get this dress after seeing it on the site and on a fashion blog but was disappointed when I finally received it.
I ordered the XS after reading the reviews (i'm 5ft 3in & 115 pounds) but even that was too big in the end. The top half wasn't so bad except it is cut so that you can see a lot of your bra at the arm holes so you need to pick a special bra for this one.
However, my main issue was with the mid section which was just huge. It was really unflattering as there was so much material that it just made me look big.
I loved the colours and the length but unfortunately this one is being returned.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MaryMou LOVE THIS NOW THAT I GOT THE RIGHT SIZE
I am 5'8" and about 130 and had to order an Extra Small. This dress is everything that I hoped for, it is long enough for someone that is no longer in her 20. I looks rich and will look great for 3 seasons of I layer a turtleneck in the winter.

This dress is so intricate in it's embroidery details. You must know that it is a shift and therefore has less of a shape to it. It does run a little big because of this and doesn't look as form fitting on as it does on the model.
