Style: 25967282 Color Code:
Long-sleeved knit swing mini dress with a cute baby doll fit. Low scoop back. Comfortable, easy moving fabric that is made for everyday wear.
One of nine exclusive, in-house labels. Effortless seaside styles.
The material in the jewel blue color is ribbed and heavy. Living in AZ, I cannot and will not wear pieces made with weighty fabric in 105 degree weather. The color is bright and beautiful and the fit is loose and swingy. The low scoop back makes it fun and flirty, but this one is going back.
Not what I had hoped for
I was excited for this dress, but the material doesn't look as nice in person and it fits in the shoulders a little oddly. I ordered my usual size of XS (Im 5'4 and 125lbs), and it was a little tight in the shoulder area which made it fall weird in that area. It is also very sheer so I'm not sure what I would have worn underneath it (I got it in Lilac). It's a bit too short as well - would have had to wear leggings with it probably if I had kept it.
Great all around everything dress
I love this dress! Mine is navy and it's too bad that navy is no longer available. I actually like wearing it backwards with the lower scoop in the front rather than the back. I pair it with a Free People slip and wear it everywhere. It's super comfy and fun! I'm going to order another one soon.
love in some ways
I ordered this dress in the lilac and I love it!! However, do not size up at all. I am usually torn between small and medium when it comes to swing tees/dresses but it is much longer than expected and it definitely is too big, there is a lot of extra fabric when i wear it. I love the scoop and it is a great material though. Def not returning but would order a small next time.
Groundhog Day Dress
If I had to relive the same day over and over again, as a cross dressing Bill Murray, this is the dress I would choose to spend each and every day in. It's the perfect outdoor weight for a Midwestern fall, and the perfect indoor weight for winter when the heater's are cranked. I could get away with wearing a padded bra even despite the scoop, which is (by the way) extremely flattering. Also, one of the reviewers mentioned the unfinished sleeves: this isn't cutting corners, it's by design- I've found the fabric has begun to roll in on itself adding to the overall charm and character of this piece. A+, buy the dress in your normal FP size, and watch out for that last step... it's a doozy.
Great casual dress
I got it in the dark sienna color and it looks exactly as in the picture. I bought a size small but could have gone one size down. I kept it anyway because FP's dresses tend to shrink a bit after the first wash and it still looks good on me. I'm 5'3 and the length is about right.
I just love love this dress! I was a little wary about ordering online after reading the reviews, but I just love it. I am a little over 5'2'' (so if you're tall maybe this isn't for you) but it hits me a few inches above the knee which is a perfect length for a flowy dress like this. I have a muscular build and this dress just works well. I am wearing it a little differently than the model is...I tried it on backwards by accident and then tried it on the right way but it just looks so much better backwards. Weird, I know, but if you bought this seriously try it backwards. I gave it 4 stars because the color i ordered looked much more brown in person so I have to exchange it. Other than that, pair with a chunky necklace and booties and you're good to go! Definitely don't size up...in the past I've been a medium in FP a lot (I wear a 4 in juniors and a S/Xs most places) but the S fit perfectly.
FP Beach is my favorite collection, but this dress was a disappointment entirely. I ordered my standard SMALL, which I do not consider myself, but I've gotten used to the sizing. I should have ordered an XS, but think that would have been too big too. Way too baggy. There are no seams along the wrists or dress hem, which seems like the fabric would come unraveled quickly. Quality is cheap for the price. Just an overall bummer. I am definitely returning. :( so sad.
