Free People x CP Shades
This dress is really expensive, and I wasn't about to pay for how much it was but I decided to treat myself as the holidays were approaching and let me just say that I'm glad I bought this dress. I did want it in a medium but they were sold out of it so I opted for the small. The small fits wonderfully on me, and it's not too short at all. The slits are pretty high up, but it's not terrible if I were to wear tights.
ink is not black
I ordered this in the 'Ink' colour which I thought was going to be black... but it's actually a deep navy. Otherwise it is exactly as I was expecting. I ordered an XS and it is an oversized fit but I love it The side slits are high as other reviewers have noted but I don't think it is too short to wear as a dress especially with tights underneath. I just wish this came in a true black! !
Not as pictured but nice
The dress I got was not the same as those in the pictures. Mine has much longer sleeves and slits on the side that make it unwearable as a dress unless you want your underwear seen. I wear it with leggings. The color is more orange than red but the fabric is nice and it drapes nicely over the body. REALLY wish it was more of the shirt dress in the pic and not just a long shirt but I'm keeping it.
Pretty but overpriced
It is a very pretty dress but a little over priced. The pockets are a bit bulky and if you have hips, it pops out a little more at the pocket area making my hips look wider. I am going to mull it over for the week if I am going to keep it.
not as pictured
the dress i received was not at all as pictured- it had slits on the sides and would have to be worn with something on the bottom. because of the slits it feels more like a top, than a dress. not sure why the pictured item looks so different from the real one... had to return
Not as striking in person
I absolutely love all of my Free People items that I have previously purchased. However, I was disappointed when I received the shirtdress. The color is more of a burnt orange than red. I was hoping to wear this for the Holidays. It looked much more
