Denim Shiftdress

Denim Shiftdress is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dress I love this dress, it works dressed up or down. I can't wait to wear it in the winter with tights and boots. It's a little bit short, but I'm 5'10''.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile dress This dress looks exactly like it does in the picture. I'm 5'1 and 110 pounds. I ordered an extra small. The dress comes a few inches above my knees and isn't so big that I drown in it. I can wear it with a fitted jacket, a belt, a statement necklace or earrings, or nothing at all and it looks fantastic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I feel like a doll I love this dress. When I first put it on, I thought it was a little boxy because of the pockets on the hips, but since it's denim it stretched out a little and now it looks great. It runs a little big, I ordered a size down and it fits perfectly. However, I've only washed it once and there's already a little wear. Love the dress though, although it has a very naive vibe if that's not what you're looking for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and classic twist for everyday,,with a few suggestions I was in search for a simple denim shift dress for quite some time. Once I found this at, I was placed on waiting list and it was suppose to arrive by July but came a lot sooner than expected. I like the fit of the dress, I weigh 110lbs 5'3" and xs fits almost perfectly. I would change 3 things about this dress if I could: 1. Wish the neckline was slightly lower..if it showed more collar bone, it would be more flattering. 2. The invisible (yet VERY noticeable) pocket placement is awkward. It sticks out too much and because of the wide pocket inner layer, it gets twisted and pulls up way too much as I walk around in this dress. The lining should be changed to something more silkier, so it won't tug on the actual dress as much. 3. Zipper at the back doesn't go all the way down/or at least 1/3 way. It would be also interesting to see a similar dress with a visible zipper. but for now, I am satisfied with the dress until I find something better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs a bit small! I was really hoping for this dress to hang loosely off of my body, but it's definitely more of a straight-up-and-down shift than a looser, a-line shift. It's also very short. This is probably not a problem for most, but on my 6' frame, I need to be careful about how I bend down to get things. Overall though, the dress is great and I like the smaller fit a lot more than I'd initially thought; it makes it better for winter layering without looking bulky. Will be fantastic for spring and summer!
