Gallerist Dress

Gallerist Dress is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great staple piece I purchased this dress during a 20% markdown event, so it ended up being a great deal. The dress is incredibly comfortable and the fabric is a good weight. It's stretchy but still structured. I wear the dress mostly to work but I can also see myself wearing it other places. For reference, I am about 5'6'', 110lbs, borderline flat chested, and the XS fit perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy dress for work I love, love, love my new dress. The length and fit are perfect for work (I'm a teacher, so that's tough to find). It's so comfortable and easy to wear all day. Plus it can easily convert to a night look if I head somewhere straight from school. It's nice to not look like a librarian at happy hour by just changing my shoes. Highly recommend :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! play and everything in between This dress is every woman's answer to the perfect multipurpose little black dress. I wore this dress to a work meeting, then picked up my children from school, headed to the playground and out to dinner afterwards. The dress stayed looking fresh and sharp the entire time! The fabric is thick enough to stay put when picking up children, in windy conditions and holds it shape throughout the day. This will be one of those seasonless and timeless pieces I will come back to again and again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice essential black dress I decided to try on this dress in the store and i was pleasantly surprised by the fit. I'm usually XXS and ended up purchasing this size but i would recommend going up a size since it runs a little small. I like that it's machine washable which makes the price worth it to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit and Sturdy Material I'm a definite fan of the flattering waistline and thick material. For petite ladies, it's the perfect length - hits slightly above the knee. I'm 5'2. Can't wait to wear this all fall and winter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and a new staple! I was so excited to finally find the perfect day-to-night dress that I could wear from the office right to the bar. This dress is very flattering and comfortable and is very high-quality material. It can easily be dressed up or down. My only small complaint is that the hem isn't as substantial as I would like it to be, typically I like hems to either fall straight down (and stay there) or to be flared. This one seemed to go kind of inbetween after sitting down all day. I'm hoping with some ironing it will stay flat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for work and play It's hard to find a great LBD. This one is perfect. Long enough for work. Playful enough for going out. And with jewelry can be dressed up for special occasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and versatile! This dress is basic but so flattering and useful! It's a sweater/knit fabric but short sleeves so it could work with sandals or loafers in the summer and then boots and a scarf in the fall and winter. It also is great for pairing with statement necklaces. Would definitely buy this in more colors! I am about 130 lbs and 5'4 and got the XS for a more snug fit. It stretches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and Classic I'm 5'4 and 114 lbs. and I got this dress in a XS. It is so flattering and very comfortable. I like that the length is a bit longer than normal; it comes to the top of my knee. I can wear it dressed up with heels for a wedding or dressed down and worn to the market. It is a bit pricey, but I'm positive that I'll get my money's worth!
