Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Dress I bought this in a size 4, and might have been able to size down to a 2. It runs slightly large in my opinion and the fabric is has lots of give. It's unlined but the fabric is so substantial that I think it's fine without it. It's machine washable and has pockets. You can wear it to work and go out in it after. Plus I love the combination of navy and black. Just can't go wrong with this dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dress! I just love this dress. It fits well, and the pleats are "roomy." I ordered a size 10 and I am 5'6" and 155 pounds. It is a little loose, but still fits. The pockets are what "sold" me. The colors are outstanding, and I wear this dress with black tights and black boots. Worth the money. Sometimes I go to the discount stores, and I have decided that quality and looks are worth something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Fall Dress I love anything navy so this dress was a no-brainer for me. I normally don't like pleats but on this dress, I found it flattering and accentuated my rather lack thereof waisted figure. I'm pairing them with flats for a casual day out or with tights and booties on cooler evenings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute, simple, great quality I normally avoid tailored dressed with sleeves because I am somewhat broad-shouldered, but this one fit really nicely in the shoulders, fell nicely in the back, and was a tiny bit roomy in the waist (but still fitted enough that I could wear a belt). I am 5'10"/137 and the sz 4 fit perfectly - also, the dress was short enough to be cute but long enough for work (teacher). I bought the navy and black so I could accessorize it easily. Great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great dress! I love this dress. It is a great purchase. It's great for making the transition from work to out. You can wear it with flats to work and then dress it up with heels later on. The waist is a bit higher than i'd typically like, but it has such a great functionality. Having pockets is great. And...wait...the best is machine washable! I was it in cold water (only) delicate cycle...and it dries perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Dress I normally would not spend this much on one dress, but I just love the look. I am petite, 5'3", 105 lbs and 32D. I ordered a size 2 in the burgundy color. It fits well, but may be a tiny bit roomy in the waist. I'm sure that the 0 would fit but it would be too tight in the bust.The fabric is nice and heavy and very soft. I wore it to a work event and received many compliments. The dress keeps its shape and is also a great length. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. Would love to buy a second in another color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable and so versatile Love this dress. It has a wonderful shape and is simple so can be accessorized in so many ways. I love the navy (just bought it) and may return for the willow as soon as it's in the stores. It's also super comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, but not for me I ordered this dress in burgundy because it is such a cute dress. Unfortunately, when I tried it on after receiving it in the mail, I found that it wasn't the dress for me. Don't get me wrong, it is still a lovely dress. I love the color and I love how comfortable the dress is, but the cut of the dress didn't fit well on me. Even though the dress didn't look too flattering on me, I had my friend try it on and it looked stunning on her. So even though I didn't end up with a dress, my friend did and I know she is really happy with it.
