Little Black Dress
My New Favorite Dress
I love this dress. I have a bit of a pear shaped body with tiny shoulders and larger hips. I bought this dress is the size that fit my shoulders, but because of the pleated skirt it is also the right size for my hips - something that is difficult to find in a dress! The fabric is heavy and stretchy. I love that it has pockets and allows me to wear a normal bra. I feel very slim in the dress because the close fit on top makes me look tiny and the larger poof on the bottom is flattering. And my daughter has the matching girls jumper, so that's pretty cute too.

Works for work!
I never write reviews. This dress is spectacular. I have two kids, 3 & 1 and am always running late. I forgot to buy something for a big work conference of mine and ordered two days ahead of the event. The dress arrived and it was large, but still passable. Note: I washed and dried it yesterday morning for a wedding and now it's perfect. If you have kids, forget to do dry cleaning and need an "emergency dress" this is for you. I am seriously contemplating buying a second one.

Perfect fit, great quality-very flattering
A little thicket fabric than I was expecting but absolutely perfect! The fit looks tailored and it withheld two wears back to back including a fall photoshoot sitting in the leaves outside and a formal event. I moved the flower pin to the hip for one occasion and wore it without for the other. Great investment as you can wear it a million ways with lots of different shoe and accessory types.

The material was wonderful, but the skirt was huge and poofed out like I had a crinoline under it...it wouldn't lay flat and although the waist was huge the hips poofed out even more...and I have a very curvy figure with hips and butt! It just looked odd. Sent it back.

Not For Me !!!
dress looked really cue in the catalog..however when I received it, the fit was much bigger than I anticipated..kind of bulky making the fit awkward..it might work out for someone else..just not me

My new go-to dress
I am thrilled with this purchase! I am petite, so I had it tailored slightly in the shoulders and now it fits me perfectly. This is a dress I will wear to work with tights and a cardigan, to holiday parties, and in our Christmas pictures this year. LOVE that it has pockets and enough detail that it goes beyond the standard black shift.

Love this dress. The fit is true to size. I am 5'7 @ 150 lbs. and the size 8 fits like a glove. Nicely fitted on top and lose and forgiving from the waist down. Great length not too short.

adorable and comfy!
I bought this dress to go to my 30th college reunion...wanted something comfortable but pretty. The substantial fabric of this dress makes the shape beautiful and so so comfortable! Love the pockets! It was chilly that evening so I wore it with a jean jacket, tights and little cowboy boots...perfect! So well made and so flattering! Love it and I know that I will wear this dress until it is worn out!
