Classic and totally out of the box!
Bought this dress for my small intimate evening wedding this past December 2013. I am 5'10", 130lb, with a short waist and long legs and this dress was so perfect for me! I have a larger bust, and paired with the short waist, often have problems finding dresses that don't make me look too matronly or top heavy. This dress is not super fitted, and the transition from the bust-hips-legs is gradual, creating a beautiful soft line. I will agree, it is a very short dress, but the neckline is high to balance it out. The sleeves are the perfect touch. It is also extremely comfortable too!

Gorgeous and unique
This dress is really well made. I debated the price since the pattern doesn't line up perfectly in back, and sometimes it bunches (I tried on several). But overall the workmanship is superb. Color is accurate in the pics here. I bought a 12 and it seems TTS, though the arms are a bit restrictive and it has no stretch. The 14 was way too big. It is short, especially when sitting down, so as one reviewer said, you'll want to be comfortable showing leg. I feel beautiful in it and had to have it. Price felt steep considering I don't have a formal occasion--yet--but it did go down the runway in Anna Sui's fall show and I also saw it in the window in her Soho store when visiting NYC, which somehow justified it. Plus, I love it.

I bought this dress for my small/fairly casual wedding in December 2013 and could not have asked for a more perfect dress! I checked out the sizing chart and ordered the dress in a size 4, and it was a perfect fit. (I am 5'3" tall with an hour-glass figure and usually purchase size 4 or 6 clothing.) The dress is a bit on the short side, but worked out well since I am on the shorter side anyways. I was a bit hesitant about the belled sleeves when I ordered it, but loved it once I tried it on. The fabric and overall design was beautiful as well...

Cut big and cute for a younger person
I am looking for a dress to wear as a casual wedding dress. I ordered this in an 8 (typically an 8) and it was a little big all over. The dress was far too short for my age (45) and just did not look good on me overall. I think that on a younger woman, with great legs, this would be a very pretty dress. It is very well made and the color in the picture is true to the actual dress.
