This is a beautiful dress! I was pleasantly surprised to see such a high-quality professional dress on STP (normally I get casual/play clothes from them). I am 5'8", 140 lb, and normally wear dresses in size 10/Large, but this one runs a little small. I kept the 10 anyway, but probably would be more comfortable in a 12 for this dress. It stops a couple inches above the knee (but might be OK length if you are shorter). Note: the "gold-toned" buttons at the top & bottom are totally silver (maybe they meant white gold?). Only way to improve this would be if it came with a matching jacket or cropped jacket or shrug or something else to cover the shoulders in the same material. If you're on the fence, go for it! But order 1 size larger than you usually do if you are curvy.
Best Uses: CHURCH, Cocktail party, Night out, Work
Cons: Feels too short, Feels too tight, Overall fit too tight, requires ironing
Pros: Flattering Fit, Fully Lined, Great Color, Machine washable

I really loved the color and fabric of this dress. However, the fit felt odd to me (36"-29"-39", 5'10"). The hips were quite snug, while the top/underarm area was rather loose. I figured that if I went up a size, the top would be quite baggy, so mine was returned.

I was delighted to find this dress at STP after I had tried it on in a fancy dress shop and liked it. It was over a hundred dollars there, but with my STP coupon I paid a quarter of that. The periwinkle is a really pretty color!
