    The fabric is wonderful, really wonderful. But the styling is a bit strange. I thought it would look better on me, but the elastic waist makes the waist section look bulky. It might look good with a wide belt around it, to help make the transition from top to bottom. Agree with other reviewers that it would work better with skinny jeans or leggings underneath. Can't decide if I will return or keep it. If I tried it in a store, I probably would not have bought it.

    So soft, great material. I am still on the fence about this dress and the fit but I think it will be cute. I haven't had a chance to wear it yet.

    the fabric is soooooooo yummy, top part fits awesome but skirt part is tight and short, walked around constantly pulling skirt down during the day but good deal so buy it!

    This dress is everything I've been searching for. It's warm, but not hot, fitted but not clingy, short but not skimpy and simple but not boring. I am working towards building a "capsule wardrobe" and this will be my staple cold weather item. It lends itself to a variety of accessories and footwear, so the look can be easily changed. The fabric is thick and stretchy. I was expecting it to have a fleece-like interior, but it does not. I am 5'7" and 150 lbs. and I was not sure what size to order so I got M and L and I will describe the difference in fit. The M fits more like a tunic in length (too short to be worn without pants!) and I think it's more flattering overall on me. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to move my legs because others said the skirt was tight, but it's not on me and I have an hourglass shape. This will look amazing with leggings or jeans and boots. The L is about dress length on me and slightly baggy, but not frumpy. The fabric and cut of both sizes nicely camouflage any figure flaws. I got all 3 colors and the dynasty and black raspberry are beautiful saturated colors. The black is actually charcoal gray. The only thing I don't love is the seam 3/4 up the sleeve. It's not a problem, but kind of odd.

    This looked really cute in the photo. The fabric is rich and feels wonderful. The weight and color is beautiful. Loved the hidden zipper pocket in the cuff. However, the fit is very odd. Perhaps it's because I'm very tall but the gathered waist hit at an odd place and was waaaaay too short to wear as a dress. It could be worn with leggings perhaps. The gathering is not elastic, it's just sewn with a gather between the top and skirt sections, it's not easy to get in and out of and it just doesn't hang correctly. I actually looked at the seams closely to see if it would be worth cutting the skirt off and hemming the top portion but I just don't think I could get that to work either. So, I'm sending it back.

    Thicker material and soft. I originally went large due to reviews but I had to return for a medium. I'm 5'5, 153lbs, C cup. Medium fit way better. Love the hide key pouch on sleeve with hidden zipper.

    I wanted to love it. This dress felt amazing on, but it was just strange. It is very well constructed, but an odd shape on. The fabric is very thick and would be warm. It needs a belt or a different waist to make it work. Very short. Returned :-(

    The fabric is as amazing as everyone is saying. A bit static-y but that that is typical this time of year(cold and dry). I am 5'6" 160 and ordered a Lg and glad I did. It's baggy up top but not frumpy and looks good once you set the waist properly, and not too tight or short on me. The medium would have fit but the lg provided a bit more modesty. This is most certainly designed to wear over leggings/tights- I cannot imagine a scenario where you would wear it with bare legs as it is pictured since it is a warm fabric and clearly designed for fall/winter wear! Who wears a long sleeve fleece tunic with a cowl neck with bare legs?? Silly modelling STP. This is a great piece for throwing on over your base layers after outside activities; to hang at the lodge, a friends house, or go out to eat after a romp in the snow. Stuff it in your bag and you have an instant cute outfit! Comfy and lounge-y but a really well built, high quality piece of clothing that looks sharp. Plum color is just beautiful, saturated and lovely tone even nicer in person. I thought I paid a great price on clearance, but notice it's even $5 cheaper now! If you like this kind of look I recommend you grab one of these- I think you'll get your money's worth out of this piece. Cannot beat this price wow!

    This skirt on this dress is pretty short and tight! But it is so large in the top that I don't think I could size up without it being too large. Sad to return because the fabric is very comfortable.

    Thanks to the previous reviewer's comments, I sized up and can wear it with tights/leggings. The bigger size is looser in the hips and thighs, so that area doesn't stick to the leggings/tights. It is a little big in the waist, but it's really comfortable, and I think I could belt it for a more fitted look. I love the blue color, and the fabric is super soft and stretchy. I wore it for traveling last week, with tights and boots, and really like the fit and feel. I also agree that it's too short (for me) to wear with bare legs, but it's accurately pictured, and the length would probably be fine on someone younger than me!
