Versatile and Comfy dress

The only reason I did not give this dress 5 stars was because it was not totally becoming on me. I am a pear shaped, athletic type build 5ft 3in and age 55+. The fabric is uber soft and I think the dress is very chic. The problem for me is that it is a bit tight in the back end but with my Spanx on it will be fine. It is somewhat fitted through the shoulders and bust, sort of like a shirt waist blouse would be. It would be very cute with a belt, but that hikes it up a bit in length (above the current knee length). It is a straight or slightly A-line at the bottom of the dress. If I can wear it I think 80% of pear types could wear it. Looks great with flat sandals, scarf, or I may even try ankle boots in the fall with bare legs (I am in Houston). It should pack and travel great and is one of those dresses that never goes out of style. Plus you have the Pendleton brand, which still doesn't scrimp on fabric quality or design details.
