    This is going to be my go to dress this fall/winter. I first ordered in regular, but exchanged for tall (I'm 5'8") in order to make sure it could be worn for work (education) as well as church, date night, or other events. Shoes and accessories can change this from work wear to dressy affair quickly. Super comfy and great quality.

      I got the firecracker color and it's such an amazing color that makes you feel good wearing it! My main complaint is the zipper as I have trouble zipping it up without my husband's help. I also think the sides of the skirt need better tailoring as the ugly uneven seams make the dress looks cheaper than it really is. Also the area in the hips and overall skirt can also be taken in a little to make it less poofy. I'm petite but prefer the longer lengths on the dresses so I got the 4L which may explain the roomy fit on my body.

        I ordered this dress in Fire Cracker and wore it to work for the first time yesterday. Compliments all day - from coworkers and strangers. It fits like a glove (I ordered 4R and am 5'3" 128lbs, 32C, hits about 1.5-2 inches above my knee, and has a great weight and stitch pattern to it. The color is fantastic, brighter than my usual, but fantastic. Highly reccommend!

            I'm 5'1", 130 lbs with a 36B chest. I have wide shoulders and I'm almost always an 8 or medium for tops/dresses (small or size 4 bottoms). I got this dress in orange/red in 8R and it fits meperfectly. I always loved the way the model looked in the orange/red dress and I finally decided to order it since it was on clearance! Oh I love the dress!! The material is rather thick (although it's not lined) and stretchy. The color is really bright reddish orange which is definitely my color (medium skin and dark hair). Although I'm not sure which season I'm going to wear this dress - fall, winter, or spring? But I'm going to love it when I get to wear it!

              I can't wait to wear this dress with some tights and boots. It is made of thick comfortable material and has a lovely flattering but conservative enough for work shape. I bought the blue and it is a nice jolt of color in my normal sea of black clothes

                Great dress that fits well. I got the long version, and it's right at my knees, so I can imagine that the regular would have been too short for work, etc. I also got the orange color, and it's literally traffic cone orange. I'm keeping it, but not sure I look great in that color.

                  I am waiting to wear this dress when it gets a little cooler. I figure with a long necklace and high boots, this should look darling on. It makes me look younger without making me look young, if you know what I mean. And I love wearing bright, cheery colors, like this fire orange during dreary winter months.

                      Ordered the navy in my usual size 6. Fits just fine, very easy and comfy. Not an amazing dress, but a good staple I will turn to often. Oh - love the versatility because it can be paired with numerous colors depending on your mood or event!!
