    Cute for work or play

      This is a very nice dress. The material is more dressy than I expected for being listed as a work dress--it is a bit shiny and thinner than it looks in the photos. This isn't bad, just not the thicker wool that I was somehow expecting. The fit is not too boxy as others have written--it is a shift, so it is not supposed to have a defined waistline! I am 5'4" and 120 lbs and the size 4 fit perfectly.

      Thought this looked beautiful on the site. And the navy and black is a beautiful pattern, but the dress was crazy stiff and somehow ended up being very unflattering in the middle, even with the A line shape. Very sad but I am returning this!

        This dress somehow manages to be both totally professional and playful all at once. I wish I had ten of them in awesomely varied patterns.

          I first purchased this lovely, well made dress in Navy size 8 (my usual Boden size) and it was a bit too large. I exchanged for a size 6 and am so happy with the fit and flattering cut. I liked the comfort and style of the dress so much that I purchased it in black as well....and it's just as lovely. I have dressed it up in heels and pearls as well as with a long sleeved blouse underneath. I work in a conservative office and is perfect for work and nice enough for an event afterwards. For reference I have an athletic build, 5'6" and 135 lbs.

          Very nice dress. Like the style/design. I ordered the black. Unfortunately, I will need a petite in this style and it does not come in petite. Bummed. For reference, I'm 5'3", 110 lbs and the 2R was too long and big in the chest and hip areas.

            This runs a little big. I decided to keep the it since it wasn't so big I would have been able to wear it. Could have gone with the smaller size and will in the future.

              Super cute and love the little details. It is a bit larger in the mid region but I am afraid if I go down a size it will be too tight in the chest. I have a large chest so if you are pretty average in the chest you might want to go down a size.
