Pleasant surpriseThis dress looks better on than on the rack. I tried it on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. I am usually not a lace fan, but the thicker fabric, comfortable fit and quality construction won me over! A small fit me well. I did not have the zipper problem. I will either wear it as is for parties or with a long sleeve shirt under it with a blazer on top for work. Thanks for the versatile winter dresses, Anthro!

Fun to dress up or down!I tried this on, on a whim. I thought it would be too short waisted from both the picture and the look on the hanger. However, it fits beautifully! It's a knit dress, but still has significant structure. The lace is a raised print, rather than something fragile - but gives a great effect. The fit is TTS. It's about 2 inches longer on me than in the photo, and hits right at my knee, I'm 5'5-6. W sheer or no hose and heels, it's ready for a dressy night out; w tights, flats and a cardi fun for a relaxed date; w denim jacket, a chunky necklace and boots or booties, you are ready for an adventure!

Work to Night Out DressI received this dress as a Christmas gift and found it to be TTS in a 6. I love the detailing in the pattern - it looks delicate and feminine but the fabric is actually quite thick. The dress seems very well-made. It was also very flattering on me (I'm 5' 2" with 34 DD chest) and fit in all the right places. I think this dress could easily be worn to work with a cardigan, tights, and booties. It could also be dressed up as a night out dress, so I appreciate the versatility. I might put a belt or something with it though to add some interest - it's a lot of one pattern.

Flattering dress, great material, faulty zipperThe fabric on this dress won me over -- both the pattern and the weight. It's thick, but not heavy. However, be aware that the zipper is defective. As of today, it is still on full price in my Chicago locations and online, yet there were several reduced to less than half on the sale rack with zippers that had failed. As a previous shopper commented, I picked it up anyway at a steal of a price and will pop in a new zipper (easy for me as I sew, but still inexpensive if you take it to a seamstress). Totally worth it if you don't mind the small hassle. Do not buy at full price as the zipper will surely fail.
