Rated 5 out of 5 by Blue Carolina dress I thought long and hard about this dress and I can honestly tell you I was not disappointed when I open the package last night at time of delivery. It is perfect. I am normally a size 6 or 8 depending on the style and I went with an 8. It is lovely and fits perfect. I am so happy with this very classic, timeless piece. I wore it to work today and within 2 hours I had 4 compliments. I ended up paying a third more on top of the retail price since I live outside the states. Nevertheless it was still so very worth it. I purchased the blue since it is versatile. I was debating whether to bit the bullet and also purchase the white but decided against it since the garment is dry clean only and white is not very forgiving. I would highly recommend the sophisticated understated beautiful dress! May 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovely fabric, great fit The dress is very flattering and comfortable, and the white is sufficiently lined (and in cotton, which is great) so that it's not sheer. Great with sandals to give a more laid back vibe. April 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Happy I bought this dress in blue. I bought my regular size in Tory and it fits perfectly. I love the style and the length is great for someone over 50! I can't wait for the weather to warm up so that I can wear it.I may need it in white as well! February 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Spring/Summer Dress I ordered this after trying on the solid white in the store. The fit, fabric, detail and quality are all top-notch. You can put a cardigan or denim jacket over this and it looks great. February 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the Perfect Dress for Summer! This dress in white is the PERFECT classic shirt dress for summer. The dress is crisp, well constructed, and fits well. It is lined so it is not sheer/see through. I am very picky regarding fit and quality and loathe skimpy white cotton, so I was initially hesitant, but was very pleased with the dress when I tried it on. It has an excellent cut and is very high quality at an excellent price point. It is knee length so appropriate for work (I am 5'7"). I will wear to work on a steamy Washington DC day with a cashmere cardigan and raffia and snake skin heels (and a light tan is a must, as the white is bright white!). My family is traveling to Italy this summer and I will wear with wedge espadrilles and a colorful scarf when visiting the Uffizi in Florence. I am contemplating purchasing the dress in navy as well so can wear in the spring and beyond. Or I may have to get a second dress in white in event it is stained by gelato! This dress is worth buying in bulk given it's classic styling. January 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful This dress is well made and appropriate for work. It fits through the top with gaps and flows smoothly to the knees. I bought a second dress in white I was so pleased with my navy dress! January 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fit and Fabric This dress shape is excellent. I'm tall and the length is appropriate for work and can easily dressed up with heels/belt or worn more casually with sandals. December 23, 2013
