A lot of JCAs aren't a big fan of this dress, but for me it's a mixed bag. It runs small, so I'd say size up. The material is thin and scratchy. It's wrinkle-prone, but I think it has several redeeming qualities, including pockets, a flattering silhouette, and pretty pleats. Plus, you can't beat the button detailing. I'd say it's tight across the bust/chest area (I guess I'm just too bootylicious for this dress. :D). The sleeve length flatters, but I've also heard that many think the hemline is a bit short. I think for weekend and casual wear, the length is okay, especially paired with tights. On me, it could stand to be a touch longer, but overall, I'm okay with the length. Conclusion: I'm ambivalent. What do you all think?
