Banana Republic Callie Shirt Dress Review

I did see this dress in stores for full price, so definitely check it out online where it's already on sale.  It comes in corally pink, stone, and black. Banana Republic carries the Callie Shirtdress in tall, regular, and petite sizing online. 

The 97% cotton + 3% spandex composition makes for a nicely fitting dress that is still comfortable.  Plus, this bad boy is machine washable = a big win in my book.  Runs TTS for me.  On seam pockets and sleeves are often features that I look for in dresses, and this shirtdress definitely has both!  The style is both flattering and classic.

I think this is a great, lightweight, and comfortable dress for the warmer months.  It is definitely easy to style; a simple pin or statement necklace will keep this dress polished and pretty.  Gals with a larger bust may want to size up or skip this dress all together.

Overall, I think I'd be better off with petite sizing because I prefer a shorter skirt length; that being said, I do like (but don't love) the dress. What do you think?  Should I keep this dress or return it?
