Pretty meets preppy in this classic polo dress crafted from smooth jersey in two punchy solids. Tie on the self-belt (in a bow for a sweet
look) or swap it out for a leather number for more edge. The details are country-club chic: cap sleeves and a collar to prop up or not.
Above-knee length with shirttail hem. Smooth midweight cotton/rayon/spandex. Imported.
I got this in the blue color. It isn't vibrant, it sort of looks like it is faded, or maybe just dull. The fit was perfect and the fabric very soft and comfortable. It reminded me of a "house dress" my aunt wore in the 1950s. I tried it on several times but ultimately it just isn't me. The pink might be more fun and fashionable..

It really needs a belt

This dress sticks out a bit around the bottom so you really do need a belt as shown in the photo. It fits nicely otherwise.

Dress runs large
Date:July 31, 2014
The fabric is lightweight and the azalea color is very bright, both pluses as far as I'm concerned. However, I found that it runs too large for me in my typical size. I'm ordinarily a M in GH knit dresses, though sometimes a S, but generally I need the M unless the description says it is oversized, relaxed or something of that sort. I found the waist and hips very full and loose in this dress, which is not clear from the photo at all. I may try the S, although I'm not sure whether the dress may be too tight in the bust then. I have a fairly slim body, apart from the bust, which seems to be true to size. I really wish the photos were more revealing. I also didn't see anything in the description that would have helped me better pick a size.

We appreciate your feedback! Keep in mind we list measurements, including the waist under the 'Measurements' tab. If you need assistance with a freight free exchange to try a different size, give us a call 800.870.3513.
Tried this dress in Navy which is more of a dusty mid-blue shade, not a true navy. Sleeves are dolman style cap sleeves. I tried it in Size S, which was good in the bust, but a little snug in the hip. Size M was too large in the bust. If you have slimmer hips (not a Pear shape), then it should fit well.
