Silky and comfortable

This is a shirt dress so the fit is blousy. As is, it would be good for a casual night out, vacation, with leggings, or with a bump. I wanted a more tailored look for work so I used a wide belt. Silky feel but didn't wrinkle even though I brought it on a trip (folded in dry cleaning plastic). The sleeves are long so have to be folded back as cuffs. Looked pulled together but felt like jammies!

My favorite work dress

The dress is super comfy and looks great with a pair of textured tights and ankle boots, i loved the design. I wore a slip under bc it was a little shorter than I'd like for work but it was still super awesome - i totally recommend it.

DVF does it again. A LOT of comments on the print.

Fit well, perfect slip dress and length was good for work. I ended up buttoning it up all the way bc it was a classier look with my boobs. Loved the print on this - will rent again and maybe buy!

Love the print wish it came with a belt

I'm a size 6 and the small was alright. Not too tight or too loose. I think I would have been ok in a Medium as well if I wanted a looser fit. Wore with tights and my own belt. Lots of compliments but I wish this came with its own belt.

Pretty but runs large

I absolutely adored this print. I love DVF and this dress was no different. It does run large though and while I loved it, it was a bit loose. I don't know how flattering it was but I paired it with tights and ballet flats and felt put together but comfortable.

Great with boots and a shawl. Super short dress. Can't wear it too much as pattern is memorable.

Overal baggy fit, wish I would've sized down or had a big belt to throw on top.

Huge

The print was cute so I was bummed when I put the dress on and swam in the size Small (I'm a true 6). It fit so big I thought they sent me an XL.

DVF dresses and I

DVF almost always works for me, the silk dresses especially. This one did too. It is a simple, loose shift shirt dress. My only issue was that I styled it poorly. it is black, loose, and baggy, and the weather was cold so I had on black tights. That made me look a bit like a goth scarecrow, unfortunately. Next time I'd go higher heels and bare legs.

Fun print

This dress was kind of a loose shirt dress, with buttons all the way down the front. I think the birds are parrots, and their bright colors add pop to a loose black dress. Pretty comfortable, appropriate for work, and the fabric is a bit thin

Husband said I looked like I was wearing an oversized pajama shirt. Inappropriate for work but would be absolutely lovely for vacation.

Easy to wear, impressive dress

It's definitely an oversized look. I'm normally a 12, and the medium was fine. A little tighter around my hips than I would have preferred, but nothing noticeable. Received a ton of compliments, and will definitely wear multiple times before returning. I paired it with tights and thigh high boots for work.

Great print but runs big.

Wanted this for a trip to New Orleans, but unfortunately it was huge and shapeless. Belted don't work because there was just too much extra fabric. The print is awesome and the fabric is lovely, but size down at least 1 size.

A little big but still make it work

Enough room for my bump, the fabric was pretty thin so it wasn't the most elegant look but I loved the print.

Nice print but way too large!

I am usually a xs, s, 2/4. The small swallowed me and looked ridiculous. I don't think the XS would have been any better. The sizing is way off on this dress. I would probably be able to wear a XXXS if it existed. The print is pretty. I wish that it ran smaller.

Beautiful print on a shapeless but timeless dress

Shapeless can be a good thing, can be a bad thing. I am tall and thin with an hourglass figure, so this dress really hid all of my usual "assets". But it was a dark venue, I was seated most of the night, and the compliments rolled in from passersby behind me on how beautiful the print was. I think it's a cool, "different" dress.

Cute, fun, short - size down

I'm definitely a medium but sized down. The small was great everywhere except in length, so I wore it over opaque black tights with boots - which made it acceptable for running around. The back is slightly longer, which is nice. Great print, great material.

Nice and comfortable - lots of compliments on the print!

Tons of compliments on the print, I wore it with black tights and black combat boots. It is super easy fitting, but perhaps a bit too easy - might want to size down if you are undecided.

Unique and fun piece

This dress very loose fitting and has no structure whatsoever (would be great for maternity wear.). It didn't look good belted as there is so much extra material but I really liked the pattern so ended up wearing it as a kimono over jeans and a cami.

Easy to wear

Feels like a simple shirt dress, very comfortable and light fabric; however, little details like the pattern, high quality fabric, split at ends of sleeves make it look so special. Best of both worlds that you get to feel like you're almost wearing pajamas but look like you've put effort into your outfit.

When belted it was shorter than I was comfortable with, so wore with leggings and over the knee boots with a jacket. Lots of compliments.

Cute as a dress and as a top

I wore this to work as a top. Would be SUPER cute as a dress during a happy hour or casual get together. I probably could have worn it to work as a dress with tights and boots in the winter but it was too warm here for that. Lots and lots of compliments but to me, it was a great everyday top.
