Women's Sleeveless Ponté Sheath Dress with Pockets
Great dress but inconsistent fit between colours
I own this dress in leopard and navy storm floral and love them. I wear them to work and receive many compliments. That's why I was so disappointed when I ordered the black and it did not fit the same. In particular, the armholes are a good 3/4 inch deeper which causes unsightly gaping, and the body seems wider overall. The dress is going back. I gave a Good rating because generally the style is good- it's the inconsistency in fit that is bad and probably just the luck of the draw in the one you receive from the stock. More quality control please, LE.

Working lady must have...
I purchased this dress in the "Bright Tomato" color after seeing it in Oprah's magazine. I loved it so much I then purchased it in the Teal. I need a navy dress to add to my wardrobe and I'm seriously leaning towards purchasing a third!!! My job keeps me mobile so I don't have to worry about being wrinkled in between visiting my clients, The fit is also very flattering and office appropriate,

Quality is an issue
I have bought four of these dresses. First, the flower print. It fit perfectly, has washed well, and I love it. I also have a black one that fits great. Then I bought the dark blue about a month ago. The entire dress had issues, like it was defective but slipped by whatever quality checks might be in place. Back it went. I was looking forward to new fall colors, and ordered the sapphire as soon as I saw it. I tried it on and it fit great, but I got some deodorant on it, plus it was pretty wrinkled. I decided to give it a quick wash in cold (no warm water at all!) water on gentle. I pulled it from the washer to hang dry, and discovered several seams puckered, as if some of the stitching thread shrunk, but not the fabric. It's really bad along one side of the zipper. Very odd. I'll return it as we'll. Gave the dress three stars because if you get a good one, it's an awesome dress; but there's a risk of getting poor quality.

This dress is comfortable and versatile. I liked the first one so much I ordered two more. Unfortunately after I washed the first one it shrank lengthwise. Was disappointed but know not to do that next time. Please, more dresses like this!

Love the green!
This dress is so cute! I got the green, size S Petite (5' 2", 115 lbs), and it's so comfortable too! I want the blue one now.

Perfect simple sheath
I have this in two sizes-- Black/L and Plum/Petite L. I am 5'3 and the Petite is a little short, but fine. The L is more "wear to work" and hits right at the knee; the plum petite hits a little above the knee but still fine for work. They both look very classy. The thick material doesn't wrinkle too badly and doesn't show panty/bra lines. On the other hand, it's not "cool," so this isn't a dress to wear in the heat. It is a good dress for wearing to work where you have air conditioning and cardigans. I've gotten numerous compliments on this dress and it's not like I'm some skinny model. I think it's just a super classy, timeless look.

Where is size 14W?
I purchased a black one and a teal one in 14W. Love the black, but the teal is a bit too green for me.
I am very disappointed that the dress isn't available in 14W any more. I got that size for the length of the dress. I can't wear above the knee dresses. So sad I can't get the sapphire version. A 16W would be too big and a regular 16 too short for my ugly knees!

Great at first, then falls apart.
I first purchased this dress in a bright blue and teal pattern, then the solid teal, and then brown with light polka dots. It seemed like a perfect work dress and it fit me perfectly. But, after having the dresses for less than 6 months, two of them have split along the back seam where the bottom of the zipper connects to the rest of the dress (aka on my butt).
I am really bummed out that two of my dresses have come undone - I was planning on purchasing more, but I guess I won't be doing that now.

different colors, different fit...
I just received the black and teal dresses I ordered; very happy with the black. It fits well, nice looking. HOWEVER, the teal is cut so differently! Much wider in the waist, and a very unattractive line. I'm perplexed as to why there would be such a difference. there is also an unpleasant smell to the teal fabric that isn't present in the black one. Strange...The teal is going back, but I am keeping the black one.
