Colorblock Sheath Dress
This dress is exquisite. It wears almost exactly the way it looks in the photo. I love that the underarm portion of the dress is a bit low so it's not rubbing right into your underarm, and actually manages to make the dress more comfortable, without being too loose or anymore revealing than if the dress sat higher on the side. The way the fabric drapes along the chest looks and feels luxurious. The belt is nice quality and adds to the Jackie-O look of the dress. It is slightly lower in the back than the average sheath dress, but still high enough not to be problematic.
As for sizing, I find that it runs at least a full size small. For reference, I'm generally a size 2 on top, a size 4 on bottom. I ordered size 4, fit perfectly on top and is just the slightest bit too snug around the butt/hips (not too tight to return, but too tight to wear to work). So, I ordered a size 4 and it fit like a size 2. If size 6 was still available, I would probably exchange so I could have more flexibility in when /where I could wear the dress. But, it's still a keeper!

Love this dress - it's well made and the colors are just beautiful. I found it ran pretty small. I'm normally a size 2, occasionally a 4. I'm returning the 2 for a size 6. It was way too tight all over.

This runs a little big! I normally wear a 0/2 and I ordered a size 2- WAY TOO BIG! This has stretch and is a nice dress- but runs big! I am 5'4- it hits perfectly at mid calf- LOVE the length! But It runs so large- the 0 would be too big. I am 34-26-34 for reference.
I am returning the dress~
