My Pocahantas Dress
4.15.2013
" It is a very cute dress. It is not black like it seems in the picture, it is a dark blue color. I wore it to a BBQ and everyone called me Pocahantas! It is unique and I love that. I had a hard time finding shoes for it because the length is a a little weird for my height. It is also sheer. I looked at the pictures taken that evening and you can totally tell it's sheer. I think it is worth the price. I actually bought it for less the selling price. When I added it to my basket it was like $20 less. "

Pretty but sheer

" Great 70s style. The bottom is more body hugging (at least on me) than it appears to be in the picture but in a flattering way. I had to send it back, though, because you could see right through the skirt. If I were only wearing it at night with dark colored tights, it might not be a problem, but I couldn't wear it to work. "

Fits like a glove

" I was so happy when this dress went on sale and I had to purchase it. It came in the mail yesterday! Big props to FP for sending it out so quickly! So, the dress fits beautifully and I love the Navy Blue color. I am going to pair the dress with my dark green lace up mocassin style boots! "

70's style winter dress

" When I ordered this dress, I also thought it was black, but I was surprised and pleased by the dark navy blue that it is in real life. It goes nicely with the colors of the pattern. I ordered an xs and it's perfect on me (I am 5'6" and around 103 lbs) and I like the length, which goes a bit below the knees. However, you should be aware that this dress has quite a bit of extra fabric around the shoulder/upper arm area, which wasn't a problem for me but might be for someone with broad shoulders. I like how it puffs out slightly right before the fitted half-sleeves; it gives a unique and very retro look when on. The fabric is durable but soft and the cinched waist is just lovely! I like that it doesn't need a belt to look fitted. I'd definitely recommend this dress; I'm going to wear mine on Christmas day! "

" It is a very lovely dress, suitable for cold winters. I don't agree with the comment of the previous reviewer. The color is, indeed, blue, but very dark navy blue, close to black. "
