I bought the longer size and recently wore it to a work conference. I didn’t need to press it after a flight, which was great. The Donna looks sharp over it. I was comfortable presenting and schmoozing the entire day as well. I went with white wine at the cocktail reception! At 5'3" and 153, the drop waist hung around the widest part of my stomach. I was swimming in the 10 so I kept the size 8 knowing it would probably stretch out a little and it did. Not very much, but enough so that it wasn't too clingy on my stomach.
This dress was love at first sight. I have pined over it for what feels like forever. It is beautiful, classic, versatile, and the quality is impeccable. You can see the love that went into this garment from the design detail, to the fabric used. It is the best. Unfortunately, despite many attempts, this dress just doesn't work for my shape. I am a true pear shape: small up top with wide hips and rear, and athletic thighs. I wear a size 27 or 28 in denim, and either a small or medium in pants. All of the dresses in my closet are a Small. I have tried this dress in a 4, 6, and 8 and none worked. It went from too tight around the bottom to less tight, but the top part just got progressively bigger and looked off. It would have been too much $$$ and too much work to bring to the tailor. I AM BUMMED.
Overall this dress is stunning and I will live vicariously through all of you who look amazing in it.
I love this dress so much. The fabric, the cut, the feel…it’s amazing. It’s versatile and looks so polished. This dress will get so much wear.
I have the navy Twiggy, in the original shorter length, and I love that one too. This one, in the longer length, is wonderful, and it feels long enough to be totally professional and still gorgeous in a social/ fun setting. I wore this at a large conference I spoke at recently, and I got so many compliments. It takes seconds to put on, it's easy to dress up or down, travels so well, and it's quick and easy to wash. One of my favorite Classic Six pieces so far! If you are considering this one, don't hesitate - it's worth every penny.
I own this dress in all three colors and just purchased the navy in the longer length to be more appropriate for work functions. Like all Classic Six pieces, this dress is also perfect for traveling. It is wash and wear and doesn’t need ironing. I have worn it to brunch with sneakers and the next day to my niece’s baptism. I have a bit of a tummy and this dress slims me up and makes me feel beautiful every time I put it on. Don’t hesitate to buy this dress.
