I ordered this dress as a basic piece for my wardrobe in those days where I didn't want to get dressed but still wanted to look good - and it is perfect. I'm kind of short so I pin the bottom and pair it with a nice cardigan to keep covered. The fabric is soft and super stretchy which I love and IT HAS POCKETS! The pockets are probably my favorite part because they're roomy and allow me to leave my purse at home! Love this dress!
