Bought this dress online with a little hesitation because of the giant cross in the middle. I am 5'2 and this dress fit perfectly! It complimented all the right places. The leather came a little crumpled when I received it but I wore it to work and it straightened out. Another gorgeous dress from The Limited!

Fits like a glove! Quality material, caught it on sale which makes it even better
The dress is made of lovely material. The cut is wonderful. The color choices are fantastic. That being said, when I wore the dress, I couldn't tell if I was going out to a party, going to work, going to an art museum, or on my way to becoming an extra in a Madonna or Lady Gaga video. Further, the way the light hit the faux leather really accentuated the fact that it looked like I was wearing a cross. I think this dress can work in some occasions, but again, the question is where? Maybe an event, but other than that, I would have a hard time wearing this to work or out.
I love The Limited's ponte sheath dresses, they're comfortable and hold their shape well throughout the day. The tan leather detailing is a nice touch, but I found this dress ran a bit ore snug than I'm used to. I'm 5'8, 140lbs, and my typical size medium didn't leave a ton of wiggle room. Sizing up made the dress a bit too big. This dress hit about three inches above my knees, so it's a nice twist on a classic black dress!
