I ordered this dress from Angie's Top Picks post a few weeks ago... it wasn't available locally so took a leap of faith and ordered it... my usual size is a 6 but by the time I got around to ordering a 6 was sold out. I went ahead and ordered an 8. I honestly didn't have very high hopes for it since I read some reviews from other ECI dresses on the Nordstrom's website and most were not that positive... but I have to say that I really like it... I think I could have gotten away with a 6 but I am happy with the 8. I do think I will need to get it hemmed about an inch. However, It wasn't as long as I thought it would be. For reference I am 5'4. Anyway it is even prettier in person and the colors are wonderful for Fall.
