I did the 100 day challenge in a plum Kalle Ponte. I liked the slim cut of the dress, and the length is great. Given the time of year that I started the challenge, I used a lot of layering to cover my arms, but the weight of the fabric was good. Now that it's getting a little warmer, I could see it being maybe too warm for some, depending on how active you are. I received many compliments, and the placement of the pockets is perfect, using them for my phone or keys did not affect the line of the dress at all. I stay at home with my kids, and it worked well, but I could see it being a great choice in an office setting as well. My measurements put me right in the M, and I was happy with the sizing.
After carefully reading other reviews, I went with an XL instead of my usual L. I’m glad I did. I could definitely wear a large, but I wanted something a little less form fitting for work. I wear this black dress at least once a week. It pairs perfectly with a cardigan or a blazer. I loved this dress so much I ordered it in plum as well. Beautiful color!
Was strongly counseled to select my dress size based on the detailed measurement table. Based on my actual measurements and the table, I sized up to an L--in the range across the board. Unfortunately the dress, it was 100% too large upon arrival. While maybe it would shrink down to size in the wash, it feels like a huge risk, due to the return policy. To move forward with this brand, I'm now stuck with two choices: try a smaller size and pray it doesn't shrink, or keep this version recommended based on my actual body measurements and pray it does shrink. Given that this is the most expensive article of clothing I have EVER purchased, I feel incredibly anxious about either option.

I love the products, but as a 6’ tall, curvy and mature woman, I’d like to see items with that in mind. We only need a few inches longer!
This is my first (but won't be my last) Wool& dress and I couldn't be happier with it. I'm using it for my 30 day challenge and it has not disappointed me. Works great under a blazer for work. I have worn it as skirt, and tucked under as a tunic with jeans and pants.
