My dress arrived with a snag near the neckline. I offered to keep it for a discount but was told I could send it back, not very environmentally friendly.
I ordered the Swing Style Long Rowena dress. I love the color and the feeling of this dress! I was so excited to receive it and I love wearing it, because the long length is perfect with leggings or tights underneath and it is incredibly comfortable. I also love that it has pockets! It delivered in being a quality made item, and reasonably priced. It also cleans well, dries quickly, and doesn't stink. I am impressed with the durability and moisture wicking of the wool. However, there are a few things that could be improved. The cut of the dress is less than flattering. It seems to have a lot of excess material, and even with a belt it doesn't have a great shape to it. Please understand: it's not that I want this to hug my curves but this bulky dress erases them completely and makes me look like I'm wearing a (beautifully colored and soft) circus tent. I will still wear it and enjoy styling it in different ways, but either the sizing is way off or the cut is too generous. I had hoped to do the #100daydresschallenge but my husband begged me not to after seeing me in the dress. Instead, it will be a lounge around the house dress instead of a professional clothing item I had hoped for. I'm not sure if I should have sized down but I did follow the recommended sizing guides on the website.
I am 6 days into to #100daydresschallenge.. and loving every moment.
I usually wear a 6 - 8, and that sort of puts me between sizes. I chose the small because j wanted something closer fitting, so I could layer it. Also... i am concurrently working on a nutrition program and losing those extra pounds i picked up..
And didn't want the dress to be too soupy after i lose my projected 20 lbs.

I'm wearing my Rowena again today, for the 5th time since I got it a couple of weeks ago. It's exactly what I wanted. The fabric is soft and comfortable and it drapes beautifully. It's been a little bit staticky since the weather turned extremely cold and dry last week, but a little Static Guard seems to have solved that problem. It washed easily and dried quickly (just washed it for the first time yesterday). I have the Jewel Green and I love the color, it's very flattering. I'm a teacher and this has been a great dress for wearing to work, especially when I have to sit on the floor (I got the longer version). Dresses that work for sitting on the floor are a must when teaching music to small children!
3 days into the 100 day dress challenge, and I am loving this dress. It's easy to wear, easy to style, and has gone through 3 days without smelling like... well, like it's been worn for 3 days straight. The material was thinner than I expected, but it's worn well so far and doesn't feel too lightweight for New England Winter when paired with a sweater and leggings or fleece tights. I probably could have gone down a size, but I struggle with items that are too clingy, so this is working well for me, even if it's a little more...flowy.
Very comfortable and versatile! The fabric is thin and seems to be summer weight but is just warm enough and cool enough. Can't wait to start my 100 day challenge.
This dress is wonderful to live in. The fit of the small is perfect in the shoulders and arms, but I do have narrow shoulders for my height/weight (typically wear a 2/4 top and 6 bottom). I like the dress best with a waist belt, otherwise it feels a bit baggy and informal—which I perfect for just chilling out, but I typically want to look a bit more put together out. I am very glad I got the long length. I wouldn’t feel comfortable in a shorter dress.
I am 11 days into the 100 day dress challenge, and I am pretty happy with my dress. I think in future purchases I will definitely go down a size. It's a little big on the shoulders, my bra straps keep slipping out. Typically I wear a medium, but I think a small would have been perfect. It's very comfortable and pairs with many different pieces I already have in my wardrobe. However, I will say the material is a little light. I was looking for something more heavy to wear in the winter, and seeing that it is wool I was expecting something warmer. I think this is definitely a fall/spring, summer evening dress. I'm looking forward to finishing the challenge!
I want to be wowed by a dress that costs $140. The material is thin and it still feels a little itchy on my skin. I wore it for 10 days straight and I haven’t really been loving it.
The fit and length are good. The green color is more of a teal and it’s a little to bright for me.
I just received my plum-colored Rowena dress. I eagerly ripped open the packaging and tried it on. Instant LOVE! I wasn't expecting that at all. I thought the fabric might be scratchy, but it wasn't! It was thinner than I expected, but it drapes well, and it's so soft. The dress hit me right at the top of my knees, which is perfect. The fit is a little tighter in the arms, but plenty loose everywhere else. I started trying the dress with various sweaters, scarves, jackets, wraps, etc. It looked great with everything! That's where the lighter fabric works so well. The slimmer fit arms also work well with layering. I immediately ordered two more colors. I just wish they were in stock now instead of waiting 6-8 weeks. One point I will address: A number of people have commented that the boatneck cut didn't cover their bra straps. I didn't have this problem at all. I'm wondering if people are buying the dress larger than they need to. I noticed a lot of people around my height and weight ordering Mediums. That size would have looked like a shapeless sack on me! Just for reference: I wear a small in most J. Jill and Eddie Bauer shirts, sweaters, and dresses, so I ordered the Small here. I guess it all depends on the fit you're looking for.
