The style and colors are gorgeous! I own about 8 pieces of Tadashi Shoji clothing in my wardrobe and they are all amazing! It is true that the clothes tend to run on the larger size so I purchased this in a 12! I have 2 blouses that I recently purchased in a 10 and they were big so I thought I would be very safe getting this in a 12! I could not even zip the dress up! It's a first for me from this designer! Dress part is VERY clingy! I usually wear a size 12 in most of my clothing from most designers! Unfortunately I will be returning but I am going up 2 sizes and will try to reorder! Recommend if you are very thin and not curvy! The dress shows all body flaws! Great idea and concept And gorgeous in person! I did call about it and was disappointed not to get a response back!
