I own a lot of Lillies, including many of the knit dresses----Marlowe, Palmetto, Linden, Sophie, Alessia, etc. etc. etc. But the Riva is my favorite one of all. The cut is perfect-----not too tight and not too baggy, and finally, the LENGTH is perfect for someone who is tall. And the tunic neckline is my favorite as well---easier to wear than the boat necks and not as revealing as the deep vees. I LOVE this dress and in fact own it in all 3 colors, and call me crazy, but this print is so gorgeous I had to buy another one, "just in case" something happens to my other one!!! That's how much I love this dress! I wish it came in every print available. Love, love, LOVE it!!!! Oh, and the quick delivery by Splash was fantastic!!! THANK YOU!!!!
When the dress arrived I immediately tried it on because I was so excited about it, however, it looked like I was wearing a poofy slip underneath it. From the waist down the dress flares and looks like something an elementary aged girl would wear. I'm going to have the dress tailored but for the price you shouldn't have to alter this dress.
This dress is light and silky. I was unsure about the polyester but since so many ladies loved this dress in Going Coastal, I thought i'd give it a try. The print is a bit neon but still pretty. The dress is a bit big on me. I ordered a 2 and now I am thinking a 0 may have fit better, although it may be a bit tight. In the past shift dresses in a 0 were to small, so I would size up to a 2 but now they are big again. Great print to start off spring! Love it! If you are able to try on prior to purchase, I would recommend.
My Yellow First Impressions Mila is a 0, so I ordered this one in a 0 as well once I heard it ran a bit small. I am happy with my decision for the extra room and length. I am typically a 00/xxs in all shifts (except Cathys I can't wear those) and tshirt dresses. This dress is gorgeous and if you are on the fence I would pull the trigger. I have a feeling this may turn into an HG. It is definitely a favorite in my collection.
