Textured open-back dress
Super cute dress. Fits great. Flares out nicely. Doesn't hug or show any unwanted curves

I love this dress - it is kind of an awkward fit. I am not sure about the pleats in it ? but oddly I would have bought in another color ? but they didn?t have my size. I bought the sparkleberry and love the color. I have gotten compliments on this dress. It is kind of a weird feeling fabric, so it did take time to get used to, but over-all I am happy with this dress. I would suggest checking it out in the store before you purchase it as oppose to shopping online. It is a heavier fabric, so on really hot summer days, probably not a dress I will wear outside. As for work, with a light sweater or jacket I can wear to work.

This dress is amazing. I bought it in-store a few weeks ago (in cobalt) because I thought it would be a nice dress to wear to work in the summer (I teach college English in HOT Florida) -- not too casual, not too dressy. I ended up unexpectedly wearing it to my mom's wedding last weekend; I dressed it up with a cream chiffon shawl, some pretty off-white pumps and matching clutch, and some pearly jewelry that also had rhinestones that matched the belt. I have never received so many compliments on an outfit as I did on this one!
Some specifics I think might be helpful: I wear a size 18 and am very pear-shaped. This dress is cut a little smaller in the top than many LB dresses and flairs just below the bust with some pleats. This cut worked beautifully for my shape, but it might not be as flattering on someone with a larger bust or rounder shape. I'm 5'4" and rather short-torsoed and it hit just about mid-knee for me.
The cobalt is gorgeous and bright, and I really like the textured fabric -- I feel it adds a little extra coverage. My one and only complaint is that the belt doesn't stay around the waistline well for me (tends to ride up from the seam a tad), but otherwise this dress is just perfect for me. I might even buy a second one in the pink color.

I wore this dress to Easter. It was so comfortable and looked so cute!
