Empire State's colours are definitely NOT for my skin tone, but I had to have it! I was happy to snag the last one in my size. The designs on the pattern are so beautiful, I should hang it up as a piece of art.FitRated -1.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

Empire State arrived a bit darker than I was expecting, but the colors are rich, saturated, and gorgeous! The fit was perfect and just as expected. It was a lovely dress to wear to celebrate my fall birthday and will go into rotation for work, too. The weight is a bit heavier than some of my other dresses, perfect for fall and chillier days!
