I get so many compliments whenever I wear this dress! I was walking past an elementary school at recess time the last time I wore it and a little girl ran up to the fence to tell me she loved my dress! It’s really easy to dress it up or down. This is my second Zuri dress so I can say that the fabric of this one is thicker/stiffer than my other Zuri dress but that’s just fine with me. Just something to consider if you want a more drapey silhouette. I recently wore it to my daughter’s 8th grade graduation with a white leather coat, chunky vintage yellow beaded necklace & wedge sandals. If it’s warmer than 60 degrees out and too warm to wear tights, I wear cotton bike shorts as underpants with my Zuri dresses just in case they swing in the breeze just right :-).FitRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2Was this helpful?

I just started purchasing from Zuri and am so impressed with the quality of the material, the beautiful, rich colors/prints, and the versatility of the dresses. The cut of the pieces are what attracted me to Zuri: a more modest fit with nice, mid-length sleeves and a Mandarin collar. - it’s such a sleek, low effort look. This print can’t be beat: it’s so adorable and the birds are a lovely cream color. My only constructive criticism about the dress is really with the fit: while the dress fits me perfectly in almost every regard (5’5”, ~130 lbs. and ordered a S) the upper arms are incredibly tight and restrictive (as in, it’s difficult to move my arms beyond a certain point it’s so tight). Unfortunately I feel like this is going to dissuade me from wearing the dress as much as I had hoped to. When I order in the future, I will size up and hope that gives me the room I need for my arms to move more freely, albeit it might be baggy elsewhere. I’ve seen a few other reviews mention the same issue, so it seems to something to be aware of when considering what size you will purchase.Was this helpful?

This dress is so artistic and aesthetically beautiful. I’d seen it in a 2017 article in the New York Times about the founding of the Zuri company. The birds have been drawn beautifully. The detail of the linework in them is so pleasing to the eye. I’d always admired this dress and I’m so happy Zuri has reprinted it. It’s a classic!Was this helpful?

Thinking about a Zuri dress? Take the plunge with this one and prepare to be inundated with compliments galore everywhere you go! This one has an artsy and fun vibe that’s irresistible! Colour note: Described online as a navy (background) and cream (birds) print, the colours are actually a very lovely true navy and light yellow.Was this helpful?
