What I love about the dress: the thickness. It is not a thin, flimsy garment; it has a nice weight and drape to it, and it is comfortable to wear.
What I don't love: the sash. It reminds me of a bathrobe sash, and it actually kind of makes the dress look like a very fancy bathrobe. It would look much better with a different belt or none at all.
Sizing: I am going to say it runs about right, but not perfect. I am a M according to waist and hip measurement, and a L according to bust measurement. I got the L to be on the safe side, and I am glad that I did. The L fits right in the bust, right at the waist, and a little loose in the hips. It should have been a little loose at the waist, so in that case, the waist runs small. The length was super long, even with three and four inch heels. I am average height and I will need to have it the length altered (a super easy fix, though!).
Color: I got the dark green. It looks much more vibrant on screen, of course. The dark green is pretty dark. It's not the dark emerald as I was hoping for, but you can still tell it is green.
Cut: The neckline has a pretty good plunge and it will show cleavage if you are a B+/C or higher. The leg opening is also high, but that is easy to stitch up without it pulling apart if you need it a little more modest (I am fine with it as is!). The seam at the waistline is a little high. I am average height, but I am also long waisted. Most waist seams on dresses hit too high on me, so that is no surprise. The belt covers the seam, but if you are bothered by the feel of it and know you are long waisted, it could be an issue. I think I will be fine with it; it's more comfortable than most.
Value: Excellent! this is a nice dress and as I wrote earlier, it is a good weight. It does not have a separate lining, but the fabric has a nice backing. It is a good purchase overall.
