I got the brown /gold and it has a black skirt .Yes it is a bit shiny , but that adds to the dressy appeal and is to be worn on those occasions .The arm holes were large enough for me and I do carry some weight there so [was worried with previous reviews ], I ordered my usual med size and it fits well . I did not check for stretch in the material information so was lucky with this one .so be careful if you are between sizes .
I will wear this dress with a cardigan as dont like my upper arms ..I won't bother with the belt as it looks fine without it .I am 5 feet 8 inch and it comes to my knees .but can be lifted up more and you can have the top half ,hanging over the skirt if wished .
overall a nice dress and I love the pockets!
Rated 2 out of 5 by SassieSue Not for me
While I love the neckline, I was surprised that the skirt portion of this dress was so shiny. Well, I could live with that but the torso portion of the dress was too long for me, it made me look boxy and heavier that I am, back to QVC it goes.

I ordered this dress couldn't wait to get, I absolutely love it, Fits perfectly. The skirt hangs nicely and the pockets are too cute. I did however decide to not use the ribbon. Perfect just the way it is. Highly recommend any of Clinton Kelly's clothes. A+++++++++
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ellamenopause Very pretty dress, but...
This is a very pretty dress, and I ordered it on line in teal. In the photos, the skirt looked black, which is what I wanted, however, upon closer inspection in daylight, the skirt is a midnight navy blue! Who knew!?? The polyester is very shiny, which isn't appropriate for the occasion I bought it for, so I am going to return it. It would be nice to wear to a casual wedding, and I would keep it for that, but I don't have any weddings on the horizon so far this year. The size, L, was perfect for me, a size 14, and the arm holes are a little big in the back, but that's nothing that can't be fixed with a little alteration. I might reorder it if an occasion for a dress like this arises.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Kai63 Yuck!
This dress is HUGE! It's at least two sizes too big. I won't be reodering in a smaller size as it's very boxy and just hangs, I don't think a smaller size will fit what's wrong with this dress. The teal was very beautiful, just didn't work.
Rated 5 out of 5 by hpg35 Excellent Value!
This dress is great. I ordered it in the teal. You can dress it up or down, depending on what you are wearing it for. The first time I wore it to work, I received multiple compliments. I love how it is all one piece and the skirt is lined so you don't have to worry about seeing through the material if you do not wear hosery. I ordered a XS based on my measurements and it fit true to size. My only complaint is the ribbon around the waist is a bit flimsy; it might have been nice if it was wider and in the same material as the dress but you can not use it and not notice since the loops are small and blend into the fabric.

Ordered this in the Brown; color was pretty; felt great against my skin; ordered in my normal size Medium. Sadly sending it back; the armholes showed my bra; and the bodice was a little large; I can wear petite tops and this is always a issue for me. I am 5'6"; so the length was acceptable; however when you sit down it feels too uncomfortable for me; such is the trend these days in buying dresses; Heads Up Designers!! - there are a large amount of ladies in late 50's that would like to have longer hems...the legs are not as great as they used to be :)
If the hem was longer and I ordered a size down I would re-order.
Rated 2 out of 5 by janelnvegas Tight arm holes
I like the look of the dress on the models which is why I ordered it. It fits very loose in the waist and the bust area is a bit puffy which I can live with but the arm holes are barely big enough for me to move my arms around when Im wearing it. It has no stretch which makes it very uncomfortable in that area for me. I will most likely return it. I am disappointed because I love Clinton Kelly & this was the first time I ever saw his clothing line.

I just received this on clearance and it is worth every penny. I love the black and brown combo. Very true to size I ordered extra small and it fits like a glove.
Rated 4 out of 5 by lemon910 okay
I like the dress with the gypsy teal sweater. I like the colour of the dress. The style is a little odd in the skirt and waist, but I can wear the ensemble to work and am satisfied with it. I would recommend it with caution about the poufiness of the skirt. Generally, I am happy with Clinton Kelly purchases.
Rated 2 out of 5 by WITTSEND NOT A GOOD IDEA
I ordered this dress to wear to an upcoming fancy Country Club party. I watched the video presentation twice before deciding on the black choice. Boy, I'm not sure how they came up with a black skirt paired with a brown print top! I thought there would be at least a little black in the top to tie it together, but it is just brown swirled top and stark black skirt -- not a good look. They mention the "retro" exposed zipper and acted like they were really creative with that. No. It just looks very out of place and cheap. I certainly expected a lot more from Mr. Kelly as I love his TV show and trust his designs, but this was just a bad idea from the start.
