The R & M Richards Women's Graduate Stripe Jacket Dress is very pretty. I ordered a size 8, I am 5'9" tall with a short small waist, narrow hips and long legs. The length was perfect for me since I wanted a dress that went to the knees. The dress fit somewhat loosely and I probably should have gotten a smaller size. I am very narrow hipped and the dress design makes my hips look fuller which is fine for me. I love the jacket which is very versatile and can be used with other dresses and blouses. It is the perfect little black jacket. The purchase was almost worth just the jacket alone, although the dress is very pretty. I actually thought I had ordered the fuchsia black color shown in the presentation; however, after receiving the Teal/Black color dress, I rechecked my order placed and saw that it said the color teal/black. So that is the only thing I would suggest is to make sure that the color you want is added to the order before submitting it. The teal color is nice so I decided to keep it anyway. I just wished that I had more carefully checked the order's details before submitting since I was looking forward to wearing the fuchsia black color. Either way, the dress and jacket are well worth the money.
Have several of this style dress and bolero from another retailer, so I knew I would like the fit. Really liked the color and pattern on this one, and was not disappointed when received. My staff commented on how classy and pretty it was the minute I walked through the door. Very comfortable while very professional - that is a rarity. I am tall, so I also appreciate the length - grown women tend to want skirts/dresses that fall at or slightly below the knew. Shorter skirts have to be constantly adjusted when sitting down and getting out of the car.
