Vibrant indigo and cerulean evoke a seaside feel.

pretty caftan”

Lovely print and color and dress is very very comfy but be aware it runs HUGE!! I am a m/l and ordered the medium but should have gone w the small. Even after washing and drying on high heat it fits more like a caftan or moomoo. But because it is comfortable, shall keep and wear around the house for summer.

My New Summer Favorite”

Each fabric in the patchwork is a work of art. The pockets are roomy and the dress flows nicely. I look forward to those hot summer days when I can wear this all day and into the night.

Exactly what my summer wardrobe needed”

The color really is just as lovely as in the photo! I was looking for something bright and fun, but also something that wasnt too short or revealing. It feels almost impossible to find a summer dress that isnt see-through or has anything other than spaghetti straps. With this dress I dont need to worry about bra straps showing, and Im not worried about wearing it in sunlight. It has pockets (awesome!), the skirt is nice and flowy., and the fabric feels nice. All around a lovely choice to add to your wardrobe!

Not the same.”

I have 3 of these dresses that I ordered in the past, and this new one is not the same nice quality. The fabric of this new one is heavier and rougher and doesn t feel as nice as the other 3. This is so disappointing, especially because the price has gone up.I won t be buying anything else from Novica.
