Sometimes the reviews turn out to be true. I really think this might be the best travel dress ever, and I got it for a ridiculously low price. Cheaper than in the US -- now that is something! When I bought, it was on sale for $59 CAN.
I can wear it as a shift, without blousing it, and it's just about knee length. I can blouse it up, and while it's short, I don't think it is indecent. Or (on a different trip, not as hot) I could potentially wear it bloused even more, like a little tunic over slim shorts/ leggings.
It works with a denim jacket (not that I will need that, where I am going). It has pockets. It even has a zippered credit card pocket. It can be washed in the sink and it will not wrinkle. It has modest armholes so I won't feel exposed.
I think this was a super practical and useful purchase and I love the colour!
If anyone is going someplace hot or living someplace hot, I highly recommend.
