- Expensive at full price
- Fabric A Little Noisy
- Hood not detachable
I really love this jacket/dress!
I'm 5'2" and around 117 pounds and I got the Small. I probably could have gone with the XS as the Small is a little roomy, but thanks to the ties at the waist the fit is customizable. And besides, I think I will wear this as a jacket more often than as a dress, so the extra room will be useful over other clothes. It's super lightweight, and compresses to easily fit in a backpack or shoulder bag in case the weather turns a little cool or rainy.
The Ink Stripe color is a lovely dark vintage blue, and the puckered fabric and subtle stripes gives it a nice textured look.
My two minor reservations are the fabric makes a swishing noise when you move, and I think the Chrysalis would look smarter as a dress without the hood, but the hood is not detachable. These are minor quibbles, I do love the Chrysalis and I'm thinking of getting a second one in another color while they're on sale! Expensive at full price, but Nau is a 'green' company and worth supporting for their excellent sustainable and recycling policies.
- Was this a gift?:
- Not A Dress - Too Short
- Great with leggings
I was looking for something that was light-weight for summer travelling.
Was hesitant about the price but found it on sale so I quickly snapped it up (was higher priced elsewhere that I saw online).
I've not gone on my trip yet but have worn this once out.
Love a lot of things about this item (I hesitate to call it a dress because I'd never not wear something underneath).
I think that this will become a 'go-to' item in my wardrobe.
