Happy Halloween! This sheath dress is from Emerson Rose, which may or may not be the brand that Nordstrom intends as a replacement for Classiques Entier, which before that sort of replaced Semantiks. (They mix up their house brands from time to time — the last time this happened, I don’t remember whether there was overlap between the two brands or not.) Emerson Rose has been around for a year or two, and the pieces are generally office appropriate. This dress, which looks great, does have a bit of an exposed zipper, but it’s not horrible, and it certainly isn’t the full zip like we noticed at the end with all Classiques Entier dresses. People usually either love or hate these kinds of necklines — I kind of like this one, but in general a lot of them remind me of the ’80s movie Soapdish (which is amazing, by the way). It does sound like they’re having fit issues with this — that’s why the reviews are low — but it’s a great sheath dress for $149. I like the three-quarter sleeves and the neckline and the hemline, and note that it’s not ponte; it’s a suiting fabric. It comes in sizes 4–16 at Nordstrom for $149. Stretch Sheath Dress
Here’s a plus-size option.
