Rated5out of5bykfhowellfromCute, Comfortable, & Convenient 4 TravelI ordered this dress a month ago and just got it this past week (it was back-ordered). It looks just like the pictures and is very cute/stylish which is hard to find in a good multi-use, travel-friendly dress. The color is definitely a guava/dark coral, not a bright red so do be aware of that. I like it though because it's a little softer on the eyes and easier to wear with many neutrals.
I bought this dress for an upcoming June trip to Europe, but I do plan to wear it for other occasions as well. I was looking for something stylish that could be dressed up or down with accessories and that would be wrinkle-resistant and wicking--this dress has all of these things!
I'm a college professor and I actually wore this to work the other day and then to a gallery opening later that night (with a few more accessories). I got compliments at both places which confirmed that this was a great buy.
I am 5'-9"and about 140-50 lbs. I wasn't sure about what size to get so I ordered the Medium and it fits well. Slightly loose in the waist so I may have been able to wear a Small, but I can easily belt the dress for more formal occassions when I want a closer fit. The looser waist will probably be better for hiking/travel.
I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone looking for a practical but still very attractive addition to their wardrobe.

Rated5out of5byPR hiker girlfromSo prettyI bought this dress in the guava color. The color is beautiful. The dress fits very well and is flattering. The dress has a lining inside which is wicking material (polyester) but the outside is mostly cotton.
I think I could pull this off for work if worn with a cardigan sweater or blazer. Definitely taking on my trip to Napa this summer. It will pack well and isn't too dressy for the laid back style of Napa. A bit pricey but worth it.
