I wore this dress to an Easter lunch and I got so many compliments on it! However, even though I wore it for Easter, it is still casual enough that I will be wearing out for more than just "dress-up" days. The material is so soft and very good quality. Even though it is light and thin, it is still a thicker material that you don't have to worry about issues being able to see-through or getting chilly in when indoors. I couldn't be happier with it! BTW, make sure to pay attention to the sizes and model sizes. Thankfully, I did, or I would have normally probably gotten a medium. I'm 5'3", 34D, but have bigger hips and wear a size 6 in jeans...I ordered the small and it fit perfectly and wasn't tight at all. Also, I was worried about being shorter and whether the cape would be too long, but I wore 3" heels with it and it was perfect with about an inch or so "play". I wouldn't be able to wear flats with it, but I don't think I would want to with dress anyways.
