The color was outstanding, the pictures really don't do it justice. It really was a more rich, purple-like color and in pictures it looks deep blue or indigo. But I'd just like to say in person, it is STUNNING.
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first experience with RTR and it was fabulous! Everything was on time and perfectly packaged. Plus, since it was for NYE 2012, they gave a few add-ons like a party hat, sample perfume and double-sided fashion tape, which was a very nice, cute touch! The only thing I will say is that the dress was larger than it appears on the model. When renting, I would recommend keeping in mind that most designer dresses are CUSTOM made for the buyer. So it's not going to look identical for you, as it does for the model. I was shocked I was more comfortable in the size 0 instead of the 2, but it just was a lot more slinky and less fitted than it appears in the picture. It was still a gorgeous dress; but I'd also recommend to anyone renting for the first time, to go with a dress cut and fit that is typically flattering for you/that you've worn before, so you're not trying something brand-new and then surprised if it doesn't look the way that you'd like ... but maybe that's a no-brainer. Essentially, I loved my experience, just wish the dress could've been a bit more fitted on me and have less of the bunching ripples on the side (like it appears in the pic) but that would only be accomplished if I had it tailored. Will definitely rent again!
