Amazing dress!! So fun and SO many compliments!!

Loved this dress!! The cut is super flattering, skirt details are adorable and flirty, the color is so fun and fresh!! It is a lot of green, so I paired it with a navy vest and blazer and gold belt. It definitely needs something to accent your waist... the green belt that it comes with, is just kinda blah. Overall it was fantastic and the exact reason I love RTR.... make a statement, standout and send it back!! Way to memorable to keep and wear again!!

No matter what you do it will wrinkle

LOVE this dress, very cute and fun. Fit is great, love the tie at the waist, great color. ALTHOUGH it wrinkles like no other and you can't get them out. The material is a thicker dress shirt material, and I don't know if the one I received was starched without being pressed or what... but the thing just stays wrinkled. Luckily I think people thought it was supposed to be that way, several compliments. I'm 5'3 and the length is great but definitely cannot bend over.

Pop of Color!

I chose to wear this without the belt. It was still flattering and flowed nicely without it. The fabric doesn't breathe easily.

The MINT GREEN color is amazing & was great to pair this dress with the same color MARC JACOBS bag.

Alexis has always been one of my favorite designers and I love that RTR always has them as a part of their ongoing collection. #Alexis

Thick beautiful cotton!

I love Alexis. Per usual this Alexis dress is short especially if you are curvy. This material is really wonderful. I didn't wear this dress as I was not comfortable with wear the seam hit my rear. It hit right where it "pops." If you have a booty you know what I mean. That wasn't too bad but this dress has this flaps that are just a bit odd. If you have more of a straight figure then it might be a better fit. I am bummed as it is really nice looking. I normally wear a medium. I was concerned that this dress would be too straight of a fit. While it did fit, I just didn't like where is hit on the skirt part.

True to size for Alexis

I always size up in Alexis. This was a M and I am a true 4 and it fit great. Perfect spring or summer dress for work. Lots of compliments from the students (I am a professor). Professional and fun. A little on the short side but not inappropriate.

Unique, fun dress

Flattering and fun but big in the chest. Size down if you're small-chested like me.

Very forgettable

The dress is not suitable for big breasted women. It gapped open at the boobs. Bummer. Super wrinkly. The material is supposed to scrunch, but the ruffle flares weren't pressed.

Cute, comfy, and work-appropriate

I was afraid an XL would be too big but it was great! I think if I had gone smaller it would have been too short.

cute and comfortable

If you're thinking about sizing up - Do it. I usually wear a large and sized up to XL and the fit was great. the length was great for work on my 5'0 frame. it could be a little short for taller people

It's ok

Let's just say I'm glad I didn't buy this dress... def better in theory (in my mind) than when I wore it. Have to be worn with the belt or it looks funny. Interesting frills on the skirt but still kind of whatever.

Did not fit cute and the colors weren't as cute in person

Did not care for it. Needed to be ironed or steamed.

I tried it on. Wearing to work tomorrow.

It's super cute! I love it! May buy it. I'm usually a 4 but as others have mentioned this does run one size small. I have boobs and the 6 is perfect.

Business like dress, but still fun

This dress was super fun to wear to a work St. Patrick's Day party. I would say it definitely runs small. I sized up for the M and the buttons were still pretty tight in my chest area. Definitely let me stand out!

So understated!!

Not sure why this dress isn't as well received as it deserves. This dress is amazing -- it was comfy and flattering and unique! I accidentally returned the sash but even without it the dress looked adorable! I am 5.4" and the length was great too. 10/10 recommend!
