Great work dress!

I love this dress! It's a heavier wool fabric, so perfect for fall or winter. The white line is actually a slit - while it comes high, it wasn't inappropriate. European clothes tend to run a bit small, so I sized up to a 6/42 and it fit perfectly. It did arrive with a slight odor, but that faded when I removed it from the plastic bag and let it air out over the weekend. I would rent this again in a heartbeat.

Loved it!

This dress was perfect for the office. Material is thick and lays well. Slit up the front is interesting without being too revealing. Loved the button detail on the shoulder. Overall fit was great. Very comfortable. Considered buying it but tried it with tights and didn't look nearly as good as bare legged. Limited wear in the winter if can't do tights!

This dress is so beautiful. The slit in the front is pretty high though.

A dress with possibilities!

Well-made dress with a quality thickness and warmth to the material. As others mentioned there is a slit in the front of the dress which I thought added a bit of edge to an otherwise conservative look. I wore a collared, long sleeved ivory silk blouse underneath the dress for a contemporary preppy style. Received tons of compliments and made the dress versatile for colder weather! Would rent again

Valued at $1k, but you'll feel like a million bucks...

This dress is a show stopper. Think Jackie O and Michelle Obama fab, its classic and modern at the same time. Wow the crowd and expect compliments.

Not For Shorter Girls

The overall fit of this dress was true to size. However it is not meant for shorter girls. I'm 5'3" and this dress came down far past my knees. Disappointing since I was hoping to wear it for a business meeting at work. Overall the quality of the dress was beautiful! I only wish I could have worn it.

Great dress with nautical flair!

I rented this dress through my unlimited subscription and it did not disappoint. It is a sturdy boucle fabric with great nautical details (e.g., leather belt at waist, anchor buttons at shoulders.) Great for fall/early winter. A bit heavy for spring. Would rent again!

Thick fabric

It's a nice dress but really really warm. The buttons look a little fake and the fabric is very thick. It is a nice dress for cooler temperatures.

Slit too high...

I intended to wear this to work... good thing I had a back up plan. The slit was a bit too high. Perhaps because the dress runs small. Didn't get a chance to wear it. It was also a little itchy...

Winter work dress

I rented this for work, but didn't end up wearing it. It's really think material. Great for fall/winter but too much for spring. Also, it pulled around my hips making the slit feel too revealing. I would need to go up a size.

Great dress--thigh high slit!

Fits great. The material is heavier than I expected so I don't think I'd wear it on a hot summer day. Also, the slit is super high onto the thigh--think Angelina Jolie's famous leg photo! I pinned it to make it work appropriate.

Thick, thick material

Living in Florida, I chose very incorrectly with this one. The details are beautiful and the craftsmanship is exceptional, but I couldn't wear it because of fabrication. I will definitely choose this during our very short winter.

Jackie O inspired

Looks very sharp and comfy. Heavy wool by light enough to wear in summer. Fits true to size. Slight bulge/gathering around midsection if sit or walk. Otherwise awesome and got looks all day.

High slit

Slit runs up much higher than expected; I had to pin it to make it work appropriate. Very thick material - ok for a crisp fall day but would not wear in the summer.

Nice winter dress

This dress is a really nice thick wool so is great for late Fall/Winter. It did run big and was especially big in the top so you might want to order one size down. I added a leather jacket to define my waist. It goes great with boots and I do love the white strip in the slit as it adds a nice fashionable touch.

Sophistication Personified!

This dress is simultaneously classic and fashion forward. It made me feel taller, slimmer, and very put together. It is also a bit large for size, especially in the waist - I feel like the fit on me would have been ideal had the waist been 1.5-2" smaller, especially since the belt is attached and can't be cinched any (important note: unbutton the belt at the front for getting in and out of the dress, the button hole in the back is, I believe by design, not large enough to get the button through).

Cozy and classy.

This dress is incredibly warm-it was perfect for a cold day. It is well made with unique details that I enjoyed. I wore it to my nieces music recital, but would wear it to work, church, or lunch. I think it ran a tiny bit large but not drastically.

Conservative

As others described, this is a thick material (I think it's wool) so best worn in winter with tights or in the fall. But, it's just an Average dress -- I cannot believe it's an $1,100 dress. The buttons look cheap, the fit was kind of baggy, and the length wasn't the most flattering; it went to the bottom of my knees (I'm 5'5") but with the high slit, is strange since the rest of the dress is such a conservative look. RTR also sent me an extra leather belt - one was attached to the dress but they also included one in a baggie, which makes me wonder if another one of the dresses out there is missing it's belt.

Classy

The material is super thick & very warm. Good for winter. Runs a little big and the slit comes up very high. I didn't feel comfortable wearing it to work without tights because if the slit.

Good work dress. Conservative but not boring.

Dress came with the tag still on it. Very subtle black/navy herringbone pattern with some cream accents at buttons on left shoulder and slit at right thigh. Flattering and professional and very comfortable. I forgot to take a photo, but did get compliments. :)

Awesome work dress!

This is a great everyday dress for Fall or Winter. The material (wool) is nice a thick and the slit up the side adds something out of the ordinary to the dress. The dress had a bit of an odor from the dry cleaning - I think it had something to do with the material of the dress, but I didn't notice the smell the second time I wore it.

I got lots of compliments on this dress. Women in my office definitely knew it was high quality.

It is very well made. Some of the women in my office came over and wanted to touch the fabric, which is a very rich wool. It is totally appropriate for work, and very professional. It is conservative, but not flashy.

Full of class with a bit of edge

Reading through reviews is very important when ordering Euro sizes. I ordered the 42 thinking that it would fit best. I would compare the 42 to a large size 6. There was room to spare but overall, very comfortable! The details make this dress! It was a heavier stretch woven wool/knot (black and blue mini pattern). It was perfect for Christmas Eve service.

This dress is a thicker material than I was expecting, but that worked well for winter. I put a black long-sleeved top underneath and it made for a great work outfit.

Classic with a twist.

Loved this dress. great fit and a fairly heavy material which hung beautifully with no cling. Style has enough interest whilst still being office appropriate. Some people said the slit was too high but I had no issues with it worn with nude tights. Will rent this again.
