Perfect for my Derby Night
I needed a dress for a 'Night at the Races' fundraising event. This was the exact style I was looking for and it had good reviews! I did order a size 2 and 4. When I got my dresses I only got the size 2 bc the other one wasn't able to ship. Luckily the size 2 fit perfect (phew) they sent me 2 others dresses which I didn't really like at all and they were size 4's and too loose. The one I wore was good quality and I will look for more dresses by this designer. The material was thicker than I expected which was nice. I received so many compliments on my dress :)

The color and neckline was what made the dress so special and unique!
Wish the waist line would have been a tad tighter but with a padded strapless bra, I made due! Color was bright and looked great with a tan. Minimal accessories needed with this one! Get some hot high stilettos and get on the dance floor!

fun dress!
Got this dress for Keeneland horse race and it was perfect! I got a lot of compliments on it. It was a bit brighter than what I thought it was going to be, but it was fine. This designer in general runs small- the size 4 fit perfectly. I also wore it was Easter church and again was perfect for the occasion.

Awesome birthday dress!
Very true to size! Got a lot of compliments on it. It seemed a little short though.

Very Bright!
Fit true to size. I'm a D cup and wear between a 4 and 6 but the 6 fit better in the bust. Its a little short, but was a fun dress and easy to accessorize.

Bright, fun, flirty dress to warm up my engagement shoot on a brisk winter day!
I've found this designer runs small, so I went a size up from my usual 6 to and it fit perfectly. The cut was super flattering, and the pale yellow color lit up all my professional photos exactly how I wanted them. Recommend this dress for a spring fling, wedding or night out.

Cute dress and a pretty color!
This was a pretty dress and the fabric is thicker than I would have expected. It runs short (I'm 5'2 and it was short) so avoid breezes and dropping your things. Super cute though and I would recommend it!

Stand out dress
This dress runs a bit small. I normally wear a 2 or a 4.. depending on the designer. I went with the 4 on this one. The 2 was extremely tight in the chest. The color is more of a lime green then a pastel yellow in my opinion. Still a very pretty color. Wore it to a Kentucky Derby themed charity event. It was perfect for the occasion.

Wow this yellow dress made a statement!
I wore this dress to a charity event and dress code was Cape Code. I received tons and compliments and loved that I was the only one in yellow. The Kendra Scott necklace I rented was the perfect statement piece. Fit was true to size. Can't wait to rent agin!

Not my favorite - but a beautiful dress on the hanger!
Great color, fabric and well made overall - it just didn't work on me. I think the skirt was a little too billowy.

Perfect color for spring!
Love this dress! Previously rented a similar style in light blue for another wedding. Elizabeth and James uses the best fabric! It is thicker and heavier than it appears and has a little bit of stretch so it hugs your body perfectly! & the color is amazing! It looks different depending on the lighting, but it gives you a nice looking tan whether you have one or not.

Awkward fit. Probably best for straight and narrow bodies
Loved the color and material. Top cut was cute. The length and hit of the waist was awkward. The dress felt weird on and photographed terribly. Not for curvy women.

Cute Neckline, but a bit Tight Up Top
Material was heavier than I expected. Loved the color, cute skirt and neckline. I was a bit smooshed in the top, and I only wear a B cup. but I think it still looked good.

The dress is very neon yellow. Great statement color on a simple cut. You'll definitely stand out in a room. :)

Another winner by Elizabeth and James. Their dresses are made of high quality fabric and fit great. I received many compliments on the color especially under the dance floor lights where it practically glowed!

Gorgeous neon!
I loved the fit and flare aspect of the dress! The neckline was a little bit strange to me (especially with bathing suit tan lines) but overall I really liked it.

Great for a summer wedding! I loved the cut of the top and the color. I would recommend ordering a size up for your back up because it is very fitted in the chest and a little short. Great dress!

Cute cut and great fabric
The only reason I gave this dress a 4 is because it was really short. But if you are okay with that than it is perfect! The fabric is awesome and it is the perfect shade of yellow.

I wore this to an outdoor wedding.
Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate so I had to wear a jacket over this dress the entire time. It was my favorite dress i have rented thus far! It was so pretty, the color is light yellow, it fit so well on me. I wore a strapless bra and it stayed the entire night.

Love love this dress!
I wore this dress at a rehearsal dinner for a formal wedding. I LOVED it! The color is kind of a neon yellow/green in person. Kind of like a tennis ball. Surprisingly pretty for such a weird color. The neckline adds a little interest to a simple, clean, but still flirty look. I got so many compliments. Also, it fits like other Elizabeth and James dresses, which is tight and non-stretchy but generally true to size. If you have bigger than a mid-sized bust, you're gonna want to size up.

Actually ended up not wearing it as the wedding was postponed due to Hurricane Matthew.
Fit like a glove to my frame... small on top and wider on the bottom.

This dress unlike any others that guests were wearing. It was bright and unique!
The fit was true to size. I loved that the dress was bright. I wore it for a summer wedding and it was so easy to find accessories to enhance the beauty of this dress. No one else at the wedding was wearing anything similar to it and I loved that!

Pretty dress, different fit
I wore this dress to a late September wedding. I was hoping it would be warmer, but fall had arrived in Philadelphia. The dress was fun to dance in as it twirled. The fit was a little weird though. The size 0 fit better up top but was very short on me. The size 2 was loose up top and puckered but gave me the length I needed. The top was just a little awkward but was fine. I rent Elizabeth & James a lot and this dress was fine... Not my fave but not the least fave. It was just fine.

Love! Love! Great dress
This dress fit perfectly. It flares out little which I love. I wore this to a September wedding. I thought the yellow would be to summery but in Houston it worked, lol! I got tones of compliments. It was comfortable to dance and eat it. This is a great choice for anyone.

Very fun pretty party dress
Very pretty light yellow in person. I didn't end up wearing this because it was just a bit too snug around my chest so I wore a different dress I rented also. It does run a bit small. The size 0 fit but it was very tight around my chest. The size 2 fit well but just a little too tight still in the chest. Not too short. Has a very fun cut.

Great summer color, amazing neckline!
I wore this to a beach wedding. The color was amazing for summer on tan skin- is a little more lime green tint than bright yellow. The neckline of the dress is amazing- I rented the statement necklace also shown here. I rented the 4 and 6 and although both fit, the 4 was a little tight in the chest (I don't have a big chest). The 6 was overall looser so I wore that one, but it could have been a bit more tailored in at the waist. Amazing dress, great height- would rent again!

Comfortable & fun!
Absolutely loved this dress for a summer wedding. The color wasn't too overwhelming and it pairs nicely with a statement necklace. I'm only 5'3" so the length was perfect for me, but I could see it maybe too short on someone taller. It was also incredibly comfortable to dance in!

Fun color and great quality!
I absolutely loved this dress! It's a very bright yellow and the material is nice and thick. The neckline was my favorite part and it looked great with a bold necklace. I definitely want to rent more styles like this! I typically wear a size 6 but after reading the reviews to size up, I'm glad I got the size 8.

Compliments all night long!
This was my first RTR. I loved the fit of this dress because it shows off the shoulders, was slimming, and had a little bit of bounce to the bottom. Just enough to minimize a bigger bottom but accentuate the waist. It was a little shorter than I was expecting but I was still able to dance, just had to be careful with bending down to pick up my son. The color was great! I got so many compliments about the color and style. My husband even asked if I was able to buy the dress! I would definitely rent this dress again again!

Perfect for a summer wedding! The only part that runs small is really the top. I do not usually have issues is that department but I just got some petals and wore it without a bra. I would wear it again!

Bright, fun summer dress
I wore this dress to a welcome party at a wedding. Like other Elizabeth and James dresses, it does run small. The 2 fit, but I ended up wearing the 4 because it wasn't as tight and was longer. The 2 was extremely short and I was wearing heels. The thick material makes it comfy and the bright color is great for a summer event!
