Two pieces, very large

This dress comes in two pieces. The under layer is a soft white tank dress, and the top layer is the pretty, silky one you see on the model. It runs very large- I ordered my normal size, and should have gone down one, maybe two. The top layer is see through, so the line of the tank dress was very visible at the neck, which I didnt like. I didnt wear it, but may try again with a smaller size.

Didn't wear

I didn't realize that this is a two piece dress. It's a bottom slip dress and a top silk dress. Although the look of supposed to be boxy, it was very unflattering on me. Maybe order a size down? You can also see the neckline of the slip through the top dress which I didn't like. Beautiful colors and fabric but it just didn't work on me.

Easter Dress

Wore this to church on Easter Sunday and to work. Pretty colors, comfortable and fun to wear. I wore it with tights and a cami underneath because it was cold.

So pretty! A great spring dress

I wore this dress for Easter. It was so flattering. It did run a little big, but I didn't mind because I had a baby in November and I'm still not back to my normal size. I got a lot of compliments. I seriously considered purchasing.

Spring has sprung

Very comfortable and stylish dress w/ pockets. I wore it as a top with high waisted jeans and as a dress. It also comes with slip for added protection. I loved it.

Pretty, soft, light, and oh, so cool!

Be warned, this dress is not structured or slim fitting, so if you are trying to highlight your shape, keep looking. If you are trying to play down some extra pounds or a baby bump, this dress is amazing! I really want to buy it; here's why: The pattern and colors are beautiful and chic. The drape is perfect, probably because the lining layer is viscose and the outer layer is silk, both with some elastane, so there is a little give. The fabrics are also so comfortable and light, making this perfect for warm weather. On top of the comfort and pretty factors, this dress is exceedingly versatile. I've worn it with sneakers for casual friend lunches, with heels for a dinner date, and with slides and a blazer for an interview. I felt perfectly dressed in all situations. I'm sure that it could be styled in even more ways, perhaps over leggings, or belted... Oh, and it has pockets.

Arrived without slip

Cute dress but it arrived without the slip so I couldn't wear it. I don't own anything that will work under it and the armholes are too big to go without something underneath. Total bummer.

Light and cool for summer.

I wore this to work. It's long enough to wear without leggings (I'm 5-8 with a long torso so dresses in length fit me like a 6' person and I pretty much consider dresses long tops). It's 2 layers, comes with a white comfy stretchy underdress and then the sheer-ish top. I wore this on a ridiculously humid hot day where I had to be outside and it's very breathable and looked as good at the end of the day as it did in the morning (unlike my melted hair and make up). It also has pockets, which is a plus, but because the fabric is so thin I didn't feel like I could stuff my phone, keys, and wallet into the pockets without it looking stupid.

Loved this dress!

Favorite rental so far. This dress is beautiful, comfortable and versatile. I was worried it would be too big, but the 4 fit perfectly. Just "oversized" enough. Great for day to night. My only complaint is that it wrinkles fairly easily, but that was easy to overlook.

I could wear this everyday and be happy

This is totally my kind of dress. Loose and simply cut but with lovely details. Those details include a knit slip that comes with the dress and little internal snaps to keep the slip straps in place. The print is so beautiful (like Helen Frankenthaler's work) and just made me so happy. I would've kept it much much longer but I spilled coffee on it and wanted to get it cleaned ASAP for other lucky wearers!

Comfy, colorful, loose

This dress felt great on, not sure exactly how flattering it looked. I wore mostly with nude flats for professional casual days at work. Colors are amazing. The dress itself is a little sheer so I wore a slip underneath. Easy to wrinkle, by the end of the day I had horizontal create lines all over from sitting and driving. Nice and cool dress too, great for warm summer weather.

Wore this several times

I wore this comfy dress with separate soft dress under it (that comes with the rental) for two lunches, out with hubs and to work in a pinch too. Really like the silk, the pockets and the comfort.

Don't think twice... order this one

I wore this to work and received compliments in every meeting and also got random text messages with compliments from people who saw me walk by.... it's a hit! I'll probably purchase. I would size down one size.

The fit of the dress was very current, but it was the most comfortable I've felt in a dress in a long time! Nothing right, nothing clingy. Absolutely loved it!

Gorgeous pattern, too long for short gals.

Loved it overall. If I owned it, I would have it hemmed. It ran quite long which forced me to wear heels to balance. Ran very slightly large as well. 135 and 5'1" not sure if the 2 would be too small compared with the 4 I rented. Beautiful print though.

Lots of Compliments

I didn't expect the number of compliments I got on this dress! I wore it work, and it was really comfortable. It's light and breezy, and comes with a slip so nothing shows through. I liked it a lot, but it's definitely a warm weather piece.

Truly beautiful item!

It's a loose cut so go a size down. It still won't be fitted. I wore with black tights, short booties, and a white fur vest.

Very pastel, very baggy

In the photos, this dress look so bright and summery but in reality I felt like I was wearing a nighty. It is very baggy; I added a belt to give some shape and the colors made me look washed out. Not a winner for me.

Unfortunate dress...

This was huge and had a slight sheen that made it look like a hospital gown. I didn't wear it, which was a shame because I loved the print and colors.

Excellent quality, colorful and comfy

It's a pretty dress, but kind of looked like a big silk bag. Loved the pockets. I'm 5'4" and it hit me at the knees. Probably would be better on a taller person. Would be nice for a summer wedding or graduation.

Cute and comfy for work.

Size down one size for more shape but it is a boxy fit, so expect it to be a bit shapeless. Still very fun to wear due to the colors, I got lots of compliments. It needs a statement necklace. Great for a breexy spring day at work or a Sunday tea/brunch date.

Borrowed this for a housewarming party. But then kept it for everyday wear.

It's on the larger size as the style is meant to be billowy. I'm 5'1" and I thought the length was great at right around the knees. The dress is beyond comfortable. You get the look of a delicate fancy dress and the comfort of something you can Citibike around in.

Beautiful pattern

Pattern is gorgeous in real life too. I wish I had sized down though since it is meant to be loose fitting it really hung off of me. I used a belt on it to make it a little more complimentary on my form.

Comfortable and loose fitting

The dress is a very loose fit, I normally wear a 4/6 and this 4 was pretty baggy. It was ok. It is sheer so you need to wear the slip (I LOVED that it was included!) and it's nice to find a dress that you can wear a regular bra. The print is nice and pockets are always a plus. Good for work but I don't think I would wear it to go out at night or for a special occasion.
