A fun party dress that will make you feel comfortably pretty.
I took the advice on ordering a size down but wish I had done the opposite because the dress is very fitted around the waist. The rest of the dress fits very comfortably, the material feels a bit padded so it's perfect for a winter party. The skirt is full and I love how it swings! Added pockets are a plus.

I really like the dress on you! I have an early May wedding to attend in Sacramento, Ca and the temp. could possibly be in the 80's or higher. Do you think the material is a bit heavy?

This dress is really beautiful, but it didn't fit my shape.
Don't get me wrong, this dress if really pretty. The print is interesting, and the fabric has a sateen finish. On the right person, it would be gorgeous. I'm just not that person. If you have a larger chest and thicker middle, know that this dress is cut narrow in those areas. I've worn another kate spade in the same size, but this one seemed much more narrow. The fabric has NO GIVE, and zipper is a bit difficult. That being said, the length is GREAT for taller girls, and I LOVE the pockets.

Classy & Quirky makes for a great NYE dress!
This was the perfect dress for New Year’s Eve. It was comfortable, classy and something different from the typically black New Year’s Eve attire. The pockets are a wonderful perk and allowed me to always have my lip gloss nearby. This dress runs very true to size and there is no stretch in the fabric. I would recommend ordering your regular size and select the size larger for your extra dress…just in case.

Loads of compliments, easy to wear, beautiful fabric!
Let me begin by saying, Kate Spade dresses are not for large chested women. I knew that going in so I ordered up. It was very fitted thru the rib cage area. I have narrow hips, but I can see that it would be snug on a more pear shaped girl. I am glad I rented it instead of buying it. It was fun to wear one time, but wouldn't become a staple of mine.

How was the length? I'm about 5'3". I'm going for a knee-length dress for my wedding brunch, which this dress looks in the picture, but then the text says it's knee to tea-length on a 5'6" woman!

As always, great customer service
Really pretty fabric. Easy to dress up or down. Very slimming, hits at the narrow part of waist. It was supposed to arrive on Thursday and got here on Wednesday. Love that.

Perfect dress for a fun party!
I loved, loved, loved this dress. It's a little tight in the bust, but that's standard for me and dresses. It was also a little long in the waist, since I'm on the short side, but I just tucked it up a bit and added a sparkle belt. Between the belt and a black tuxedo jacket, it was a really fun and unique outfit. Highly recommend!

I loved this dress. It is very feminine and perfect for a night of dancing!
It fit me perfectly...very fitted through the torso, fun flare at the waist, hit slightly above the knee. I loved the pockets...great place to stash a lipstick.

This dress was very cute. Snug around the upper waist/bust, but the rest was very comfortable.

Perfect dress, wonderful experience & totally comfortable, well worth it!
I certainly could have worn the 8, but chose to wear the 10 just because it was a smidge more comfortable. I am a 36B in the bust, with a 31 inch waist. The style of this dress was complimentary to my figure. I found it very comfortable and enjoyed the pockets. I normally wear either an 8 or a 10, depending on the designer. I wore the dress to a business dinner that my husband was hosting and received several compliments. Along with the dress, I wore sheer black tights, patent leather shoes and topped it with a beaded cropped cardigan. I am very pleased with my first experience with RTR.

The dress met all my expectations. It fit well and looked great. i was worried that it might make me look "wide" since I already have "full" hips but it did not. Highly recommended!

Fun and Professional!
I rented this dress for a work party. It fit me perfectly and was very comfortable. The length of the skirt and the neckline were very appropriate for a professional setting, but the print and cut are so flirty and cute that it was still very fun. I was helping to run the party, so the pockets were a very helpful surprise! I loved renting this dress, and I'm sure it'll be the first of many fabulous Kate Spade adventures for me!

Very true to size. Be careful if you have a large chest area. It fit me perfect as a size 34B.

This dress looked really great in person and in photos - the structure really helped it pop.
Everyone was raving abotu this dress - perfect choice for my bridal shower. I have a very busty hourglass figure, and everyone kept telling me how skinny I looked. I think the structure in this dress really accentuated my waist in a positive way, and made for better pictures than some of the more flowy dresses I've worn for other bridal events. The pockets were also a nice surprise! The only small downside was that you could tell the dress had been worn a lot - the fabric was a little on the fuzzy side. But for pictures that wasn't an issue and I don't think anyone would notice unless they touched the dress.

Lovely dress for any occasion!
I wore this to my rehearsal dinner and it was beautiful! I received lots of compliments. I typically wear an 8, and this was a bit snug on the torso area. I'm top heavy, and I think the dress made me look a bit too busty for the occasion. Still a wonderful dress!

I never got to wear this. They didn't have a backup size and the size I got was absurdly small.
The bodice is tight, no give, and none of the reviews mentioned how small it runs. I'm usually a size 8 and I got a size 10 to be on the safe side and I could barely zip it over my bust. The seam down the front would not lay flat and my boobs looked like a shelf. Unflattering. I spend money for nothing, because I couldn't wear it and there was no backup size.

Perfect dress for the occasion!
I normally wear a size 4, but I really wanted this dress and the size 2 was the only size available on the date of my event. I went for it, and it fit! I will say the top half of the dress does not have much give, so it would probably work best on someone with a smaller bust. I would definitely suggest a necklace. I rented the necklace on the model, and I LOVED how it all pieced together. I would rent this dress again.

Got this dress as a backup style - so cute I had to wear both!
Adorable dress, in such pretty colors! I wore this for my wedding rehearsal, then changed into the kate spade sequin dress for the rehearsal dinner! This dress has an adorable silhouette, and it pretty true to size. I had read other reviews stating that it's tight for busty girls, and I found this to be true as well. There is a seam that goes straight down the middle of the front of the dress, but if it is too tight in the busy the seam will curve right under the bust line. I tried on the 8 as well, but everything else about the 6 was perfect so I just wore it and noone noticed the seam. Super super cute girly dress!

Great dress for a night at the symphony!
This is a great spring dress. I loved the pink and black together. It is thicker layered material so it was warm enough with a shrug and tights for mid-western April weather. As several other reviews have mentioned, it's tight through the rib cage which is why I went with the bigger size. Other than that, it was pretty perfect!

Perfect for Easter Mass and brunch with the family. Classic styling.
The dress is very fitted around the ribcage, but easy around your stomach, due to the flare. It worked great for my size, shape, and height. I loved it.

The fabric is lightweight, but has nice structure. It hugs you in just the right places without being tight or uncomfortable. I wore this to a bridal shower and received many compliments. You will look and feel like Grace Kelly!

So easy and I got tons of compliments!
The top fits tight, around the chest area. I had a 2 on but it wouldn't zip. It was almost like my back was too wide for the 2. I had to go up to the 4.

Pretty dress but not what I was expecting
I was expecting this dress to be a shiny satin-like material. Colors and fabric is more muted and I thought it almost made it look dingy. The dress is obviously high quality and made really well but I just didn't love it.

So comfortable!
I felt great in this dress. The material doesn't give much, esp at the top, so if u r bigger breasted, you might want to size up. I usually wear a 4, but ended up wearing the 6 because of my cup size (D).

Lovely dress, but might be too big for a petite gal
I loved the look of this dress! It was perfect for a wedding weekend's festivities. The color was spot on to the image online. I also loved having the pockets so I didn't have to carry a purse around. The skirt was fun and flared out a bit. I got lots of compliments as to how the dress was very pretty. The only thing is that it was a bit big for a petite gal like me. I'm a bit small chested (barely an A) and found that the chest area was gapping a little even though the waist fit me perfectly. I did feel like something was missing from my waist though and added a cute skinny belt to finish out my outfit. Also, the shoulders flared out too much; I felt like it covered too much of my shoulders. I must have narrow shoulders. I'm 5'3", so the dress hit right at my knees. It swung and moved beautifully. It a lot of fun sitting down because the dress would fan out perfectly. Overall, still a lovely dress. Would recommend it for both daytime or nighttime affairs.

I'm about the same size as you (5'3 and 32 barely A) with narrow shoulders. Any chance you have a picture of what you looked like in it? Your review is super helpful though. Thanks!

Kate Spade for the win!
I rented this stunning Kate Spade dress for a charity event held at a country club in Dallas (hence the carpet in the picture, country club chic). As par for the course, I received so many compliments on it! It was perfectly conservative given the environment and fit very true to size. I have zero curves so this dress might not work for someone with any sort of chest (how I am so jealous of you if this is the case). I paired this with my favorite pair of Manolos and matching Kate Spade ring. It was a total win!

Fun and sophisticated for my bridal shower!
I'm so glad I rented this dress! I ordered a 4 and a 6, but the fabric really doesn't stretch so the 6 was just right. The material is a bit on the heavy side, so beware if you're going to an outdoor event in the heat. I was definitely sad to send this one back!

PERFECT fit!!!
I've never worn a dress before that molded so perfectly to my body! I wore a 0 which fit true to size. I did wear my bombshell add 2 cup sizes bra and this dress made me so curvy (which I hardly am being a marathoner). I was totally in love with the fit and POCKETS!! I was a little less enthused about the color pattern (darker than the picture made me think it was).

Great for day/evening wedding
I wore this to a daytime church ceremony and evening wedding reception. Was perfect for the event. I usually wear a 4, but felt it looked too bulky (and the lining was showing at the bottom - not sure how to tell RTR about this issue?), so I tried the 2. It was much better, but definitely snug around the rib cage. I also rented the necklace that they show on the model but really didn't care for it, so added a black belt instead which broke up the pattern a bit and highlighted my waist. Overall very happy with the rental.

Classy!
I wore this dress for a tea and loved it for the occasion. I usually wear a 00 and the 00 I rented fit perfectly. The dress was a little longer on me than the model. I loved that the dress had pockets and the unexpected rose gold zipper in the back. You can also wear a regular bra with this dress which is a huge plus. Material felt a bit "padded" as someone else mentioned. Overall the dress was great! I paired it with black heels, pearl accessories, and black/blush fascinator. I also ended up wearing a sweater because of the temps.

Sure bet dress – lots of compliments
Wore this to a symphony concert and reception. Material is nice – thick enough it didn't wrinkle and the dress has a lining. The only negative is the lining peaked out at the hem. The bubbles on the pattern are light colored, but the background is a darker color. The darker background showed up a little more than the picture. A-line skirt left lots of room from the waist down and was flattering. The top is snug. Received lots of compliments. One stranger in line for the bathroom said they liked the dress and asked if it was a vintage dress.

Perfect Easter Dress!
I rented this for Easter (RTR is soooo much better than shopping!) I wore it to church where I got lots of compliments. I rented the Lilly Pulitzer necklace too. Liked it so much that I bought the necklace (from a retailer) afterward. The fabric is beautiful, with a slight sheen. This dress fit me perfectly!

Comfortable and Classy
I am very petite and I always worry about the bust and width being too big for me, but the 00 fit great. This isn't my first Kate Spade so I knew what to expect but the fabric was lighter than other dresses I own. The pockets are always convenient. i loved this dress overall

I was so tired that day so thank goodness I didnt have to think about accessories etc. i got the necklace the model had on to pair w it.

Better in person
I wasn't able to wear this dress, and I was completely heart broken. The dress was so fantastic on, but just a little too snug in the bust. When I finally lose the rest of this baby weight, I will rent it again because it's simply wonderful.
