Perfect for a Work Event
Wore this for a work presentation & dinner. Perfect mix of professional & cute! I did find the sleeves a little rigid and hard to extend my arms all the way up, but other than that, great!

Runs VERY big
I normally wear a 4 or 6, but I was swimming in this 4. Couldn't wear!

Too stiff and heavy
I usually adore any and all Kate Spade, but the fabric on this one is VERY stiff and heavy. Didn't love it. Made it hard to move around, plus the skirt was a little fuller than I was expecting and not the most flattering.

Great for any occassion
This dress has cute details like the round cutout in the back, the bow in the back, and the illusion of 2 layers of fabric. However, there is no stretch in the material. I am 5'3" and between size 6-8. My arms are a little big. The arm holes were too small for me and I noticed there is no stretch. So best to order a size up. Otherwise, this dress is adorable for short or petite figures in the spring and can work for any event. There is a little bit of pink in the pattern but very faint.

Really wanted to wear it, but couldn't make it work
Stunning dress. I loved the fabric and pattern, but it was just too small.

Loved this dress
The fabric is heavy and perfect for a winter event. My only complaint was the "poofy" nature of the waist line. I felt it made me look much larger in that area.

Beautiful colors
I wore this dress for a baptism and then an evening out with my husband and felt elegant the entire night. It was also very comfortable and flattering on my pear shaped frame. I loved the soft pink that is in this dress and would definitely recommend if you're on the fence about this one. I usually wear a 4 or 6, and the 4 was just right in this dress. Such a beautiful dress!

Cute Party Dress
I rented this through my unlimited subscription. Cute style, but fabric results in a lot of volume. Unfortunately nearly 3/4 of the skirt hem fell loose, so I did not wear the dress.

Not great for petite torso
Loved the fabric and style of this dress, but I should have known better than to try to fit into a regular size Kate Spade dress that is so structured. The waistline of this dress fell lower on my short torso than intended (belly button vs waistline) and the result was an awkward bulky shape accentuated by the bold print of the fabric. It might have been better in the 4. Luckily this was the back-up and my primary dress was much better on my petite frame (Parker Red Trace.)

fun, but classic
very tight fit across the arms and shoulder, so don't wear if you need to raise your arms a lot

Cute fun dress for cocktail reception - tight arms
Always love Kate spade! I'm usually an 8 and occasionally a 10 in Kate Spade, and this fit well through the body but the arms were tight. If your arms on the bigger side, note that this might be a problem. The length was nice - not too short even though I'm 5'9". Overall, a fun pick!

Perfect dress to wear to the theater.
Wore this out in NYC to see The Crucible. Comfortable to sit, walk and run around the city in. Chic and flirty, nice but not too serious. Love the slightly higher in the front hemline. Good for petites.

A-line cut is so flattering! Bow on the back is super cute too!
I own this dress in a different fabric/print. I actually thought I was getting the same fabric that I owned, but just in a different print. This material is textured which I didn't notice in pictures - it is really nice. The cut is very flattering - and the bow detail on the back is a cute surprise - i would definitely recommend the dress!

Beautiful fabric and colors.
The dress fit very nice and fell perfectly..the only con to this dress is that it was very hard to get the dress off by myself. Beautiful fabric and colors.

I wore it to a baby shower, and it was perfect for the occasion.
I did think the ribbing and inside material of the dress was itchy. I also was not expecting the mesh overlay--not that it was bad, I just wasn't expecting it.

So cute
Bit of a full skirt but fun. Minimally high low skirt was still work appropriate. Very comfortable and flattering defined waist.

I wore this to a bridal shower brunch thrown for me by my sister and future sister-in-law.
The dress was adorable, and I got a ton of compliments! The fabric is so pretty in person, and it has pockets! Even though the pattern is navy and gray with touches of pink, it was a cold day so I wore it with black tights and it looked great. I normally wear an 8 or 10 in Kate Spade so I ordered both; I was notified two days before the shower that the 10 wouldn't be shipped because it had come back damaged, so I was glad the 8 worked! This dress runs a bit large, but one warning: the arms run small and have zero stretch. The skirt definitely has more body to it than the picture on the model shows-it's short and a little poufy, but because it hit me at my natural waist, it was very flattering and comfortable. The keyhole back is another cute touch, and I was still able to wear a regular bra with no problems. A great dress I'd rent again!

Got a lot of compliments!
Wore for my sons baptism. I got a ton of compliments even from strangers after church. I decided to go with the larger size because I'm a little larger up top after baby. Would definitely rent again.

Loved the bow detailing on the back! I received many compliments and would rent it again!!
I absolutely loved this dress. The fabric was perfect for the fall weather, the fit was great, other than being a bit big in the chest, and the length was great for my tall frame. Overall this dress was great and I would definitely would recommend it.

A little heavy/clunky.
The dress was a little bulky for my taste--it has a shape of its own, and that shape was too big/not super flattering on me.

The dress was cute, but definitely ran large.
I originally ordered a 4 and it swallowed me whole. The 0 I ended up with had several rips/tears in the overlay. Other than that, the dress was cute. Definitely a heavy fabric.

Flirty and Fun!
Kate Spade has done it again! This dress is the ultimate flirty and fun girly girl dress. The pattern is fun and it being black and white gives is a sense of sophistication! The sleeves and full skirt make for a playful and fun silhouette. Kate Spade runs a tad bit big, so I usually size down for my back up. One this to keep in mind with this style is that the sleeves and shoulders are a bit fitted, I am broader across this area so my true size was the best fit as the fabric does not have any stretch.

The dress was extremely photogenic!
The fit is true to size. It definitely has a poof to the waist line, which makes for a fun and flirty silhouette. The fabric is THICK, and for a summer wedding in Charleston, it was a bit warm, however I received compliments all night on the dress. I will warn you that although the dress is easy to get on, it is very tough to get off! The arm holes are tight and I needed my sister to help me wiggle out of it at the end of the night!!

Beautiful fabric but way too scratchy
I wore this to work with flat sandals. Gorgeous dress with a mesh-overlay and kind of a 3D effect to the pattern that's only visible in person. It even has pockets. I got many compliments at work. However, the fabric is very stiff and uncomfortable. I could feel the scratchiness/stiffness of the fabric around my arms and at the waistline. I tried to tough it out, but I was completely and utterly miserable. I was in an hour-long meeting, and internally, I was screaming "PLEASE, GET ME OUT OF HERE" while tugging at the dress and slumping over to try and get my mind off the fact it was trying to eat my skin. I went home, and changed, and came back to work. Someone mentioned, "That's not what you were wearing earlier..." so at least the dress was memorable? Lovely as the dress was, I will never rent/wear this again.

Beautiful dress!
I got this through my Unlimited membership. I wore it to work and received so many compliments on it. The fit was great everywhere except for the arms. I do have broad shoulders though, but I wasn't able to have full motion of my arms without the sleeves feeling really tight. The back of this dress is adorable!

Rented this dress for my law school graduation. I got so many compliments! I felt girly and chic.
The fabric was different from what I expected, but beautiful. The fit is great for ladies with a little waist and bigger hips. It was very flattering for a pear shape. I had a little trouble with the zipper and needed help getting the bow secured at the back of the neck (hook and two snaps).
