Sweet, Colorful, Playful and Loaded With Compliments!
I rented this to wear to a luncheon and speaking engagement with Make-A-Wish foundation, and from the minute I walked in the door I began receiving compliments that never stopped through the day! This dress is pure southern charm and perfectly tailored. The fabric is soft with a hint of stretch for a lightweight, comfortable and sophisticated look that's perfect for so many occasions. Take note as others with larger chests have reviewed and size up if you are worried about fit. :) www.crockpotempire.com

Cute Kate Spade dress!
The dress is typical Kate Spade- Cute, great colors, quality fabric and nice fit. My only complaint and I hate to call it that is that the fabric was a little wrinkled when I got it and it was a pain to iron with the pleats on the skirt. Lots of compliments though!

So pretty I don't want to send it back!
I ordered this my first week with unlimited and was not disappointed! It came very slightly wrinkled on the skirt, and without the belt (I was emailed before it shipped to let me know and make sure that was okay). Thankfully I had a leather belt that worked well with the color scheme. The fit is true to size. I found a slight issue with the buttons at the chest gaping, but barely. Also, IT HAS POCKETS!! Zipper was slightly difficult to get up, and I couldn't for the life of me manage to hook the hook directly under my armpit, but thankfully my husband was able to assist. Having a hard time not just keeping this one, but will definitely rent again!

Pleats are a hassle but it's adorable
Fit great. I had to iron it when I got it. Got several compliments. But all in all didn't think it was worth the hassle to own. Decent rental.

The dress was very cute but too small for me.
Style is very cute. The length seemed like it would be perfect for just above the knee. I am 5'4". Bust size 36B and weigh about 125. I could not get the dress on. It was my first rent the runway item. I'll get better about designer sizing as I go!

Great summer dress
I wasn't too crazy about it, it was lovely but not wow. My husband on the other hand thought it was the best dress I've ever rented - girly, slightly nerdy and cute.

Fun dress
Fit great with a side zip. For me just past the knee. It came later than I planned so I ended up wearing it to run errands in NYC. I have the unlimited plan so it was fun to run around the city and I received a lot of compliments. Should have taken a picture!

Was a great dress for my daughter's baptism.
I had ordered the 10 and 12 but the 12 was unavailable. I had to make do with the 10 and wore a white bralette underneath because I couldn't close the dress all the way over my bust. They also forgot to send the belt that went with the dress but you couldn't tell that it was missing.

The design, cut and color are absolutely beautiful. I was thrilled with this dress!
My bust caused the buttons to be a bit too fitted on the front of the dress.

Comfortable, but simply not flattering
True to size and very comfortable (with pockets!), but it just doesn't do anything for ya. Might be cute for Easter brunch or something, but it's too poofy for work and just pretty "blah."

Great spring dress!
The fabric is nice and thick and the colors are very pretty in person. It fits perfectly (the chest isn't too tight, even with the buttons up the front) and looks great. Really looking forward to wearing it to work!

I wore it once to work and got a lot of compliments! I'm wearing it to my friends mock-trail as well
The fit is gorgeous and the length is perfect for a tall lady like me. It does come fairly wrinkled so I had to spend a good amount of time steaming it. But it didn't wrinkle easily for me after extended wear. Such a cute dress! Would be perfect for a brunch or day at the park!

Rented this for Easter dinner (also work it to work next day!)
This fun Kate Spade was the perfect pastel-spring dress for Easter dinner. I liked it so much I wore it to work the next day! The fit was great, a little tight in the chest for more well endowed women, but great shape everywhere else. It's 4/5 star only because it was delivered with a couple tiny spots on the front of the bodice.

Flattering and festive
Very flattering fit with the belt to make waist look little. Picture is kind of funny but shows that it wears well even chasing a toddler for Easter. Wore it once to work and got tons of compliments that it was springy. And wore it to church on Easter and it was perfect!

Casual yet polished
Dress fits true to size. Figured in the rib cage so watch for that. Pockets make it an easy wear anywhere. Buttons up the front can make it fit odd if you are big chested. It almost wanted to pucker on me. White doesn't need a slip and fabric is heavy enough it stayed unwrinkled all day. Belt isn't long enough to make the perfect tie like the picture but overall great dress.

Fun one.
I really enjoyed wearing this and received quite a few compliments. I wore to the office with sneakers and a long sleeved white tee underneath because of the chilly weather.

Such a flattering fit! Cute, smart, and playful!
This dress runs a tad on the small side. I usually fit somewhere in between a 2 and 4 and I wore a 4 for this party. I had to wear a very low profile bra (no padding, or pushing) in order to feel comfortable in the top potion. The arm holes are a little small, fyi. Though, it really did fit nicely and looked great! Also the sash is attached.

I love the fun colors and the belt.
I was a less than impressed with how this dress arrived. It needed steamed or ironed before wearing.

A fun daytime dress that was a bit worn.
In terms of the style, fit, and color of this dress, you can't go wrong. The fit seems flattering for many body types and and the striped pattern is fun and stands out in a good way. The cotton material is nice and thick so there are not problems with the white being see-through. However, when I received the dress, it seemed a bit worn and was missing the belt that was supposed to accompany it. I thought the dress looked much better with a belt, so I'd recommend adding a white or brightly colored belt. Also, I'm not 100% sure it was cleaned properly since there was a bit of blue tape (the kind that dry cleaners use) next to some noticeable stains on the skirt portion of the dress. As a result, I didn't wear the dress. Despite this, the dress still gets 4 stars since it is a beautiful, versatile day dress for summer that will get many compliments.

Great comfy dress for a bridal shower
I rented this for a friends bridal shower. I got so many compliments! The best part was the pockets so I did not have to worry about carrying my purse around. I am glad I had the 14 because it was a little tighter in the chest than expected and I am happy I had the extra room. Like others have said, it wrinkles easily so by the end of my event the bottom of the dress was pretty wrinkled, but otherwise a great dress!

nice fit, pretty dress, large stain in the breast area- so I didn't wear it. I was frustrated because I didn't notice it until I put it on to go out.

Fun colors
A really great summer dress. I wore this to work. The material is thicker and sturdy. Very true to size. I love the pleated looked and that the dress had pockets. My dress had the tie sewn onto it. I would preferred to have it removable. The only con was it arrived wrinkled and wrinkled pretty easily.

Hello Kate Spade. I think I love you... and your summer dresses!
This fun little summer dress was perfect for an afternoon tea party. The fabric is a nice cotton poplin (?) that has a little bit of stretch in it. Which is good for those of us with, ahem, a few curves OR LOVE HANDLES. The top does fit snugly but because of the quality fabric, you don't get that awkward Forever-21-top-puckering-between-buttons look. And no one wants to be popping out of their dress at a tea party, thank you very much. The only tricky thing about this dress was the side zipper. It was a tough one. Like grit your teeth call for help tough. I finally used a white crayon on the zipper teeth to make it zip easier. Because nothing was going to stop me from wearing KATE SPADE to the tea party. This dress also has pockets which is also super duper handy for storing your cell phone between tea party photos. This dress does get a little wrinkly, so get ready to whip out the ol' iron upon arrival. After that PINKIES UP!

Perfect casual dress!
This wasn't really my style at all but I rented it for vacation. It was an awesome, comfortable, fun look! Highly recommended for casual occasions. Do be wary that the chest fits snugly so if you are above a B cup, you might have issues.

what's not to love?!
This dress is sooooo cute! I wore it for a casual business meeting in the park and I felt both professional and playful. It did not ship with the belt, but I didn't miss it too much (although it probably would have added the finishing touch). Note: this is a little tight in the chest area, so if you have a larger ribcage or the girls are a little bigger, you might want to size up for comfort.
