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 dress- but dirty so I didnt wear it
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.

Fit well. Heavy material and needed to be ironed. But it was cute. Someone said i looked like a schoolgirl. That was meant as a compliment.

Felt so cute and colorful!
Loved this dress. Was a little tight in the boobs so I didn't button it all the way up. Tied the bow a little to the side. Got many compliments. Loved it.

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.

Love it!
I loved the style of the dress, so I ordered it to wear to a summer time bridal shower. Fit true to size. I read a lot of reviews prior to ordering that talked about it arriving sans belt. Well - the dress I wore had the belt sewn onto it, which was a little annoying because I didn't have a choice of where I wanted the bow (front or back). The backup size came with no belt. The dress came ironed, but the material is very easily wrinkled. Doesn't matter - still so cute. RTR has yet to disappoint!

Great dress for summer
I love this dress so much that I ended up buying it. This was a really comfortable dress to wear to work with heels or sandals and or during the day or out and about on a casual day with sneakers. I wore it to work and also out museum hopping one afternoon. I got many compliments on it. It also has pockets which comes in very handy.

This colorful dress was easy to wear. True to size and very comfortable. I decided to tie the belt in the back for a slightly different look.

Cute Dress for summer days
Wore this to a daytime party on a Sun and tried to get another wear out of it at work on Monday. Should have checked the weather report beforehand because it rained and I felt silly. This dress is for sunny summer days! It's eye catching and fun, but sure does have a lot of fabric in the skirt. I'm not usually a fit & flare fun, but this felt good and was fun to wear. Pockets were awesome. Struggled with the side zipper a bit. I'm a 38C and I think anything larger would have trouble with this one.

Great summer dress
I loved the bright summer colors of this dress! It fit true to size and was a nice change for my work wardrobe. I think it would work for an afternoon social event as well. My dress did not have the belt as pictured on the model. Also, the dress got very wrinkled throughout the day. The picture is from the end of the workday.

So many compliments!
I don't think I have ever received so many compliments on a dress worn to work. At first I was hesitant to wear it because of the wrinkles. I tried ironing it and while I was able to press some of the pleats and remove some wrinkles, it wasn't perfect. Still, I wore the dress and I'm so happy I did. Many people stopped me on the street to compliment me! It was comfortable and vibrant. Will rent again, wrinkles and all.

Cute and Versatile
Wore it to dinner on vacation with flat sandals. It was cute and comfy. Unfortunately, there was a stain/mark on the shoulder that I didn't notice until I had it on. It's also bad to wrinkle, so plan to iron!

Perfect casual summer dress! True to size.
This dress is so adorable and I really loved it - I got it to shoot for my blog (www.bellemeetsworld.com) and to wear to dinner with my family and to lunch with a girlfriend. It is very comfortable and breathable for hot summer days. I don't think it will translate into fall, so order it now while you can! The belt is not detachable so if you want to switch out the belt like I did, you can't. Fabric can wrinkle pretty easily but the cotton is stiff enough that it's not too bad.

This was one of my favorite rentals so far with my unlimited subscription. I wore it to work one day and drinks for a friend's birthday another day. I got tons of compliments, and everyone noted that it was so perfect for summer. I love the way Kate Spade fits my petite figure.

Bright & Cheery!
I love this dress. Very well made and gorgeous colors. I got so many compliments and wanted to keep it! I would say it's true to size, but larger busts may have some issues with the buttons gaping. I wore a very simple bandeau bra that helped with that.

Perfect for summer
Colorful, pretty, and very flattering. I got lots of compliments. Fits true to size, but top is a little snug if you're very busty. Wrinkles easily but pleats help cover it up.

Favorite rental yet
This dress just made me feel like a million bucks. As with many things I rent I wish I could own this! It was so comfortable, vibrant, and flattering. Perfect for a fancy engagement party. Received tons and tons of compliments. This an item I wish I could wear every day, it makes you feel like a sophisticated rainbow bright! As for sizing, it was a tad big so you could probably size down if needed.

Busty women, size up!
I really enjoyed the style of this dress, but ended up not being able to wear it, due to the fabric gaping at the bust. I ordered a size 12 and am a 36F. The waist and all other measurements were fine, but I just couldn't get the fabric to lay flat over the bust. Also, be aware you will need to steam or iron the dress when it arrives. It wrinkles during transit.
