Super cute but not right for summer!
I think I jumped the gun on ordering this in my Unlimited shipment, because while it was super cute it's just too hot in August in DC to wear a sweater dress! I also think it runs a little big. I am usually a M, sometimes S, but went the M this time. I felt like I was swimming in it and I hope it's available for me when the weather cools down and I know to get the S instead.

This was my first Unlimited piece and I loved it! Beautiful dress and fit perfectly!
I ordered an XS which runs true to size. The not too big up top and hit above the knee. It's made of a knit/sweater material but not too bulky, good Summer/Fall transition piece.

Very cute dress.
It runs a little on the large side and it was too big for me to wear but it's a very cute and classy dress for a party or work event.

Great retro style!
I loved this dress! I wasn't sure what it would look like on but it was classic. I received tons of compliments all day. The fabric was a great quality knit and it fit nicely. It wasn't too tight but still had a little shape to it. It's perfect for work or a daytime event. You could probably dress it up for the evening too.

Cute sweater dress!
I rented this dress as part of my Unlimited shipment and decided to wear it to work and then to a girls' dinner. It went perfectly from night to day. The material is sweater material, so it's a little stretchy but doesn't stick to you. The size was great, I'm usually between a M/L and the M fit perfectly. It's also great for ladies with a large bust (I'm a 34DDD) because the material is loose and stretchy.

I rented this dress through unlimited, so I ended up wearing it to work. Great fit, and long enough that I didn't feel uncomfortable without tights. Will definitely be renting again.

Perfect Fall Dress
I loved this dress so much I bought it! It's almost a sweater-like material, thick but not woolen or bulky. It's ideal for fall weather! It runs on the larger side, so I sized down and it worked great. The pattern is bold but does not overwhelm. I wore it with a black leather moto jacket for a NYC rooftop party. Highly recommended!

several co-workers told me "I can't stop looking at you"
Fun to look at, fun to wear. Has an awesome optical illusion effect. The material is soft and super-stretchy. Not really fitted at all but still falls nicely.

This was my backup for an art show, and I ended up wearing it to church. Paired this with black tights and black boots, and was very comfortable all morning!

Comfortable dress
A cute, sweater knit dress. It was comfortable and fit well. I am not giving it a 5 star because it is missing the wow factor to make it an outstanding dress.

Great fit!
Love love love this dress. So comfortable. For a shift it hung perfectly and was not bulky at all. The material is a great sweater-esq fabric that was soft and not heavy like a typical sweater dress. Would definite rent again!

Cute!
I liked the pattern on this dress and the sweater material is nice and heavy. Definitely a winter piece. The dress appears boxy but still gives a nice shape somehow. It's definitely more casual. My only warning is that it's a bit short on me, though I'm 5'10". Great everyday dress.

The dress is very comfortable. However, I would have been a little more comfortable in the way it fit if I had rented the Large.

I got compliments all night. It was great for the occasion!
I rented this to wear to a 60s mod themed MardiGras ball. The pattern and cut of the dress made it perfect, and honestly if I took off the costume boots and the 60s hair, makeup, and jewelry I could have worn it to church the next morning and still gotten compliments. Classic and cute. I thought I would be a large but the medium had plenty of room. 4 stars instead of 5 because the picture made me think it would be more vibrant than it was. It's more muted than it appears and is a sweater dress material. Hard to tell from the model photos.

Cute but boxy
I liked the comfort of the dress; however the dress was too long for my height which probably attributed to the dress making me look boxy and probably combined with the pattern of the dress. I ended up keeping my jacket on it all day during work as I didn't feel that confident in the dress on its own...although I did enjoy wearing it for its color and comfort - if that make sense. The 3 stars is primarily due to the dress not complimenting me very well on its own.

I haven't had so many compliments at work!
Truly one of the best dresses I've worn. Very cute yet very comfortable. Would totally rent it again. Just know that it runs big. I should have rented the XS instead of the small. The fabric is stretchy. The small is getting a tiny bit worn though so I'm not sure how many more rentals they will get out of it. If I could buy it I would.

I wore this for work.
I got one size bigger than I normally wear because they didn't have XS available. It was bigger on me, which was true to size, but was really comfortable to wear and really cute.

More form-fitting than the photo
I was hoping this would be a more structured shift dress, but the sweater material is more flowy and less thick than I was expecting. Cute print and enjoyed wearing once to work, but I wouldn't rent again.

runs very large
i'm typically btwn a 2 and a 4 and got the S. it was much too large, even for a shift dress. it also stretched as time passed so because a bit unflattering. the pattern was just ok. the knit material did keep me warm though. overall, even if it fit well, i likely wouldn't rent the dress again since the pattern just didn't do it for me. hit a little above my knee. overall just looked a bit like a sack

Something different than my normal fit & flare style
I really liked this dress, and for someone who has an hourglass figure, sheaths aren't always the right look. This is a knit, and lays really nicely to give a 60's mod vibe. I wore it with black opaque tights and ankle booties, and received a lot of compliments at the office. I would definitely rent again.

Nice dress for work, runs big.
I wore M. It wasn't flattering because it fit large. The colors are real nice. I would rent again. Next time, I'll get the small.

Runs a little big
I did not end up wearing this, because it was too big. I thought the jersey/knit material might mean I should get the small instead of the xs, but I should have gone smaller. I have narrow shoulders, and the top of the dress gaped out at the neck. Cute print though, and would have been great for work!

Got a lot of compliments - most people thought the pattern looked a bit "retro".
I didn't read the details carefully and was surprised to see that it was knit. Very comfortable to wear all day.

Unflattering print
The print and cut of this dress was very unflattering on me. It is otherwise a well made dress that I am sure would look better on someone taller.

Shorter than expected
This dress was okay, not quite as cute as it looks on the model. It's definitely a thicker sweater-like material and is way shorter than I pictured. Not too short for work, but too short for me to wear heels with it, and I am only 5'5. Colors not as vibrant in person either. Still, the fit was comfortable and flattering.

Casual chic
Dress fits great, and love the little detail of the gold zipper in the back. This is very much a light sweater dress. The pattern is bold -- not something I would want to own, but enjoyed wearing it to work for several presentations. As it was chilly that day, paired with black opaque tights and heels.

Comfy and cute Friday work dress.
Got the medium as I usually wear a 6 and it was on the looser side. I docked a star because the fabric wasn't what I was expecting (but my fault for not reading the reviews.)

Stylist Review
This dress has a fun 70's feel to it. The material in great to transition from summer to fall and would look great with tights. The material is also great as it is a sweater material. I highly recommend renting!
