Loved this dress! I received many many complements. Super cute! Looks great with a tan.
Roomy dress, very comfortable. I would have gone with the size zero but the zipper was a little hard to get up. Great, loud color that stood out.

Color that pops!
Great color - was complimented on it all night! I have a large rib cage so always need to go up a size or two for the zipper. I wore the 10 because the 8 had a stain on the front when I received it. The 10 fit well in the bust/ribs but the bust/straps were a little big. Overall, I would definitely recommend this dress for a spring/summer event.

This little Kate Spade number was the perfect dress for a fashion conference I attended!
Absolutely LOVED this dress! The color was amazing! The fit was amazing! Everything was amazing about it! I wore it to a fashion conference and literally received compliments all day! The only con to this dress is that it wrinkles quite easily, but it still looks fabulous. This dress can be worn for so many different occasions, I definitely recommend this rental!

The wedding photographer loved it!
This dress was perfect for the evening wedding I just attended this last weekend. Bold and beautiful and simple. I received many compliments during the night and this dress was so comfortable! I felt this ran large in the bust/chest but fit well at the waist. If you're tall this might be too short for you.

It's lime green, not yellow!
I rented this for my rehearsal dinner, but couldn't wear it because it ran too large. You should know that it is not the color you see here, it's lime/neon green......it's not yellow! I had purchased a turquoise necklace to wear with it, but if I had worn it, the necklace would not have gone with it. The dress ran big around the middle and I looked like I was swimming in it. I ordered a size larger than my normal size as my back up, but should have ordered a size smaller as my back up. The dress is very cute and will keep it in mind for another occasion!

I got so many compliments on this dress at a wedding. I just had a baby and this dress hid my tummy.
The color and material are beautiful! If you're more busty I would order a size up. Other than that, this dress is a winner!

Great dress vibrant color
Cut so it covers fat pockets near armpits. Received many compliments. Usually an 8 or 6 but 8 fit like a glove. Everyone loved the dress. Completed the look with statement earrings!

The color of this dress is phenomenal. I had strangers stopping me to compliment my dress. Gorgeous!
This dress is quintessential Kate Spade to me with just the right amounts of whimsy and classic. I initially had ordered a sz 0 with the 2 being my backup but ended up being able to try the size 2 on in a store and was swimming it in so I changed to ordering the 00 as my back up and boy am I glad that I am. I tried on both the 0 and the 00 and although the 00 was a bit tight around my chest I felt it was the better fit overall. I opted not to wear a bra as it is a thick fabric and my 32DD were a bit snug. I am petite and it can be a struggle to find a dress that isn't too long. This dress was the perfect length on me. If you are tall you might find this dress to be a bit too short. Moral of the story. Order a sz smaller then you think you should.

Beautiful color, perfect fit!
I wore this dress for my 50th birthday party. The theme was a Spanish dinner with "colorful cocktail" attire. Felt like belle of the ball. It runs a bit big bc I never wear a 00. Received so many compliments - and was called "Samantha from Bewitched" and "Jane Jetson" bc the dress skirt stands out on it's own! Such a statement dress I am glad to have rented it bc would probably not have an occasion to wear something like this again. Love this dress!!

TONS of compliments and PERFECT fit! Loved it!
For anyone debating whether or not to go with this dress, maybe because it's a bit of a bold color or whatever, DO IT! I am 5'4", 128lbs and am nearly flat-chested, and this dress fit me like a glove (I wore the size 2). I received compliments on it all night, on not only the look but specifically on how well it fit me. Usually I have trouble with v-neck dresses because I don't fill them well, but I had just enough room for a strapless padded bra and it looked great!

This dress fit like a dream and I felt amazing!
This was my first time using Rent the Runway and I had a great experience! The customer reviews helped me gage if this dress would fit and as soon as I zipped it I knew it was perfect! I wore it to a charity fundraiser that I chaired. I was running around all day and I was confident and comfortable...plus, this dress has pockets!!!! I received so many compliments all day! The color is vibrant, but does have a little lime tint to it. I am a short girl and the length was great on me and the dress made my waist look great. I am sad I have to send the dress back!!!!

Loved this dress! The color really pops and the material is so nice!
I wore this dress to the ESPY Awards for ESPN, and I got so many compliments. I usually wear a size 6, and I ended up wearing the 4 (thank goodness for the free 2nd size!). Even the 4 was a little too large for me. I would recommend definitely going with a size down from your usual. The material is so nice and the pockets are perfect! I would rent this again for sure!

This dress is such a lovely color! I got compliments all night long, and I loved everything about it
The only problem I had with this dress was that it was a little on the short side (I am 5'8 and in the heels I was wearing I was 6'0) so I had to be careful to not bend over, or my butt would be exposed. Also, I have a large chest, so if you're like me-small body with large breasts, then this dress can be tricky. I'm normally a 4 in dresses, but my boobs were a little constricted in this. I still loved how it looked on me though!

Fabulous color... and it has POCKETS!
The dress was amazing! I wore it to a fall wedding in Charleston and got compliments all night long, many from complete strangers. It was the perfect length for me, as I wore heels to the ceremony and eventually changed into flats at the reception. Because I'm a bit short, dresses tend to be too long on me when I wear flats, but this was perfect! I usually wear a size 8 and although the dress fit fine, I would have preferred a size 6 in this dress. I would recommend renting your regular size and one size down as your back up. Overall, this is a great dress! Fabulous color, easy to dance in, very flattering, and not to mention it has pockets!

LOVE THIS DRESS, would purchase it if I could! The color was AMAZING & I got rave reviews all night!
This dress definitely runs small, usually I'm a size 0-2 and even though I wore a 0 in this, I think the 00 would have fit a little better around my waist and bust (I added lots of padding to fill it out). This dress is very comfortable for sitting in and hits in all the right places when standing -- oh and did I mention that the pockets are perfection and very convenient! This dress aslo seems to be made for short girls! Usually I have to buy petite dresses in order for it to not look like I'm swimming in a dress, but the length of this dress was just perfect for my 5'2" frame. The color was amazing -- not quite yellow but not quite green and the exposed gold zipper in the back added a nice little touch of flair. I wore this dress to emcee a pageant and it's safe to say that this dress was a standout (just the right mix of a pop of color without being overwhelming) with my large drop stone earrings and stoned bangle bracelets. Would I rent this dress again? Absolutely!

I got compliments on the dress everywhere we went.
Just like many of the comments stated, the wow factor is in the bodice/neckline. The size 2 fit as well and could have been a more conservative/less revealing choice.

Love.
I have ordered from RTR before and have been nothing less than in love with the company and procedures. Being a Kate Spade junky, I was thrilled when I saw this dress was now available and quickly reserved it for Homecoming. Two days before my event, I received an email saying that it was not returned and would not be available. I was beyond thankful for the RTR compassion and sincerity, as they immediately sent me a replacement dress. However, it was just not the same. I ended up not wearing the replacement dress, but I am very impressed with RTR's customer service and will be sure to use RTR again.

I felt like a million bucks!!
This was my first RTR dress and I was SO happy with it! The dress is stunning!! Definitely size down! You will stand out in the crowd and have strangers compliment you!! It does get a little wrinkled but who cares! I also rented the coral looking cuff, these sparkly earrings and a clutch to go with it. Wore pink platform sandals for another pop of color! I wish I could buy this dress!! If you are on the fence about it, just go for it!!! You won't be disappointed!

Eye-catching dress, perfect for a spring/summer event
This dress was perfect! I ordered down a size and it fit exactly how it should. It's great for a petite frame (I'm 5'3") and the hem hit a little above my knee. I felt very sexy, while remaining classy. Plus, it had pockets which are fun. I had several strangers tell me they loved my dress. I strongly recommend renting this, but suggest ordering down a size. Thanks RTR!

Great dress for a spring formal occasion/wedding
Looooved this dress - very comfortable and fit true to size. The color is more of a hybrid between neon yellow and green. I wore the zero because I believe my backup 00 size was accidentally swapped with a size 2. Regardless, the 0 was perfect - could be a bit too snug for bigger chested ladies. It was a little tight for me around the ribcage as well, but it wouldn't have looked right if it wasn't tight in the chest/rib area. Was a little worn at the neckline - the hem at the neckline seemed like it was starting to come out as well as the neckline stitching seemed like it may tear after a few more wears. However, all these notes were minor, and it was a great dress!

SUBLIME/BOMB/SPECTACULAR
I wore this to my sorority's formal and it was perfect for the occasion. The dress fit wonderfully and was super fun to dance in. I wore it with sparkly Kate Spade chandelier earrings (which I also got from RTR) and strappy snakeskin heels. I highly recommend it!

Color, texture, fit. All perfect
I'm 5,8 and 125lbs, my bust is a 32 DD. I wore a size 2 in this dress and the fit was perfect. The color, texture and weight of this dress can best be described as light and fresh. It's a fun, classy and sexy dress all in one. It complimented my skin tone perfectly. A must rent!

Soooo many complements!!
This dress was amazing!!! I received soooo many complements! It does run a little snug in the rib cage area so the 2 would've been uncomfortable for a sit down rehearsal dinner. All the reviews of the color were correct so I was expecting that it was not a traditional yellow. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was the lining was hanging down past the hem but I quickly tacked it up and I could tell the dress had been worn before but nobody could tell and that's all that matters. I really hated to send it back but I know I can rent it again. Rent the runway is my new obsession!!!

Absolutely loved this dress and got so many compliments! Warning-it is NOT yellow! It is definitely citron. It has a lot of green in it. It's still such a fun color and perfect for a wedding. I adored this dress. Very flattering too

So pretty, order in advance if you want to rent!!
This dress is so unbelievably beautiful, but I couldn't wear it because it was too tight in the bust. I'm usually a 6-8, but they only had a 4 available. I really wanted to try it, so I ordered it hoping it would fit. Of course it ended up not fitting. I tried ordering it again for an upcoming wedding, but it was already booked for that date as well. So basically if you are interested in renting this dress, order it way in advance!!!!
