LOVE

Love this dress. Can be dressed up or down, substantial high-quality fabric and gorgeous vibrant colors. Perfect fit for my small bust (and no stretch), so may not be a good choice for larger chested ladies.

Material and fit are not what they seem

The waist was very high causing it to be almost empire waist looking. It was not flattering to my shape because of this. The material is as also cotton which I didn't expect. My 7 year old daughter told me I looked like a little girl. That was enough feedback for me. I requested a replacement dress immediately and felt amazing for the event.

Beautiful fit and pockets

There was a small tear in the left side seam. Not noticeable and did not affect the pocket. Would have considered buying it if it did not have the tear.

The waist on this dress is cut super, super small! I normally wear a Kate Spade 0, but I couldn't even get the 2 partially zipped. So disappointing!

A great springtime dress!

Loved the bright pop of blue from this dress! Perfect for Easter - church-appropriate without feeling dowdy. I'm usually a 0/2 and was glad to have chosen the 2. It was a bit tight in the chest and I'm not at all busty!

Great Dress for a church Event

We had our son Baptized at 3 months so I was looking for a dress that would be flattering while still hiding the extra baby weight and be church appropriate. A lot of the dresses I have previously rented have low neck lines or are a little short. I discovered this one and while reading reviews discovered several other costumers rented this dress for church events. I was comfortable and loved that it had a slight cap sleeve. It also has pockets! I can normally wear anywhere from an 8-12. This dress only went up to a 10 so rented that was happy that it fit. Others mentioned the zipper was stiff which I agree. I had my husband help zip me up. I would definitely recommend this dress.

This dress is bright and easy to wear. Fit and flare is flattering. Material wrinkles very easily though.

Flattering dress, beautiful colors

I wore this dress for my daughter's first birthday party. The colors are beautiful, the dress is classically flattering, it is comfortable, AND it has pockets! I gave this dress four stars instead of five because the zipper was impossible to get up (even with my husband's help) on one of the dresses sent to me. Additionally, the dresses both arrived wrinkled.

Not flattering and runs small

I'm usually a 10 in Kate Spade, but this was super tight. I was able to wear it, but it wasn't very comfortable. The material is thick and unforgiving. The cut is definitely NOT flattering for hourglass or curvy - or to be honest anyone. The skirt is just huge and bulky and adds a bunch of weight. Maybe for super thin folks? But I wasn't a fan.

This dress is great for a daytime event, very classic. The skirt has a lot of volume but not too much. The cap sleeves are cute and the material is very nice, pretty thick.

Maybe not for larger chests

Overall, I really liked the dress. My only complaint is that I had to go with a 10 to make sure my chest fit and then the waist of the dress was too big and made me look a little larger than I am. The pockets are GREAT! And the material is light enough for a warmer day, but stiff enough/heavy enough to hold up against the wind a little.

Fit and Flare!

Great (heavy) cotton fit and flare dress! Good flare for sure. I could have comfortably worn the 10, especially in the chest area, but this worked. I did wear a dark navy cover over it. The dress was hard to zip up on the side, and it did have over an inch of a hem at the bottom. I would have liked the extra length. Overall, quite nice, but it did have a couple unnoticeable spots.

This is a fun but conservative dress for work. It's a great Thursday dress to take you from work to fun. It fits true to size, if not a big snug.

Perfect Fancy Little Dress

This was a super nice dress WITH pockets. I rented this for a Bridal Shower whose theme was "fancy". It was perfect. Slightly heavier material than I was expecting and the chest was tighter than I was expecting so I had to go up in size because of the girls. Overall, it was a perfect cocktail dress for our fancy Bridal Shower!

Summer stripes!

Such a fun summer dress the skirt is full and the pockets make it awesome. I wore the 6 (4 wasn't available). I think it runs true to size. The zipper was a little quirky even though the dress was a little big. The blues in it are really pretty. Lots of compliments.

A star in stripes...compliments plus!

Kate spade is so fun to wear. This dress is no exception! The skirt is wonderful and full and the perfect length on me, right at the knee. The little cap sleeves make it more work appropriate and the boat neck is nice for necklaces. Enjoy wearing and get ready for compliments!

Surprisingly tight in the waist and bust

I've rented other Kate Spade dresses before but this was very tight in the waist and bust. Couldn't zip it up and had to return it. I'd say rent a size up if you can.

Cute summer work dress

I really love this style of dress - super cute and comfy. Couple of things with this - the dress creased in the bag so I should of really ironed it before wearing (couldn't be bothered!) and also the zipper is under the arm and was super stiff so struggled a bit on my own to do it up

Perfect dress for my daughters baptism. Very comfortable.

Zipper a bit hard to zip up and a bit hard to iron to get wrinkles out but overall I absolutely loved this dress and felt very pretty in it. Perfect for my Daughters baptism. The 4 and 6 were pretty similar in size. I went with the 6.

Wore this to a Sunday morning wedding ceremony/brunch and lawn games reception in June.

I am pear-shaped and typically wear size 6-8 dresses. I couldn't even zip up the size 6 (i.e., side zipper), but the size 8 zipped up just fine. I also typically wear dresses that are roomy/flouncy on the bottom half due to my pear-shape. Although this dress was overall well-suited for my size and shape, I think that the pockets add a bit more bulk than is necessary, but it wasn't that big of a deal. The fabric is sturdy and of good quality, and benefited from some steaming to get rid of wrinkles and folds. I received compliments on the dress and so got to share my love of RTR!

Great dress!

I wore this to my sister's baby shower. It was perfect in terms of formality. It is flattering and has pockets! My only issues was that the hook and eye at the top of the zipper dug into my underarm which made it uncomfortable eventually.

Kentucky Derby Dress

I wore this as a Derby party host. It was the backup as my original wasn't available. It liked this, but didn't love it. The dress was a little too full in the hips for my pear shape. The colors were the highlight of the dress.

Cotton With Pockets

Beautiful blues and a great cut. Wore it for my son's HS graduation. Definitely not for someone with a big bust - it was very snug in the top which fit me well. The zipper was very hard to pull up. I would give 5 stars but the front hem was coming down a little in the front.

Fun for summer, hard to zip

Pros: this dress is fun and summer-y and I got compliments all day long! Also, LOVE the deep pockets. The material feels great to wear and lays nicely. Fits very true to size. Cons: it took like 5 full minutes to zip up! The zipper stuck in 3 separate places and even when it wasn't "stuck" it was tough to move. In addition, there was a hole in the dress by the zipper that I had to safety pin closed. Also, the dress arrived very wrinkly- I had to iron!

Perfect spring dress

I loved this dressed! I wore it for work, but it was so easy to transition from work to dinner without feeling stuffy. It was a little tough to clasp and zipper up the side (thank goodness for my husband), but I highly recommend this dress.

Comfy and fun!

I'm 5'11 and normally a size 4 and the 4 fit perfectly. Like many, the side zipper was impossible to do on my own, and had to get help. It arrived extremely wrinkled and I ironed it as best I could, though the wrinkles were stubborn. The dress itself was very comfortable; I wore it all night for dinner, graduation, and after w/out feeling constricted. It laid just perfectly so to cover any "food belly" that may have been there. I loved the pockets and the length was nice too. Overall, it was a great choice for the night.

Very comfortable

I wore this to a wedding that we brought our 11 month old who won't sit still but doesn't walk well on his own. It was comfortable. Fit well. Did not have boneing so it wasn't too tight around my ribs. It was long enough I could pick up a movey baby all day and not worry. And the pockets were glorious for snacks and pacifiers.

people, venue, weather

I thought the flare was much higher on me than the picture describes. I do have a large chest, but even with that, I would have expected it to flare out more at the waist based on the picture vs it flares out much higher than the waist.
