Gorgeous and fit like a glove!

I rented this dress for my bridal shower and I received a compliment from everyone person that walked in the door. I loved the patters and bright colors. This dress was my favorite rental thus far, and I've rented several from RTR. I was so sad when I had to send it back!

Tropical chic

Bright, fun, bold, and flattering. This dress was the perfect pic for a Kate Spade themed bridal shower. I highly recommend. I paired with nude heels and simple stud earrings with a black and white bracelet. No need to accessorize though, this dress makes its own statement!

Colorful comfortable dress with playful peplum

This dress is colorful and vibrant with a playful peplum. The dark shade is a very deep brown as stated in other reviews. Fits beautifully at functions like summer weddings. The material was substantial but not too warm. Well constructed and true to size. Easy to dance in. A keeper.

Colors really pop! Very comfortable and fun

I wore this to a "tropical chic attire" summer wedding and the vibrant colors were perfect. The peplum flare was more noticeable than on the model, and may not work on people hoping to minimize hips. I thought it was fun though and the fabric was forgiving.

Fun Tropical Peplum dress!

I loved this dress! I rented it as part of my unlimited subscription. Fun, bright, 80's print. Styled with a big gold necklace, cropped black jacket, and black pumps. Many compliments! Will rent again!

Beautiful colors, vibrant

Fit: perfect even for my short torso. Also fit my bust without sizing up. Length on me was to the knee. Fabric: unlined but cotton material is structured and weighty enough. The pattern hides wrinkles well. I'm loving the Kate Spade collection at RTR!

This dress was SO flattering.

I am normally a size 12 but still have a post baby belly and felt a little more comfortable in the 14. Loved this dress and got tons of compliments

Lots of compliments! Gorgeous bright pattern

I wore this dress to my sister's bridal shower. I ended up wearing the 2, and noticed that it was a little snug under the arms. Otherwise it was really cute and I would def rent it again- I received lots of compliments! It's a gorgeous pattern and the colors are very bright and fun.

Fun spring dress

I am between a 6 and 8 and did not get the chance to try the 6, but the 8 fit fine. It was not too tight, but not loose. Little details: the peplum is small, there are snaps to hold your bra in place and the background color of the dress is actually dark brown! I still wore black shoes with it, but would have been nice to know this detail before.

Bright pattern & fit

I normally wear size 8 in KS, so there was no issue with fit. I got this for Mothers Day luncheon but also wore it to church. The silhouette of the dress was very classic but having a bright fun pattern made it special.

The dress was true to size and the colors were amazing for the occasion!

The make up is mainly cotton so it is great to be worn to a spring/summer function. The colors were very vibrant and fit perfect. If you consider yourself to be "hippy" the dress does tend to flare a little at the bottom versus a pencil fit after several hours of being worn. It was a great choice for a wedding that took place outside!

The customer service is amazing! One of the dresses I received had a torn seam and they refunded me

I loved this dress and received a lot of compliments! I wore this for my son's baptism. I'm a short girl (5 ft 3in) and it was somewhat long on me.

Beautiful Floral Pattern

Based on reviews I sized up to a 6 when I am typically a 4. I wouldn't say the 6 was "too big", but I possibly could've worn the 4 for a more tailored fit. I added a black skinny belt just above the peplum to bring the waist in a little more. I also really liked how the peplum stopped in the very front, it kind of helped it to look more classy and grown up and added less visual bulk to the tummy. Great dress!

Pattern makes the dress!

The dress was very comfortable on a very hot wedding day, the fabric moves with you but I sized up so I could dance and eat dinner comfortably. The cut is so flattering and the print is so gorgeous you don't need to accessorize at all.

This dress was perfect for my professional presentation!

This dress fits very true to size- I'm 5'9" 163# 36C and usually wear an 8/10. The fabric was stretchy but the 8 was snug over my bust so I opted to wear the 10. Only con was that I could not for the life of me get the eye/hook at the top of the zipper to close! However, the zipper stayed up great without the hook closure done. Lots of compliments on this dress! Worn during the day for giving a professional medical presentation and again all evening out at a wine bar, perfect transition from day to night with a few accessories swapped out!

Fun shape and pattern!

This dress was fun to wear, but not the most slimming. The style, with the peplum, is fun, but I don't think it was super flattering. I did get compliments and felt very put together. I ordered a size up to be have extra room in the bust. The arm holes seemed a little snug and I kept readjusting.

Comfortable and pretty

Wore this to a baby shower. The Fit was true to size however you can see from this pic that the peplum makes you appear larger than you are depending on the angle you are standing. Received many compliments on the dress and paired with black strappy sandals to complete the look. Dress is super busy so does not need many accessories.

The design and colors were extremely flattering!

I'm happy I stuck with the 8 because the seam around the ribs would've been too tight in a 6. My hips are more narrow than the top half of my body so there was some extra room but it wasn't enough to not wear it. I got many compliments! I wore this for a daytime laid back wedding.

Such a fun dress for a fundraiser event!

Great dress for a fundraiser event I attended. I am almost 5'10 so if you are tall and want it a little longer I would definitely say go up a size. I am also big chested so this dress was so fun and still conservative and classy. I love Kate Spade and this dress did not disappoint!

Always love Kate spade!

The fit was great. The only thing I would say is that the details in the photo look black but it's actually a dark brown. If you're a matchy matchy person like me that will change your shoe and jewelry choice. Perfect for a fall wedding!

Not for long torsos

I was hoping the peplum detail would balance out my long torso, but it exaggerated it and made me look unproportional (is that a word?). Also, the fabric felt stiff and uncomfortable. Didn't wear.

Palm Springs perfect

Rented this darling dress for a work dinner in Palm Springs. Perfect light weight comfortable fabric. Both the 4 and the 6 fit but I wanted the bit of extra length in the 6, since I was attending a work dinner.

Great dress!

The dress was really pretty and different than my usual LBD choice. It was perfect for a day at the races. I ended up wearing the 8 and I'm usually a 6 because it was just a little too tight. The colors were faded on the size 8 from too much wear. The black was more of a faded black or brown color.

Elegant and colorful dress

This dress is super comfortable, the color is beautiful and It has a high quality fabric. I Didn't wear It because It was too large. Probably the size 2 or 0 would be perfect. I am looking forward to ordering this style again in the right size.

A little matronly and stiff

I rented this dress for a wedding, but ended up wearing my backup. The material is very stiff, though lightweight, and I felt the cut was aging - I could see someone's mom wearing this, but it wasn't ideal for me (in my mid-twenties).
