Preppy with a twist, I wore this dress to an important interview followed by a dinner party. The fit is super easy and ladylike.

Fits nicely. Reads as pink metallic. Funny pleat in the back hit me right across butt. Otherwise, nice conservative option with a twist.

I love this dress! It fit like a glove. It is perfect for cocktail parties. I am usually a 4 or 6 and the 4 fit perfectly.

This dress was prettier in person than in the picture, but I wasn't able to wear it. The bottom half was a little large and the top was so tight on my chest it looked smashed. I would recommend for someone very small with a small chest.

I rented this dress for my wedding shower, and it was absolutely perfect. It was stylish, yet very classy. It fit really well, true to size. The color and print are beautiful, even better than how it looked on my computer screen. I got so many compliments on the dress. The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars is the pleating that sticks out a bit on the side - it took some maneuvering to get it to lay flat.

Someone said that I looked like a modern Grace Kelly-- could there be a better compliment?

I received many compliments on this dress! Some comments included "very mad men" or "mod." I hadn't imagined it being so retro when I ordered it, but that's the impression the dress gave. It was well-fitted and nice for a summer evening wedding.

Lela Rose's dresses fit so well! I loved this one and wore it to a birthday dinner for my mom. The fabric is thick and structured with beautiful colors. I would love to own this dress. It was a good length on me (5'5") but could be long on someone shorter.

Gorgeous and comfortable

It was very fitting on the upper body and a bit loose on the hips down. There's a hidden slit so your legs have more room than you think when you sit down and such.
