This was sooo cute! I wore it out to a Valentine's Day date and my BF loved it:)
I rented it at an event and the girls talked me in to renting it. But it was a very pretty dress. I normally wouldn't pick something like that, but it was cute.

Great for the theme...glad I didn't pay full price
I wore this dress for a Roaring 20's themed New Year's Eve party. I got an email with dresses on special for $20.15 so I figured I'd go for it. I normally wear an XS or S in dresses so I ordered the S for this event. Go figure, the only time I don't order an additional size up, its an awkward fit. There is a liner underneath the skirt that is so incredibly tight that's is disproportionate from the rest of the dress. That was a bit obnoxious throughout the night and it would ride up and be noticeable in pictures since it's connected to the skirt portion.

Unflattering
This dress just isn't very flattering if you're trying to show any curves. It boxes you up instead of showing you off.

Cute dress. Bright, fun color. Heavier dress than you would think and the top portion has baggy.

This dress would really suit someone very petite and thin
I was unable to wear this dress as it was too short and weird fitting around the hips. I wish I had listened to the reviews more for my body type! The dress was really pretty and I wish it would have worked out but if you have bigger thighs I would stay away from this dress. It is best suited for someone very petite and thin!

Not Flattering
I didn't end up wearing this dress because the top of it had way to much fabric and was not flattering. The draped fabric covered the entire belt.

Great color
I didn't end up wearing this one. It wasn't the right fit for me. I am not very hippy, but I do carry a little extra weight in my midsection, and it made the waist of this dress look a little odd. Probably because it was a little too tight. The dress also ran a tad snug in the chest area because of the dress's liner, and the style of the dress made my girls look huge! It wasn't the look I was going for.

Beautiful Dress!
This was a backup dress for an event on NYE, and if I hadn't loved my original one so much I would have worn it! It fit beautifully, and was a gorgeous color. It was nice and lined, which was something I was worried about; I wouldn't have had to wear a slip. The pleats were lovely, and gave it an extra bit of class!

Didn't work for me
I love the idea of this dress, the color, the design, etc, but in practice it just didn't work for me. The top was far too tight on my chest, even when I sized up, and the snaps kept popping open when I tried it on. I am only a size C, so not even overly busty. Glad I had a backup dress.

Dress did not work out....
The dress is not meant for anyone with any type of curves... I wear a size 4-6 because of my hips, and it just was not flattering at all. It made me look boxy or like a mushroom... be wary.

Beautiful color but funny fit.
This dress was incredibly pretty and the top fit best, but the lining on the bottom half was very tight. Don't recommend for women with wide hips or large butts. Also stains with water. I personally wouldn't rent again.

Easy to move in
Rented this one for a NYE event and while I loved it in theory, the top part had a bit more fabric to it, which covered up the gorgeous waistline and making it look a little too baggy for my taste. That said, was very comfortable throughout the night!

I wore this dress to a holiday cocktail party. It was super comfy and very cute. The red color is beautiful and the dress is easy to wear. The straps are adjustable which is a great feature for petite girls!

Nice Color, Nice Dress
This was not one of my favorite RTR dresses, but I did wear it and it does photograph well. It was also very good quality and a beautiful color. The only downside was I felt if you carry any weight on the bottom half of your body, it was accentuated by the location of the waist line. Small tip - the glitter on the waist line is similar to a gun metal, so gun metal jewelry or silver looked great with it. Overall, decent dress.

The beading at the waist of this dress is really beautiful, although its hard to tell in the picture
The fit of this dress is very flattering, I was able to go to dinner and eat without feeling self conscious.

Vibrant, comfortable dress for a night out.
This dress was great for a night out with girlfriends. The dress is a lot shorter than the photo but it wasn't an issue. It was extremely comfortable and the color is great. The beading around the midsection is very fitted which shows off your figure. The pleats are beautiful. I wore with gold heels. All in all a great dress.

Lots of near wardrobe malfunctions in this dress!!
WAY too short for a wedding ceremony in a church... and if you have a large chest, the snaps will come undone while you're dancing...I wouldn't recommend it, except to the very thin and petite.

Beautiful dress, but the Large is too Small for me :(
I'm really bummed that this dress didn't work out for me. The first thing I noticed when I took the dress out of the bag was how gorgeous the color was. The material was heavy and it felt like really good quality. I got both the Medium and the Large. Medium fit up top, but the Large was a bit baggy. Unfortunately, it didn't really matter as I couldn't zip either of them all the way. I guess maybe this designer just isn't for me. Beautiful dress though!

Great color for a girls day out wine tasting!
I wore this to a girls trip wine tasting in Napa. I got tons of compliments on the dress. It's really a gorgeous color. But it runs super big!! I wore an xs and it was still big on me!! :( I tried to hide it with a little jacket on top and that seemed to do the trick. But size down...or if you're small like me the xs (which is the smallest) might still be too big. Also, I think this dress is more flattering on taller women and not someone with a short torso like myself. Hope that helps!!

Definitely not for girls with hips. The sinched waist was not flattering for me and the skirt poofed out like a big red acordian. Love the color though.

People kept stopping me to tell me how great I looked in my dress
This dress was the perfect for a night out. The sparkly detail along the waist was the perfect touch and the red color makes you stand out in the best way possible. I've worn other Parker dresses in the same style but without the detailed middle and found them to be long for my height. This one, however, hit perfectly at my mid thigh.

Great service and a beautiful product.
I needed a dress for a gala-- Vermont, not DC-- so this was a perfect for evening cocktail attire. I received so many complements and after I told everyone it was rented, they suggested I find a way to purchase it because it was so great. I would highly recommend this dress for anyone who thinks the picture looks great-- it's just as great on! The material felt wonderful and I was never concerned about it looking too big or too small. The color is gorgeous and you can easily wear it with heels or flats.
