Black beauty

Fun light weight material perfect for the chilly San Francisco summer weather. Love the lace and star detail. Fit was flattering for my curves. Easy throw on and go dress for many occasions from work to play and beyond. I will keep for a few weeks and wear again.

Beautiful dress

Dress was flattering although I tucked the neck tie portion in so I didn't have to deal with it and it looked fine. I wore without the belt once and it looked great. My issue with the belt is there are no loops to keep it in place but someone who rented before me put a tiny piece of double sided tape on it which seemed to hold it in place. Dress is comfy for summer and the star pattern was really pretty and on trend.

Too hot for this dress

Adorable, lovely on but not the right time of year for this dress. Will likely get this again in the fall.

Compliments all night

I am a 32" bust, 26" waist, and 41" hip. With an a line dress like this, I knew I could get away with only going by my top measurements. I rented this for a band gig and was told by several people that much dress envy was had all night! Great option for the evening. Would definitely rent again!

Stunning and far-from-basic black dress

Everything about this dress is amazing. I love the texture, the fit, the feel. The tie at the neck is so chic. The lace at the bottom is gorgeous. The star pattern is so interesting. The belt pulled it all together. I wore with good accessories and black boots! Love everything about it and would be so delighted to wear it again! So fun.

Beautiful but complicated

I rented this for a black tie wedding. I ended up tucking the sleeves in to avoid looking to witchy for the October wedding. The material is beautiful but did not work well with my bust size. At 5'1 I had to use a lot of adhesives to try and hold the dress over my breast. Wasn't flattering without a bra since the fabric was too lose. Despite being beautiful and it and would probably look awesome on someone tall , it was a lot of maintenance.

Beautiful Dress!

Wore this to the ballet. It is absolutely gorgeous. You can't see it, but it's got a really subtle star pattern. The details on this dress are great!

Party dress

I liked the quality of this dress it was very nice well made. I usually wear a 10 and I fit an 8 in this dress runs a little large. I had to wear a bandeau top over my bra because of the open front. Other then that I made it work and paired it with my own belt. I liked the dress a lot it was cute.

I got so many compliments on it. The dress is surprisingly light and I felt beautiful in it. It's super comfortable and super flattering.

Beautiful high quality fabrics. Velvet, subtle star print all over, and hanging lace.

I really wanted to love this dress. But, for me, this dress come off too much like a baggy costume to wear out. There is a lot of detail as, the scarf hangs low to a buckle belt, and long Lacey bell wrists. I loved the star print all over. I might order it in October in a smaller size. Definitely SIZE DOWN for this one. I believe if it was more fitted it would have look less witchy and more interesting.

Unique Piece

Very cool dress! The only thing was the v neck was too low so I had to wear a tank under it.

I hate you, I love you.

This is one of the weirdest and most amazing pieces of all time. You'll hate it, then you'll fall in love. It's creepy and stunning and fabulous. I wore it to work and it was complimented by people I'd never expect. The only issues were the bow is hard to get right and the belt is wayyyyyy too long. You need sticky double sided tape. Hollywood fashion tape doesn't hold a velvet belt

it's a gorgeous dress and so unique.

I am a true size 6 but this was too big size down The chest is a lot more exposed than the photo shows but the length balances out. If you are bigger chested it may not be super flattering. Will rent again

Stylist Review

This dress is incredibly unique and detailed! All of the intricate designs make this dress look very luxurious and chic. I did find that it ran a bit big, so I'd recommend sizing down. However, although it felt loose almost everywhere, it was a little tight across my back. I loved the length of this dress, hitting a few inches below my knee at 5'5". With the opening at the neckline and the sheer lace in a few places, this dress looked very fashionable and didn't look quite as "old lady-ish" as it could have.

Nice Flowy Dress.

This dress was cute but it had a Halloween feel to it. Especially with the lace on the sleeves and wearing it as pictures was not work appropriate. I had to wear a tank underneath because it showed way too much cheat. I tucked in the lace into my sleeves and it gave it a three quarter sleeve look. I wore my own skinny belt because the one that came with it was velvet and didn't look right for summer, and it had a long part that just stuck out. Overall it was cute and I made it work, but if I rented it again, it would be for a witch costume for Halloween. The dress needed to be ironed when i got it. But otherwise the length was great and the lace details on top and bottom were pretty.

I rented this for a holiday work party and it was perfect!

This dress was just the right amount of dressy and sexy, I absolutely loved it and wish it was part of my wardrobe! I am also 13 weeks pregnant and it didn't constrict me in any way.

Not as nice as I'd hoped

Had to wear a cami underneath as the bust was too large. The fabric feels cheap and you can't really move your arms much. It looks pretty but I wasn't very comfortable

Fun dress but very low cut if Large busted.

This was a back up dress, the size belt that was sent was not the right size, it was very small. The dress is very low cut. I really did not have an option to make this dress work as the belt was not the correct size.

Completely different from the norm.

Great dress. My husband thought it was a bit conservative. He was wrong. If you have large breasts (I'm a 34D) this is NOT the dress to be conservative. The opening in the front exposes your bust. I had to tape the ties in place to keep from exposing my cleavage. The dress is covered in stars and the material is really thin.

I rented this for night out in Vegas but it looked too dated.

It fit well, and I read the reviews but hoped it would look better on and not too "witchy". Personally, i really liked it, but my boyfriend thought it looked like and old ladies dress. Someone more sophisticated would appreciate it i think.

Chic dress but decided not to wear it

I loved everything about this dress except for the belt and elastic waistline/seam. The belt was impossible to keep in one spot, it shifted with every move. This would not have been an issue without the huge seam and visible elastic waistband. With every shift of the body, the belt would move and expose the scrunched waistline. Tried to wear without the belt, but that took away from the overall appeal. Sadly, I do not recommend.
