Cute dress for work

This dress is very true to size minus the fact that the material is not stretchy at all so it's not very generous. Overall I really liked the dress. I'm a 36D and had a little extra room under the armpit yet the chest portion was fitted. Also be careful there is a slit On the side that when sitting can show a lot of leg. Didn't realize that until after I got to work and sat down. So where a slip or black shorts under!

Easy and elegant!

This dress was easy to wear and transitional I wore it with red pumps to work and then changed into strappy heels for nighttime. The armholes are a bit deep, I had to wear a halter sports bra instead of a regular bra.

Great Work Dress!

This is a great dress with details that add interest without looking gaudy. Perfect for the office or for day-to-night. Fits true to size and length is just above the knee (I am 5'7").

Nice Fall dress

This dress is great for office or everyday. It's thicker/heavier than I was expecting, good for fall. There is a faux wrap and lacing detail. The edges are raw so It gives a more casual look. I fit well, without being tight.

This was a comfortable day dress for work. Material is a bit thicker which made it feel less causal.

Decent for work

Fit was good - would recommend one size up if you're not sure. The piece has unfinished hems that you may not see in the photo. Some of the threads are long, which I didn't really like. Also, the pressing was a little off on the front - not super noticeable.

Be aware of the INSANE slit!

Ordered for work bc it looks conservative. And that lasted until I sat down and the slit showed my leg all the way up to my hip. Yeah, that's right. Do a test run in front of a mirror before you head out the door, so you're prepared...

Not entirely in love

I absolutely love this designer and wanted this to be a knockout piece but it simply was not. The fit was a bit odd and the V-neck came up too high to an awkward position. To get this to fit appropriately inin the bust -left the arm holes too big. I ended up wearing this more or less as a jumper with a black turtleneck underneath as a result. It just looked OK. Nothing remarkable.

I loved the fit of this dress. The slit actually is very hidden but still have to be careful how you sit.

Very flattering and forgiving!

The material is AMAZING! It falls really nicely and hides all the problem areas! It is not too short, and I'm 5'10". Perfect work or casual dress!

Fits like a glove! Perfect work dress

I did not think I would love this dress as much as I did! It's a perfect work dress and fits like a glove. Love the material and the subtle fabric crossover up in the chest is really cute. Will definitely rent again!

Cute but didn't fit the bill

I rented this as an outfit option to wear for presenting at a conference. Turns out it's better as an all-season or warm weather dress and I was headed to Detroit. Didn't work out for this occasion but I'd rent it in the future for other things.

Fun, Transitional Fall Dress

I rented this dress for a day of customer meetings in the early fall in the southwest, where mornings are cool and the afternoons are hot. This was a great transitional piece, since it looked great with a sweater and tights, but provided enough coverage to wear on its own, without the sweater. It's a little short for tall girls, so I definitely couldn't have ditched the tights, but it was a fun look with the booties, so I was happy.

Not suitable for work

The dress is basically a wrap dress. There is a major slit on one of the sides that is very high. I don't recommend wearing this in a professional setting. The picture doesn't really show this.

Wore this to a work conference and it was perfect! Material is thick and heavy yet drapes well and feels luxe. The side slit is a little high but just be careful when you sit down and you'll be fine. Would definitely rent again!!!

Great dress

I lived the way this fabric hung, and the fit was very slimming and flattering. I wore it with flats for a casual date and it was perfect. The dress felt like very good quality. I felt it ran a little small but not a full size, because I'm between and 4 and a 6 and the 6 fit perfect around my rib cage. Great dress to dress up or down.

Super comfy, stretchy, buttery fabric. Revealing up the side of the leg.

Effortless chic. Nice for work events and less-sexy gatherings. Not a super exciting neckline, but the woven elastic ribbons on the side of the waist are fantastic. Beware the dress is revealing on the side basically up to your underwear because the flap is just held down with a few stitches. I wore opaque black tights and black mini shorts with this dress for peace of mind. The black is a very rich full black. Love it. I've rented it twice now.

Enormous, weird fabric

This dress was large to the point of unwearable. I am a 4/6 and generally size up in designed dresses. This was huge - it literally hung on me. I wasn't able to wear it. It was also a strange fabric, crepe-y. I didn't like it.

nice work dress

very comfortable, easy to wear pattern, the slit on the side adds a little something, fit very well for someone btwn a 2 and 4. hem hit a touch above the knee, wore a reg bra. this is a staple dress you can wear again and again. it isn't the most exciting, but is very useful. i liked the small touches. would def recommend for a work day

Perfect fashion forward work dress

I love this dress and received lots of compliments at work. The detailing with the laced up side is really interesting and it's a perfect length and fit for work. It's a little tight across the bust but not too bad. Be careful because the faux wrap on the side makes the slit a little high when you're sitting down and crossing your legs. Highly recommend the dress!

Great transition dress

This dress is made of a wool fabric, so is heavier than it looks. This would make it a great dress to transition to autumn. I loved the style and fit, and its just a bit more interesting than a plain LBD. The length was just above the knee for me so would be shorter on most others. I wore this to a dinner in NYC and felt very put together and stylish.

Comfy and appropriate for informal work event on a hot Autumn day.

I fell in love with the fabric - thick but soft and flexible, without wrinkling. It's a dress I'd love to have for everyday use, if it weren't so expensive. I think it could go from day to night with high heels, but I wouldn't wear it for anything too formal. It's subdued and understated, and not really a very sexy look - more of a comfortable and confident look/feeling. I usually wear a 2 or a 4, and a 2 fit fine.

The fabric and details of the dress were top shelf.

This dress is quality all the way and very comfortable. I felt comfortable wearing this everywhere. I got it to wear to a Thanksgiving party. I didn't know anyone so I wanted to play it safe. Perfect selection. I worn it with black heels. I also worn it another time doing a little city shopping and added a black turtleneck, tights, and boots. I will rent this again. I did not need shape wear.
