perfect wedding dress!

Loved this dress for a fall wedding. Incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. I would recommend a strapless bra as you can see through the top part. Will rent again! Super fun dress.

New York Fashionista

This outfit made me feel like a true fashionista and that I owned the NYC sidewalk! I wore this to work and felt so on-trend and ready to take on anything! The dress moves well and is comfortable to wear! I added a belt to cinch in the waist because I felt like I looked a bit shapeless on my body but other than that I loved it, especially the bell sleeves! I would probably recommend this for tall girls because it is a bit long (I'm 5' 8").

Great Fall Dress

Really comfortable, lightweight and covered enough skin for fall, I wore it to work n then out and both felt completely appropriate. The front ( where the collar is) is translucent which was a nice touch and the sleeves are flouncy. Loads of compliments

This dress surprised me. It's fun and sexy - but not over done. Super classy, it's a dress that deserves a drink after work.

Perfect Fall Boho

I loved the pattern on this dress. It's a beautiful emerald green with great details like pretty pink birds. At 5'1", this dress was just a few inches above my ankles but I did not feel overwhelmed by the length as the fabric is a lightweight silk. You might want to size up if you are busty. I did not have much extra room in the chest area.

Gorgeous dress

This is a special dress. I rented it for a party that I didn't end up attending so alas I didn't get to wear this gem (it is too dressy for my office). Fit perfectly. Comfortable. Flattering. Feminine. Lovely fabric and design.

I loved this dress. I recommend this if you have an event. It was too dressy for me to wear just out. Even in booties

One of my favorite dresses!

The fit was amazing! Perfect for fall. Form fitting and flattering without being too tight. Sleeves a little long but not a big deal. Tons of compliments!

Beautiful flowy dress for warm weather.

No words to describe how much I liked this dress! True to size. If you are over 36c, size up, (this applies to size 2). The dress fit perfectly but I could see that it may be a bit tight at the top for someone with a bigger cup.

Too much going on

Wanted to love it because the fabric is beautiful but between the cold shoulders and sleeve ruffles, plus ruffles on the skirt, it overwhelmed my shape a bit.

Perfect green floral print!!

It was quite large for a 4 wish I would've gotten a 2 but it still was pretty The fabric ruffles were feminine without being over the top girly. Wish it came as a top- version would wear it with jeans all day long!

Perfect fit. Exactly what I was looking for for my event!

Everything fit great! The only issue I had was that I couldn't lift my arms up in the sleeves. But other than that, I loved it!!

Perfect Fall dress

Really like this dress, wore it on my trip to Spain. You can dress it up or down. Next time I would get a smaller size but still looked good. Very comfortable.

Elegant meets flirty meets class meets ease

I love this dress so much. The color is beautiful and the length is perfect for my 5'8" hourglass frame. Great combination of elegance and ease. A bit tight in shoulders with no stretch, and a bit loose in chest, but otherwise fit like a glove. Held on to this one for a full month thinking I'd buy but I haven't had an opportunity to wear other than once so I'm returning. Will definitely rent again.

Beautiful green and purple floral print.

I'm usually between a size 2 and 4. The size 4 fit well. Actually had a bit more room in the waist which was comfortable. Also easy to zip up the back all the way. Definitely I made the mistake of wearing a bra with straps. I was trying to hide them the whole day. Wear a strapless bra!! Pretty ruffles and received compliments from both men and women. Would rent again.

Okay but a little dowdy

This dress has a nice fabric and I like the fall colors. It's a little matronly and so I only wore it once. I can't pinpoint it but I'm guessing it's the combination of high neckline and low hemline with the dark color... I didn't feel particularly good in it.

Sleeves were wayyyy to longgg

This dress was super cute and fit well except the sleeves were about 3 inches too long! I did size up because I am 13 weeks pregnant so maybe that had something to do with it. It was a no for me.

Sophisticated but fun print

I actually rented this for a date night but it was a little frumpy and long for going out. Might have worked on someone taller but for us shorter folks it didn't. Instead I threw a blazer on and it was perfect for an important client meeting. The open shoulders would have been a no-no for work but I loved it with the blazer.

Frilly & fun

I love this designer. This dress was a hit- lots of compliments & 'where'd you get that's but I was a little overwhelmed in it. I have sized up in the past but there is no need with this style. It's incredibly well made & moves beautifully. I wore it with ballet inspired flats to work on a slower evening. I dressed it up with heels for drinks with the girls.

Gorgeous, unique dress

I absolutely loved this dress. The fit was so flattering and unique. I styled it with slouchy, Cabernet colored boots and a mustard yellow wrap - both colors which are very subtly in the floral pattern. Perfect for a cool evening in New York.

Loved it!

Fit perfectly! I don't usually wear color - (black is my color!) but I paired it with a leather jacket and it looked fabulous! I still have it as I am wearing it for a business trip to Miami next week.
