Stylist Review!
Beautiful shift, love the high neck and sequin detailing. This dress is one that can be worn to a variety of events. It would be great for a holiday party, a cocktail event, or even a work event with black tights and a blazer. It runs true to size and is meant to fit loosely in the bodice. For backup, I'd recommend sizing up. The length hit at about mid thigh on me (5'7"). I'd also recommend this style for a variety of body types, including a small baby bump. Overall comfortable, chic, and unique! Pair it with black or nude barely there heels and minimal jewelry.

A Hall of Fame awards show.
I ordered this dress in a 6 and an 8, but was told ahead of time, that the 8 was not going to be available. So, the great people at RTR sent me three additional dresses to choose from. But after trying them all on, my original choice was the best. Even though I tend to be between a 6 and 8, this dress in a six was perfect! The dress hit me right above the knee..and accented my somewhat toned arms. :) It stood out in a sea of black..worn by both men and women..had almost a 60's mod vibe. I would certainly recommend this dress for a fun, but fancy occasion!

Amazing!
I absolutely loved this dress. It was perfect. I rented this for a Fashion gala dinner and runway show and it fit in perfectly. It was so comfortable to wear as well! I didn't want to take it off! I'm already trying to figure out when I can rent this dress again.

Beautiful dress but it didn't arrive in time
This dress is beautiful but pretty short. I didn't get to wear it as some kind of UPS delay meant it didn't get to me in time despite ordering it to arrive on Friday by 8 pm for a Saturday 7 pm event. RTR customer service was great when I called and are issuing refund. This is the first time I've had this happen with RTR. It a arrived the day after my event...so I tried it on just to see fit. It is short...probably 6 inches above my knees and I am 5'6". The material is very light and stretchy . Gorgeous fun beading but a little pricey for what it is.

Perfect for a daytime wedding!
I wore this for a daytime wedding with a night time reception. It was just enough flair for it to be fun for nighttime and I felt great! This really is a beautiful dress!

Beautiful dress! Flowers may need to be pressed.
Dress is beautiful. I thought it might be a little forgiving since it appears to be A-line, but found it to be slightly tight around the middle (never lost that tummy after child birth) with size 8; Dress is shaped well that going large was OK and wore size 10. The flowers were folded in half and had to spend some time flattening them out. No need for an iron, was doable by hand - folded it backwards to get it flat.

Extremely chic with mod details.
The color combo was amazing. Better then I expected. I ordered a size up since it looked short and I'm glad a did. Dress is short but the high neck balances it out.

LOVED IT!
Pros: Very comfortable, incredibly unique, easy to wear and perfectly camouflages an oversized (after a 9 course diner) belly. Compliments from the moment I walked in. Fit: I usually wear a 4. Only available in 6, looked great. But could have worn 4. This dress is on the short side for a tall girl. I’m 5’9 and it was just long enough. Wore my comfy everyday bra. Cons: None. Worn to: Dinner at Post Ranch Inn

sexy and fun to wear
Sparkly detailing is pretty which made for a great date night dress without being too much. Dress is very stretchy and comfortable. I wore it with leggings and a simple cardigan to dress it down a little.

Great little dress.
Very original and well-made. Fit perfectly. Didn't get 5 stars because it was too short

Fantastic dress-A Must Try!
This has been one of my favorite RTR items! The dresses details are a unique blend of lace, the nude illusion, and a little shine with the large sequins. It was definitely a head turner! I wore for a party with my Stuart weitzman black suede over the knee boots. Dress is fairly short so be aware but not indecent ;)

Unique but needs to be retired
Very comfortable and was probably pretty brand new, but RTR needs to retire this dress. The flowers were so crumpled it looked horrible. I can't believe they even sent it to me.

Overworn
I am sad to say this dress has seen better days, clearly over-worn. I couldn't have even worn it, it was in such bad shape

Loved it but a bit short for me
This dress was so much fun and I wish I could have worn it. I got it as a replacement rental for another dress that couldn't ship for a wedding I was attending. I really wanted to wear it but I was worried about it being too short for dancing (plus I was singing in the wedding and it felt a bit too short for a ceremony participant). Would love to rent this again for date night!!
