Not the Kate Spade dress you might be used to

This dress was so cute in color and pattern, but so wrong in size. It ran way too big, and with the shoulder pads that do not remove SO wrong in styling. Sizing down simply wouldn't be the solution with the shoulder pad issue. If they were removable, sizing down could work. But unfortunately, they are not. Such a shame for a really cute dress and pattern.

Gorgeous

I'm in love with this dress and wanted to wear it for Valentine's Day but it was too big. I knew when I ordered it the 0 would not fit but I had to see for myself. RTR I really wish you carried Kate Spade in XXS and 00. The 0 fits more like a 2.

Most compliments ever!

Easy fit and beautiful drape. Loved this dress and received the most compliments ever. Could probably size down but fit nicely either way.

Cute but runs big

Precious fabric and style. Love the length (mid calf). Runs large in the chest.

Shoulder Pads Ruined It

I really really wanted to like this dress. I love Kate Spade and I look good in red (hahah) but the massive shoulder pads paired with the puffy sleeves made it look like a bad 80s wedding dress. It was not flattering and looks very very outdated. I didn't wear it to any occasion because I would've been embarrassed to be seen in it.

I've only got eyes for this dress

Wore this heart dress on Valentine's Day, it has all the feminine vibes going for it. The front V neck was a bit big on me, but I have a small chest. You could also use fashion tape to keep in place. Overall I adored this dress. Follow more of my looks on Instagram @an.unlimited.life

A little too much dress for me

It's a really cute and well made dress but the sleeves and shoulder pads were a little too much for my laid back style.

Classy and colorful!

This dress was a huge hit - classy, colorful, pretty comfy for the most part. I did feel like it ran a smidge large - I'll opt for a 2 next time (I'm typically a 4/small). I was glad I safety-pinned the neckline. Only other issue I had was that I felt like the waistband was a bit high on me & I had a hard time finding the right shoe to wear with it. I'm 5'5" and midi dresses are difficult for me to pull off without wearing a heel.

Pretty & Feminine

I wasn't sure if the ruffles looked like I was wearing a nightie but I wore it to an Amer Heart Assoc Luncheon and received many compliments. Fits slightly generous. No stretch to the fabric.

Didn't wear it- unflattering

Couldn't wear this. Looked terrible on me and made me look like I had huge shoulders

Didn't wear

I didn't wear this. My 6 was overwhelming on my 5'5" frame - there was soooo much fabric at the bottom. I'm not sure if a smaller size would have helped, because I'm a 34 DDD. The color was beautiful. Loved the sleeves. There are shoulder pads.

Flirty, feminine, so fun!

I ordered this for Valentine's day because duh! It's so cute, flirty and fun. It also has shoulder pads, which is AWESOME! But a bit of a bummer, it runs large and I was unable to wear it.

Kate Spade clothing not for me

I love all their designs but the fit is just off. I am between sizes and ordered the upper. The dress was a bit big, a bit long and my fiance and I laughed that I looked like a very conservative older school teacher. The fabric and design is beautiful but if you are on the shorter side note it will be closer to your lower calf not mid.

Shoulder pads?!

Disappointing! this delicate dress comes with stiff shoulder pads that are sewn in. And static was an issue. Sent this one back immediately.

Cute, but is pretty revealing and runs long

Cute dress, It's a fun flowy material prone to static. It was more revealing than I expected so I had to pop a cami underneath. It was also a lot longer than I expected. Not sure how tall that model is but, I'm 5'9 and the dress was closer to my ankle than to my knee so short ladies beware.

Adorable 💕

The shoulder pads were different but I didn't mind them. I'm 5'4" and wore this with flats for a trade show so it was much more midi length for me. The sleeves have elastic at the wrist but it was comfortable. Was the first V cut dress I've rented that I didn't have to worry about pinning or wearing a cami with. Got lots of compliments- its just a fun dress!
