Review: Rachel Zoe Suzette Lace Dress + Estelle Open-Back Lace Gown

July 31, 2017

Longtime readers of this blog know that I collect special-occasion dresses with fervor. But, as I normally advise those who email me looking for recommendations, there's a reason dress rental services like Rent the Runway exist (and thrive!): few people want to be photographed in the same dress twice.

However, there is value in having a few timeless pieces in your closet that are suitable for all special occasions, because RTR could fail you and it can be a struggle finding a dress locally at the last minute.

Today I am sharing two of my favorite finds from the last year; both are from the Rachel Zoe permanent collection: the Suzette Lace Sheath Dress and the Estelle Open-Back Lace Gown.
MATERIAL Shell: 35% cotton/34% nylon/31% viscose; Lining: 100% polyester
DETAILS Sheer lace yoke and cap sleeves; scalloped edges/hem; princess seams in front; concealed tonal back zipper closure
CARE Dry clean
FIT True to size (or a size small compared to mass retailers like J. Crew; if you are particularly bosomy or callipygian, go up another size), but the length may be awkward on shorter people. The dress is designed to end above the knee, but on 5'2 me it's almost midi length.
PRICE $395, and I don't believe it goes on sale. But Rachel Zoe does participate in most gift card or buy more, save more events so you may want to wait for one of those sales.
