cute!
I ordered in both the 1 & 2 and ended up keeping the size 2-- I usually wear a small, but liked the added looseness on the size 2 & preferred a more slouchy fit. But cute casual dress I can wear plain with boots or over leggings.

The texture of this fabric is odd
Style is cute but there is something odd with the fabric as it's covered with very tiny lints which really ruin the classy raw silk material. What a shame !

By Five Eight In Height, Plus On Top
Picture this. I run a size 20(top)/10-14(bottom) to a 16(top)/10-8(bottom), depending on brand. Picture this. Size 3 in Raquel Allegra's Maxi Skirt on me. Quite something to look at. It makes me look so thin on bottom. I look like I have one leg. That's how thin I look on the bottom in this Maxi Skirt. Alas, I am not proportioned. I look like an upside-down pear. This Maxi Skirt is for proportioned people (what isn't eh, lol). I think it is gorgeous though. Nice thin breathable material. I am 5'8" and it is a perfect length for me - a tiny bit longer than pictured on me than on the model. I take away one star due to the placement of the pockets. The pockets are too close together IMHO. Think about how pockets on hoodies are placed and you get the picture. A final note: I am returning my size 3. Maybe one of you proportioned ladies can enjoy it. :)

Return, hessian not silk
This dress has a pretty pattern. The cut was good too, but don't expect normal silk, it's a very coarse silk that feels more like linen. I sent back because I like the way that silk skims the body, to make a dress more flattering. This was more like a jersey or thick cotton dress.

HUGE!
This top looked really nice & the fabric was lovely, However, it was waaay too big. I wear a 0 and ordered & received a 0. Either it was mismarked or was just plain large. Needless to say, I returned it.

Aptly named
Thanks to the shopbop FF sale, I was able to get this perfect tee before it sold out. I adore RA but, of course, the price is a little up there. That said, I ordered my usual size 2 but had to send this one back for a 3. I have not gained weight so maybe this year R is cutting a little differently but once I received the size 3, I was back in heaven with these wonderful tees. Softer than any baby butt and different from anything out there, it makes up for paying that much for a tee. Thanks to shopbob for carrying them because they are hard to find and sell out so quickly. If you have not tried them, you owe it to yourself to try the Perfect Tee because it is named that for a good reason.

Earning its Stripes
This is my first Raquel Allegra situation, and frankly I only tried it because it was on sale. I am so glad I did. The fabric is AMAZING and SO SO SO SOFT and worn in. The quality is much, much more than expected and it fit beautifully. It is gauzy without being see-through and a total grand slam. Very flattering. Will be ordering more pieces!

Great
beautiful printed silk top - it's a slightly boxy fit but looks cute a little oversized.

Silken breezy Tee
The beautiful silk material elevates this easy tee into a far more versatile piece. It is shear so you will need a cami under it, but the colors are dark and shaded just right so you get good coverage. Can be worn with jeans casually or dressed up for evenings. Totally comfortable yet very sumptuous feeling. You cannot beat the price. Wear all SS season.

Beautiful top
I love Raquel Allegra's silk tops, and this one is no exception. I rarely buy sheer things that I need to wear a cami under, but this one is beautiful, pattern placement is great for coverage as the other reviewer noted. It is so versatile too - can be office appropriate, weekend cool, or dinner-date-pretty. It flows beautifully on the body and is light as air. I tuck it in and blouson a bit at work, or leave it flowy - looks great either way and I've already gotten complements. Plus it's hand washable! I hate drycleaning so that's a plus for me. I find Raquel Allegra's sizing to be pretty fluid, and have worn 1, 2 and 3 in her tops and dresses (I'm normally a 6, with linebacker broad shoulders so I often go up to an 8 in tops/jackets). The 2 here is perfect but I would have bought a 1 or 3 also if the 2 wasn't available. Definitely a steal on sale!

Not your usual Raquel
Not to get the wrong idea; this is a lovely sweatshirt, but not in the usual sense of that word. It is made of a lovely soft gauze with sheer embroidered sleeves, dressy yet way comfortable. The arms run a little long but have buttons and can be rolled up or cuffed to a desired length. It is a bit of a new style for RA but totally welcome. It does run a little big, so do not order up. Suitable for any occasion. You feel very fine in it and will get many compliments. Way to go, RA. The sleeves are most stunning.

Almost perfect
This dress is beautiful but not fully lined. The bottom half is lined but the top is not. Still too cute to return.

My favorite LBD!
What a beautiful dress! I have several black dresses, but this one is the most show stopping. It's incredibly sexy, but in a very tasteful way. The whole dress is lined in nude, but the bottom part has a slightly thicker nude lining than the top part. I wore a nude bra and nude Spanx underneath. It's a very delicate dress, so be sure to not where any jewelry. This dress is so gorgeous on its own that it really doesn't need any. I put on some diamond studs after putting the dress on. Finished the look with strappy nude heels. I normally wear a medium or 6 in designer clothes, and a size 2 fit perfectly!
