Design has changed
I own a ton of the sheer hipster briefs, but when I bought these ones, I noticed that the design has changed. The top band is a little thicker than it was on my earlier pairs and the underwear itself seems bigger, even though the fit is still snug. They're perfecto fine, but not quite as sexy as the previous iteration.

Flattering fit
I was looking for some workout 3/4 pants that were fitted for running. These are really flattering but not so tight in the crotch that I feel exposed. I've never been someone who lounges around in workout or pajama-like clothes, but these I would just wear with a hoodie if I was doing some chores around the house or some neighborhood errands and I wouldn't feel like a slob doing it.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

5 Star Black Tank; White Is Too Sheer
I love the fit and middle-weight of the black Splendid tank. It's long enough not to give a sneak peak but not so long that it blankets over pants awkwardly. Really flattering. Straps are thick enough to wear a normal bra but not so thick that it looks like a sports tank. I bought it in black and white, and I love the black...but the white is way too sheer. When I saw the weight of the black, I just assumed the white would be the same, but it feels thinner and I can see my skin color through it. Booooooo. Still looking for a good white tank. Why is this so impossible to find?

More Like Clear Jersey V Neck Tee
I know it says very light in the title, but that doesn't really describe how sheer the top is. Wish it had said "sheer" in the description or that the model's bra was visible as mine was when I put this on, so that I could have made a more informed decision before purchase. The white version of this shirt is practically clear. If that's what your after, this is for you. (The fit is great.) But if you're desperately seeking a white t-shirt that isn't so sheer that your freckles are visible through it, not so much. Sigh. My quest for a white shirt that isn't see-through continues.

Comfy and cute PJ shorts
I live in these so I bought a second pair when they were on sale. The fabric is soooo soft, and the lace panel is a little sexy. I'm 5'5" and the hem loosely falls just below the cheeks.

Gorgeous and unique, high fabric quality
I bought this as a bridesmaids dress for a friend's wedding next fall and can't wait until then to wear it. (Gonna double up on the wedding-wear and wear it as a guest to someone else's next month.) The dress is simple, but not boring. The cut of the top is so unique and flattering to the collarbones (sticking to bracelets and earrings to not distract from it). Great fabric that hugs without being too clingy.

Cozy layering piece
I bought this in the camel and the grey and love both. Loose oversize fit without being gigantic and body-swallowing.

Super-cute, perfect size, 4.5 stars
I was looking for a medium-sized cross body bag that could hold my wallet, phone, a reporter's notebook, and a small cosmetics bag--this def holds all that, and has clean lines to boot. The animal print goes with everything without being boring. The one prob with the bag is that a few times the front button has popped open (and it doesn't seem to be just when the bag is full). Nothing ever falls out since there's a zip too, but it's an annoyance (and a target) to look like you're walking around with a wide open bag.

Sharp in the shoulders, boxy in the body
Sigh. I am desperate for more blazers for work, so I rolled the dice and bought this piece when it was final sale, because onscreen, it looked perfect. Materials-wise, this has "good stuff in it" as my mom would say. Unfortunately, the fit is yuck. The model definitely has it clipped in the back in the pics where her jacket is closed because this waist is SO boxy and oversized in the waist. With buttons open, it's worse, the jacket is completely shapeless. I can't even have the buttons moved to make it a tighter fit when closed because of where the pockets are located, so this might not be something a tailor can save. Also, the shoulders are pointy, so it looks a bit 80s there, but if the rest of the silhouette matched, that might have been alright. It's just a weird combo. I really don't know what I'm going to with this. Even if I consign, I'm not going to get even a quarter of what I paid for this. I guess I learned my lesson about final sale items.

Beautiful construction
Bought these on sale (50% off!) in the cognac brown. They are so streamlined and smooth--really beautiful construction. I have the See by Chloe Lace Up Wedge Booties in black and they are my most favorite things in the universe and I can't find another pair anywhere--so I wanted to have an alt pair of comfortable wedge booties so I didn't wear the SBCies to bits. But these are more than just place filler shoes. I'm wearing them with slim leg pants and leggings and blazers--mega-cute. Agree that the high instep makes putting them on a little more time-consuming than usual but they feel great on. (And I have high arches so sometimes boots hurt them if I wear them for hours on end--these don't!) The bottoms are slippery so I'm going to have to put something on them so I don't slip in my office kitchen.
