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.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

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.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

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.

So nice, I bought it twice
This was more money than I'd like to spend on a winter hat but I bought it in the olive green because it was exactly what I've been looking for the past 2 seasons. A nice pop of not too bright green to bring out the hazel green color of my eyes. (Yeah, yeah. Whatever, you all do stuff like that too.) It's warm, and not so tight on my giant Irish head that it flattens my hair. I actually managed to lose the hat somehow week 1--and I bit the bullet and threw down another $68 to buy it again. Now I guard this thing like it's the crown jewels.

Bring em back! Best shoes ever.
So comfortable. So unique and gorgeous. Bought these in black last season and wore them ad nauseumwith black tights and fitted jeans and leggings. Had the bottoms re-heeled this fall and they look like new again. I've gotten more compliments on these boots than any other shoes or clothing I own. They give great height without sacrificing balance, I can actually pick up the pace in these. I have high arches so sometimes boots make them ache if I've worn them for hours on end--not these.

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.
