Tore Immediately
I'm sending these back, with a hole in one leg after roughly 1 hour of wear! I don't think I've ever had tights tear, so that these did so almost immediately was disappointing. While the top of these is more comfortable than the average pair of tights because of the lack of a middle seam, I found that they sagged at the crotch a bit (probably because of the lack of a middle seam). For $34.00, I certainly expected more in staying power and fit.

Impeccably Constructed Leather Pants
After weeks of consideration of these leggings and months of looking at leather pants, generally, I caved and purchased these. I was strongly influenced by the universally glowing reviews which talk about how well made these pants are, how soft the leather is, and how flattering they fit. It's all true! People say these run large. I ordered my regular size 4 (I'm 5'8, 137 lbs) and found them to be pretty close to skin tight. In fact, I'm contemplating ordering a 6 just to compare to see if they might be a less aggressive look. They are long, but as others mentioned, you can tuck up if you need to and the leather is think enough that there's no bunching. I'm still trying to convince myself I'll actually WEAR these (they may be a little edgy for my personal aesthetic), but I can certainly vouch for the quality and the fit. Certainly worth trying them!

Basic beach cover/sundress
I liked but didn't love this dress. It's fine for throwing over your bathing suit, but you can get something very comparable to serve that purpose at Old Navy for $15. I really don't see how I would dress this item up at all (the model is wearing it with booties but I could never pull that off) so I just don't think it's a piece I can justify keeping in my closet.

Fun, lightweight knit
I like Theory's knits and this one is no exception. As usual with Theory, I sized up to a Medium and could not have gone any smaller. My one hesitation with this item is that it is banded and rather short. I'm worried that, when paired with jeans, it has a potential to ride up and be belly bearing, which isn't a look I like. But I adore the yellow and white stripes, so I'll play around with it at home to see how it wears. This is a rather sheer knit--I would only wear it to work with a tank or camisole under it.

Good basic, doesn't feel like cashmere
I am planning to return this. It's a nice, if not particularly interesting basic. I was surprised to read it is a cashmere blend because it definitely feels like a basic cotton knit. I also found the length VERY long (and I'm 5'9") which I don't always think is particularly flattering, especially in a thin, form fitting knit. I just couldn't imagine what I'd actually end up wearing this with.

Gorgeous summer tunic, weird shoulders
I loved the gauzy fabric on this TB tunic and thought it would be perfect for my upcoming honeymoon to Africa. However, once I put it on, I realized that the shoulders are pintucked (or pleated?) with the result that they poof out quite dramatically. Not a great look and my husband definitely didn't like it. A disappointment because I really liked the rest of this tunic...

Looks Like PJs
I decided to finally brave a romper for my upcoming honeymoon. The color and fit of this one is great. However, the fabric is a soft cotton jersey so that once on, this looks indistinguishable from PJs. Had it been in silk or even a poly blend, I would have kept it, but I would never wear this fabric in this cut out in public. Definitely disappointing.

Classic DVF, with a twist!
I loved the look of this dress online, but ultimately ended up returning it because it wasn't right for the occasion (casual, outdoors rehearsal dinner) I was shopping for. Although the polka dots on the sleeves give it a more fun feel than the basic DVF wrap dress, this still felt a bit too work-y for me. Also, something about the patterned sleeves wasn't super flattering and had the effect of making my entire arm look the same size (rather than larger at the top and thinner through the forearm). This would be a great dress for the office (if you work in a fashion forward setting) or to have for brunches, etc.

Great white non-sleeveless dress!
i ordered this dress as a rehearsal dinner possibility as we will be outside in August in San Francisco which means CHILLY weather. So many white dresses are light and sleeveless that I jumped at this one because I knew the sleeves would help keep me warm. DVF often runs small for me, especially in clingy cuts, so I ordered a 6 though am typically a 4 in other brands. The fit is perfect. I'm 5'9 so I found this to be a TAD short, but my fiancee loved the length on me. The dress clings in all the right places and has these two panels of non-crochet material running down the sides which keeps the look very flattering. I plan to dress this up with some fun, colored sandals and think it will be a dress I can wear again and again!

Good basic but questionable fabric
I ordered this jacket along with the Tahari Melissa blazer in my hunt for a red blazer. This one fit nicely and is a true, deep red. However, the fabric is quite thin. It arrived rumpled and, worse, the seam on the left arm was already splitting in one place and looked poised to split in other areas as well. Overall, it just seemed too thin and flimsy for me to feel like I would be able to wear it frequently.
