Beautiful!
I've had a crush on this dress since I saw it in the runway coverage of the A&O spring show. I'm 5feet 6, 113 lbs and the 2 fits me perfectly. I don't even have to have the armholes taken in, which I usually do. The crisp cotton fabric is very fresh. Sorry, but polyester just can't compete. They call it a ball dress, but I could see wearing it in the daytime with flat sandals. My only gripe is the way the print is laid out: there's a big blue circle over the tummy and one on the tush. But my husband loves the dress and said the circle looks fine on someone slim.

Fantastic pants
These pants are gorgeous and incredibly flattering. The wool fabric is soft and rich, the color is delicious, neutral, but definitely a pretty green. I'm 5'6", 115 pounds and I ordered the 4. They fit a little smaller than some 4's, but are perfect in the waist, thigh, rear - everywhere fit matters. The legs are just narrow enough without being super skinny. This is an incredibly classic trouser and I know I'll wear them for years. The waist is high enough that it doesn't bulge out under sweaters the way low waists sometimes do. It gives me a totally flat tummy, even when I tuck a shirt in. Yay!

Great casual pants
I wear these light weight pants for summer hiking in the Rocky Mountains.( No reason not to look cute while exercising.) I bought them first in plain khaki, then ordered the black when they went on sale. I'm 5'6 or 7, 115 lbs and the 27 fits perfectly and are very flattering. They wash well. Like many cotton pants, they stretch out a little, then tighten up when they're washed and put in the dryer. Cargo pants are a classic by now, and the pockets are so functional for my compass, lip balm, sunscreen, etc.

The perfect black jeans
I've been longing for the perfect black jeans, and now I've found them. I'm usually a 27 or 26 in jeans- 5'7", 116 pounds. I ordered these in a 26 because I didn't want them as slouchy as in the photo. They fit really well, in the waist, the rear, in the length, and the legs are narrow. But if you want a slouchier look, I'd suggest ordering up a size or more. The coated effect is nice, and doesn't make these into a leather wannabe. But it brings them up a level from plain ole denim. It feels like they have a lot of stretch in them.

Beautifully made
These sandals have a simple, sophisticated European designer look. (You know the one I mean, it starts with a C and is designed by a woman.) The leather is handsome and very soft. The only problem I had with them, and it was a deal breaker, is even with a Velcro closing, the ankle strap was too loose. Ok, I admit to having skinny ankles, but they're not freaky thin. The sandals just didn't look good with a strap that didn't hug the ankle,, so I sadly send them back.

Cute modern cargos
These are cute! I'm normally a 27, sometimes 26 in jeans that run big, but the 27 in these pants fits well. I like the nice, narrow leg that isn't tight. The fabric on the front pockets doesn't look as different from the rest of the pant as in the picture. That's a good thing.

Perfect white jeans
I love these jeans! I paid attention to other reviewers' comments that they run big, and ordered a 26 instead of my usual 27. I am 5'7", 116 pounds and they really fit, but not like a baggy, slouchy boyfriend jean. They are almost a skinny jean for me, except that the thighs aren't tight. The waist doesn't gap, and hits high enough that it doesn't create any muffin top. The fabric is light enough for a summer jean. I'd like to find them in a dark blue or black.

Cute and comfy
I'm normally a size 8, and the 8 fits perfectly. I wore them with litlte toe covers (like 1/4 peds) the first time but I think they'll work barefoot too. I have no idea how long they'll last and I'm afraid they might stretch out a little since the leather is soft, but a smaller size wouldn't work in the length. I got the gold, which is gorgeous and will go with everything. They remind me of Tom's - in between a shoe and a slipper. They're so light that I'll think nothing of throwing them in a suitcase as an alternative to sandals.

A yummy sweater
This very soft and cozy but not heavy sweater is "inspired by" an Alexander Wang design, and looks great. I ordered it in a S, and wasn't thrilled, so I ordered the XS. The neckline, sleeves, armholes, and overall shape were better in the smaller size. This is a fitted style that looks best snug, like a well-cut tee. I'm a 2-4 on top, 5'7", 118 pounds and the XS was perfect. I wear it tucked into low-waisted black or gray pants. I'm thrilled.

A splendid Splendid
Anyone who's ever worn a Splendid tee know how soft and comfy they are. I wear Henleys for hiking in the mountains. This one is light and cool, and it drapes nicely. I got a Small, which is my normal size, and it fit well. My only gripe is the buttons and tabs meant to secure rolled up sleeves. I think that's such a dorky look. The first thing I do when I get a top like that is cut off the buttons and the tabs. I wore the sleeves rolled up on a warm day, and they stayed in place just fine.
