For summer days and nights
I've been looking for a white broderie anglaise dress like this for ages - short, cinched at the waist, boat-necked and with an interesting lace pattern This is a unique piece that stands out from the millions of other white lace/crochet dresses that emerge every summer. The material is decent and comfortable and it's well made enough. I found it fit true to size. I bought an S based on previous reviews and it was too big just about everywhere. I normally wear an XS, which is what I should've gotten - I'm 5'1, 110lbs, and the S hit me just above the knee. I took it to the tailor to be taken in at the shoulders and sides and had it hemmed to hit around mid-thigh, and it was worth the money because now it is perfect :)

Pretty, but not really worth the price?
If half star ratings were allowed I'd give this 3.5 stars. The good: The colour is lovely and bright. The material feels really nice as well. The cut's interesting and the ruffles drape nicely. It's very comfy and fits true to size - I'd take a size down if you're between sizes because of the elastic. The bad: workmanship isn't great - e.g. quite a few loose threads - considering it's almost $400. It's also not the most figure-flattering, though it looks cute on. The silk creases /really/ easily. I'm considering returning it because I think I could get a better quality dress for the same amount of money, but at the same time I like it enough not to want to bother...

Nice, but wouldn't purchase again
I love Equipment shirts, but I wish I'd gone for a brighter colour instead of the black. The black has a slightly grey sheen to it, which makes it good for casual wear though. The material is excellent quality as usual and the shirt's super comfy. It's also shorter than the measurements state it is - even on me, and I'm only 5'1", the shirt comes up just below my hips. It's good length for tucking in, but I'd bought it to wear as a dress and it's not 30" long as stated here - more like 27", which is slightly shorter than most of the Equipment signature shirts.

Perfect pink jeans.
For reference: I'm 5'1" with some curves. These are ankle cropped skinnies on me. FIT: great. Took my usual size (25) - they're a tiny bit snug in the waist and a bit tighter through the legs (as on the model), but based on previous experience the Japanese twill will stretch out, so I think these will stretch out to fit perfectly. They're still comfy. CUT: super flattering and despite the pink, slimming! The fabric is wonderful. COLOUR: the pink is a touch bluer and dustier compared to the photo, but it's a beautiful neutral that goes with anything. At the same time the pink is a nice pop of colour and change from blue/black! Love.

Good value!
Very flattering earrings that look more expensive than they cost on... the backs are quite tight, which I like because they won't fall off easily, especially because the posts have double grooves.

Classic cool.
High quality sunglasses that look exactly as pictured. Classic but quirky frames in a great tortoiseshell - these will always be in style.

great bargain!
As other reviewers have stated, these definitely look way more expensive than they are. They're a nice size - I'm quite small so I wouldn't want them any bigger, but they add a really pretty touch without being too showy. Very worth it!

cute!
I love this. It's great for shorter girls like me because it comes up in the front, and it looks good both with and without the waist tie. It's lovely and floaty, but the print keeps it from being overly girly. Very flattering shape in a nice material. I'm really pleased I bought this!

perfect for summer!
The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that it's very long, and not the easiest thing to wear with jeans/skirts without a lot of material bunching up (or sticking out in the case of skirts!). Still looks good though :) To be fair I'm only 5'1" - it hits me mid-thigh. I can wear it as a dress, though it's quite sheer so it needs a slip to do that. I love it regardless. The quality is great, lovely material that feels almost like suede, and super lemon is wonderfully flattering colour. I do think it fits true to size - buy your usual size for an oversized fit like on the model.

nice and neat
Provides a clean look for coats that just don't suit the long dangling ends of regular scarves! Nice soft chunky knit scarf that's very versatile - I like how you can fold and scrunch it up to make it look smarter like on the model, or just slip it on and scrunch it for a more casual look.
