Still deciding
The front is a comfortable, soft, slinky jersey material. The back is stiff, and I assume is meant to be that way since the material is organza. I didn't realize the material was so stiff when I purchased the shirt, and I'm not sure I like the stiff fabric. The shirt does hang nicely, however. While the side cut-outs are a bit revealing, the hang of the fabric prevents the sides from gaping open so it is not too revealing. I'm still on the fence. According to my reading, organza can wrinkly very easily. I don't know how that will affect the wear of the shirt... A stiff, wrinkly back probably won't look too good. The flowers on the lace back are a flocked/brushed material.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Sad it didn't work
Such a cute top. Unfortunately, it pulled across the chest/shoulders on me. I do not have a large chest so it was probably due to my shoulders. I usually wear XS to S and purchased the S. I really wanted it to work. Love the crisp, starched white collar and the band hem on the sleeve. The top did not gap open excessively in the back - the opening is tasteful. FYI: The shirt closes with a hook and eye at the top then several buttons with elastic button loops. Sad face.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

I like it, but too big
I like this dainty, full skirt. The S was a bit too big and hung on my hips instead of at my waist as I expected. I will try an XS, although the other JOA skirt I purchased in XS was too small. I'm hopeful the XS will work in this one. Nice fifties look. The crinoline may take a bit getting used to. Note that the striped fabric is also textured.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

OK
I can't put my hands on the reason, but the shoe did not have the impact I expected. I was left feeling just - meh. I think it might have been the color, which I thought/think would function as a neutral. The metal straps on the pair I received were scratched when I took them out of the box. That makes me question how well the shoe will hold-up over time. Not impressed.

Vibrant pink
I sized down a half size because I sometimes need to in JC. Not this time. The pink is quite bright. The shoe is cute. I'lll try my regular size and see how it works out.

Still too big
I wear a 7.5 and sized down to a 7 as suggested. The shoe is still too big. It feels and looks a bit clunky, but has lots of padding. I wasn't crazy about the way they look in person. I do like the navy blue, however.

Comfy.
I have these in the silver and came for the black. I had to size down a half size from 7.5 to 7. These are one of the few pairs of slip-ons that work for me. I have a slightly narrow foot and most just don't fit well. The footbed is very comfortable.

Love 'em
GREAT pair of coated jeans. Fabric is unbelievably soft and comfortable, not stiff like other coated jeans I've tried. I tried my usual size 26 and, based on reviews, size 25. They both fit. While the 25 was obviously tighter, it wasn't unreasonably so. In fact, the 25 fit the same as some of the 26s I have in other brands. The 26 might have been a tad more comfy, but, after sitting a couple of times, I could tell that they would loosen up. I decided to stick with the 25 to avoid excessive stretching that would ruin the close fit. These are killer jeans. I want more! Oh, only problem was that one pair I received had a flaw where a patch of coating was missing - check yours carefully. I bought black, and they are a very good leather alternative. Fantastic!

Too much like mom jeans for me
I can wear a 26 or 27 in Blank denim, depending on the jeans. I ordered these in a 27. The legs were form fitting, but not skintight. They were a little too large in the waist, but could have been taken in. It wasn't worth the effort, though, because I didn't feel they were flattering to my rear. I liked the color. Maybe the 26 would have been better, but I was too turned-off by the look to try.

Hmmm
I purchased S instead of XS, because reviewers of other JOA skirts said they fit small. Well, this one hung a lot lower on me than on the model, because the waist was a bit too big. I tried another JOA skirt in XS, but that was too small. Maybe I'm just between sizes... The material is not so great. I had trouble getting the half polyester, half crinoline under-layer to work. I didn't like the way the waist band is cut from the fabric. It goes against the stripes in a way that made the skirt look like it was falling or was not pulled up completely (hard to explain). Just ok. About what you'd expect for the price.
