Cool Watch, Weird Clasp
After my last Michael Kors watch wore out after 2 years of hard use, I decided to order this watch to try something a bit new. The watch is really pretty-- a nice sleek design, much thinner than the classic Kors models, and a pretty minimalist face. It's sort of half way between a sporty, men's watch and a more sleek female one. I have to say though that the clasp is absolutely maddening! There is no marked clasp not the back and no, like, button you squeeze to easily "release" the watch and loosen it. To get it off, you have to stick your finger between your wrist and the exact right spot on the band and pull outward (hard) to get the thing off. I also think it looks a bit cheap without a clasp, sort of like the stretchy watches you'd get at the drugstore.

Amazing with one Caveat
I absolutely love these James Perse tees. The fabric has a beautiful texture, and they feel light weight and paper thin-- a great classy basic for summer. My one gripe with these shirts though (and I have many of them) is that they stain very very easily and for some reason the stains don't come off very well. After ruining three of them, I take them off whenever I'm cooking or feeding my toddler!

Wash Out
This was a lovely material but the color was very, very light. On a pale person like me, it was completely washing me out. I had to return it.

Not for Me
I was really excited to get this dress, but I found the cut sort of awkward-- it's VERY short and also a bit wide and blousey. On a very tall skinny person that might look cool, but on me, it just wasn't working.

Baggy Knees
I wanted to really love these jeans. They're a gorgeous color, with a nice matte finish. I've been a bit disappointed by how they wear though-- after one wear, I find that they stretch out a bit, getting baggy around the knees and a little loose at the waist. Washing them shrinks them back, but then they stretch again. If I didn't see the label, I wouldn't have guessed these were premium denim.

J Brand Does it Again
I buy almost all my jeans from J Brand, and this pair reminded me why-- an incredibly comfortable skinny jean, with the perfect amount of rise, and a gorgeous finish. You can't go wrong with these. Worth every penny.

Unbelievably Poor Quality
I love the design of these boots, the exact kind of edgy moto look I was going for. The boots, however, are incredibly poorly made. I've had them about 9 months now, and in multiple spots the black is starting to wear away, revealing a white, flaky plastic that looks just terrible. (This is a big issue on the part of the sole that is visible on the side, right where the leather meets the sole.) I've also had to get the heel resoled, despite the fact I wear them only intermittently. This shoe is Payless quality at Frye price. I'm frankly surprised Shopbop is still selling it with so many complaints. Be smarter than me, and save your money!

Cool Top
This top looks lovely paired with a black pencil skirt and is already a great go-to piece in my work wardrobe. I'm not a huge fan of scuba material generally, but it is nice that it is never wrinkled and very easy to clean. The cut is really nice too. One thing I hadn't realized is that it's pretty structured with shoulder pads. Still, a great purchase.

Just Love It
I was skeptical this top would work for me. I'm a somewhat curvy girl, and couldn't imagine the arm cuts being flattering. I have to say though I how very wrong I was. This top looks amazing paired with a pencil skirt and is incredibly flattering. The high-low aspect of the peplum is also a nice touch. it was a bit stretchier than I realized-- this is not a still, structured top-- but I've loved it since it arrived and am not looking back!

Great Design, Decent Fabric
I love the print of these skirt, and it fits wonderfully. The fabric though is not what I had imagined. It's very stretchy and almost a touch spandexy or scuba-like, without a lining. It looks good, but I wouldn't recommend it if you're not prepared to show your curves!
