A Very Expensive Nightgown
Okay - so I'd wanted this since I saw it full price at a large dept store for the pre-spring collection. Finally, it went on sale and I somehow managed to find the last size 10 in the system. I didn't realize how small this line runs. They must mean a "size 8/size 10 (on a bad day)" for their larger sizes. This shirt is really funky, not extremely wearable unless for a beach cover-up or a nightgown, and even then, I wouldn't want to be seen on the beach in this. You can NOT have curves if you wear this - the puckering and pin-tucking on the dress will pull and all the details are lost if you are a curvy girl. This is going back immediately. Only saving grace for this dress is the beautiful lavender colored stripes. Ugh - what a shame.

TOO SEXY
I didn't know it was possible for a dress to be too sexy, but this is - I'm an 8 - 10, and pear shaped. This dress is WAY too tight, and the material is far too sheer. You need a very petite frame to pull this dress off to make it look appropriate for whatever the occasion. It's far too sexy for a curvy girl - you'll look a little vulgar wearing it if you have ANY junk in da' trunk, unfortunately. :(

Silly and Cute
As soon as I received these, I posted these on my Facebook "mobile uploads" and I got a million comments on where to get these. They are hilariously over-the-top. I ordered these as Christmas presents for my girlfriends who are all in their 20s because they're silly, cute and a little dose of luxury. Be careful though, on my first wear, upon taking them off for the night, the "R" snapped. Be a little delicate with these when putting then on or taking them off. I suggest delicately stretching them out before wearing for the first time and taking them off one at a time rather than in a bunch as you would with your regular, run-of-the-mill supermarket silly bandz.

Average..
I'm not all that thrilled with this dress for two reasons: 1.) The Large is REALLY tight!. Note: I'm a size 8/10 in most dresses and usually wear a Large so I can have a little room in my clothes, especially in this line and 2.) the material isn't what I expected for the price. It's somewhat itchy, and I'm considering returning this dress for something else.

SO CUTE!
I'm a curvy girl with a booty, and this skirt is perfection. It's form-fitting, but NOT overly sexy to where you can wear this to a nice, conservative event if worn with a blazer as paired on the website. I can't wait to rock this at a bar/club, or going to a ladie's luncheon with ballet flats :)

Bad@$$ Paul Bunyan Boots
These are a little "Jenny from the Block" and "Paul Bunyan's Sister" mixed together - they are rugged, city-chic, on-trend and somehow timeless all at the same time.My guy friends are like, "uh, are those hiking boots with heels?" and somewhat put off, but hey - I love them. I wear them with everything from the T by Alexander Wang fitted long sleelve black sweater dress + a leather jacker to just jeans and a t-shirt and they add some major cool points to the look. I usually wear a 9.5 in boots/10, I got the 10 + a small pad for the ball of my foot and they fit like a glove w out any pain whatsoever.

Uh-MAZING..
Can't stop wearing this dress. Got it this past Saturday (in black from another store) and I've been living in it since then. I like my clothes somewhat loose, and I'm about an 8/10 (and since I've experienced most of Alexander Wang's clothing to be somewhat small for girls with hips), I ordered a Large in this. it's gorgeous, drapey and of course, effortlessly chic. A must have for the Fall. I might have to order the colors available on this site :)

Expensive for What it is..
Honestly - I got this dress for work (work in conservative finance industry) and returned it because it really doesn't do much for what I paid. It's a basic sheath dress, the material is slightly itchy and a bit too heavy and keeps in warmth. I realized that in order to make it somewhat cute and better fitting, I would have to incur at least $100 extra in alterations to the sleeves and waist of the dress. Unless you have the time and energy to do so, skip and find other work pieces from their line.

Eh.. You get what you pay for..
I ordered these originally and recently returned them for the Theory leather shorts which are 3 times the price of these. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for with these.. These shorts add quite a bit of bulk to the area most women have a problem with - their hips and their butt. The five pocket detailing and the quality of the leather (it's rather thick and heavy to both the eye and when touched) make these unflattering to women larger than a size 6. Granted, that's probably a personal opinion - but still, hugely disappointed with these. SKIP.

Sexy Pirate Shirt
Searched high and low for this blouse after I saw the Equipment ad that paired this with a short leather skirt in a fashion magazine. So glad I searched on here as a last resort! I love the fit of this shirt - I got the large and usually wear a size 8 - 10. Drapes beautifully on the body and will be in my closet for years to come. Am actually considering buying another one as a spare, just in case I wear the one I ordered into the ground :)
