Great summer investment!
This is a very well constructed bustier top with boning to hold it in place. The length hits just below my ribs and this is the perfect piece to pair with high waist skirts, especially the midi length so in favour this season. The only minus I would give this top is that the straps are made of a cheap looking material - would have been nicer if it was made in the same sturdy, crisp cotton twill as the rest of the bustier. I probably could have done with a size 0 since it's quite stretchy but the size 2 gives me room to breathe. Overall very pleased with this purchase.

Considering a second pair
My first pair of Blank denim jeans and I am hooked! This pair beats all my designer denim hands down in terms of fit and comfort! I went with my usual denim size and it was a bit of a squeeze and wiggle to get into the jeans initially but after awhile they fit beautifully. The denim is soft and super comfy, but doesn't stretch out like other jeans which have a high stretch content. Blank's denim holds well throughout the day. Am considering a second pair because this wash goes with everything and I find myself reaching for it everyday.

a must-have for the lingerie drawer
I am a size 0/2 and since there was no size XS on Shopbop, I took the S/M. At first I was worried that these knickers might be too big or loose, but in fact they are just right. They skim nicely and the elastic band doesn't cut in at all. Supremely comfortable, stayed put on me all day, didn't ride up. Virtually seamless too, so perfect to wear with dresses. Not sure about paying full price for these (I got them with a discount code), but if they go on sale, stock up!

Beautiful, everyday necklace
Very happy with my purchase - this is one of the more classically simple and chic hamsa designs I've seen, and the little diamond in the centre gives it a special touch. The chain is a good length for me (there are two clasp rings so you can adjust the length), and the pendant is so lightweight you'll hardly notice you have anything on. Beautiful and delicate, great for everyday wear and layering.

Lingerie drawer staple
Love this pair! The lace is sexy but the cut is super comfy. No riding up, no biting into flesh, no awkward lumps or bumps spilling out. I am a size 0/2 and got the XS. Perfect fit. Planning to stock up.

Easy breezy
This is the perfect easy, breezy summer dress. The material is lightweight, soft and breathable, so it's perfect for warmer months. You could also layer a cami and tights under it for cooler weather. I found it a tad on the short side, so I wear shorts underneath it, just in case! Can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this shirtdress, and I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Great stocking stuffer
Got this for my nieces for X'mas, they all loved it. Wish I kept a set for myself too.

Adorable dress
This is the cutest dress ever! Yes, it's expensive for a cotton dress, but the print is really unique and the colours bring a smile to my face immediately. The cut is adorable too - the fit and flare style will suit just about anyone and I love the puffed sleeve detailing. Having said that however, I found that the scoop neckline was much too low for me and I need to wear a bandeau under the dress to avoid indecent exposure. The bodice is also cut quite small, so anyone over a B cup will probably find it a tad uncomfortable. The waist seems to be cut a bit higher than normal too, so this dress probably won't be suitable for those with long torsos. It's made of 100% cotton and also lined with a light, airy cotton voile, which I'm very pleased about because it's so breathable and comfortable. Can see myself getting plenty of wear out of this dress in summer!

Didn't win me over
This pair is just meh. It fits true to size for designer denim, but it wasn't very flattering on me. In fact it made my legs look chunkier than all my other pairs of jeans, including my humble Levis. For designer denim I expected much more. Also, the rise on this pair is quite high and I didn't feel comfortable in it. Maybe I'm too used to low-rise jeans (7.5 inches rise). Loved the broken-in look of this pair but sadly I'm going to have to return this.

My second set
This is my second set of Stella McCartney's "Days of the week" knickers. I love that it comes in a boxed set which makes my lingerie drawer easy to organise. And I also appreciate that the knickers are made from natural, breathable fabrics like cotton and silk - can't stand the nylon and polyester underwear dominating the market now. Knocked off 1 star for the price of this set, which has gone up by around $20 since I bought my first set a few years ago.
