Sailor on Dry Land
I purchased this necklace a couple of summers ago and it's still one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. It ups the "sweet" factor when added to any outfit, but I love to wear it with striped tees because this necklace feels "sailor" to me. Looks great solo or layered with similar length necklaces. I tend to pair it with a second necklace that features a similar delicate gold chain, equitable length, and a tiny heart charm.

Perfect "Modesty" Accessory 4 Tall Girls
Splendid does leggings better than any other designer. Super soft and can be washed endlessly (in cold water, delicate cycle, drizzle of lingerie wash) without fading. I consider these the perfect "modesty" accessory for us tall girls who love mini-dresses, but might give others the wrong idea if such dresses were worn against bare legs. I typically prefer bare legs, but too many situations call for a little more coverage and Splendid leggings are my "go-to" solution. These are oddly stretchy. At 5'10", they were still so long that I could have stretched the waist up over the top of my head. I suggest rolling the bottom of the leggings several times and tucking them into boots or booties for the perfect fit.

MAGIC!!!!!!
I was never a fan of any 7 style other than the "DoJo." Then, I happened upon these. Oh. My. Gosh. Within a couple of weeks of receiving the 7 skinny jean, I had already worn them so many times, I ordered a second pair (first time I ever broke my "never duplicate" policy). Even though these are "skinny," they are the perfect blend of stretch denim. They never bag at the knees and they look good with any and every style of top and footwear. And while I originally purchased both pairs last year, I have put them at the front of my current Fall closet. I wear these even on my "fattest" of "fat days" and I still look super slim. These are "magical pants." They look so good that if you were mugged, the thief would want your jeans instead of your wallet.

Like Floating
A terrific price point for an ethereal, paper-thin, well-formed dress. It's 4, not 5, stars because I had to spend money at the tailor to have the two front split seams lengthened by about two inches to make it wearable. If I had left it as it arrived, it would have been indecent. It also had to be shortened by a couple of inches because I wanted to wear it with flats. I wore a bralet underneath because the front does not provide enough coverage. But it looked perfect with the bralet and the back was still exposed as the dress intended.

Sophisticated and Edgy
I bought this top to pair with a Cynthia Rowley midi-length skirt and it was a fabulous ensemble. I purchased at full price several months ago (reviewed it then, but it never got posted... quite annoying) so I wish I could say I have been able to work it with more bottoms, but that hasn't been the case. The top is simply too revealing for work and the bandeau isn't wide enough if you're larger than a B cup. The top is also structured which means adding a floaty skirt or denim wouldn't look good. I have tried it with wide-legged pants and it's the best look other than the original one worn. It's a quality piece, but I regret the purchase for its lack of versatility and it's spendy price point, and it's maybe one of a few pieces I've regretted over the last several years.

Looks Sweet, but Is Sophisticated
I love Zimmermann swimwear though this is the first item of clothing I've purchased from the line. What a great first piece. I thought this was a dress -- and it looks like one - but it's actually a romper and given it's short length, it's much more feasible as shorts. It's best feature is the open back which is the perfect summer touch. I was worried the material and pattern would look "country farm girl," but it's much more sophisticated than that. It's very sweet looking, but also features a fit that gives it some major va-voom. The material also didn't wrinkle hardly at all which was a pleasant surprise. You'll love this piece. Wearable; a great travel piece, too.

Fabulous Cover-Up
Simply, this is a great cover-up. It is airy, perfectly oversized, and sheer enough to give a peek of the suit you're sporting underneath. The material is quality, but it wrinkled like mad after washing. It'll have to be steamed before wearing again. Spendy, but looks great with a lot of different colors and swimwear styles.

Holy Gorgeousness
IRO is a pricey line, but I absolutely love the pieces. This floaty, filmy, totally glamorous top is unbelievably beautiful. It's delicate so it's not a throw-on and go or toss in the suitcase item. Still, it looks as good with jeans as it does with a floaty mini-skirt or other dressier item. This top is incredibly beautiful and when it's on, you will feel so sexy; it borders on being celestial in its beauty.

Modesty Garment, Sleep, Lounging...
These were purchased as the modesty garment for the Cynthia Rowley skirt (also reviewed) I bought from Shopbop. They work perfectly. They run true to size, fit tall as well as petite bodies (at 5'10 they work for me as well as one of friends who also bought a pair and she's 5'3). I've worn them under the skirt -- so happy to report there was no riding-up and they looked like they were made for the skirt -- but also just for lounging. Super comfy!

Perfect for Sleep or Lounging
I thought these would be sleep only, but they're perfectly appropriate for lounging with close others. They're semi-transparent so if lounging, underwear is a must. I'm such a fan of Only Hearts. The pieces in the line are fairly priced, made of quality materials, and are (usually) washable on gentle cycle, and still look fantastic after several washes. My collection of Only Hearts underthings is growing because it's a great brand that, yay!, finally fits tall (I'm 5'10) without looking indecent.
