So nice, I bought it twice
This was more money than I'd like to spend on a winter hat but I bought it in the olive green because it was exactly what I've been looking for the past 2 seasons. A nice pop of not too bright green to bring out the hazel green color of my eyes. (Yeah, yeah. Whatever, you all do stuff like that too.) It's warm, and not so tight on my giant Irish head that it flattens my hair. I actually managed to lose the hat somehow week 1--and I bit the bullet and threw down another $68 to buy it again. Now I guard this thing like it's the crown jewels.

Bring em back! Best shoes ever.
So comfortable. So unique and gorgeous. Bought these in black last season and wore them ad nauseumwith black tights and fitted jeans and leggings. Had the bottoms re-heeled this fall and they look like new again. I've gotten more compliments on these boots than any other shoes or clothing I own. They give great height without sacrificing balance, I can actually pick up the pace in these. I have high arches so sometimes boots make them ache if I've worn them for hours on end--not these.

Adorable, a bit larger than expected
I was hoping this would fit tight on my natural waist, but it's looser so it goes lower and sits more on my hips when I wear it with a dress. It's still gorgeous, so I wore it low and since it has the extra room, now I plan on wearing it over some blazers, etc. It's like body jewelry and really changes the look of plain staple clothes. I bought the silver which looks even better in person than online; can't speak for the gold.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Love the look not the space & durability
Appearance-wise, this was just what I wanted. It wasn't gigantic but inch-wise should have fit what I need. Unfortunately, the actual storage space inside the bag is built so that it's a really tight squeeze. (Large outside, tiny inside!) My sunglasses case (admittedly larger than a norm glasses case but hardly epic) barely fits and takes up a third of the bag. Fitting that, a wallet, and a loose powder in the bag was pushing maximum capacity. The leather is also very stiff--it practically gave me a paper cut, so there was no hope for give. Maybe the leather wears over time but I'm not going to find out since on the second day of use a bolt on the strap spray loose and broke. Couldn't have been the weight of what was inside as it was an empty Sigg bottle and a wallet. Very disappointed and I will be returning this item.

Cute without trying
Simple but just the right amount of unusual. Great backdrop for big necklaces. Fabric feels soft and it's really warm to boot. Will be taking this on a ski trip this month to wear to dinner/karaoke on our night out. Have worn this with jegging-like jeans and a skirt and it looks great with both. I'll skip wearing this with most of my low-waisted jeans, though, as I'd be exposing too much back.

Great, lightweight alternative to jeans!
Fit is really slim, so while it's a boyish style, it's definitely a feminine look. Love the zippers and long pockets.

Super cute, super comfortable
Got these on sale and feel like I made out like a bandit. They're really comfortable and versatile; I wear them to work and on weekends. The brown color is great--with the tips looking just a little worn--and I feel like they're better than the black for spring. Have mostly worn them with jeans and dress pants but think I could totally get away with wearing them with girly dresses.
