Very cute, frustrating Euro sizing
Cute shoes (in navy) for bumming around a boat- not frumpy, fairly chic, but they don't do 1/2 sizes so if you're in between you may not have a fit. I am a 6 to 6 1/2 and the 37 was way too big; the 36 is just a touch snug. Won't be hiking in them but I can wear them on my yacht and the soles won't mark the deck. Kidding, but you get the idea.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

GREAT in the white, charcoal defective
Love love love the white linen pant for vacation. Little bit see-through but it's really for covering up a suit. Rare to find such wide-leg pants that flatter a petite person...of course I had to hem but I will wear these all summer. I went right back and ordered the charcoal - unfortunately these didn't fit the same and the elastic waistband was slightly twisted. I got a 0 and they fit me really well (I am small, 5'1" and about 95).

Super cute and good quality
I like everything about this bottom: the quality seems good, the braid detail, the cute little dip in the back. It's a flattering cut. Anyone in good shape can wear this (30's ha, you could wear this in your 60's if you were in good shape!). I got the smallest size (I am 5'1", about 95, curvy given my size) and it fit great, no digging. Now I just need a top to match.

Requires an owner's manual to operate
There is literally a diagram showing you how to put this on and it's STILL a challenge. Not for the full-busted - unlike a lot of wrap bikini tops, this wrap adds no support. I just found it a little odd and unflattering.

Not for petite women/just ok
I like the idea of Shoshanna for small/slim women with full busts, but this suit doesn't work. I am not short-waisted, but it was too long in the torso and baggy, too. Weird fit. MIGHT have worked on a slim, tall woman with a D-cup (I ordered the PS/D size).
Sizing: Larger than Expected

I love these!!!!
XS fits me perfectly (I am quite small, usually a 00 or XXS)...of course they need to be hemmed but these are SUPER comfortable, really flattering palazzo pants that fall so nicely. I bought the white and the second they arrived, I ordered the charcoal. I will wear these all the rest of the summer and wear the darker pair into the LA fall. Too light to wear in LON except summertime.

Hmmmmmmm...it's ok
I needed a cover-up or two for a boat vacation and I ordered this in navy and in white. First of all, the XS is quite large - not so much that it's sized too big, but the cut is tent-like, yet the tunic is weirdly short (I am 5'1"). I guess it is meant to be a long shirt rather than a cover-up, and is intended for a much taller, larger person. It's not particularly flattering and does not look as expensive as it should. The other thing you realize is that the edging is actually the Tory logo...I don't buy Tory much, so didn't realize this. That said, on the navy, the edging/color combo/contrast makes it decently chic as long as you are not expecting to be sexy. The white is see through of course, which makes it look cheaper, and it's REALLY tent-y looking. I could see a tall girl looking ok in these tunics with shorts. I will keep the navy because I am leaving in two days :) but I don't recommend.

Totally gorgeous and sexy for A/B cup
I ordered this suit even given the reviews as it looked REALLY flattering. And it is. It's really sexy, the back view is gorgeous- but I am a 32D and there is no way, fashion tape or no, I was going to be able to wear this unless i stood absolutely still at just the right angle ;-) I am 5'1" and about 98ish and ordered the smallest size; it fit great except for the chest. This would look AMAZING on someone with a smaller chest that doesn't need any uplift. You won't be swimming but poolside you will look fab!

Cute, comfy, li'l cheap looking
I love my Sam Edelman captoe loafers more than anything, and they look more expensive than they are, so I thought I'd try these. These don't have that luxe look - they're pretty basic, the leather and snake straps don't look expensive, and the wedge heel faux leather is a weird, cheap-looking taupe. that said - they are REALLY comfortable, they do look cute from a distance, and in the 20% off sale they were $100 which is at best what they are worth. I might try to dye the wedge to make them better-looking. Sizing: I have a 6.5 in my Edelman loafers, so I knew to order a 6.5 in these- I am always between a 6 and a 6.5.

I wouldn't use the word
I used to wear Paige a lot and have since moved over to J Brand and Rag & Bone. I wanted more slouchy skinny jeans like the Rag & Bone Dash, and the Dash in white is sold out in a 23 everywhere, so I tried these. 1) They are NOT skinny jeans: they are more like a straight leg. They're not too wide to roll up, but they aren't narrow at the ankle when you do. 2) They are HUGE. I wear a 24 in most Paige for a snug fit. I am 5'2" and about 96 pounds. In a 23 these are enormous- not unwearable, but they have that "I lost a bunch of weight or borrowed my friend's jeans" look. One size smaller and they'd be perfect. I don't know yet if I'll return them or keep them as a weekend white jean and hope they shrink in the wash a bit. 3) On a positive note: reasonably soft, good quality white denim with no tacky show-through pockets or the like. They are also low-heels-length on (petite) me when unrolled, so tall girls should be careful of the length.
