not as good as the Eddie
Nope. I had big expectations for this one because I thought it would be like the Eddie, only with the obnoxious logo emblem (which I admittedly wanted!). I have 3 pairs of the Eddie which I absolutely adore (in size 7, my usual size). These run bigger than the Eddie and I can tell that the half size down would be too small. Further, the leather is much harder on these and not nearly as soft as the Eddie. I also don't think the elastic band around it is attractive either. The Eddie is nice because it doesn't look bulky on the foot and I feel these do (for a petite girl at least). The 225 price tag is also just absurd. Some of my Eddies are falling apart already but I admittedly wear them everywhere. Tory, stick a logo on the Eddie, it would make a lot of people happy! I'll stick with that model from now on.

SERIOUSLY sexy yet versatile!!
I am so happy with this dress. It fits so, so so well. I bought the size 6 and I'm 5'1 100 pounds (32D/24/33) athletic but petite. It is so wonderful that it's reversible because the opposite way happens to look very classy while the front much more daring. This dress could actually pass for work backwards with a long cardigan and flats. I was afraid it would make me look flat but if it fits right it definitely doesn't, in fact it makes the girls look amazing! The only negative is massive nipple slip, I had to order the tape because this WILL happen in this dress. I bent down ever so slightly and it had already happened! The white stains easily too so you have to be extra careful. The fabric is beautiful and expensive looking. I'm so glad I didn't miss out on this one second time around!!

just a little off
I had high hopes for this necklace because I LOVE the cuff version, but I wasn't nearly as impressed with this one. I was hoping it would fall a little lower, even though I did measure, but it hit me at an awkward point (I have a larger chest for my size). It felt kind of flimsy and not as good quality as the cuff. It was cute overall, but not worth keeping to me.

Flexy!!
This thing is so cool. When it says adjustable, it really means adjustable. The whole bracelet is made of very bendy metal, you can even bend the little arrow parts not just the band. I am a major fan of cuffs and this is no exception. You can even wear it a little higher up the arm due to its adjustability. It's definitely a statement piece and something people will ask you about! It's pricey but the quality is there. I loved it so much I bought the necklace version. Ms. Richie is really climbing in my style books these days!

really nice but not for petites!
I love Velvet, it's fast becoming one of my favorite labels. This dress has a very lounge wear feeling to it, it's almost like wearing a pair of favorite sweat pants in dress form! As other reviewers mentioned, this is a thicker knit, but it's still not too thick for summer which makes it a a great transitional piece. I'm 5'1 and would have only needed to hem this 1 or 2 inches, but unfortunately due to my very petite structure it just overwhelmed me. I'd recommend this dress for more average height/build chicas. I was sad to return it!

Romantic
This is sooooo pretty. The silk is really light and slightly sheer (not sheer enough to be see through) and a really pretty deep royal purple. The elastic waist is also a nice touch because it adjusts to any body shape...however, I gave it a wear around the house and the top was too loose and flowy for my stature. I'm very petite and I would be afraid to wear this out without showing the goods at some point (I recommend a sticky bra). The straps are adjustable which helps, but when raised too high look awkward. I probably would have kept this if I had $165 to spare but for the price I just had to let it go since I wasn't blown away, sigh.

loose in all the wrong places
Bought the 24 (TTS) and was very happy with the waist fit but the legs were too loose and baggy. I think going down a size would make the waist too tight and the legs still a little too baggy. It's shame because the wash and the low rise are really sexy. The bell is huge, in a flattering way, but obviously would have to be hemmed a few inches if you're short (I'm only 5'1).

weird from the back
Sizing is TTS on these but I really did not like how the back looked. I think they would look much better without the frays in the back part. Unlike the picture the pockets also hang down far below the shorts which looks tacky. For a short this expensive, no dice.

thing is straight up ENORMOUS
Ok, the quality of this sweater is fantastic. It's actually a heavier knit than it appears in the picture and is by no means 'light' but is not overly heavy either...However...this thing is HUGE. I knew I was playing with fire when I read the models dimensions but I couldn't pass it up with the 15% ff discount. It went far below my knees and I just looked like I was wearing a potato sack. The deal breaker is how it almost bat wings at the top. The shoulders are too large for my dimensions so rolling or folding the sleeves did not work for me. At a minuscule 5'1 96 pounds I could NOT pull this sweater off. For all you taller, fuller figures out there this would be a winner. Wish it came in petite!!

runs really small
I always wear a size 7, even in Tory Burch Eddies which supposedly run 1/2 a size small...but not in these. These were really tight to the point where I couldn't see myself being comfortable in them. The leather is really nice, though, and the shoe is well constructed. I didn't like the elastic part just because I felt it took up too much of my foot if that makes sense, and I also didn't like the look of the leather tab on the back because it sticks up and looks kind of distracting. As most mentioned these are great throw on shoes, if they hadn't been too small I probably would have kept them.
