A bit chunky but a good buy
As title suggests the case is a bit chunkier than I thought it would be. But it does protect the phone against dropping it. Obviously you still need a screen protector. The material is thick but pressing side buttons is very easy (just in case you were wondering). One point to make is that the material is very thick at the bottom of the phone near the home key which means when pressing the home key you inevitably press the cover. Annoying! The colour is a bit lighter than I expected (I got the Gettysburg Blue). The major downfall for this case however is that the material is matte which means that lint and dust stick to it very badly. Also makeup rubs off when you talk on the phone and the only way to get it off is to wipe it with a wet cloth. I have only had the cover a couple of days and it already I need to clean it (Im very careful with my belongings but dust etc is just attracted to this material). Still, I like this cover, very cute

Beautiful dress
I really love this dress, it is so pretty. I ordered the cream but unfortunately it totally washed me out. It looked terrible on me so I returned it. You need a olive or tanned complexion to pull this one off I think (even though it looks amazing on the model). In terms of sizing. I am a US 8 and always take a medium. The medium seemed fine for me but I do have a big bust so my chest kept it up. If I had smaller breasts I think the dress would have fallen down and I would have definitely needed a smaller size. I didnt like that the dress made my breast look tiny. It could have been because there was alot of material at the front, not sure?? Nice material too and I love the detailing on the back of the dress.

Versatility at its best.
This is going to be a spring, fall and winter staple for me, and even a cool summer day go-to. The dress/skirt is extremely versatile. You can wear it as a strapless dress or as a maxi skirt. You can wear it high on your waist or for a more relaxed look, on your hips with a little cropped jumper or top. The skirt is also extremely long which is perfect for taller people - mine is a medium and lying the skirt down measures 46 inches in length although for shorter/petite people you can either pull it up a bit or make the turnover part bigger. For fit wise - I am a US8 and normally a medium and the medium was perfect for me. Oddly enough the top of the dress is perfect for a dress around my bust (I am a 34D) but is also perfect when pulled down as a skirt (I am a 29-30 in jeans). The material has amazing stretch recovery. Also to be noted is how luxurious the fabric is. Thick but not too thick and amazingly soft. I am going to buy this is all the different colours. I am truly in love

My perfect bra
I absolutely fell in love with this bra when I tried it on. Firstly the fit is perfect, I am a 34D normally (Australian 12D) and it was like a second skin. Secondly, the material is sublimely soft - like all CK bras. They feel literally like I am wearing nothing. I like the fact that they are snug but not tight if that makes sense. Also they give you a lift but there is no artificial padding in the way. I also like that despite being a D the bra isnt gigantic. Some bras in a D are absolutely huge and very unflattering looking in the cup. This one is part of CK's coverage level 1 - that is it has smallest amount of cup coverage out of their whole collection. I still feel 'secure' and I am not hanging out which can be difficult with these type of bras, your breasts are literally 'out there' for all to see. This one subtly covers my breasts but makes them look amazing. LOVE. A definite everyday bra

Nice easy-to-wear piece.
I was really excited about getting this necklace. It is different but easy to wear with a simple tshirt/tank for a stylish everyday look. The silver I feel is nice, not too bright but not dull either. I think if the locket didnt have the pebbled look it may be a bit bright and trashy but the nuggets even this out. The chain is also nice and provides some added detail to the necklace. The necklace is very long, It looks great but to be honest is a bit annoying when I am walking because the necklace twists around alot. This is not a design fault obviously - just something to consider before purchase. One thing that is a let down about the necklace is the flimsiness of the clasp on the locket. Mine is very flimsy to the point that I am afraid it is going to break apart. The actual clasp wobbles in its hinge. I was hoping for a more stable hinge and clasp. I think if I didnt love the design I definitely would have returned it. To be honest I was expecting better quality.

Great everyday top
This is a great top that lives up to expectations. The material is like all Soft Joie in that it is beautifully soft to the touch. It is not sheer but a good thickness. Not sure about the white (I got the grey). The top looks just like the one pictured when tried on. Its baggy but not overly, the sleeves drape nicely and the top sits perfectly with jeans. For the fit, I always take a medium, I am a US 8 and 5'11 in height. I am curvy with wider shoulders and hips. This top fits perfectly for my frame. Please note the top isnt heaps long (gives the impression it is with the longer bit at the front). One other thing that may assist shoppers is that the top is wide. It was perfect for me but if you have a slight build you may need to size down to avoid the top drowning you. Overall, this top is the perfect top to comfortably wear with jeans. I will be wearing mine alot, especially with my Love Quotes scarves. A great buy

Great casual dress
This dress is perfect for everyday wear. It is comfortable yet looks great on. I love the racerback look and the way that it comes in at the waist. For the fit, as a previous reviewer stated, the skirt of the dress is a tulip style fit, that is, it comes in at the waist and at the bottom. If you have a more shapely figure, especially through your legs this dress may be rather tight on you. For me, I am a size 8US and quite tall (5'11) so I ordered a M. The dress is a few inches shorter on me than the model and is a bit tighter through the legs also. I have a curvier figure so this may account for that. However, there is no way I could have sized up in this dress, it would have been far too big in the top (I am a 34D bra size to give you an idea of my top size) and this dress is perfect in M. The dress sits very nicely at the waist. The material is very soft and the colour is a lovely dark blue colour. Not sure how it washes but if any probs I will post another review :)

Just what I have been looking for
This dress is exactly the dress I have been searching for. It is simple yet sexy. I can easily dress it up for cocktails or dress it down with an oversized cardi and boots. The material is super soft, with great stretch recovery and the colour of the black is deep. As for the fit, the dress fits very well, I got a medium, (I am 5'11 and a US8, with curves). To get an idea how the dress fits, the sleeves are snug and tight (and 3/4 length); the top part is just right, not too tight but not loose; and the bottom is tight, as in 'suck-in-all-lumps-so-you-look-smoking-hot'. The dress is rather short on me because I am so tall. Lets just say I will be making sure its pulled down as far as it can go so I wont be showing my underwear! And its hard to pull down the back because of the ruche effect. Remember this dress is backless. I bought the black and am happy not to wear a bra with it. The backless part is beautiful because it is cut just right and accents my curves. In love with this!!!

Just the dress I have been searching for
This dress is amazing and as the title suggest is just what I have been searching for. I needed a dress that is versatile, one that I can dress up for cocktails with friends or that I can wear casually with a big wintry cardi and boots. The material is like all Rachel Pally dresses, jersey with a bit of give and great fabric recovery. I bought the black and the colour is deep and beautiful. For the fit - I am a size 8 US and the dress is the perfect fit. A few things to consider. You need this dress tight so go for your usual size. I am generally always a medium and this is perfect for me. If you are in between sizes go smaller. For specifics - the arms are more 3/4 than full length and are very tight and fitting (which is the look of this dress). The top bodice is tight but not overly. The bottom is very tight but its the 'suck-in-all-the-lumps-and-make-you-look-hot' sort of tight. Yes the dress is backless but I dont mind not wearing a bra, with black you can get away with it.

Love this dress
I bought this dress in the black and it is stunning. I am tall, around 5'11 and this dress is long which is perfect for me. Due to the non-hemmed nature of the bottom of this dress, you can cut the dress to the length suitable for you if needed, or get it hemmed. For other dimensions, I am an 8US. The medium fits me perfectly but due to the nature of the dress i could have gone smaller. The feel of the dress is amazing. It is so luxurious and soft yet amazingly comfortable. I wear the dress casually, or dress it up for dinner or wear it out on weekends at BBQs and it is perfect for each occasion. A perfect piece if you are looking for a truly versatile maxi dress. And although it says dry clean only I wash it inside out on a silk setting inside out (to avoid pilling) and then lay it flat to dry and it is fine. Dont go crazy washing it but I havent had any issues so far.
