Baggy quickly
These are pretty average jeans. The wash and cut are classic, although there is probably too much whiskering to make these your go-to night out on the town dark jeans. (It is definitely a casual wash.) My biggest issue with these jeans is that they aren't very fitted, and they became even baggier very fast. I have wide hips but slim thighs, and these jeans began comfortably loose, but ended up being unattractively baggy on my butt and thighs by the end of my first wear. (I am 5'7", 110lbs, and usually wear a size 27 in low-rise jeans.)
Sizing: Larger than Expected

V too deep
I got this sweater in navy, size small. It is a beautiful, true blue navy, and the fabric is high quality and very soft. Unfortunately the cowl draped so deeply that my bra was exposed (and not in a sexy way, either)! After fiddling around with it, I was able to drape it just right, but when I walked back to the closet the shirt shifted around and my bra was exposed again. Also, although you can't tell in some of the pictures online, this is definitely a tunic (practically dress-length.) If the XS was still available I would definitely buy it, but am returning the small. (Note: I am 5'7", 110lbs, and a 32DD.) The quality of the fabric and the beautiful draping makes this a classy shirt you could wear out or to the office---but I recommend sizing down to do so.

Shelf bra issue
My main problem with this dress is that there is an extra panel of fabric---something akin to a shelf bra, but without the support---built into the top of the dress. On someone like me (32DD) the "shelf" hit me across the bust, making a line right in the middle that I could not get rid of no matter how I adjusted it. NOT a flattering look, to say the least. That being said, the dress was soft and comfortable (although definitely VERY figure-hugging), so women with smaller busts (or who can go bra-less) would probably be quite pleased with this otherwise-cute dress.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Not enough stretch
I have wide hips but skinny thighs, and unfortunately these pants had a problem I encounter quite frequently: they fit okay across the hips, but were way too baggy on my legs. I have found that pants with a little more stretch tend to do the trick when I'm looking for form-fitting styles.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Surprisingly versatile
I bought this dress in red, and it is a very flattering color---even against my ultra-fair skin. However, I was somewhat surprised by the fabric itself---it somehow makes the dress seem a little more casual than one would expect. (It sort of looks like cotton t-shirt material.) On the plus side, I think that means you might be able to dress it down (the black version especially, maybe with a cardigan and flat boots?), and it is very soft and comfortable. Overall, I would say this is a very good dress, especially for the price!
