Jeggings+
I'm loving the coated thing as a way to get a leather look without the price. These fit just like other 901's, although the material is stiffer and doesn't stretch as much. As seems to be the case with this model, the 30" inseam is a bit skimpy for taller people (I'm 5'8"). They aren't as shiny as in the photo, but the very dark blue is nice. I was a bit annoyed to realize these have to be drycleaned to avoid ruining the finish. I'm glad I checked the label before throwing them in the machine!! Otherwise, these are getting lots of rotation to dress up a jeans look. Might have to get some other colours....

Love this casual shirt
This is my first try with an Alexander Wang item. Based on other reviews I had read, and other photos available online, I decided to size down. I'm normally a 6 or S/M in tops, fairly slim with long arms, although I'm not exactly flat-chested and I have muscular arms. I ordered a S and I'm glad I did. I'm a bit short-waisted and the smaller size is perfect. It's not too long, and it's not too tight or too loose. The arms are long by design, so some more petite frames might find them too long. I haven't washed it yet, so I'm hoping that doesn't change the fit. Love the design - the vertical/horizontal stripes are very flattering. It's a great twist on a casual weekend shirt. Comfortable and easy to wear but looks more stylish than a regular long-sleeved T-shirt. As can be seen from the photos, it is sheer, so I wear a nude camisole underneath.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Hot!
Decided to take the plunge and try the red pant trend this fall. Do not regret it and these are a great way to do it. I always have good luck with Nanette pants and these are no exception. Although unlined, the material, which is slightly textured (see the zoom), is a good thickness and has the right amount of stretch. As always, there are little details that make them more interesting than other pants. For example, the seam along the back. I can wear a 6 in Nanette (although I often wear an 8 in other brands) and found these to be true to size. I am slightly curvier than the model so they look slightly more fitted, especially around the bum, but still work appropriate. The cut makes my legs look long (in a hot way!); the cut is fairly straight from the hip (below the bum) but then flares out just the right amount at the bottom. I'm 5' 8" so the length is perfect for me in heels.

Had to have it!
When I saw this in the spring, I had to have it! When I received it, I was NOT disappointed. Love the fit and it's very comfortable. Totally on trend and love the way Joie interpreted it with slightly puffed shoulders and ruching on the arms. I've worn it quite a lot over the summer and will find ways to wear it into fall...will look great with grey pants, non?

Pretty, but not good for small heads
I bought this to jazz up my sloppy weekend hair. It's pretty, and I like the fact that it has two separate strands that you can place together or apart, depending on the look you want. However, as with most headbands, I find it slightly too large for my head (I have a small head). It is pretty expensive for a headband, but I haven't had any problems with the stones yet (still early on).

Colour nicer in person
This casual shirt has great features. The colour is nicer in person - the background is more grey than white, and it's got a nice depth to it. The buttons on the shoulder add some interesting detail. The shirt is VERY long though (I'm short-waisted, which sort of makes it feel even longer). Good for leggings and skinny jeans, but not a regular T-shirt length. The V-neck is just the right length. Overall, a nice casual shirt!

Funky
Normally I'm safe with size M but can often wear a size S. I followed other reviewers and sized down to a size S, which is perfect (I hope it doesn't shrink!). I'm fairly tall and my arms are fairly long and slim, although pretty muscular, and I don't find the arms at all too tight. I'm also short-waisted so that was another good reason to size down, since the sweater is cropped; I wanted it to fall at the right point. The knit is very soft and I think the thumbholes are a funky twist. I'm looking forward to wearing it to work this fall over a white collared shirt.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Lovely and simple
Snapped this up on sale, and don't regret it. The print is lovely, the fabric has the right amount of thickness, and the cut is nice and flowy. It's very comfortable. The length (it is a "mini") and off-the-shoulder look definitely make it more of a going-out dress than a regular day-time dress. In U.S. designer sizes I'm typically a M or an 8 in the bottom, and the 8 is perfect on me. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have a zipper, so it's a bit tricky to pull on.

Fabulous work dress with a twist
Love Nanette for work clothes with a twist. Have gotten several compliments each time I've worn this crisp shirt dress to work. I'm 5'8" and the length is fine (might be just slightly too short for some more conservative environments). I normally wear a 6 in NL and this 6 is perfect. I could probably have gotten away with a 4 (she seems to be making her sizes more roomy) but that would have been fairly tight in the ribs and chest. The fabric is just the right weight for summer and the cut is unique and flattering. I don't find it to be poufy; love the pockets in the skirt for key pass etc. Have worn it with wedge heels and tan booties. Could go with a flat too if you want to make it more casual for the weekend. Love it.

Flattering cut
As another reviewer said, the way the panels at the waist are cut is very flattering. Tank is nice and light, not too sheer. I've worn the blue stripe with jean shorts and liked how they went together. My only complaint is that the racer back is so slim, it's hard to find a bra that fits under it without showing, so a layering tank is needed. Having to add another layer detracts from the lightness of the tank itself.
