Exceeded my Expectations
I was pleasantly surprised to see that on me, this dress basically looks exactly like it does on the model (as if that happens a lot). I'm a size 6/8 and the M is perfect. It is a mini-dress length so if you're taller like me (I'm 5'8"), the length will also be more like it looks on the model. The beading, fit and flow of this dress is fabulous. There is something about the way the beading is heavier and more clustered at the top but then trails off near the bottom that seems to be particularly flattering. I already feel fabulous in it and can't wait to wear it to a special event in July.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cool and crisp
Like that this is cotton, and has long sleeves that can be rolled down for coverage and up for less. However, the elasticized waist is a drop waist and might not sit right on some body types. It isn't meant to sit at your waist, but doesn't quite go over your bum either. Might not be a home run for everyone.

Great basic layer
This is perfect for under sweaters, etc., but beware of a couple of things. It is quite tight (but I wouldn't size up), and it's quite sheer (I bought the white), so it really is not great on its own and don't buy it if that's how you want to wear it. It's quite long, which I also liked, and was easy to "ruche" around the tummy in a strategic way. Because it's tight, it doesn't move once you adjust it. I may order more in other colours.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Comfy and Soft
I really like this. The cut is flattering, and the hood is a great option to have when you've just had enough sun for the day. The jersey is soft and comfy. The length was good on me (I'm 5'8", but short-waisted), covering just enough.

Funky
Wearing these for the first time today. Appear to be good quality, leather soles and interior, comfortable with no pinching. The metal plate is a neat touch. They're very high, although part of that height is the platform. True to size, when you follow my rule, which is that a 39 is a U.S. 8.5. My size was out, so I ordered a half size up, and they are slightly too big, as I would have expected. Overall, I'm very glad I bought these and I think I'll get a lot of use out of them for the rest of the winter. They'll be great with long trousers, and my cropped pants, even certain types of skirts. So I think they're quite versatile. The antelope colour is, btw, a kind of light brown, and not camel.

Work appropriate slim pant
Fit like other NL pants (which I wear one size smaller than most brands). Great slim cut (without being totally curve hugging), good light wool fabric. Matches the NL suit I bought elsewhere this fall, so now I have two pant options, which is great. Most definitely a great deal at this sale price.

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.

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?
