Shoulders are wack
The shoulders on this dress are really awkward. It is as if they are cut for someone with narrower shoulders than ribs. It is so bizarre it's hard to describe. I'm not sure how they got the shoulders to fit normally on the model.

good fit but short inseam
Personally, I wish these were longer. Other than that, they fit great. The rise is perfect. I do wish they looked more like leather.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Flares out at bottom
This top would be really cute if it actually fit. Unfortunately it flares out at ton at the bottom. I ordered a size 0. The top is over 29 inches around at the bottom.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

cute but cut too straight
I normally wear a 0. I ordered these in a size 2. They were way too big in the waist, so they fell down and looked a bit baggy, but were still fitted through the hips. Then I tried belting them, but there was too much extra fabric in the waist. Meanwhile, they fit through the hips no matter how high or low I tried wearing them, so I wouldn't have been able to go any smaller. I've had this same experience with other A.L.C. shorts, so I guess this brand just cut's clothes for straighter body types. These also look very straight if you lay them flat. I personally find this maddening, especially since the print is awesome, and I really wanted them to work out. I am around 5'8", 110, but apparently I'm way too curvy for these shorts. WTF mate?

HUGE
I got this in a size XS to go with some high waisted shorts. Untucked, this shirt completely covers the shorts. I'm 5'8", and the shorts have a 2.5" inseam. That's just a little ridiculous if you ask me.

Disappointed
This skirt looked really frumpy on me. I ordered it in 0, and I suppose it fit true to size but the waist was a bit too big.. However, I frequently have this problem. Perhaps, if the waist had fit tighter, it would have looked cuter. Still, to me, both the cut and fabric of this skirt looked cheap. In my opinion, this skirt lacks structure, and the pleating was unflattering, the way it tapers off towards the hips. The eyelet is really as boring as it gets, and the lining is insufficiently opaque so that tucked in tops show through. The leather waistband is poor quality, but I suppose that could be expected. Still, though, I suppose it looked about the same on me as it does on the model after I clipped some extra fabric in the back, but I guess I was hoping it would look better.

Large Instep
I normally wear a 9-9 1/2. I wear a 9 1/2 in Nike, most Jimmy Choos, Giuseppe Zanotti pumps, etc. However, I wear a 9 in Loeffler Randall and Giuseppe Zanotti boots. I tried these in both sizes, and went with the 9. However, even the 9 is so large in the instep that I have to stuff an extra pair of socks in them to keep my heel from slipping (I have not found any pads to fix this problem). However, I suppose I generally have this problem with American shoes. However, most higher end designer boots fit my foot just fine. These do not, so in that respect I was disappointed. Nevertheless, they are cute and the camel is a great neutral color, and makes your legs look much longer than in black or brown booties.. I wear them with everything from dresses to shorts. The only drawback is they are a bit warm for summer weather. I really wish they were lined in something besides leather. If you are between sizes I would definitely recommend going down a size.

narrow thru hips
This dress is cute but the cut is sort of awkward. I wear a 0-2 normally, and usually a 0 in Alice and Olivia, but the XS in this dress was way too tight through the hips.

super awkward fit
Though overall, I'd say these fit true to size, the fit is really awkward. They looked really baggy in front, loose at the waist, and tighter than expected through the hips when viewed from the back They were not as high-waisted as I had hoped based on the picture and 10.5" rise, and they just looked extremely unflattering. They might look good on someone with narrow hips and a flat butt. I don't really know. I'm 5'8", around 112, a size 0-2, but sort of curvy, and these looked really awful on me. They would have looked much better if they had a higher rise, a smaller waist, more fabric through the hips in the back, and a shorter inseam. However, if you can pull off this style, the color is really pretty.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

cute but unflattering color
I really wanted to like these shorts, but the color was really unflattering on me. It seemed paler in real life than in the photo. I'm half-Italian and have pale olive skin. Usually I don't worry so much about colors that are not up near my face, but these made me look like a corpse. Maybe I'm just too pale, who knows. Other than that, the style was cute and the fit as expected, and the same as Tibi shorts of this style usually fit. If you can pull of the color, though, I still recommend these. The animal print is cute and tasteful (I am really picky about animal prints and stay away from tradition leopard print). Personally, I like how they are printed but still really easy to mix and match. The fabric also makes them really practical and easy to dress up or down.
