Versatile
Purchased this in Black in an XS and White in a S. White was too sheer for me, but loved the black. I could probably get by with the XS, but will return for a S for a bit more "give". Great piece for a nice derriere and legs (yet hides my little "panchita" tummy in front), and can also be worn with tights and boots as a base layer for mild winter climates (I'm in Houston). For those wondering sizing, I wear a 29 in J.Brand jeans, am 5'2" and about 115 pounds.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Comfy
I have another pair of light khaki type trousers from J.Crew, but they are sloppy big. These manage to keep the "oversized" style while flattering my lower half as well. I own many pair of the 811 mid rise skinny jeans from J.Brand, and size up to a 29 on those. I recommend staying true to your size on these. The 29 was much too large, but the 28 still had a generous cut without being too "slouchy"! I have a feeling these will stretch...I have a handy dryer standing by :)
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

So wearable
I will get alot of use out of this. Would not have paid full price, but a good value on sale. The fabric is "sleep in" soft, and the fit is loose and relaxed. I also like the length on me...I'm very petite, and this was not as long as many basic tees I've tried on. I'll wear under suit jackets for work, and with jeans for play. This tee is also a great foil for neck pieces!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Yes, they run large
The last few pairs of J Brand pants I've ordered have been a 29, so I sized down on these and ordered a 28. They are pretty big...just ordered a 27 to compare.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

So soft!
First time ordering this brand. Tee is very soft and comfortable! I'll be wearing this to run around town with my denim cut offs and sandals!

Not for me
It was difficult to judge from the photo, but I expected the pattern on this dress to actually be a "reverse applique" - cut out with fabric showing underneath. In fact, the pattern is "printed" on the dress, and it just didn't have the texture I expected. Fit OK on top, but too tight around the hips. I ordered a 2, and I'm about 5'2" and 115 lbs. I normally take between a 2-4 in dresses.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Show off your shoulders
I fell in love with this top after seeing it on Jennifer Aniston (doesn't she look good in everything) on a recent late-night talk show. I am so pleased with this purchase. I am very tiny up top, and this really complements my narrow shoulders. I took it in a small, and wouldn't have wanted to size down. Wearing it on date night tonight with hubby with my new See by Chloe colorblock platforms, skinny jeans and Adia Kibur black and gold multi-chain necklace. Hope he approves :)

Great color
Just what I needed to go with my simple Rose Gold hoops. Piece is actually a bit "warmer" than photo...has more copper in in. Am styling this with the Helmut Lang halter top in graphite (see my review).

Too shiny!
Pretty necklace, but just a bit too much "sparkle" for me. Returning.

Need no other
The PERFECT pant for me. I have these in three colors, and would buy them all if I could. I purchased them in a 29, since they run a little small (I'm 5'2" and 115 lbs). The higher rise does a nice job containing any runaway "spillage" without feeling like I'm wearing a corset (thank you lycra)! They do stretch a bit, so will loosen up with wear. If you want to preserve the "second skin" look, perhaps order your normal size. Best pants ever!
