Cheap and Chic
The pricing is reasonable, the quality is acceptable and the styling is chic. Sizing is true to size. Things to note: - Top is quite short, so, expect it to look "crop"ish if you wear it with low-waisted bottoms. Would suit mid-high waisted bottoms best. - 4 stars because there are bits of strings and things hanging off it and it is slightly itchy but not to the point of it being uncomfortable. You get what you pay for. All of the sequins on my top were intact.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Perfect statement piece
My first purchase from Nocturne and it won't be my last! The necklace feels well assembled and there's a fabric backing underneath the stones so that the metal claws don't catch onto your clothes.

Very boxy fit
I got the 0 as my measurements (not height) are similar to the model's, and I'm normally a 0-2, xs, 25/26 jean. The coat is oversized but it doesn't look good on anyone that's 5'5" or less, like me. It ends up looking boxy and the slouchy shoulders actually add to your shoulders, making for an odd fit. I suppose this would suit a taller person with small shoulders. The fabric wasn't anything special and out of the box, there were bits of fluff coming off the coat.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Really high slits
I am normally a size 25/26, XS and between a 0-4. Dress is true to size. I bought this in XS and found that the slits along the skirt are pretty high and make this dress look less classy than it should. When you sit down, it is even more apparent. Consider sizing up if you want it more flow-y like on the model.

Nothing special
I wanted to really love this dress but it's fairly unremarkable in person. The other version on the DVF site with the hip pockets is a bit more "high fashion" but this just looks like the regular Julian Two dress with leather patches. Now, the leather patches on the sleeve - they just look a bit bizarre, like wings on 80s high top sneakers. And they were poorly sewed on. The crepe that the dress is made out of is nowhere near as luxe as the regular silk jersey that DVF is renowned for. it's just heavy and a bit rough to the touch. It's going back.

Comfortable and stylish
I have these in the same linen mix material in red and I love them. They're not too short or tight around the thighs and can be dressed up or down. I'm a 25/26 size 2 and got the 2 but I do find them a little loose around the waist. However, I don't mind these being on the looser side as they definitely would not look good tight.

High Waist
This is a high waisted skirt which probably isn't evident on the model. The waist was quite small, too. I ordered my regular size 2 and it did not feel comfortable. I could do it up, but it felt too tight for work. I'd suggest ordering a size up.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Nothing exciting
Dress doesn't look as pictured on the model. I ordered a size 2 and found that the fit was odd. Waist was fine but hips were baggy and the bust area sat very strangely and also baggy. The pleather is quite stiff and I think this contributes to the way it sits loose/crumply in certain parts. It feels uncomfortable on. There is a jersey tube dress that is to be worn underneath. It has rubber-backed elastic to hold it up which doesn't dig, but doesn't feel comfy. Add to that the crunchy/plasticy feel of the pleather dress. The only saving grace is that it's only $68, hence a 2 star rating. It's going back.

Nothing spectacular
The material feels like a cheap silk and the dress is quite short. I'm a size 0-2 and got the S - it was too short and too boxy. The colour is only flattering to those that are tanned.

Super soft, cute print
The fraying is just right and the print is cool; not tacky camo. I am almost always a size 26 in all brands of jeans but I had to send these back and order a 25 as the 26 barely clung onto my hips. The material is very soft and stretchy and if you want them to fit like on the model, I'd suggest sizing down.
