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.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

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.

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.

Warm and soft
I wore this for the first time in 20F weather as a layering piece and it was perfect. The little bit of cashmere mixed with cotton is all natural fabric and lets your skin breathe but stay warm at the same time. I gave this only 4 stars because it is more expensive than most other long sleeved tops and also because the cuff part is not hemmed, so expect fraying after multiple wears. As with other reviewers, I sized up. I'm a size 2 but I like my knits in size S. I bought this in an M and think it is perfect.

Perfect autumn knit
Bought this in XS in moose and would say this is true to size. It even accommodated my broad shoulders. In the picture, the material looks quite rough but in person, it is soft, but obviously not cashmere soft. The quality is superb and it looks luxe. Very impressed.

Cheap looking
Didn't feel or look solid and materials looked plastic-y. Not worth $55. Returned.

Narrow feet size down
Many reviews say to size down at least 1/2 to a full size. I'm normally a US7.5/EUR38 and ordered a US6.5. I have normal width feet and I do not think these are as large as people make them out to be. I would say people with narrow feet should size down 1/2 a size but for normal width feet, get your regular size. I don't think even a US7 would be long enough based on how my toes were hitting the front of the shoe of the 6.5. I'm fairly certain a US7.5 would be just right. Great quality for the price.
