Stretches out
This dress is cute, for about a minute, until it starts stretching out. The fabric does not bounce back or retain its shape. After wearing it for 5 minutes with the tags on, it was completely stretched out in the hip-through-hem area. It did not look good. It is also itchy. If the fabric was better quality this would be a keeper, but it's not worth the price.

not very substantive
I ordered this in a small and a medium. I was disappointed with the material in both. It is thin. Though it is double-sided/lined, there is major THO. There is no option of removable padding, so you can't add more coverage. Another problem is that the neck strap, while beautifully braided, is not adjustable, so you can't tie it tighter to improve the fit. The neck strap left too much room, so the top was too loose on me. The color is beautiful though.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Looks great
Love this necklace. The color gold is just right (not too yellow or cheap looking). It has a nice weight to it. The necklace is a perfect way to dress up work outfits without being too flashy.

Material feels cheap
These are very light and cheap feeling. They feel like they are from forever 21 and cost $.4.95. Not worth $60.

Brighter than pictured
The coral color is much brighter than pictured. It is truly a neon highlighter color and not a more muted corally color. I still love it, so I will keep it.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Shorter and wider than pictured
I was disappointed with this sweater. The fit is shorter and wider than pictured. Rather than the somewhat narrow "deconstructed" look on the model with a hip-length hemline, this sweater fit me much boxier. The armpits are almost a dolman sleeve placement, which makes the sides of the sweater pull up as you move around. The sweater is just boxier and wider than pictured. Not in love.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Snags easily
The gold details on the end of the belt snag the fabric constantly. Just trying the dress on, I got three snags in the dresses from the screws on the gold embellishments. I don't know if this was just a defect in the dress I received or if it's a style-wide problem. Disappointing. Otherwise the dress is adorable. Great color and fit.

narrow calf
I love the leather and hardware on these boots. However, I found the calf to be very narrow. I could only zip the boot about 3/4 of the way up. I have another pair of Tory Burch boots in the same size (the Jess Platform Boot) that fits me fine. I don't think I have particularlly large calves, but I seem to have this problem with flat Tory Burch boots. I also ordered the very similar Nadie riding boot from nordstorm during the semi-annual sale and had the same problem. I was hoping the Calista would fit differently but it does not. I also found the ankle to be very stiff/tight/painful on both the Nadine and Calista. I guess Tory Burch riding boots are just not for me. I will have to stick with Frye.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

See-through
I loved the color of this dress. The fit was as expected (tighter top, looser skirt). I was very excited to wear this dress, until I got into bright light and saw that the unlined skirt was very flimsy and see through. My (pale pastel) undies were totally visibile through the skirt.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

REALLY short
I am not shy about a short dress, but this dress is REALLY short on the higher side of the asymmetrical hem. I am 5'5" (on a good day), and it hit me almost at the hip/thigh curve. Otherwise the dress was great. The fabric was nice (not too thin, which for me is the kiss of death on a bodycon dress). If the hem had been a couple of inches longer I would have kept it.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected
