A Beautiful Blouse
Though another website offered this blouse at a lower sale price-point, I purchased the blouse from shopbop because of the quick shipping and tax free shopping. With that said, I'm very pleased with my purchase. This is actually my second piece ever from Nanette (last season, I purchased one of her winter coats) and I must admit, Nanette is the master of detail. Everything piece on this blouse has been exquisitely designed making it well-worth the price point. I'm actually eying another a jacket from her current collection to wear this coming fall.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

A Sexy Spring/Summer Sandal
Not only are these shoes stunning in person (and I do mean breathtakingly beautiful) but they are well-made! The quality is evident -- you really can't beat Italian craftsmanship. For me, the shoes were true to size. I'm typically a 40 or US size 9. And as for the comfort, they are surprisingly quite comfortable, even after hours of dancing and walking around. I highly recommend this shoe, I can't imagine going into spring/summer 2011 without them!

Quite possibly the "perfect print"
DVF has done it again. I don't think any other contemporary designer does print/pattern better than DVF. I really don't. The melding of an exaggerated basket-weave print and bold vertical lines are tantamount to brilliance. I dare you to find someone that this blouse won't flatter. I mean, the blouse is just everything. I've had it bookmarked for nearly 2 months but just couldn't wait for it to go on sale. And I have no regrets. My only complaint is the sizing of the blouse, it runs a full size small. I'm a 34A, 5'4, 130lbs and typically a size 4/small top. However, I bought a size 6 in this blouse. I think if I had taken a size 4, the cut of sleeves (i.e. armpit area) would have been uncomfortable (hence the 4 out of 5 stars). So if you're on the fence about this top, let me cast every final doubt aside: just buy it.

Quite Sheer
The nude color sold me on this dress. I was worried about how sheer it would be because the black version is basically transparent. I reasoned that since I have dark brown skin, that the nude wouldn't reveal very much on me. False. I did have on nude underwear at the time so I'm going to try the dress next while wearing black underwear. In hindsight, I probably should have ordered the black because of my skin color but I'm going to try to make the nude work for me. The only fit criticism that I have about the dress is that its cut slimmer through the arms so if you have more of an athletic build, I'd suggest going a size up.

Returned :(
I bought the brown version of this hat but had to return it for 2 reasons: 1) it's real fur and that's a major no-no in my book and 2) the overall quality of the hat is below average. The quilted exterior feels, well to be frank, cheap and the fur lining is rather thin. Also, if you have straight hair, I'm not sure how well the hat will stay on your head because it would constantly slip off of mine. Irrespective of my fur issue, I just don't think this hat meets the price tag.

Cute but would have preferred just sheer
I ordered these in tandem with the opaque Spanx, thinking that I needed to "spice things up" a bit. I was also hoping for that amazing, super-slimming effect that I am always hearing about with these tights. Sadly, for me, my legs looked pretty much same. And though I enjoyed the back seam, I would have preferred all the way sexy with a Cuban heel or no sexy at all (just sheer). I'm sure I will find some use for them. And the quality matches the price.

I'm really quite underwhelmed
Honestly, I was expecting to be blown away by these so-called "ultra amazing" tights. I'm really not. I kind of blame myself though because I should have known better than to trust a size 0 fit model wearing Spanx! However, you are getting your money's worth (I think) in terms of the quality of the tight. I've purchased from Danskin, Hue, etc... and (so far) the quality just doesn't compare. The sheen to the tights, the texture to the material -- I'm pleased in those regards. I have yet to test them out properly but when I do, I shall return and comment on the comfort after several hours of wear.

This coat is EVERYTHING
I recently received this coat directly from Nanette Lepore in midnight (navy) and I can honestly say that this coat is EVERYTHING. I'm 5'4, 135lbs with an athletic build and the style couldn't be more flattering. I was worried about the size because I have broad shoulders and spoke with a sales rep for Nanette who recommended that I take the next size up. Thank goodness I did because instead of ordering the 4 like I originally planned on doing, I ordered the 6 and it fits comfortably well. I'm sure shopbop's color option is lovely as well but I am completely taken with the midnight. I've already tried on several winter options that I can't wait to frolic around in this winter!

The Engineer Boot is a Classic Must-Have
These boots are absolutely fantastic! I've been meaning to do a post comparing these to their uber-trendy contemporary: the Jeffrey Campbell Brits. The JCs don't stand a chance. The quality is unparalleled, not to mention the comfort and style. With almost no breaking in time, these Engineer have quickly become my favorite fall/winter boot. I've worked them with dresses as well as with denim shorts and skinny jeans. They pretty much work with all looks and are a marvelous alternative to standard casual footwear. These are definitely worth the investment! The Queen of Hearts

Beautiful but delicate
I absolutely love this top -- the print is much prettier in person. However, this will be a "taking it easy" blouse only. The material is quite thin and the stitching so fine that I feel like if I were to have a crazy night on the town, the blouse would not last. If you can accept this as a date, casual day/evening or shopping blouse, then purchase it.
