it's okay
first time wearing vegan leather, and these pants were okay. i'm usually a size 2 in bottoms, but went with the size 4 since i think free people runs a little small. probably should've went with a 2, as the 4 made me look...frumpy? not pulled together? they were just okay on me so i returned them.

favorite leather-like pants
tried on several pairs of leather-looking jeans, including j. brand's vera, hudson's krista, free people's vegan leather, and ag's leatherette. the hudson's were the easiest to get on (i have an athletic lower body so skinny jeans are usually a pain for me) and the j. brand vera are really unique, but the front slit looks kinda weird when you're wearing flats or sandals (probably would only look good in heels). the ag's are my favorite by far, and although tight, they looked the best. they are also heavier/thicker material than the j.brand and hudson's. i tried on 27 and 28 (am usually a 26) and even though the 27's were hard to get on (literally squeezing in them), the 27 looked on better than the 28, like everything was pulled together kinda like shapewear.

wanted to love
I wanted to love this blouse and it looks so cute on the model, but when I pulled it out of packaging, it looked really flat. Probably because it's been stuck in plastic for a while, but the tie laid really flat and did not look natural on the blouse. I also thought the neck tie would fully loop back to the knot at the top, but it's attached via a string to the blouse underneath (seems a little tacky to me). did not love the blouse, so returned it.

boxy
Wish the shirt fit as shown on the model. it's a LOT wider than it looks, almost too boxy. I don't mind a looser/boyfriend fit, but even with the XS there was enough material to make two of these shirts from one. I like the overall concept, but it just didn't work out when I tried it on at home.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

my retro sunglasses
i've been looking for a pair of retro sunglasses since it came back in style and this has been my favorite pair so far. i have a small face, and the sides fit snugly on my ears, no slippage down my nose. i like the shape of the frames too, they're not too squarish like a true retro frame, but more like a subtle modern retro. i'm not a fan of the stars cuz they're not really my style, but they're hardly noticeable, and i can't see them :P.

stiff material
i've seen this material in chiffon, which is much softer and flows better than cotton. there is no shape to this dress whatsoever, and almost makes me looks pregnant. I ordered the XS (5'8" 125lbs) but it looked like a medium. For this cut, they should have used a softer material so it didn't hang so stiffly away from your body .

sexy tank
material is super soft, and i like the long length. the top is cut a little low for my body so i might get the straps altered.

cute top
i actually bought this item at the Club Monaco store, and at first was hesitant about the colors because in person, the colors look a little brighter than shown in the picture. still looked really cute on, and is versatile for work and weekends. for reference: i'm 5'8", 125 lbs, and got an XS. The small was a little too baggy while the XS had the loose fit w/o being oversized.

it's nice
I usually wear this bracelet with my oversized gold MK watch, and they go well together. Looks good on its own, but since I don't have many bracelets yet, I can't get the stacked look. Overall it's a nice item.

not for me
Cute skirt, wanted to wear this for spring, but the way it fell around my hips made the skirt flare out more than i wanted (it was more a-line than on the model). I think my athletic body type (rounder bum and hips) made the skirt flare out, and i didn't like the way it looked--almost too girly and too girlish. Returned because I wasn't in love with it.
