woah!
I'm 150% agreed with the previous reviewer - the dress is fantastic but the cut is ridiculously small!! I am a true 4 (36C/D, 5'7, 27 in jeans) but there was absolutely no way I could make the 4 work. It's way too tight in the shoulder, the upper arm and the bust areas. So, I had to purchase...size 12!! It's the only size that sit well on me. Actually, it looks really good. Length wise and fit wise - perfect. Very elegant and classic. I am going to alter the sleeves since their length in the 12 is very odd (for my height). I definitely never expected to pull a 12 off...

Not meant to be together
Pros: fantastic leather, great price and the belt is easily adjustable for a smaller waist. Cons: the length of the garment is kind off odd and the bottom part of the coat does not have any buttons. Hence, it's hard to keep it from "flying free". On a windy/chilly day it definitely defeats the purpose of having a long coat. The coat is also very light (thin leather) which is both good and bad. Good as wearing it doesn't weigh you down. Bad - because it gets tons of wrinkles and doesn't hold the shape so well. If you are a tall person (I am about 5'7) and are ok with the cons mentioned above then this coat may work for you. I am usually a 4 so i went with "small".

Minnie Mouse goes goth
I really like the quality of the shoes. Despite its funky design, they are actually comfortable. However, they are a tad too odd for me. I am all about being fashion forward but these shoes make me feel like a cartoon character. Usually it's not a bad idea to size up in the pumps -not the case for these. They fit true to size.

wanted to like
I am usually a solid 4. Ordered a bunch of tweed pants by different designers. All but one pair fit. The pants that were at least one size off are these. The color was not that great either so I decided not to order a 6. Not impressed.

relaxed and baggy
They are pretty casual and not too dressy but I like that about them. Great color, too. I can still wear them to work and go hang out with friends after work. Size wise - got my usual 4, fits well. The fabric may be a problem since it has linen (hard to keep them wrinkle free). But all in all, it's a great pair of warm pants.

not perfect but pretty nice
I like that they are not too scratchy. The feel good and the look pretty good (ordered my usual 4). But they don't hold the shape so well. I wore them to work - they already look bigger. The other drawback is that it's a bit difficult to keep them clean - the pants seem to be the magnet for lint, hair, etc. Nice color though.

hmmm
I am a true 4 and the "Small" I got felt pretty big. They are very stretchy and kind of short. I like my bell bottom pants to be long in order to wear them with platforms for more flattering look. Sent them back,

not a keeper
I am a true 4 (almost 5'7) and went with 36 - fit well. However, they are pretty scratchy, heavy and long. Returned.

it's a no
I am the third person reviewing this item and the third one to have a different opinion. I actually loved the color but hated the cut. I am not keeping it even for 50% off. I am around 5'7, size 4/27. Maybe if I went with "M" it would have been a different story but it's hard to tell for sure since the upper part of the jumpsuit in "S" fits me very well. The fabric is not your typical silky material. I also found the jumpsuit to be somewhat sheer. But the real deal breaker was the pants part of the garment. I think it's beyond unflattering. It visually shortnes the legs and elongates the torso. Too bad...gunmetal is my favourite color and it compliments my complexion. I wish the jumpsuit would, too.

my new favourite blouse
This is actually a very pretty blouse! I am uber happy with the purchase. it's very boho-chic but could be styled for the business attire. The color is more subtle than pictured but I still like it a lot. I think it makes it more feminine. I am a 4 so I went with "S" - fits well!
