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.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

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.

Super thin
This top basically looks as is on the model, but it should be noted that the material is very stretchy and very thin, so you basically need to be super svelte or just never bend over at the waist, else lumps show. Also, because the material is so thin, you can see a faint outline of pasties if you choose to wear them over your boobs.

Cheap but just ok...
You can't beat the price and the pop of colour (I ordered the orange). The jersey is very thick which is great for hiding any lumps/bumps but the hip pockets sit awkwardly, adding an unflattering bulk to the hip area. Returning.

Adds bulk
This dress fit true to size and I bought it thinking I could wear it to work as a floaty white shift dress. Unfortunately it is super short and I'm not tall (5'5"). Also, the way the embroidery sits on the front just adds bulk in a non-flattering way as the dress billows due to it having two layers. Going back.

Cut small
I tried this dress in the white ("Cloud") which was made of a crepe material in my usual size 2 at a store. It fit perfectly. I went ahead and ordered this yellow one in a 2. When I took this dress out of the package, I noticed that the material was a much heavier twill than the Jackie O. It was also sadly too small in the waist. I had assumed that it would be cut the same as the Alexander in crepe material but it is definitely smaller. Order a size up if you decide to get this.

Awkward fit
I found the body of the top fit true to size - bought XS, am a size 2 - but the shoulders and arms felt a little tight. I do have broad shoulders, so I understand that, but I don't have thick arms, so was surprised that the sleeves were cut on the small side. Not overly uncomfortable or noticeable, but not worth USD200 for me.

Solid statement piece
So far, impressed with the designs of the Low Luv x range. It feels solid and the quality is worth the price. I agree with a previous reviewer though that the pendant tends to twist around, so sometimes it does face the other way. However, this doesn't bother me because the stone is beautiful.
