Not as sleek in person
Looks much sleeker/ "citified" in the pic. Can't be a body-type thing as my measurements match the model's. In person - it feels a bit too sweat-pants-y (Britney circa her 'Juicy' years).
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Conservative or sexy?
It feels as though the dress can't make up its mind... On me, the neckline fits more like a short "mock" neck rather than a crew, lending it a bit of a stuffy air...otherwise the shadow stripes and the bodycon fit are eye-catching. Perhaps the neckline would fall lower if I sized up from XS; but then the waist wouldn't be fitted...

Too cropped...
Love the leather arm patches. It's too bad that the length is short, which isn't much help to the wet-suit look/feel.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

I'm sizing up
Having a 24" waist, I wasn't concerned about fitting into the XS - maybe I should have been! I expected this to fall down a bit more and to look less "micro", more "pencil". Sadly, I'll be sizing up to the S. The skirt is cute otherwise.

Scratchy...
Cute cut-out design makes this edgy. ;) But, I'm finding the cashmere to be scratchy - and I'm not even one of those wool-averse people!

Love everything except the color
Gorgeous sweater, sexy/delicate but w/ a sporty edge. But - it looks like I'm wearing the drugstore "tan-colored" pantyhose on top! Whoa! Wish this were a neutral camel.

Rather not wear my outerwear brand OUT
Thanks Add Down for fitted coats. Too bad - boyfriend thought it didn't look 'expensive' enough. And, he wasn't that impressed w/ the fit, and found the hood outsized and garish. Lastly - both of us found ourselves staring at the logo buckle. Actually, (truly lastly) unless you stick your hands in the pockets all the time, they puff in a very unflattering, paunchy way even though the rest of the sz 38 coat worked fine for me. I really wanted a navy coat, but alas the search is still on.

Wish they were 100% wool
Cute and versatile...but it being winter I really would love for these to be all wool! They could still achieve the thinness w/ a warmer fabric. In my opinion the silk gave the sweater a 'slippery' or sleek hand that I don't really appreciate in cold weather.

Cute - but not as much as in picture
Vince casuals are fab - this much we know. I'm an hourglass sz. 0 and this tee surprised me with its tighter-than-typical-Vince fit - the bust section was very restrictive. The neck hole looked weird on - I think a wider one that shows some collar bone structure would be more flattering. I really wanted to like this - in love w/ the fine stripes, and navy and gray - and *clap* for the cool styling w/ hunter-green cargos - but this just didn't look that great on me. Disappointing to a t-shirt queen...my other go-to brands are James Perse, Alternative, Splendid, and Bop Basics (please keep making your short-slv. tees).
